He mentioned that depending on the number of attendees the school van would be available to take them, Rob offered that if the van would not hold all he would make his 11 passenger van available. Eric also asked the club to consider becoming a Bronze Level ($100) sponsor for the event, Marie asked time to check the budget.

Meeting:  Breakfast Bowl! Going into today's match the competition stands at 200 for the Whiz and 175 for the Wizards. It was a challanging session ~


But with luck and new brains in the mix the Whiz Kids continued their lead ~ to finish this month's round at 245 to 200 for the Breakfast Wizards! Five months to go! Plenty of time for the Wizards to overtake!

5K Race Plans:

                  Rob brought us up to date on the 5K race/walk plans slated for May 17th, the committee has leads set and the priorities at this time are a) To get the word out inviting  as many people as we all can, b) we will need 10 club voluteers for the race day so free up your calendars for the morning of May 17th, and prepare to respond to the leads when requested:Sponsorship, Food , marketing. Congratulations to the Race Committee, there was a lot of energy apparent in the discussion.

50-50 Raffle:  50% of the pot goes for club administration and 50% goes to the
