Daryn K. Teri Mc. present board members. 

Jeff absent, sent apologies.

16 members present.

Daryn opened the meeting with the treasurers report,  $225. has been added to the club account due to new memberships.

The need for the website was discussed, do we really need it can we not just use google group and facebook? 

Daryn pointed out that a lot of people use the website to pay their dues.

Alice moved that we ask Jeff to resign, Daryn said that it would have to be voted on,  we also needed to vote on the By law changes, 

12 out of 16 voted to defeat the by laws, and 13 out of 16 voted a vote of "no confidence" in Jeff. and it was proposed that we ask for his resignation .

Daryn then read the By law concerning termination.

Alice asked  that the minutes be posted on google group as well as the website, as that way  people who do not use the website , could get the minutes. I agreed that I could do the minutes on both  the website and in googlegroup.

it was proposed that we need to vote on leadership at the next meeting, as we need to move forward, the  common concensus was that  there is too much politics and drama  going on and we need  to get back to beekeeping.


Al introduced  a panel  consisting of 

Craig Dunning, Steve Olsen, Craig Genereux and Chris Church.

the topic was "swarms", which was quite interesting.

we had a new member introduce himself to the group, Lee Maiden. 

Walter said he had been in touch with Karen at Chelan co fair, and that she was going to get back to him with the booklet for the fair, & that Steve Foley has agreed to do the Honey extraction demo this year.

Peter Hill & Steve Olsen have said that they will do a talk after the Queen rearing class next month.

Al is asking for input for next months education, if anyone has any ideas please contact Al.
