Fencing Equipment:
$800 was allotted to buy new loaner fencing gear.  Arnold may now be able to
get some of this equipment at cheaper prices and has asked if he can buy a
few more items as long as he comes within budget.  Some concern was had over
quality vs. quantity, but it will be items such as bags and gorgets where
financial corners can be cut, not on swords and masks.

New Business:

Event Proposal: Cynnabar's Fiber Faire
Halima brought before the group a proposal for a fiber arts event to be
sponsored by the group.  It would be held in Chelsea sometime either in late
September or early October.  We would be able to get the site free!  There
would be classes and demonstrations of the fiber arts and possibly a bean
count A&S display.

Informational Signs:
The Chatelaine has proposed the group buy two plastic informational signs
which can be set up at practices, demos, meetings, etc and hold flyers and
other needed information.
His Grace Dag has said that he might be able to find wholesale prices -
the original proposed cost was 2 signs for $90.
More information on this to follow.
