New standard nothing sold to dealers until after Feb. 15th. Sell tables first to members PRESENT at the February meeting, then to other club members. Then to dealers after Feb. 15.
Larry will write up some rules and e-mail them out for review and come up with a proposal for amendment to the Clubs by-laws.
Larry: Club displays at the Show if anyone wants to put out a display, well have some designated table space for the Club. The club also has a couple of cases which can be used for displays. (Catherine currently stores two of these, in working order. Charly has the third one, in need of repair ?)
At next months meeting, get a volunteer list for help at the Show.
It would be good to have a cabinet in the meeting room, to store Club items. At a previous meeting, it was mentioned that the Club had a cabinet many years ago. Did anyone investigate this?
John T. is working on the Club Brochure. Anyone with ideas, please contact John T.
John D: Any news about including the club brochure in the packet of flyers that come in the mail? Gave sheet about advertising in this to Bob.
John T has added Don Johnsons letter to the Website - click on About the Club.
Dues for 2004 are now DUE.
So far, 15 members have paid up.
It was suggested that we get a list of the other clubs in the area (from ANA or NOW) and send them a letter about a month in advance, notifying them of our Coin Shows.
