Club discussion regarding the fundraising events at Clay Coyote and Crow River Winery. Both fundraisers have advantages and disadvantages to them and it’s hard to find enough volunteers to fill all the shifts for both events. The club voted, by narrow margin of 8 to 6, to keep Crow River Winery and to stop Clay Coyote for next year. The 48 in 48 event is expected to grow and replace the funds lost to the club by not serving food at Clay Coyote.
Bryan Hansel Night Skies Photography – this workshop is set for August 26 from 7:30 pm until midnight. The cost is $60.00 per person and volunteer hours cannot be used to offset that fee. The workshop will include photographs of sunset, the blue hour, star trails, light painting, the Milky Way, and one on one instruction with Bryan. Those members interested in taking this workshop need to contact Barb after the meeting and make their payments. Email reminders will be sent to the participants closer to the event and the event will be posted to the Club’s event calendar.

- Tamron duffel bag
- North Shore Scenic Railway – 4 tickets

- 4 free memberships to our club for next year
The Club discussed the possibility of buying club shirts, probably polo shirts, with the club logo on them so that club members performing volunteer activities in the community can wear them. The idea was a popular one and will be checked into further for costs.
