Discussion on a location for equipment. Deb reported her friend has a shed with a dirt floor to rent for $50 a month but would need to leave her own equipment in the same shed. Another large building is available to purchase for equipment as well as meetings. He wants $125,000.00 but there is an offer before us and the person is trying to get financing. We'll wait and see. Ed suggested we could get a grant to build or buy our own building. Deb wanted to be involved in working the grant and getting something of our own. Ed made a motion to create a committee to look into writing grants for that purpose. Deb seconded. Motion passed.
Ed explained some issues in traveling to the last MT Council meeting in Boseman. Unorganized, not enough time for the meeting, treasurer had walked out. They are allowing anyone to rent the cases for $100 when we pay twice that for our dues to the MT Council and only see the use of the display cases. Should we pay the dues or opt out? Discussion followed with Kathy Meuchel making a motion to remain until the next meeting and see if it gets better. Deb Strickland seconded. Motion passed.
Faith let the club know that Sharlene Farley was very appreciative of the money we sent for Wayne's passing.
Dale Broszeit checked into advertising out meetings to the public in a local paper. The Bitterroot Star will list our monthly meetings for free and Dana Jong will sent in the meeting dates and times.
Darrell announced he is surprised we now have over 1000 people following our facebook page. He has stated on facebook that it was created for our local rock club.
SHOW: Next years show, Darci Rainey backed out for now due to family issues. Deb Strickland will send out the letters this month and Darci will help when and where she can. The first Show committee meeting will be in January. Darrell Coyle will be the floor planning again with Faith Farley as treasurer.
Tommy Burge will check into the Old Victor Firehouse allowing us to use their hall for our November meeting with a possibility of using it for our Christmas Potluck.
The next meeting will be Nov. 14th.
Deb Strickland won the 50/50, $18 but donated $9 back to the club. Thank you Deb!
