We brought in $143 in tips at the Dragon Con party. Our current balance is around $1,000.00.
Events Coordinator’s Report
The party was a good one.
Public Relations Coordinator’s Report
The wristbands are in. If we sell them for $1 each at Pride, we’ll make 55 cents on each. Ken, Jamie, and Vandy Beth will do the setup. We will need additional volunteers.
Internet Coordinator’s Report
Special Interest Groups Reports
Dragon Con went well. We cannot vote on the bylaws amendment yet, because it wasn’t officially announced to the Yahoo! Group, which the bylaws still require.
The Fall Picnic will be November 9th, a Saturday, from 10:30 am to 3 pm in Glenlake Park. Ken will get the main food; otherwise potluck as usual, with the Iron Chef competition.
Hallowe’en: We’ll ask Paul Mitchell if we can have that party at his house on the 26th or 27th of October. Second choice will be the Rush Center, with third choice Robert and Jack’s house.
The meeting adjourned at 11:43 a.m.
Respectfully submitted by Vandy Beth Glenn, Secretary, Atlanta Outworlders.
