GUESTS AT  JUNE MEETING: Peggy Lawrey, TimBischoff, Lisa Rains, Allen Marshall

Savanahland has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 6, 2003 from 5-7 PM. They have changed their policy and now are open to the public during the day. In order to have a private party (20+) we had to schedule it for the evening.  If it rains, they will let us come for 1 hour, 5-6 pm, and have the chimp at the covered pavilion.  The price is $10.50 per person for two hours – I think they will charge less for one hour. 



(Thanks to Kathy Hinkle for taking the minutes for the June meeting.)

Dan Paulson called the meeting to order at 7:15 pm..

Steve Brewer proposed setting up a 2nd/new domain because of problems with the webmaster. He said Sarah had been getting phone calls about our site being down. Motion was made and seconded.
