January Meeting Minutes (1/11/2008)

The January 2008 MASA meeting was held on the 10th at the Science Museum.

In case you didn't realize, 2008 is MASA's 10th Anniversary year!

7 people attended the meeting.

The January launch will be on the 26th at White Bear Lake.

  • A brainstorming session was held to come up meeting topics for most of the year.  (See the Events calendar for info.)
  • NARCON stuff was discussed.
  • Status of TARC teams was discussed.
  • The 2008 schedule of club events was discussed.
  • The March launch will be held at Apple Valley High School.
  • The waiver for the Nowthen sod farm has been renewed for 2008.

2008 Officers

  •  Since there was only one candidate for each club office, MASA custom allowed those candidates to be placed directly into office by a majority vote of acclamation of those club members present at the meeting.
  • A motion was made and seconded to appoint Ted Cochran Chairman Pro-Tem for the purpose of appointing club officers.  This motion was approved unanimously by an oral vote.  A motion was made and seconded to place the three officer candidates directly into office and skip the electoral vote.  This motion was approved by an oral vote.
  • The 2008 MASA club officers are:  President - Alan Estenson, Vice President - Carol Marple, Secretary/Treasurer - Rick Vatsaas.

Show -n- Tell

  • No one brought any show and tell items, but we all admired Caleb's spiffy hat. <grin>
