Participation Incentive.
A participation incentive was approved to encourage and reward participation in club events.  Anytime a member and their significant other attends a club function their name will recorded and entered into a grandprize drawing at the end of the year.  This is a fun event and provides an opportunity to reward someone who makes CDT participation a priority!    Last year 3 members were awarded a free 2012 membership and $20.
 Secretary Position Open! 
No candidates surfaced in the recent election for the secretary position.  Chuck and Julie Horter will continue to perform the functions until a member surfaces with the expressed interest to take over the position. Anyone interested in taking on this fun position should contact Val Wangler.
Meeting Minutes
August 8th, 2012
CDT MEETING MINUTES                                 DRAFT
August 10, 2012
Dean’s Steakhouse, Mandan, ND
7:10 PM
19 People representing 10 memberships present.
President Val Wangler called the meeting to order and asked for approval of last month’s minutes. Al Braun made a motion to approve the minutes and it was seconded by Mike Neigum. Motion carried.
Bruce McCollom gave the Treasurer’s report. Beginning balance for the month was $5075.53 with an ending balance of $5075.74. Twenty one cents in interest was received in July and no expenses were paid.
President Wangler asked for a motion to approve the Treasurer’s report. Mike Gunsch moved for approval and the motion was seconded by Gary Stefanovsky. Motion carried.
Old Business:
President Wangler thanked Al & Jean Braun for the great July 14 picnic. He also reported that the Black Hills trip was a success. It was a consensus of those present that Chuck Horter should reserve the Deadwood Social Club for next year. Valarie Howard passed out copies of her pictures from the dinner to those present at the meeting.
The club picnic, scheduled for September 9 at Jaycee Park (Dinner @ 5 PM), was discussed. Several volunteers are needed to help set up at 4:30 PM. It was decided that the Wood House will again provide the main food, which will be Chicken, Pork Sandwiches, Potato Salad and Baked Beans (plastic ware included) at a cost to the club of $8 per person for an estimated 50 people. Mike & Vickie Gunsch will pick up the food (saving the club $3 per person).  Participants should bring a dish to share, their own beverage and lawn chairs.
Mary Scott & Gary Stefanovsky gave the report of the charitable giving subcommittee. It was recommended that a $500 donation be made to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. While the contribution will be made thru the United Way, they assure us that 100% of it will go to benefit the library. It was also recommended that a $500 donation be made to the ND National Guard Foundation with the check to be presented at the Kupper Military Appreciation Day. Bruce McCollom suggested that any club members wishing to make an individual donation do it jointly with CDT.  A motion to approve the report and make the donations was made by Gary Stefanovsky and seconded by Mary Neigum. Motion carried.
New Business:
Picnic at LaLonde’s tomorrow.
President Wangler asked Irene McCollom if she would chair the Christmas Party decorations subcommittee again.  Irene said she would unless someone else wanted to take over this year, several people indicated they would help Irene as they have in the past. Irene asked for a budget of $350 for decorations. Mary Neigum made a motion to approve a $350 decoration budget for the Christmas Party and it was seconded By JoAnn Wangler. Motion carried
I (Bruce McCollom) said that I am going to go ahead and have Jamie Wetsch make the following changes to the web site (these must be made in HTML): Delete pictures from the slide show of persons who are no longer members, replace the current “membership application” with the new one prepared by Mike Gunsch, and change the links to the forum. There will be a cost associated with this.
It was noted by Mike Neigum that Northwest Tire donated items for our Christmas Party silent auction. Mike plans to show for Northwest’s car show at Noon through 3 PM this Sunday August 12 and hopes some other CDT members can also bring their Corvettes.
President Val Wangler announced that Shelly Krebsbachs’s mother had passed away recently, our sympathy to Shelly and family. He also stated that his sister had passed away recently, our sympathy to Val and family.
I (Bruce McCollom) noted that it is my understanding that the club sends flowers or other appropriate memorial on the death of a member. This is a tradition of the club, but is not written or assigned to any specific officer. It was the consensus that this tradition should continue. Other ideas discussed were get well cards to hospitalized members and sympathy cards to members upon the death of a relative. The difficulty with these ideas is finding out about what happened in time and the logistics of getting the card sent, which would result in some being missed and even duplication.
Meeting adjourned at 7:52 PM.
Respectfully submitted, Bruce McCollom

More Really Bad Puns but still funny
Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal?
He wanted to transcend dental medication.

A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories.  After about an hour the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.  “But why?” one asked as they moved off.  “Because,” he said, “I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”

A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption.  One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named “Ahmal.”  The other goes to a family in Spain and they name him “Juan.”  Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother.  Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes that she also had a picture of Ahmal.  Her husband responds, “They’re twins!  If you’ve seen Juan, you’ve seen Ahmal!”
