Bob B offered that we needed to continue some form of "Outreach" to the community and other clubs.
Howard stressed programs for the "Kids."
Bob O suggested we use a different day.... maybe the end of June... we could send a letter two Marshfield, Madison and Wausau.
The discussion centered on thinking this over and maybe look for a new date.
The Brat Fry came up and that was discussed. It was a real success this past year...There was a question about whether or not Al was going to support us with ace or if he is going to opt out.
Don said he liked the Ace location and would get with Al to see if he wants to participate.
Don asked if we need to work on the road? Roger said he would talk to Tim Hanson about filling in the ruts.
