*Looking into gathering DONATIONS from local/nearby Breweries: Crafthouse/Joseph James. Zia Records have offered gift cards and the LVJBS to provide a 6 mo. Membership.
*(Dan R.): Discussion of the Sound System Proposal: We now pay $60/mo. for our Sound System’s storage. Dan proposed to the group that He would ‘buy’ the System from the LVJBS, store it in his personal storage area, and have it available for any of the LVJBS’s needs. Officers had discussion of the details: Dan’s $1 purchase includes storage & Maintenance. LVJBS to utilize, as needed, yet must be used by a ‘certified’ Sound System Engineer, if used without Dan. If Dan chooses to ‘divest’ himself of the system, the LVJBS has the right of ‘first buy back’ for $1. Discussion of a generated inventory list sent to the Officers and a discussion of situations/what-ifs (moving out of state/death/divorce) were had.
