IV.              OLD BUSINESS

         The home show in Josephine County was a good success.  Thanks to Don Taylor and Robert Rice, Tom Venzon, for getting the booth set-up and taken down, and thanks to everyone who participated.

         Roof framing class was a good success, very informative.  Many requested another one that were not able to attend, maybe we should think about holding one in the fall. We cut off at 80 people, 8 or 9 that wanted to attend were not able plus about 5 more calls that requested another class.  Maybe have another one and limit to 30-40.  Carl has had a lot of request for educational seminars from the contractors and others to provide cross support. 

         Rex from Klamath Falls called and wanted to know if we would entertain the idea of having a class in their area.  They were able to send 2 of their inspectors and they learned a lot.  Education committee & see if we can schedule something.  Keeping the cost down brought in more diversified contacts.
