2011Events Calendar: Embellishers Academia—Muireann is working with School (Scappoose) to get a contract and firm date (has had the verbal ok from the School Principal). Carith has agreed to be our Canton Liason and will work with Muireann (as Academia coordinator). Date we would like

Demo for 2012—On hold—Will address in Nov Meeting DM step up event (Boars Head Hunt and Feast) Sept 24– Making largesse for them since they have supported us so strongly through the years (and even gave us some starter funds too)
3M Events: Honor Feast (Oct 1) and Yule Feast (Dec 3) both in Milwaukie Community Center (same site as Yule last year)
OLD BUSINESS: Last meeting minutes—ok’dRecommendation Letters should be going in….!!!!
1. May crown bid fell through for 2012—Also July Coronation bid is missing too—Any chance we can put together a bit on either of those events? –Feedback: No where we know of will work for May Crown (too wet still in May)Columbia County Fairgrounds has some bad news—they are honoring existing contracts but they are deep in debt and may not be open next year. So they are not accepting new events at this time. Will check into Asburry Park (next to Fairgrounds) which is owned by the County. It might be big enough to host a July Coronation (?12 acres)Trojan-Good rate but SoK had 550 though the door and that is about half of a typical Coronation. Too small for that size event? Could not host a full Coronation (1000 typical attendance )Camp Wilkerson—too small and no parking.Other options—????
2. Largesse Ideas for DM step up: Plan one: Dayshade idea –Midwesttent.com no longer has the black and white tarps…NO GOplan two: DragonWing idea: Can’t commit enough manpower to that project based on Cantonese schedules…NO GO for Canton—Possible for 3M?plan three: Rent the Oddfellows hall in Milwaukie for 2 Sundays before the step up and make up as much largesse for the incoming B&B of Dragon’s Mist as we can (bags, cards, books, balls, hoods, step-up court kit, etc). This will cost 70$. Ok’d by canton. Sept 11 & Sept 18. Notes will be put out on the list for this to see if we can get several folks to help out including 3M folks).Other thoughts????
3. Schools—going back mid September—let’s try and get some History teacher contacts!
Meeting End: 8:15 pm
