GBM&K Meeting: 
  As you read the Minutes of the Last Meeting, you will see that there were 5 members nominated for the Executive Board..  There were more than 5 but there were some declining the nomination.  Since then, another nominee also has declined the nomination. There are still open nominations to be addressed at the Annual meeting on November 9th.  So, if you want to be nominated or want to nominate someone, that will be your opportunity to complete the nominations and a vote will be taken that evening.  We are fortunate to have a lot of good candidates perhaps YOU..  

     Did someone volunteer to do a Tech Talk before the Club Meeting in November?   Please reply to this email if you are or know of someone that indicated they would do this.. thanks  .. I would like to advertise it. …
