Pre-Planning Minutes
Winter Camp XXIV - 2000

I. Welcome and Introductions
Several minutes were spent on introductions, although Alex Leach was the only newcomer. Also in attendance were: John Rahrig, Steve Clark, Zach Polifroni, Brian Lenz, Mike Quirouette, Robert Hartwig, Steve Clark, Sean Gray, Mark Bollman, Steve Donohue, John Howey, Dave Milon, and Lou Pezet. Adam Pezet arrived just about at the end and John Weipert was there but did not parcipate.
II. Youth and Adult Leadership
It was decided that we would have several leaders for camp this year:
Mike Quirouette will be the Youth Leader
Alex Leach will take responsibility for Activies
Steve Clark will be Treasurer
No one volunteered for Head Cook although we hope to fill the position. Mark Bollman will advise the treasurer, Steve Donohue remains the primary adviser and volunteers are sought for Activities and Kitchen responsibilities.
III. Fees and attendance
After some discussion of last year's results and surplus, combined with an evaluation of our current plan (renting three cabins) it was decided to leave the fee at $32.32 for youth and $36.36 for adults.
It was further decided that December 22 would be the last day to pay with no exceptions.
We additionally decided that we would open Winter Camp to those outside Mahican chapter only on an exception basis. Exceptions were immediately made for Jeff Rand, Roger Horn, and Gordon Draper. Others could be considered
