— OLD BUSINESS —
John Wulf reported that the test session went well. Six people attended and 5 got their Tech ticket. The next session will be April 22nd.

Doug said that he and Chris had met with the reporter that did the fisical court meetings. This was just to give her our side of the story and let her know the whole story of how we were treated and what we had been told for months leading up to the finding out about us having to leave the Red Cross building by reading in the paper. She is now aware of how the club was treated.

John said that some members met a the building to start packing up the clubs property. The trailer held it all. The tower came down the following weekend so all our stuff has been removed. The antenna and tower is being stored at Doug’s house. The trailer is located at the legion property.

John said he had gotten a letter from the American Legion to offer a place to meet and for our radio station.

— NEW BUSSINESS —
For those that attended the meeting on the move to the legion building knows there were lots of questions. I could not get everything wrote down to put here in the minutes.
The main things were do we want to move to the American Legion and the MOA along with dues. First we needed to see if the members wanted to do the move. The pros and cons were talked about so Andy made the motion for the club to move to the legion. Mike 2nd the motion. Members were all in favor.
Now the MOA, some members wanted some new language put in. Chris asked all if they had ideas for changes put them on the copies of the MOA he had handed out to everyone. Then give to John so he could meet the the legion commander to get the changes made. When John gets the new MOA he can get to Chris so he can email out to get members approval. John mentioned that the legion wants to do a big signing thing with the paper doing a story on it and what the relationship does for the community.
Now for the dues that needs more explanation. This was a big point. The dues are for joining the post not the AMERICAN LEGION that is seperate thing if you qualify and want to. John went into this but members wanted more info on this topic. So more will be coming to help all understand.

The meal before the next meeting March 7th will be held at Cheddar’s 6pm. The meeting will be held at the methodist church again starting at 7:30pm.

John Wulf made motion to close meeting. Bernie 2nd and the meeting closed at 9:40pm.
