    What’s this all about? “W1AST BOD T-shirts Dark, Black or Navy Blue. Order Name badges”. BOD T-shirts? Does that mean just the BOD? I think the minutes should reflect specifically what actions and votes were taken by the Board of Directors, especially those involving expenditures. de N1FJ

    1. GE Frandy,

      Multi part answer.

      As usual there are items available for the members to buy. I/we thought that it would be easier for the members to find a member of the BOD if they had a different shirt than the rest.

      Since our other name badge person has retired, we needed a new one.

      All personal items that the BOD members purchase come out of their own pockets.

      Your President
