MINUTES FROM THE MEETING OF THE MIDLAND WALKABOUT CLUB,
SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 2014

Those present for the Bush Walk were Merle R., Carol S., Cristal F., Ike and Cathey G., Susan and Kenneth F., Dorise W., Gary and Carolyn P., Alex R., and Criss K.

The walk began at Windlands Park at 8:30 a.m.    It was a crisp morning but we bundled up and as we progressed the sun played its part and we got warmer.    Everyone who started finished so CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!!!

A special thank you to Susan and Kenneth F., who drove here from Hobbs, New Mexico, just to walk our walk.    We are so blessed to have you interested in our club.

We gathered at the Harvest Café after the walk for eats and coffee.    Carolyn, our wonderful new president, conducted the meeting.    Merle, Criss and Cristal were not able to make the meeting and we missed them.

Carolyn reminded us that the next walk would be at the Midland Park Mall , Saturday Feb. 8th.    Meeting time is at 8:00 a.m. at the Food Court.    Watch for an email to remind you of the starting time.

Another walk will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22 at UTPB in Odessa.   Again a reminder will be sent as to the meeting place and time.

We discussed the Texas Volkssport Association request that we hold a meeting in August, specifically August 2.   We voted to do this.   We will either walk the Bush Walk or if we are really ambitious we will sanction a walk at the I-20 Wildlife Preserve.    Carol S., and Cathey G., offered to help on this project.    More details to come.   It appears that we need a place to hold a TVA meeting after the walk, 1:00pm, providing snacks and water for our visitors.   We will explore our options.    Those staying over on Saturday night might also want to plan a dinner together.   We may have as many as 60 people attend.

Cathey and Ike also said they would be glad to redo the glass case bulletin board at Windlands Park.    Cathey likes to do these things.

Meeting was adjourned.
2014 is going to be wonderful.
