  1. New Business
  1. Novice teams that are split evenly into two (2) teams when one (1) team slotted at a higher "B" level in a tournament get blown away and the other team being slotted at "C" win handily - can anything be done - to pass a written message on to ORA
  2. Promotion of the RAT team - proposal for the executive and co-ordinators to purchase new RAT jackets. Motion - to the region membership for the subsidy for new jackets - Jeanette/Mr Forest - Discussion - promotion money available - about 12 jackets, approximately $75, maybe a better way for promotion - not quite the same jackets as the team of which $175 per jacket. Executive would pay $50 and the region the rest. Call the question. Motion defeated.
  3. Volunteer Recognition due by next meeting
