Unfinished Business:

  • Steve Winheim – White board – He sent an email last week with a link showing the photo and description of the white board replacement he suggests the club purchase. The replacement he suggests is a little narrower than our current board, but it has other features our current board does not have.  The replacement is magnetic.  The cost is $78.99.  The stand for the new one is a tripod and our current board has 4 legs.  The new board comes with a  set of markers.  Victor Mattison moved to purchase the replacement white board.  Adam Kutell seconded.  The motion was approved unanimously
