2020 EVENTS
Need to plan Sherman Park dates
Need to plan Menke events
Need to plan PAC events
Jeff, Alan, and Robert will coordinate scheduling, and clubs should promote each other’s events

OBSERVATORY RELOCATION
Equipment list is prepared
Only 1 proposal from 3 requested for how to set up buildings.
Need to put documentation together and get pricing
Mike O: Suggest build dome first, use it to support the club by offering a door prize of using it for next year’s EISP, and show that progress is being made. Might be able to break ground in 2020.
