Ad in Pigeon Digest

  • Discussed who will handle the birds. Phil says he is building a loft just for futurity birds, plus John said he will take up to 40 birds

  • the auction will be only local
  • full page B&W ad: $280
  • half page B&W ad: $185 (we would publish this twice for a total of $370
  • Motion made for half-page ad, seconded and approved

Discussion: Treasurer's duties and report need better definition. John S was elected Treasurer, and has followed the general rules. By-laws need to be updated to provide more specificity. Gary, as VP, has the action to set up a committee to discuss needed updates to the club's by-laws.
