Fred will send out e-mail reminders as needed. Hall rental, publicity.
Business cards. Connie brought up the possibility. Some discussion. Need more info and an example.
Discussed possibility of a better, moderated e-mail list manager. Current list is very large > 150 names. This makes it hard to e-mail the group using the usual tools from ISPs. Fred will make a proposal for web hosting that will allow contracola.org to be a self-named e-mail. The group will consider consider spending some amount for the hosting.
Noted: 2nd Saturday in November is a good target date to plan for a special Saturday dance or dance weekend. The State Museum has had change in management/interest and may be more willing to negotiate.
There was a suggestion to hold board meetings at a different time -- before dance, after dance, before dance during pot luck. Fred will e-mail suggestion. Maybe January for a tryout for a different board meeting.
