New Business –
Jim Bubash has researched where to have the SCTM holiday party.  After some discussion, he made the following motion:

To have the SCTM holiday party at the Lemay Pavilion on December 14th.  The club will spend $200.00 for the party.  A box for donations from the SCTM members will be at the entrance of the Lemay Pavilion on the night of the party.  Suggested donation from each club member is $10.00.

The motion passed.

Announcements –
