It's been about 3 months since you have heard anything from us, that's when we informed you that at the April meeting we were holding elections for next years board. Well we try to intice you to show up by offering free drinks and that someone would win a $50 voucher for the coming years trips. Very few of you showed up, which gave those that did great odds of winning that $50 voucher, it was won by Don D.So we need your help, what will it take to get more people to show up to the meetings? Now we understand that many of you don't live in the city but what's the problem with the rest of you? Just a bad day, you can't make Thursday's (what would be a better day)?Jason is President again and DUKES is doing Trips again and EVERYTHING else is being spit between us. So help is needed. We will do what we can but when things like family and jobs demand our time there is NO ONE right now to pick up the slack unless you are willing to help. It's fine if you don't wish to be on the board and make a year long commitment there are may tasks that you could help us with thereby making it easier for us. 1) Monitor the Pine Point Yahoo email, go in there once or twice a week. 2) We have a Kickoff/Membership party in September that we could use some help with, planning, running, help sending out letters (or emails) helping to get the many door prizes we give out.
If it's just the two of us it becomes a job and it's not suppose to be that way. OK I'm off my soapbox.
