    A bit scrambled but otherwise OK.
    We need a better strategy for the business side.
    For new people it may appear to be a disorganized club.
    We need to start thinking more like non-profit organizations if we want to start gaining more goods and money.
    Also I would like to thank the staff members for the opportunity for to serve as the Contest Coordinator.
