Pizza Party

February 14, 2008

The meeting started at 8:15PM.

Ken Smizinski welcomed the 38 people in attendance. Everyone enjoyed the many variations of pizza and pop arranged for by Bob Burhop.

Minutes of the November General Meeting were approved as written and copies of those minutes were made available to anyone who wanted to review them.

Bob Hoge gave the Treasurer's Report as printed in the February "Bird-News". The Club has 112 members as of 2/14/08.

Ken reported on the development of the CTCC website and said that three vendors have purchased links to their sites. He urged members to view the site: www.CTCC9.com.

Ken discussed the various activities planned for the year (see elsewhere in this and future editions of "Bird-News" for times and dates).

Bob Hoge presented the 2008 proposed Budget. He explained it line-by-line. The budget includes several lines for Club subsidies of events to benefit members using funds saved on the newsletter printing costs as well as a $300 donation to the Rose City Thunderbirds for the International Convention. The Membership will vote on the budget at the March 13, 2008 membership meeting at Russell's Bar-B-Q.

The March 13th Membership meeting will include the election of Directors. Those present were asked to think about running for a seat and to advise Ken if interested.

Ken advised the group that, after much thoughtful discussion, the Board decided that the Club will not host a Regional Convention in 2009. While many members were enthusiastic about the prospect of attending the event, there were not enough members willing to commit to the time and energy required to produce the event.

The meeting officially adjourned at 8:50PM.

-- Respectfully submitted, Liz Werth, CTCC Secretary
