The regular business meeting of OutWorlders was held on Sunday, September 19, 2010, at 11:30 am at Atlanta Diner. Edward DeGruy, Wm Boozer, Cassie, Justin Williams, Vandy Beth Glenn, and Ken Fernandez were present. President DeGruy called the meeting to order.
Dragon*Con went very well, especially considering how late the table was secured. Next year we should have contingency plans in case we don’t get a table. Several new memberships were bought at the table.
Vice President’s Report
We have $3145.25.
Ten new members joined at Dragon*Con. A $67.67 payment was made to Vandy Beth for beverage expenditures for the Sunday night party. Another $56.80 was paid out from something in April.
Events Coordinator’s Report
Dragon*Con was a success. The party was fun. Attendance was high. There was one minor unpleasantness involving someone who drank too much.
Bil, who was our bouncer, had to turn away many underage people, which resulted in big crowds of people hanging out in the hallway outside the suite. This is something we could look into addressing in the future.
