The club has a 1/8 page ad in the Fur Rondy Guide (Anchorage Daily News) and an official listing as a Fur Rondy event for both weekends. Table fees will be $45/table to cover both weekends. These moneys are being used to pay for the 1/8 page ad. Members wishing o get tables were asked to put in their reservations as we have a limited number of tables and display cases available.

Final announcement of Election of Officers was given by President Carl. Formal Election of Officers for this year to be held at our club's March 4th membership meeting. Elections will be held for the positions of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and two Board member positions. Per our club by-laws, the 3rd Board member position is held by the past club president.

Carl (our current president) cannot run for this year as the club by-laws require the President cannot serve three consecutive years, So.... a new club president will need to be elected this year. Interested members can submit their names for any of these positions right up to the day of the election (on March 4th).

No new business.

Presentation was given by Glen Dean on the subject of "Hobo Nickels".
