Minutes of the February 2010 Meeting
The regular monthly meeting was called to order on February 9, 2010, at 7:05pm by Vice President, Richard Sink. The members present approved the minutes of the September meeting. Richard Sink gave the Treasurer's report of behalf of Carol Lankford which was approved by the members present. We welcomed new members Mr. and Mrs. Garry Woods. There are currently 63 members.
Norma Scott with Ozark Public Television, KOZJ, joined us to talk about Vettes in the Midwest 2010. She thinks the event will receive a grant from the Convention Bureau. In order to receive that grant she said several critera needs to be met. One suggestion from the Bureau was to offer Cash prizes for different things such as longest distance, oldest car, etc. She suggested we have several different committee's to coordiinate the different events so we wouldn't run into the problems that occured last year. Mary Lou Bruggeman suggested we offer more door prizes. A meeting with Norma, Bruce Layman and Larry Lankford will be scheduled to talk about this event.
