Open house! We had another open house. However, with the weather,
there were likely those interested in a program who were not interested
in driving through freezing rain.
There were suggestions to get to the schools closer to the Church, and
schedule another open house in two weeks or so. The other side of the
coin is the persistant recruiting and open house would cut in a tad too
much into the technical modules. We'll try for another one. We're going
for a less formal approach. This next one would happen after a few
lessons into our core technical course. Being close to this year's
goal of 25 students, though, we're going for it. Ho-Sheng Hsiao has
talked with Neil Coplin, Mark Hamilton, Aaron Croyle, and Nathan Oyler.
There is two stages: setting up a presentation time, and the actual
presentation at the school. The names listed above are OSU students
The concept is that the students have the best opportunity to reach
the high school teachers during the day. However, anyone
is more than welcomed to help.
Also, there is a need for our next camping trip for November 19th. We
now have access to a booklet with food ideas, and Mr. Corder and Mark
Hamilton for experience. There's going to be a sample menu passed on
the Reflector for comment. Final decision will be at the
this Thursday, Kingsdale Caribou Coffee at 18:00. We will also
detail out the recruiting effort.
I handed $215.00 to Mr. Corder. There's $10.00 but not available as cash
a non-functional ATM card). That will arrive at the next meeting, perhaps
to get some munchies.
On the table
Mentioned is the pattern of recruitment we are falling
into. We do recruiting in spurts and chunks, planning for
a open house three weeks in advance, and doing multiples
One proposal is to set a date when to start planning.
Since our pattern is mostly in the fall, and sometime
spring, we may as well have a year-round eye towards
membership. Rather than scrambling to get things together,
we extend the planning and execution time.
There were concerns about overbuying the food. However,
the pattern is roughly similar to any planning of camp.
At least no one starved. The first time usually is a gross
over-estimate. Despite that, we had half the youth membership
attend. The next time around will be much closer.
The Crew wants a GPS. Mr. Corder has a specific model in
mind. Ultimately, we'll make a GPS course during summer
