Introductions: The Secretary announced that a majority of member ballots had been received with all votes being “Yes”, as to admitting Ray & Katie Gonzalez to Active Member status of the Club.
Thus Ray & Katie Gonzalez became voting members for this meeting. The Gonzalez were then initiated into the club by Chairperson pro-tem, Linda Larsen.

The Chairperson then changed the order of the agenda to address the need for changes in the membership classes to allow for a quorum for our meetings.

Grant Larsen made a motion that a class for members-at-large be added for those unable to participate as full members, due to lack of a RV, illness, etc. Only regular members would be allowed to vote. The motion was seconded and passed.

After this motion was passed, their was then a quorum, so we could then conduct business at this meeting.

Minutes: Minutes for the August meeting were corrected per Linda Larson. A point of order was requested by Dorothy Ratzlaff regarding the lack of a host for the October Outing. Chairperson pro-tem ruled that the coordinator, Joanie Kline was out of order. The bylaws state that the “coordinator was to ensure a host for each outing”. There are to be no “no-host” outings. Minutes were then approved and filed as corrected.
