    President’s Report (Greg): “Oh…is it 7:30 yet—just turned.”

    2019 Elected Offices:

    The Nominations of the 2019 Officers were made.  The only Office needing a vote is MAYOR.  The two nominees are:  Eric Frommhold and Jennifer Minucci.

    (Online votes will be taken through 12/11 and the chosen 2019 Officers will be announced on 12/15 to be ready for the January 2019 meeting.)

     

    Our 2018 Holiday Party will be on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14th at The HideAway (3369 Thom Blvd.)  Doors will be at 7pm, with a show time around 8:30-9pm.  The venue’s ‘curfew’ is 12:30am.  FLUX will provide the entertainment.  There will be NO opener.  Food and drinks are available for purchase. There will be a 50/50 Raffle with half the monies going to a selected winner and the other portion going towards a local school’s music program:  Duane D. Keller MS.


    GOAL for 2019:  We want to start having 1 show/per month, since there seem to be less ‘jamband’ type shows at the Brooklyn Bowl.  We took 2018 ‘slow’ die to the Brooklyn Bowl’s addition to our scene. (*Brought up concern was to find a venue with the needed size—not too big, not too small.  The venue thoughts:  Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel, The HideAway, and the E-String.
