VICE PRESIDENTS REPORTS: All Veeps are requested to confirm committee chairs under their purview.
1ST VEEP Keith McArthur: October is our Pancake Breakfast fundraiser, and a committee needs to be formed. If interested there will be a meeting next Monday after the club meeting, as time allows.
2ND VEEP Ron Nevels: Progress
3RD VEEP Bob Sanchez: Warren McKenna reported on our Padre Night. The bad news is Friday and Saturday games are all sold out. An alternative would be to get a box with tickets costing $125 +/-. A minimum of 10 would be required. Warren will research the possibilities.
