Minutes for the April 21, 2002 Meeting

Officers' Meeting:  started- 6:35pm    ended - 7:32

Attendance: Oliver, Chris, Jen, Katrina, Sean

Road rally - we didn't have any drivers, but were able to combine with
another town.

Decided to take people off the roster if they haven't come to meetings in a
long time and who haven't paid dues. --- A postcard or e-mail would be sent out to
the people who were going to  be taken off  the roster, notifying them of their
immanent removal from the list.  The notification would tell the people how much
they owed in dues.  They would then have to call or e-mail Chris, telling him if they
wanted to stay in venture.  They would then have to come to the next meeting,
and pay off the dues that they owed.

Jen handed out business cards that had the crew website on them so people
would stop asking her what the address is.  Several comments were made that
she was a little too excited for rectangular pieces of paperboard.

We should try to do a one night camping expedition in the Stow town forest so
we cant set up stuff for Philmont, and do a run through of what we should
have in our packs for Philmont.

Youth Leadership Awards Dinner - May 22nd at Nobscot - $12 per person

discounts to scouts/large groups, so the more people that go, the better.  We

September 22nd - First Nighter. We need to have one because a lot of people
are going to be cut from the roster, and some of the new members aren't/won't
be very active. It also has to be advertised that you can be 18 and still be
a "kid" (not a technical "adult").  Posters and flyers will be put up in
schools and public areas to advertise , we (the crew) still have to organize
it, like what we will do exactly.
