I would like to report to all of our members; your Board and Committee members are working very hard for you. The last two board meetings have been very enthusiastic toward reaffirming our clubs direction. Tino Mingori and Tom Brockmiller have spent a lot of their time evaluating how our events work and should work. Tino gave a retrospective look plus a prospective assessment of what works and what we should stay away from. We have all agreed unanimously that Tino's review is quite accurate. Our mission statement in our bylaws states very accurately why we exist and how we should focus our efforts and direction.
