              • Council Elections are coming. Bylaws state the existing council's term ends on January 31st. An article is forthcoming for the web site along with a member-wide email calling for candidates and detailing the voting, pending the outcome of the next point below:[/*:m]
              • Ian suggests amending the Bylaws to have the council change over in the middle of summer instead of new year - making it easier to avoid any major change over during Rally planning, and also due to much less club, holiday, and family activities occuring during that time. The club could propose and vote on an amendment to that section of the bylaws prior to this year's council elections to move the date change to a summer date.[/*:m]
              • Ian would like to see the Featured Photo return to the homepage. Done & done![/*:m][/list:u][/*:m][/list:u]

Sorry I couldn't make it, I was frantically trying to deal with family issues last night (pneumonia), and was in line at the pharmacy when the meeting started and was 7pm before I even realized (remembered) it was going on..

Thanks for the Kudos..
