Charlie Demmy asked for an increase in the amount he could spend on door prizes for the Banquet. Steve Liimbert moved that the amount be increased from the current amount of $50 to $100. Motion passed.
Alan Lesher moved that between $40 and $50 be approved to reimburse John Rudy for part of the monthly cost of the Adobe software that John uses for the publication of The Squeal. Motion passed.
The request by National that we provide data about our AutoX participants was discussed. We do not routinely collect member numbers for walkups. To do so may cause some complications next year for registration.
A discussion was held about the possibility of awarding jackets instead of trophies for awards for certain categories of recognition. The cost and the complications involved diminished the interest in the proposal. No action was taken.
