Tabled discussions from last meeting
ECJ Fire Pit, do we want to get one with the club logo, where are we going to keep it and also is the club going to pay for it or are we going to take donations for the purchase of this item?
Also, there was a mid week at Shaggy's on Pensacola Beach, we had one new person join us for the night that we are hoping will join. Also, there has been a lot of interest in the club right now as there are people that are looking for a new club to join or that have just moved to the area and are looking to join.
New Business
These are some topics that have been brought up to me from various club member:
 Do we as a club want to do a club ride and BBQ or Picnic or if there are certain members that are wanting to get together are we going to do that on our own?
 July's Monthly Ride wanting to do a night ride, when is a good time for everyone and what day are we wanting to do this?
 July Mid-Week or Meet and Greet- When are we wanting to do this and where? Shaggy's was June.
 The registration for Jasper's Sherriff's JeepFest opened on June 16th there are 3 sets of jeeps that are already registered and have lodging at this time.
 Are we still wanting to have the club vote a certain club member out and return their membership fees or are we wanting to keep the member and see if they renew???
 A thank you letter was sent to John Morrel for their donations of the burgers and hotdogs that we received for the BBQ last week.
That is all I have at this time, I don't know if there is anything I am missing, or that you want to add.
