•   WELCOME MEMBERS AND GUESTS.


•   READING/ACCEPTANCE OF PRIOR MONTH’S MINUTES.

     -  Motion made by James Wood and seconded by Bob Satchefield to accept last month’s meeting minutes as published. Vote was unanimous.


•   OLD BUSINESS.

     -  Lucky Strike outing.  Steve Mattes reported that information from campsite included no reports of flooding. Some power outages but they were expected to be resolved over the weekend. Currently 11 have signed up for the dig. Participants will all chip in equally for dirt and equipment that will be purchased.
     -  Metal Detecting, Sun Splash Park Daytona. Scheduled for November 17th at 9:00 am. Low tide is at 9:30 am. Steve will bring a canopy and everyone can bring their own chairs. The address is as follows:          Sun Splash Park          611 S. Atlantic Ave.          Daytona Beach, FL 32118
     -  Christmas party menu Christmas party to be held at Warren Park Pavilion at 11:00. Officers will provide meats A sign-up sheet of menu items will be available at November meeting. There will be a gift exchange for those wishing to participate ($20.00 limit on gifts).
     -  Results from Ore. Les has not heard back from Ore. Steve will follow-up with him.
     -  Bob brought magnets and free stuff for give-away to members.

•   NEW BUSINESS.

     -  Richard plans
     -  Points commitment.  There is currently no common method for points to be assigned to various clubs. In discussions between Steve Mattes and Richard Robinson, Richard has created a GPAA points assignment form that members can use to insure their points are assigned to the Orlando chapter. This form is being slightly modified and will be e-mailed to all members. The chapter currently has 51,000 points.      -  Membership Kits. Steve Mattes is working with Richard so that the chapter can buy individual membership kit instead of the 5 kit minimum from GPAA. They would be in a plain box and club would pay for shipping cost, but it would be cheaper than the sales tax and gas cost to get them from Kellyco.
