Would it be possible to have a different volunteer at each meeting to take notes and give them to the secretary to post? Without the notes it is hard for those that couldn't attend to see what decisions or issues come up. It is also hard for us to remember what decisions were made. Not trying to make it harder, just trying to help.

As for a secretary, I'm not going to do that too....

The problem Larry is that for the duration the club has not had an official Secretary, who would be taking notes and posting them. Kenny has been the fill-in on this position, but wasn't there officially. For the most part this club is being run by volunteers and not elected officials. Not exactly by-law to the letter activity, but because Kenny is generally always at the meeting, as am I, we've made do.

My brother is going to come this direction from Tucson while we have the mini-meet and then we will head down to Reno for Hot August Nights. Is it okay if he brings his beautiful 64 Fairlane Thunderbolt Clone to the meet?

My brother Jerry and his 64 Fairlane will come since Kenny said it's mandatory. It is also his birthday on the 26th so it should be fun. I am attaching some pics of his car and hope they come through.

Day late, dollar short, but I agree with Kenny. Because it is not a national club meet, the more the merrier as long as they are FoMoCo related. I think we need to draw the line there. But last year we had a couple Fairlanes and some Merc's and that's OK by me. As long as we get them to sell those other Fords and buy a Falcon, we'll have done our job.

I sent out some newsletter copy to the national club and hopefully we'll see something in the newsletter in the next month or so. I've never, ever, received replies from them, but material magically appears regardless. So keep your eye out there.

There has been some back discussion about posting information and making sure everyone knows things are happening as planned. We'll discuss some more about this at the meeting on Feb 18th and get a firm grip on the duties, but hopefully we are all pitching in as needed to make this meet a success. It takes us all. And if you have doubts about what you are needing to do, or have time to volunteer, or are struggling to keep up with your day-job and doing this, let us know as soon as you can! If you are not comfortable discussing it in the open, you can always PM me.



I've been trying, as I can, on this artwork stuff, but unfortunately it is tough, since the tools are on my work computer. So far things are not easily transporting over from the Mac world to the PC world I live in. And I've never needed to work on PrintQuality stuff - always web-based. Hope to work through it by starting from scratch, but there is a chance I'll come up short with the quality we saw from Joanna, who did this for a living. Won't be for lack of trying though.

Since I am definitely in the stupid range when it comes to helping you with the visual material. Maybe some of our members know of someone in their family who could help. I am concerned that Roger is going to burn out on all this stuff, and we all know this club would collapse without him. We have to give as much help as possible, and if necessary can we have a professional help, and we all donate to cover the cost that is needed. Larry

Agree with Larry....
- I'm willing to pitch in for a pro if needed
- What software are you using Roger?

I had decals made up for the underneath hood area that didn't cost too much. Here is the site that did the work and they may be able to help us. I am willing to chip in to have professional help to give Roger some well deserved breaks. If I knew what we needed I will contact them, get a price and then show what it would cost to our members.

Thanks for all the offers and support. I'm currently at home sick with some crud that seems to be making the rounds. Saw Larry at Costco today, in fact, as I was there picking up some fresh cold meds and he mentioned his graphic people.

The art sent to me by Joanna was complete and was slowly finding ways to make things work - did enough to get the web banner done - but just can't find time to dig into it lately. My key associate at work retired and the new kid who replaced him has a lot left to learn, and I've been tasked to help him.

Anyway, the applications used were Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. Joanna worked in Mac and I'm a PC guy. I managed to convert the Mac fonts with a tool I found, but had about concluded starting from scratch might be faster for me than making the other bits cooperate.

Still unsure what all else we need. We all felt rather than a calendar we'd do a small poster. Maybe a 11x17 Kinkos thing will be fine. And a dash plaque. We also need the poster for the swap meet and Bellevue show.

So there you go. Back under the covers...

Hope your crud clears up soon. And I'm sorry I don't have more time to help. New puppy has been keeping me busy with...all that entails. I created on event on our Facebook page and sent invites to the 77 members.

http://www.rainierfalcons.com/forums...ead.php?t=2640

One thing I noticed was the mention of a 50/50 raffle. Did we end up doing that? I kind of recall some discussion about whether there would be enough interest to make a decent pot.

i won't be able to make the March meeting (dog training class) but maybe you could discuss interest in a special meeting to go over the details of the meet. Who's doing what and all that. Maybe a weekend, coffee shop meeting? There were a few things that fell through the cracks so maybe we could develop a checklist.

I am not sure, but I think someone was getting the dash plaques. Never mind. Kenny, the meeting is a good idea and the checklist is a great idea. I will look into getting the dash plaques unless someone else already is. Just let me know?? I am checking and will find out the best quality for the best price. Do we need more than 50?? Crap, I need a beer to help with this headache.

I got a hold of Tristate trophies and we can get 50-100 dash plaques for $1.00 a piece and $25.00 for setup and $17.95 for shipping of 50-100. So for 100 it would be $142.95.
