Erik called and said there will be a WGHS in White Oaks PA next to King of Prussia. it will be on January 12th and 13th. Snow a concern. Bobbie may have to work. The Egg Harbor trip will be a good test without the trailer.
It will be in Springfield Massachusetts on the last weekend in January - 26th and 27th. Dave has waded through the snow in the past. We are going to look into it. We don't know when the winter Greenberg show will be. Snow is a concern for these winter shows. Also there are many shows in December and January.

Frank – President.
Mike – Vice President.

Dave – Standards.
There were no nominations from the floor Motion: Jerry moved that the slate be accepted as stated. John seconded. The vote was unanimous.
Dan could not make the party so we could not ask him for the clubs startup information. We need ideas - who to invite Southern, Brooklyn, Keystone. We will have dinner. Maybe a dance. We will have a layout. For a big layout, we may need the weekend to set it up. Joel would know the date that the club started. We could do it Thanksgiving? We could get t-shirts or hats.
Frank will pick up a platform truck and drop it off at my house.
Post meeting note: I have the truck but I need to put it together.
Discussion of batteries. Typically the club does not provide them. The are personally owned.
