Scheduling and Events

  1. A new event was brought to our attention by Ron Swenson. Jim Logan, a friend of TYP356 mentioned he would like to have an event at Reitzel Porsche in Norwell, MA where he works in October. This was to be part of a celebration of the Dealership being open for 35 years. Jim O’Hare was requested by Ron Swenson to follow up with Jim Logan.
  2. The upcoming events on the Club website were discussed. Due to the fact that the events are displayed on the Club website, that they are publicized by e-mail and that there are a significant number of events they will not be reviewed separately in these notes. Please refer to the schedule of events on the Club website and the customary e-mail channel.

Old Business

  1. Bill Collins submitted a list of parts, suggested a method of organizing these parts and itemized the cost for each part that he felt should be added to the existing travel kit. Because of the fact that the Club trips are over for this year, it was decided that the actual purchase of the parts should be postponed until 2006.

New Business

  1. A donation of $100 to the Hospice in Fall River, MA in memory of John Merrifield was approved.
  2. Ralph Hadley was unanimously approved as a Member at Large.
  3. Ralph Hadley was appointed to be in charge of “freshening up” the website on a periodic basis. This consists of changing the pictures, write ups and general content of the website.
  4. Several locations were discussed for the December Board/Dinner meeting site. Dick Chiasson was put in charge of selecting a place.

The October Board Meeting will be held on October 4, 2005. The time and location will be announced at a later date.

With no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:05 p.m.
Respectfully submitted,
Jim O’Hare, Secretary
