MOOV MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING March 12, 2007

 

Jerry Bruce, President called the meeting to order at 7:30PM. Jerry announced that the annual MOOV picnic will be June 2 at Sun City. He also announced that there will be three prizes plus a special award instead of the previous single award for accumulated points. Since board members will be excluded from competition, they will compete separately for one additional award.

Mimi Blaine will publicize the point awards for different activities. For example recruiting a new member will have a 50 point award since it is one of the best contributions to the club. Organizing events will have the next highest point award. See Mimi's list for a complete rundown.

Gerald Schlutter, Treasurer – Club assets are now at $1379.00

Richard Blaine, Community Service – Members can volunteer their services to Friends of Nevada, a group that helps the Forest Service and BLM projects. Activities include marking mountain trails to picking up trash along scenic byways. It is a year round function.

MOOV BOARD MEETING March 5, 2007

 

The meeting was called to order by President Jerry Bruce at 6:30PM.

The annual MOOV Picnic date has been set for June 2 and Richard Blaine has made reservations at the Sun City site that was used last year as well. Mona will put the details on the MOOV web page with the details as to time and place.

Jerry also mentioned the fact that since Courtesy Mazda is helping the club by providing a meeting place for the board members in addition to the “perks” club members have received, it would be important for club members to reciprocate by considering car purchases and service at Courtesy. An easel displaying pictures from some of the club events is now on display in the Courtesy Mazda showroom. It is hoped that the display will promote our club as well as make some Miata sales for Courtesy.

Mimi Blaine has refined the “point system” that will be used to determine awards for club members by listing the number of points awarded for different club activities. After Mimi's work, many of the board members realized that it would be easier for various members of the board to earn points in some specific areas than it would for general members. Separate prizes for the top board member and the top club member could solve that problem. The realization that hard numbers might create a close contest for some members complicated the idea of having just a single first place award.

All of the board members suggested ways to modify point assignments or raised various questions about complicating factors such as how to award points to husband and wife teams. Jerry suggested making things simple for board members by having one prize for board members to be determined by a vote. After listening to many suggestions Jerry proposed an award system for non board members of 1 st , 2 nd , and 3 rd prizes with a possible special award for a contribution that doesn't fit in any “point” category.

Mimi Blaine has obtained Nevada state incorporation papers for the club but additional federal forms would still be needed to change the bank account information. For the time being, the bank account will remain the same and Gerald Schlutter, Treasurer will continue to administer the account as before.

Richard Blaine, Community Service – He is looking into an organization called “Get Outdoors Nevada” which does clean up and conservation work.

Judy Simpson, Clothing – Tamara has a sample of the larger MOOV emblem but Judy did not get a cost figure yet.

Jan Bruce, Vice President – The board members will continue to be responsible for organizing the picnic but any member may help.

Mona Sagui, Webmaster – Rallye pictures are now posted on the internet.

George Rose, Secretary, if the secretary is unable to take minutes at meetings, the Vice President or her alternate will be the substitute.

Gerald Schlutter, Treasurer – Club funds are $1149.00

Dick Myers, Events – Richard Blaine discussed the last rallye and how to make the next one a little more challenging. Dick discussed organizing a Jubilee tour and show at Ballys for some time in April (20 person minimum). The club can also volunteer their help for the Las Vegas Grand Prix, although to stay together as a group, we would need about twenty volunteers. The Grand Prix is a three day event and food is provided for the volunteers. Unfortunately, it falls on Easter weekend this year. Richard also discussed the western Grand Canyon observation bridge that is set to open in late March on the Haulapi Indian Reservation as a possible club event.

Meeting adjourned at 8:30PM

MOOV MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING  February 12, 2007

The meeting was called to order around 7 PM at the Blue Ox by President Jerry Bruce. First on the discussion list was additional information about the club's new Point Award System. Although the point system has not been finalized, just about any club activity will earn a member or potential member points. One of the major goals for awarding points is to encourage member participation in club activities and the recruitment of additional members. As mentioned at the January meeting, awards will be given out at the annual Christmas party and will be substantial for the winners.

Jerry also discussed expanding the relationship with Courtesy Mazda by including the dealership in club activities. Courtesy could be used as a starting point for club events on that side of the city and future events and a picture board displaying club activities can also be on display at the dealership. Individuals who wish to plan events should coordinate with Dick Myers and give as much advance notice as possible.


Board Members with new business :

Gerald Schlutter, Treasurer: Club assets are $1059

Shirley Bujnovsky, Membership: The new membership of Shawn Bolin brings the membership total to thirty one. Renewals: Roy and Kathy Adkins, John Carlisle, Dick and Ginger Myers, and Gloria Bell. February birthdays: Areti Schlutter.

George Rose, Secretary described a download site for service manuals. The manuals were for Toyotas only but he will look into options for Mazda.

Shawn Bolin has a 97 Miata with a rattling sound which seems to be coming from the front of the engine. A mechanic told him the air conditioning compressor was bad ($1200)! Richard suggested it might be possible to just replace the compressor clutch.

MOOV MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING  January 8, 2007

The meeting was called to order around 7 PM at the Blue Ox by President Jerry Bruce. First on the discussion list was our continuing relationship with the Blue Ox and what type of relationship to have with Courtesy Mazda. It was decided to continue our current membership meetings at the Blue Ox and use Courtesy for special events such as tech demos, maintenance events, detailing days, and as a meeting place to start off or finish some of our driving events.  Some of the events at Courtesy may be open to non members and other Mazda vehicles as a promotion for our club as well as the dealership.

Jerry would like to present a photo display of club events to be displayed on an easel at Courtesy Mazda. He requested members to contribute photos of club activities and bring them to the next meeting. This should help with member recruitment and also allow a place to advertise upcoming events. Brochures with MOOV membership applications will also be on display.

Board member changes were announced. The board changes include Dick Myers replacing Johns Bujnovsky for Events. John will now take on the duty of librarian.  George Rose will replace Kathy Childs as Secretary.

Jerry and Dick want and need event suggestions from the membership. It is important to submit event plans to Dick or Jerry in his absence to coordinate with other people or groups involved.

Jerry summarized ideas put forth for membership drives. The club will be running more ads in the newspapers and a calendar of events has been displayed on Miata.net.

Jerry also announced plans for a “point award” system. Accumulation of points will depend upon participation in club meetings, events, recruitment, etc. Awards will be given out at the annual Christmas party and will be substantial for the winners. Mimi Blaine will be in charge of developing the details and record keeping.

Board members with new business included:

Gerald Schlutter,Treasurer: Club assets are $1102.51

Route instructions are not intended to get people lost and an emergency envelope can be opened in case one gets lost to display the finish at the Italian restaurant. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

 

New Business: Shirley will see about issuing new membership cards. Alex Postpischil discussed the availability of show tickets for Jubilee and ideas for a Newsletter.

MOOV BOARD MEETING     January 2, 2007

President Jerry Bruce called the meeting to order at Judy Simpson’s house at 7PM.

Vice President - Jan Bruce
Events - Dick Myers and his wife Ginger
Secretary – George Rose
Services - Richard Blaine
Treasurer - Gerald Schlutter
Clothing - Judy Simpson
Webmaster - Mona Sagui
Publicity - Mimi Blaine

President Jerry Bruce opened the meeting with a discussion about the club’s new relationship with Courtesy Mazda. Issues of where to hold monthly meetings (Courtesy vs Blue Ox) and additional events and membership aid from Courtesy were discussed. A decision was made to continue meetings at the Blue Ox since the club could lose a reserved time slot without a monthly commitment.

Dick Myers suggested scheduling additional sessions at Courtesy as well as a starting point for events on that side of the city.

Jerry started a discussion about the lack of attendance at MOOV events. Issues brought up by members included better turnouts by board members, increased membership, increased variety of activities and events that include other Mazda vehicles.

Mimi suggested a “point system” as an incentive for more club participation. Ideas about how to structure rewards based on points were discussed. Members elected, appointed or volunteering for club activities could receive points as well as attendance records.

The idea of reviving a newsletter as suggested by Alex Postpischil was brought up and the need for members to contribute to make it work.

Member recruitment methods using newspapers, dealerships, the Miata Forum and simply talking to other Miata drivers you encounter were suggested.

Dick Meyers handed out an extensive list of possible events for feedback.

Mona Sagui will be hosting the next board meeting on February 5.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:45PM

Jerry showed off a handy device called the Garage Butler. It sets the interval for how long your garage door stays up when you open it. For safety, it beeps just before it closes. It has a photoelectric cell so also closes the door when it gets dark. Cost is $100 installed.

George said he was interested, and asked if he could use a recorder instead of taking notes. No problem.

Jerry led a discussion of the upcoming Christmas Party, which will be held Dec 2 at Oasis Hotel in Mesquite. Jerry said he only has 3 registrations so far and hopes to receive more at the business meeting.  It was decided that the club will pay the $5 fee  for the Go-Karts and Mini-Golf.

Richard reported that the Chef’s Gala went well except for the auction payments with credit cards. Richard is going to suggest the club handle the credit card payments next year. This year, club members served as greeters and helped with the silent auction.

Jerry closed the meeting with a juicy tidbit – Mazda has a hydrogen fueled RX-8, that may be produced for not much more than the standard model.

MOOV BOARD MEETING      September 6, 2006    

President Jerry Bruce called the meeting to order at Richard & Mimi’s home  at 7 PM.

The following members were present:

President - Jerry Bruce
Vice President - Jan Bruce
Secretary - Kathy Childs
Services - Richard Blaine
Activities – John Bujnovsky
Membership – Shirley Bujnovsky
Clothing – Judy Simpson
Website – Mona Sagui
Publicity - Mimi Blaine

Jerry opened the meeting with a discussion of possible locations for this year’s Christmas Party. Richard reported on a good in-town option, the Highliner Restaurant. The cost would be about $20, but he wants to get more info before presenting it to the club. Jerry and Jan were thinking Mesquite would be a good place, and Jan presented rates for the Casa Blanca ($125 couple/ $75 single) and the Oasis ( $90 couple/ $55 single.) John and Shirley have stayed at the Casa Blanca, and Jan & Jerry said they would check out the rooms at the Oasis. Go-karts and mini-golf might be available, and John will check the cost, and report back.

Jerry reported that he has received no feedback from anyone about running for office for 2007.  Do the current board members and committee chairs want to stay on?  Do Dick and Ginger want to be on the board next year? What about George? John Corso? John Carlisle? It was suggested to invite potential new board members to the next board meeting.  Jan & Jerry offered to have a pot luck supper at their home on Oct 2. Jerry will invite potential board members.

Richard reported on Community Events. The Chef’s Gala will be Sept. 30 at the Venetian. HELP of Southern NV is looking for volunteers for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Richard will call the Marines about Toys for Tots. Maybe we can get a little publicity and attract new members.  Richard also suggested attracting new members by inviting new Miata owners to a picnic. Of course, it would help if we had the backing of a dealer.

Mimi sent our ad starting with “Auto Club” to the View.  We always appear on the R-J website, but not always in the print edition due to space constraints. Perhaps starting with “A” will move us to the top of the list, and improve our chances of getting our meeting ad in the paper.

John announced coming events:

bullet

Sept. 30 -  Chef’s Gala and Pahrump Grape Stomp

bullet

Oct. 15 – Lake Mead Run

bullet

Nov. 5 – Mojave National Preserve Run

bullet

Nov. 11 – Lake Mead Dinner Cruise?

Jerry has found someone who makes window decals. They are about 3” x 5” oval, self-adhesive (stick on the inside of the window,) and would cost $1 each for an order of 100.  It was moved, seconded, and approved that Jerry would order 100, and one would be given to each member, and the rest would be sold for $2 each.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:30 PM.

Thanks to Richard and Mimi for hosting the meeting and for the delicious dinner.

President Jerry Bruce opened the meeting with a discussion of the upcoming MOOV Picnic which will be held May 13 at 11AM at Sun City. Jerry has inventoried the items left over from last year's picnic, and he and Gerald will purchase needed items at Costco. The response to John's email asking members to RSVP with the food items they would like to bring to the picnic has been poor. So Jerry will email members and assign each member to bring a salad, side dish, or dessert.

Jerry received board approval to reimburse John $152 from the MOOV treasury to cover his losses  at Teddy's Bistro. A discussion followed on ways to prevent this from happening again. Richard said we should insist upon separate checks; and if the restaurant won't comply, we should choose another place. Jerry suggested next time we all make our own arrangements and pay separately. We decided NOT to return to Teddy's as they served and charged us for appetizers and salads we did not order, and wouldn't give us separate checks.

Jerry told the board about John Corso and Barry Goldman's recent bypass surgeries, and Sherry's thyroid cancer. Mimi suggested Kathy send them get well cards from the club. Kathy will purchase cards and bring them to next week's meeting for members to sign.

Kathy passed out minutes of the last board meeting.

Judy passed around the clothing catalog, and will purchase some MOOV items to display.

We have new members - Michelle and Scott Caron, who have a 2006 red Miata.

Richard announced that HELP of Southern Nevada is looking for volunteers for their golf tournament June 8. Richard also received a thank you letter from KLVX - TV to MOOV members who answered phones during their recent membership and fundraising drive. He gave it to Kathy to file.

Upcoming Events - 15 people have signed up for the Wynn Ferrari Tour on May 6. There was even a new Ferrari in the showroom the last time Richard stopped by. Our Tech Day is scheduled for May 21 at Dick & Ginger Myers home. Richard told us we are in for a treat. Their garages with lifts are perfect for our event; and Ginger has offered to make lunch.

Gerald announced we have $1531.91 in the MOOV treasury. He suggested purchasing portable air compressors, digital tire gauges, and LED flashlights for picnic door prizes. The board approved the expenditures. More discussion on the picnic followed. Each member gets one chance for the door prizes. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.

Thanks to Richard and Mimi for hosting the meting, and for the delicious dinner.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:45PM.

He will inventory them, and go shopping with Gerald and John to purchase needed items. We won't need charcoal as grills are gas. The club will provide drinks, chips, and  paper products. Members will provide their own entrees. It was also decided to divide the membership so some would bring a side dish, some would bring a salad, and some would bring a dessert. Richard said there are bocce courts and a swimming pool available for entertainment. Mimi suggested a game such as blindly guessing the car parts. We will also have door prizes. Richard suggested a stand up wine puller for $15.

Jerry gave us an update on tech day projects. He knows someone whose '03 Shinsen needs a timing belt. Richard suggested John Corso's  car which needs the timing reset and a clutch slave cylinder. Gerald offered his home for a timing belt tech session. Richard says he thinks the replacement times given by the manufacturer are very conservative as none of the belts he's replaced on schedule were in danger of breaking.

Gerald reported that MOOV has $1462 in the treasury.

Mimi reported that she contacted the R-J about our ad not always appearing; and was told there's not always room, and articles come first.

John asked Richard if he was going to the chili cook-off this year; to which Mimi replied that she had enough outhouse photos. John sent members an email about his and Shirley's upcoming trip to Touachin to see Grease August 5 and South Pacific August 26; and invited members to join them. It was suggested that we visit Sheri's Ranch again, perhaps in the fall.

Shirley received 1 new MOOV application; and 1 new prospective member will be at the business meeting/social. We currently have 37 memberships.

Jan received board approval to purchase  new raffle tickets.  Kathy suggested the Oriental Trading Co, who sell the double tickets for $3.50 a roll. Kathy will order the tickets.

The Callahan’s clutch chatter discussed at the last meeting turned out to be just a rotor that needed to be filed. Fortunately Midas fixed it for $100+ after People’s had estimated much more.

Allen said he recently ordered leather seat covers and they don’t quite fit. Richard recommended Brian, who recently recovered his seats.

Judy wanted to know why her car runs so hot. Richard explained about real temperature gauges vs. idiot gauges, which only have 2 positions - OK and too late, because it’s really a switch.

Richard also explained where to lube your electric windows when they start getting slow.

George said he has the latest and greatest GPS system, GARMIN. It fits in your pocket and is about $900 at Circuit City. George also asked if his window tint could be removed, and was told no.

Gloria said her Check Engine light is on again. Richard recommended a piece of tape J. Jerry suggested a new owner J.

Richard has pickpocket presentation ready to go, but still needs a facility with a big screen TV. Neighborhood & community centers were suggested as a possibility. John said he will check the Timbers, and Richard will check Sun City.

Richard plans to approach Harold at Courtesy Mazda to ask for support, as a joint venture with the other Mazda clubs in the area - Rotary Club, Mazda 6.

Some board members mentioned that Courtesy Mazda seems to have moved from its Sahara  location.

Richard suggested officers sit together at the head table at the business meetings. Jerry suggested we get a nameplate for the Vice President.

Board members discussed the Moab trip scheduled for the weekend of May 13-15. Some said they were leaving Thursday and spending the first night in St. George. Maybe the trip should be extended to include the north side of the grand canyon on the trip home. It should be great as 145 cars have already signed up.

Judy said she’ll have discontinued club items on sale at the business meeting.

John and Shirley are going to Gold Point NV the weekend of April 23  to see if we should have a run to the ghost town there. John suggested we might go over Memorial Day weekend for the chili cook off, and maybe stay in Tonopah and visit the museum too.

The next Board Meeting will be at Judy’s home on May 2.

The meeting was adjourned.

Thanks to John & Shirley for the use of their home, and the delicious dinner!J

MOOV MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING  March 14, 2005

 

PRESIDENT, JERRY BRUCE called the meeting to order.

We had an abbreviated meeting so our guest speakers from SCCA could present their program.

SERVICES, RICHARD BLAINE reminded members of the HELP Mardi Gras Party on April 9.

EVENTS, JOHN BUJNOVSKY announced several Day Runs:

March 17 - Richard & Mimi are going to Death Valley & welcome other MOOV members along.

April 3 - Mojave National Preserve Run - about 250 miles - Meet at Costco at 9:30 AM, stops in Primm, Kelso, Baker.

John said we need to pick location now for this summer’s picnic - especially if we’d like it at Mt. Charleston again this year. Send suggestions to John.

 

UPCOMING EVENTS ARE POSTED ON OUR WEBSITE http://www.miataownersofvegas.com  under Calendar

Jerry introduced our guest speakers - Fellow Miata Drivers and Members of SCCA: Art & Cindy, Mark & Suzanne, and Chris & Kelly.

 Jerry presented a pin to Cindy, former MOOV member, and designer of our logo. Art gave the club a great introduction to Autocrossing, and suggested we might like to hold a Miata event within their  their April SCCA 17 event. Bill Childs will be our point of contact with SCCA.

Autocrossing is driving a course marked off with pylons on a parking lot, for the fastest time. Cars are divided into classes so you are only competing against comparably equipped cars, and men and women run in separate classes as well. This is not wheel to wheel racing. This is a solo event, and safety is paramount. A typical event would go as follows: registration, tech inspection, walk the course, drive the course in heats, work the course when you’re not driving. You will usually get 4 or more runs. All you need is a driver’s license, a car, and a helmet. Loaner helmets will be available. Cost is $40, and a half-off coupon is available for first time drivers. So pump up your tires to about 40 psi, and come on out! April 17 - Registration is 7-8:30 AM, First Car Off 9AM. You can just watch April 17, and drive May 8, if you like. Complete Details at< www.lvrscca.org>

Aussie Miata Club items were raffled off, and Mona won the Blue Ox door prize.

The meeting was adjourned.

Jerry was contacted by former MOOV member Cindy, who is now with Las Vegas Region SCCA. She is organizing an autocross April 17, and would like to promote it at the next MOOV membership meeting. Perhaps we could present her with a personalized item as she designed the MOOV logo.

PRESIDENT, JERRY BRUCE called the meeting to order, and welcomed everyone, especially members we haven‘t seen for a while.

 Jerry announced that the Board is conducting a telephone survey, so please respond when you are called. We are looking for honest feedback and helpful suggestions on ways to improve the club.

Jerry recommended  the AAA Roadside Review CD, a computer driving test for seniors. It’s available at the local AAA office, free for members and $7 for others.

Membership retention was discussed at the February board Meeting, and it was decided to  start a Buddy System to insure all members feel included in the club.

WEBSITE, MONA SAGUI announced that we have a new web host so our site should stay up now.

SERVICES, RICHARD BLAINE sent out an email asking for volunteers for the HELP Mardi Gras Party April 9.

Richard is lining up  speakers for our meetings. He has a great police program on pickpockets on hold because it requires a big screen TV. Jan suggested checking the Nevada Power meeting room.

EVENTS, JOHN BUJNOVSKY was not present, but many events are in the works.  Check our website  http://www.miataownersofvegas.com  under Calendar.

 

Richard announced the MOAB trip May 13,14,15, and a discussion followed.  George and some other members are planning to attend. Make your hotel reservations now. They will be leaving Thursday night and go to St. George, then spend the whole next day on beautiful Miata roads to MOAB.

George announced an Autocross at the speedway.

 

The drawing was held for the door prize and Gerald won the Blue Ox dinner certificate.

 

There was no New Business, so the Tech Session began.

George showed his Deckmate Bag  - didn’t think it was quite worth $65, and an adapter piece for a hydraulic jack.

Gerald asked how long a Miata battery should last. A discussion followed, and it was the general concensus that the original battery is great, but many replacements are not. Jerry told of his good experience with Westco.

Premium vs. regular gas was discussed. Jerry said the compression ratio is controlling  and suggested using premium if the ratio is 10 (or 9 ˝) or higher. Chuck said he can only use premium in his ‘90.

Brands of spark plugs were discussed, with some members favoring stock plugs, and others NGK.

 

The next Business Meeting will be March 14, 2005.  Join us  for Dinner &  Social Hour at 6 PM, and stay for the Business Meeting at 7.

The Board continued the Membership Retention discussion from the previous meeting. Jerry gave each board member a copy of the telephone  questionnaire and membership roster with three names highlighted to call.  Kathy suggested a question about “other interests” on the initial MOOV application. Jerry suggested people match up interests on the website. John suggested adding “non Miata interests” as #13 on the telephone survey.  The Buddy Plan was further discussed.

Charity events were discussed. Judy talked to Larry Cohen about the car show, but he’s not interested unless there are 100+  cars and they’ll make money.  Richard said he’ll try to work with Harold on that. Richard will also email members about HELP’s Mardi Gras celebration.

Richard brought up ideas for guest speakers, including a police officer. He’s  looking for an AV equipped room for guest speakers, perhaps at the police station or library.  Judy suggested pub room .

Mona announced that we have a new website host, and so far, so good.

Kathy announced that the minutes of last month’s meeting are posted on the website.

Judy led a discussion on clothing markup to make a profit for MOOV.  It was decided to add $2 per item and $3.95 per order.  The small logo and name will be  included in the base price, but there will be an additional charge for the large logo.

Upcoming events were discussed. MOOVies night out will be Feb 25 at the Orleans. Helldorado Days parade to celebrate LV’s centennial will be May 14. Insurance restrictions make it difficult for us to participate, and that’s also MOAB weekend.

The meeting was adjourned.

MOOV BOARD MEETING  January 17, 2005

President Jerry Bruce called the meeting to order at his home at 6:55PM, and welcomed the new board members. The following members were present:

President - Jerry Bruce

Vice President - Bill Childs

Secretary - Kathy Childs

Treasurer - Gerald Schlutter

Membership - Shirley Bujnovsky

Publicity/Newsletter - Lisa McCord

Clothing - Judy Simpson

Services - Richard Blaine

Website - Mona Sagui

Telephone - Mimi Blaine

Events - John Bujnovsky

Greeter - Areti Schlutter

Jan Bruce

 

Jerry led a discussion on Membership Retention since we  are losing members - MOOV is down to 43 memberships going into 2005.  Suggestions for attracting and retaining members included newspaper ads, website, flyers, guest speakers at meetings, membership drive, and picnic. A Buddy Program and Exit Interviews were suggested to help provide a more personal touch. Buddy sign-up, beginning with the board members,  will take place at the Business Meetings,  Jerry will do telephone matching of new members, Shirley will conduct exit interviews, and Richard and Bill will investigate guest speakers. Brainstorming about speakers provided many  possibilities - Nascar drivers, police/safety, insurance, tech issues, entertainers, Mazda reps, and product reps such as Meguiars.

Lisa McCord will resume Publicity/Newsletter Chair as Ken Korotkin has been out of touch.

Jerry led a discussion on raising additional revenue for MOOV because membership is down. Suggestions included adding a MOOV surcharge to clothing & club items sold, and holding a Car Show. Judy will compile a new clothing list and chair the car show.

The Board discussed the format for upcoming meetings, and it was decided that the host would decide whether to serve desserts, dinner, or whatever.

Mona asked new officers to send her info so she can update the website. She also reported MOOV needs a new host for our website, and it will cost about $10 per month. It was moved, seconded, and passed that we pay $10 per month for our website.

Richard thanked everyone for a successful Toy Run, and discussed expanding  the event next year. He said HELP of Southern NV only needs 8 people for Mardi Gras, but he is also looking for other Community Service ideas. He also announced that because of the growing interest in the MOAB event, people should reserve hotel rooms now.

John has 28 reservations for Backstage With the Beauties on Jan. 22,, and is trying to arrange lunch before the event.

Shirley  reported that we can no longer afford to give  away the magnetic car plaques to new members as the cost has become prohibitive.  It was suggested that we give pins or hats, and order more car plaques to be sold at a profit to the club.

Thanks to Jan and Jerry for hosting the meeting; and for providing a delicious selection of soups, snacks, and desserts.

The next Board Meeting will be Feb. 7 at Bill & Kathy Childs home.

MOOV BOARD MEETING  August 24, 2004

Members in Attendance:

 

Jerry Bruce, President

Gerald Schlutter, Treasurer

Sally Seifert, Secretary

Judy Simpson, Clothing Chair

Lisa McCord, Publicity Chair

Richard Blaine, VP

Mimi Blaine, Telephone Chair

John Bujnovsky, Event Chair

Shirley Bujnovsky, Membership Chair

 

Discussion:

Jerry started the meeting out about reaching members that do not have email addresses in regards to events, etc.  Lisa will mail out a roster with the newsletter to all of those that do not have email address, so that they can contact any board member or member.

Next discussion was regarding John’s position as Event Chair.  The member who will do all of the coordination, planning, etc will complete all events from this point on.  John will only post the event in the calendar and provide a guideline how to handle an event.  Only the Board members will handle the Christmas party as a group.

Discussion was then brought up about possible incentives for running and event, more to be discussed on this matter.  Jerry also reminded us that when we run an event we could use $30.00 of the clubs fund towards that event.   It is up to the person running the event to decide how to use the $30.00.  They must however let Gerald (treasurer) know how they intend to use this $30.00.

After a lengthy discussion, it was agreed that a “Membership” consisted of one (1) carload.  Therefore, when the club provides prizes, there will be only one prize per membership, which would be one (1) card load.  The only exception will be the monthly membership meetings at the Blue Ox.

Jerry brought up the subject of having an official ‘greeter’ at every meeting to meet new ones coming to the meeting.  It was agreed that the “Membership Chair” should be responsible for this task.  However, they can appoint someone to cover for them in the event they may not be able to be at the meeting.

More discussion was brought up about this year’s Christmas Party.  After tallying up those who responded to John’s email, the party will be in town this year.  We are still looking into places for it to be held.  More will be announced at the next membership meeting.

Meeting was adjourned.

Members in Attendance:

Jerry Bruce, President

Gerald Schlutter, Treasurer

Sally Seifert, Secretary

Judy Simpson, Clothing Chair

Lisa McCord, Publicity Chair

 

Discussion:

Jerry brought up the subject that was discussed at our last member meeting, of providing name badges or car plaques for new members.  A vote was taken of those present and it was the consensus of all those present to leave it the way it is, providing one car plaque for each new membership.  Members can purchase their own pin.  The club will purchase some stick on labels for those who wish to put their name on them when attending any club functions or events.  More will be discussed at the next member meeting 6/14/04.

Jerry purchased 2 each 2-tier holder for the new brochures.  Judy will take these to the dealers and ask for them to be displayed at the cashiers box.  She will also check to see if we can leave some by the Mazda brochures or possibly put one in glove boxes of the new cars.

Jerry mentioned the picnic in July and Christmas party, more information coming soon.

Judy emailed Tri Mountain regarding clothing purchase.  She will advise the club when she hears back from them.

Next Board meeting will be announced at a later date.  Meeting convened.
