JANUARY BOARD MEETING

Meeting at Ray Cavagnaro's house January 8 for the regular Obsidian Board Meeting were: Tom Taylor, Mike Stahl, Gene Ranard, Jim Stovall, Ray Sims, Kay Fahy, Anna Jeppesen, Karl Onthank, Mike McCloskey, Lorena Shinn, Donn Chase and Ray Cavagnaro.

Tom Taylor opened the meeting by stating that his family is in their new home at 3635 Donald. Lorena read the minutes in place of Gerry, whose mother is quite ill. Ray Cavagnaro gave the treasurer's report, and Anna gave a good report of the successful Christmas Party which was attended by 85. She announced the Jan. 16 POTLUCK at the Water Board Bldg., which will be a STYLE SHOW - a number of people will be called to help display the latest or most unusual clothes. The Board was asked to attend as well as all members.

Mike stated that no one had gotten lost or had to be rescued.

Kay reported two new junior members, Michael Fehly and Richard Stanfield, who were voted in as members.

Ray Sims reported as usual he and Bob were getting the paper together.

Donn Chase reported that he had asked Mac McWilliams and Lloyd Plaisted to assist with summer camp and that Jefferson Park was still leading in sites.

Jim Stovall presented the Club with Howell Williams' latest book, "Ancient Volcanoes of Oregon." The discussion led to the summer during the 1940's when Mr. Williams was here. Karl and Mike presented the Conservation discussion and the Board voted to have their committee back the Water Resources Board and also to send a letter to our Congressmen backing the Wilderness Bill which it is hoped will be passed in the present Congress.

Gene reported the schedule of the coming trips (see column on left).

Lorena reported that our advanced Scout troop needs a leader and both of the two Mikes - Stahl and McCloskey offered their help to renew the boys' Charter in February. Jim Jeppesen sent a note as he could not attend; the Board approved his committee of Jim Richardson, Bob Nicholson, Henry Carlson, Larry Hilt, Lorena Shinn and Ray Harris. It was also agreed that the climbing school "thinking" should be done real soon - as many sessions as possible - last year - two indoors - three out. Another question of Jim's - and the Board had a good idea - to schedule climbs only every two weeks - and maybe only five or six - then one the weeks between - if a group would like to climb one of the others - that would be fine - then too - if the "experts" wanted to go to another mountain on an off week - that too would be in order. Jim has a good committee but the Board is also willing to help when needed.

Ray Sims reported for Henry Carlson on the "lodge" committee - as favorable to the finances in running the lodge when built.
