Suggestions and Discussions

     Covenant Presbyterian Church will allow us to use theirs

     have candy canes for the kids, maybe by Santa; most thought it should be
     as the kids are leaving (too sticky); Bob thought Kraynaks might supply
Personal Contacts

     they are working on for participation

   The Greenville Model Train group is not interested in participating

     meeting. Contact Dave when you have a frim commitment from anyone.

   All members should ask for any kind of gift when opportunity is there

   John asked how door prizes are distributed. Answer: All attendees get a
     ticket to put in the container next to the prize they'd like to win. One
     ticket is drawn from each container at the end of the show.
   Gordon will ask Kraynaks for a door prize contribution
   Ken will determine where to place Door Prize display at the show
   Dave asked Bob S. to help him since Chuck B. is ill
