    When planning the meetings I try to take everything into account. But it seems that we just can’t seem to get a strong turn out consistently.
    January gets tied to the new year holiday,
    March gets tied to Rodeo,
    July gets tied to Independence Day
    September gets tied to Labor Day
    November is open weekend of hunting season
    So...... I have set up a poll to see what the thought process might be. One option keep it as it is, second option is go to the even months. The only true conflict I see there would be memorial weekend possibly. Or go to an every month meeting like they have at NTB
    Not sure if every month would be better or worse
    So please vote.
    If you have another suggestion I am open to add that to the polL

    The North Texas guys seem to have good success with every month.

    I have not been to any meetings in a while. I seem to always be working on the Saturdays that the meetings are held. But I look forward to getting my Scout back on the road in a month or so and attend some meetings.

    Don't know when the other guys have their meetings but does it have to be the first weekend of the month? Maybe the 2nd weekend?

    Regarding GBC Meetings …
    Planning a weekend meeting when all GBC members are available will be nearly impossible.
    Let’s plan for a scheduled 1st, 2nd or 3rd weekend of the month. Is a Saturday the better day?
    Schedule a monthly meeting to begin and discuss if an every other month is better suited for all.
    The meetings can be held at various locations around the city – we could consider an occasional meeting to be held at one of the area car shows
    Personally, I would like to have a meeting place (or places) where we can have a quiet area for a
    sit down meeting.
    I’ve added my nickels worth …. Anyone else?

    Does not have to be on the first weekend of the month. But that is what was voted on a while back
