*Sunday, 6/28, will NOT be a sales day but a booth set-up day.

There are 85 scheduled "slots"; so each slot is worth 1.1765% of the net to the Post and Auxiliary.


Lee and Jillian Beausoleil volunteered to ensure adequate amounts of water and ice for 6/29-30.

Gayle Cavell will cover 7/1-7/4. The Post & Auxiliary reimburse for the water and ice.

Volunteer 1 is the “Shift Manager.” Outside of saying hi to the Fire Inspector, the primary duty is to see that all workers have signed the fire regulations sheet which is posted in the booth and knowing where the sheet is.

Pick up is to pickup product at the beginning of the work day (before the booth opens) from TNT at the Las Vegas Raceway. Product will be in our locked trailer. 1 or 2 people with a vehicle and trailer hitch. First shift of the day with the pick up crew will unpack what is needed from the trailer.

Drop off is to drop off unsold product at the end of the work day (after the booth closes) from TNT at the Las Vegas Raceway. Product will be in our locked trailer. 1 or 2 people with a vehicle and trailer hitch. Last shift of the day along with the drop off crew is to pack the trailer.

Bank is to deposit money at the bank and pick up change as needed for each shift.

Post Annual Dues go to $45 1 July

12093

As approved during the March meeting and reported here, Annual Dues for this Post will go to $45.00 per annum beginning July 1, 2015. This amount matches the annual dues charged by National for Members-at-Large and the first payment of an Installment life Membership. From Annual Dues, $31.50 is remitted to National. Out of this $31.50:

In addition to this we are charged:

Therefore out of the Annual Dues the Post charges, $32.20 (Continuing Members) or $33.20 (New Members) go to National, Department and District.

The increase to $45.00 increases the Post's share of the annual dues from $2.80 (Continuing Members) and $1.80 (New Members) to $12.80 and $11.80 respectively.

We suggest considering Life Membership.
