Minutes XVII - December 31, 1993
The meeting was called to order at 12:48 a.m. WCST at the bunk site of the ailing Steve Donohue in the Clearwater Building at D-A Scout Ranch.Four members were in attendance at the onset of business:
Mark Bollman (16), Steve Donohue (17), John Howey (11) , Jeff Rand (17)
Three observers were also present: Dan Hammon (3), Jeremy Ikerd (3), Lou Pezet (7)
Mark Bollman displayed a brochure from the International Time Capsule Society. The registration of a Winter Camp time capsule with the ITCS may be an alternate method for maintaining a long term time capsule.
Discussion ensued regarding the current tradition of a time capsule ceremony. The sense of the members was that the ceremony should be held on the night of December 29 rather than the 30th. It should be a part of the standard Winter Camp schedule. Candles should be used to light the trail to the site.
Members were asked to consider ideas for the Winter Camp XX celebration only three years in the future. Suggestions should be shared at the next meeting of the Future Society.
Several ideas were discussed in evaluation of Winter Camp XVII and as suggestions for the future:
- Raise fee next year.
- Hard to get new members - need stronger chapter meetings.
- Keep Winter Camp Savings Time.
- Conduct team building experiences early in the weekette. Devise selection methods that do not hurt self esteem.
- Assign youth to meals without adult members involved.
- Purchase storage containers for Winter Camp equipment.
- Distribute activity descriptions to assigned individuals before camp.
Steve Donohue left the meeting at 1:57 a.m. for a brief escapade related to his illness. Members offered him best wishes for a solid result.
The meeting was adjourned at approximately 2:39 a.m.Respectfully Submitted,Jeff Rand, Secretary
