TCDXA MEETING MINUTES

May 18, 2009

Sunshine Factory Restaurant

New Hope, Minnesota

 

 

CALL TO ORDER:

 

@ 6:10 by Mike, NODK

 

ATTENDANCE:

 

17 members.

 

OLD BUSINESS:

 

According to reports, the on-again, off-again Glorioso FR/G operation by the French is back on scheduled for July. Our original donation of $250 was returned several weeks ago due to the inactivity. If this operation actually takes place, well

donate after the fact.

 

NEW BUSINESS:

 

Members returning from Dayton reported sales were brisk in the flea market both days. WEK, KGX, and KSQ said sales topped previous years at Dayton.

The crowds were comparable to last year, which is good news considering the economy. The monster crank up tower by the Japanese company LUSO was the talk of the show. Watch for more info on this product in coming weeks.

 

The next time you visit the club website www.tcdxa.org you will notice some changes. Changes we hope will make it easier for visitors to navigate around the

 

site. Please report any bugs you discover to k0juh@comcast.net

Currently the club does not meet in July and August. The possibility of adding June to the list was discussed. If it happens, it would take place in 2010. Summer in MN is a busy time, and scratching the June meeting might be a good move. Stay tuned.

 

Mike, NODK, asked for ideas on programs for the meetings. Anyone in the club who has some thoughts on programs can contact Mike at mikeham73@q.com
