Show Hits and Misses-
Help is needed
for tear down after the show. It was
also suggested that we purchase another sump pump to empty the tanks more
There was a
discussion of hiring- either cash or community service credit - for students to
help with tear down.
A discussion was
also held on the show location with concerns for amenities, draperies, tear
down help, drainage and tank storage.
After concerns from Poway on current tank storage (from the street level
it appeared the tanks were stored on San Diego Pond & Garden’s roof, not
the driveway behind the building). Greg Ruth had some suggestions on stacking
the tanks to protect them. Plans are to meet with Pond & Garden within the
next few weeks to discuss possibilities.
Will Vukmanic has expressed an interest in heading up the
nomination committee for elections in June.
He is looking for nominations/volunteers for elected positions.
There is no date for the 2023 show yet. We do not have a
show chair. Consideration will be given
to the date of the San Diego Spring Home & Garden Expo with our show to be
on the Fairgrounds at the same time.
No change yet in the Non Profit Status. Jill Rhoades will be checking on it.
Meeting was adjourned at 8:30 PM
