2)  Election of Officers President and Vice President Vacant no one volunteered, Secretary – Helen has agreed to continue with conditions, Treasurer – Tom, Events, Web Page – Rick, Correspondence, registrations, and emails – Teri.
In light of the vacant positions, Roger Bourgeois is proposing the meeting in Dec be held as usual, he and Marc to chair, there will be no meetings in Jan and Feb and meeting to be held in March if someone steps up to take President and/or Vice President, if not then someone to coordinate and take on organizing Speed Sport in April.  Try one more time to sell remaining calendars at Christmas Party and if someone wants one mailed to add $5.00 to the $20.00 charge.  At the December meeting divide and send the calendar money to our charities and other money raised from Christmas party.  Please submit all bills for payment at this meeting. Decide money to be spent on other charities, as in the past.  Have motion to pay dues to CCCC, Maritime Sports Hall of Fame and NAACCC when bills received.
Helen's condition to have meetings scheduled for holiday Mondays to be changed to another date reviewed.  Motion by Roger Bourgeois and seconded by Teri that the holiday meeting be changed to Tuesday of that week, will be reflected in minutes and date sent prior to meeting, highlighted to avoid calls to Angie or Roger on when the meeting is, all in favor, motion carried.
Regardless there will be no meetings in Jan or Feb.
Note our club has 150 cars registered that is potentially 300 people that could step up to take on the position of President and Vice President, Roger Bourgeois and Marc Melanson are still going to be around to help with guidance and answer questions.  People have busy work lives and get burnt out from being called on year after year.  For the success of this club please reconsider your decisions to not volunteer for executive positions.
Meeting adjourned by Rick.
