23 Members attended Steppers meeting notes 2-14-21 Zoom meeting
Our meeting opened with a discussion that lead to planning an additional open meeting for the interested public. We have had more people asking to attend, and have a plan to film a question and answer ZOOM video to put on our web page.
Discussion continued with chats about New Mexico hunting trips. Hopefully traveling will be available in the near future.
Many members had information and input to a idea to plan a trip to NH, perhaps as a group overnight trip. A little more research will be done.
Rick joined us in person from Beth Israel Hospital from his private room. It’s been quite a month for hospital and doctor visits.
The increase in silver prices has had us reconsider our award system. We might have to make adjustments if the price goes to high. Thanks to our Treasurer who has made some wise purchases for us to keep our club ready to give rewards for the club.
A long discussion of Minelab and other machines lead us to decide to take better care of all our equipment. A few solutions to problems were shared.
