NEWSLETTER: We have been talking about sending a yearly newsletter mailing to current POC members as well as alumni. We would like to talk about some of the events that took place this year. Everyone is welcome to submit a possible article. From these, we will determine what will be published in the newsletter. I know we'll probably want a piece recounting POCtober Fest, Spring Break, lock-ins, call-out trips, and any other great trips. Randy mentioned that he would like to help write something about the origin of the club and how it has prospered. If anyone else would like to help w/ this, please contact me. 

GRAND PRIX WEEKEND: We have an opportunity to be awarded a grant if we come up with a sober event for Grand Prix weekend. Let Dave know about any good ideas. Ex. John mentioned last night that we could possibly do a ropes course or use the one in Hort park
