We had a wide ranging discussion on how to resume in-person meetings.  A show of hands indicated must everyone present has had at least one covid vaccine shot.

Items discussed:

  • What is the official capacity of the Woodcraft meeting room?
  • WE want everyone in the club to be safe.  Most of our club members are older and "high-risk".
  • Possible outdoor meeting behind Woodcraft.  This is a parking area and is usually empty.  Chairs needed.  Check with Woodcraft to see their opinion.
  • Limited in-person attendance to maintain physical distancing and  use Zoom to broadcast to those attending remotely.
  •  Vaccination required for in-person attendance?
  •  Concerns about in-person meetings were expressed because of the older members of our club, some with health issues.

 Show and Tell from April and May Meetings.  The links below will open a new window.
