Hamfest Aug 2 Elections 2nd meeting Sept, need to identify the nomination committee leader to get ready.  

Tom W4TKW
- Hamfest chairman, Friday afternoon Aug 1 is setup.

Bingo is an apparent club business issue. Bingo prizes leftover from last year are available at cost, but no official valid receipts are available, ~ $400. Previous years, the raffle income exactly balanced the bingo prizes, no net income is generated for funding the radio club community support activities. Bingo prize value is disproportionate compared to the premiere hamfest activities.
A proposal to eliminate bingo from hamfest activities this year was wholly supported by the officers, board, and club attendees.
