Member Notice of Meetings

The WIGTP directors have been busy getting ready for the banquet, planning next year's expenses, and getting some meetings scheduled for this winter. Even though our tractors are getting ready for a long winter's nap, we as members have some work to do over the winter season to get ready for next year's pulling season. As many of you know, our 2013 rules were changed and not voted on by members or approved by the majority of directors. So we have our 2012 rules and the changed 2013 rules. I think all of us need to wade through the changes and decide which is correct. Class additions and Class changes are all to be discussed and voted upon.

I (Jeff Isom, president) would like a total of 5 meetings this winter. The first 2 meetings would be to figure out the existing rules as well as class additions and changes. The next meeting would be voting on the rules changes. (Get the rules done so tractors can be built). The 4th and 5th meetings would be to address director's responsibilities and duties as a WIGTP director.

Jason Knickman, Treasurer has contacted Dairy Sweet in Dunlap, Dairy Sweet has opened a new location in Dunlap and the original location on Main Street is not used and empty. Dairy Sweet is letting (Us) WIGTP use their closed location to hold our meetings "free of charge". Dairy Sweet did ask us to patronage the new location for added business. Maybe we could have a gathering before the meeting at Dairy Sweet to say Hello to all of our pulling buddies. The location is heated and has bathrooms, we need to clean up after our selves. If you would want refreshments during the meeting, Jason is ok with bringing your own. It's free, it's in a pulling location, Please give a little business to the new Dairy Sweet.

Financial Meeting
The WIGTP directors had a meeting on October 16th 2014 to discuss financial business, getting ready for the banquet, trophy expenses, door prizes, and next year's financial expenses. As always I (Jeff Isom) really try to be open an honest. I want every meeting to have adequate member notice so any member can attend the meeting if they want, but my wife Shawn and I were on vacation, and I didn't have enough time to get members notice out in time. Sorry, It was a rush thing to get banquet, trophy's, and door prizes taken care of.

The WIGTP Agenda 10-16-2014.pdf link described what we discussed.

Thanks All…
