MIJC Meeting Minutes: December 2nd, 2017 at Avanti’s in Pekin, Illinois

Treasurer's Report

Starting: $1,648.63

Ending: $1,648.63

There were no expenses for the past month.

Old business

There was a trip to the Badlands November 11th. Small group, but all had a lot of fun.

New business

We had two new members at the meeting. A warm welcome to Jeff Petrowich and Ben Vogal.

Larry Wilson resigned his position of Vice-President to be eligible to for election as President.

A motion was passed to approve all of the nominated officers positions of Larry Wilson as President, Rose Bortolussi as Secretary, Jon Martin as Events Coordinator, and Larry Haas as Vice-President.

The Annual Dinner will be on Saturday, January 13th, 2018 at the American Legion in Pekin, Il (at 718 Court Street, Pekin, Il.) starting at 6pm. Current members in good standing, including those who have joined the prior day of the Annual Dinner, are welcome to attend the Annual Dinner. However, Club members must RSVP and pay the $5 per person Annual Dinner administration fee by 1/10/17 to attend and be eligible for door prizes. The Annual Dinner is a pot-luck style event where the Club will arrange for a main dish. Please bring a covered dish to share.

Jon and Jill Martin will be hosting a pre-Annual Dinner party at their home. The Martin pre-Annual Dinner party will start at 3pm.

A motion was passed for the Club to spend up to $1000 in door prizes. The intent is for the club will provide a door prize for every membership that attends the Annual Banquet unless the $1000 limit is reached first. The final cost of door prizes will be determined by the number of memberships that attend (if less than $1000).

A motion was passed for the Club to buy meet (roast pork), potatoes, as a side dish with enough for all, and whatever additional side dish Jill Martin determines appropriate (based on the number planning to attend) for the Annual Dinner. This year the club will be providing at least one side dish to ensure there is enough for all; in years past we have run out of food for those who eat last.

Club members may start paying 2018 dues. Each existing member has until January 31st 2018 to pay 2018 dues, and after that date a late fee of $10 will be applied to the dues per Bylaw Article 3, Section E, subsection 4.

Steve Vohs is tentatively planning to host a New Year's weekend (December 29th through January 1st) at Duke's Offroad Rach, weather permitting. Winter wheeling, food, and fun is the plan. Please watch the forum for information, and, most importantly, if this event will happen or not.

Next Meeting is the Annual Dinner on January 13th, 2018 at the American Legion in Pekin, Illinois at 6:00 pm.

Meeting Adjourned.
