Central Arizona Chapter
July Minutes


The July meeting was held at the Can't Stop Smokin' BBQ in Chandler. Present at the meeting were Andy and Debbie O'Brien, Bob Rebsamen, Kent Taylor, Tim and Karen Johnson.

There was good talk, cheer, and great food.

This meeting was brought to order by Bob. The minutes of the May meeting were read by Tim. We discussed the new ETE governance guidelines. It appears to require a bank account with a Federal EIN number in order for donors to claim a deduction on their Federal taxes. There may also be a requirement to register with the state of Arizona's corporation commission. Tim will write to the CoCal Chapter and ask how they dealt with these new requirements.

Rail Fair and Modules
Earlier, John Leipsic had volunteered to finish the scenery for the currently bare corner module. Thanks to John for agreeing to that effort.

We decided to bring the modules to the September meeting to see how they fit, and decide on any improvements that should be made before Rail Fair in October.


The next meeting will be held on September 8th at the home of Andy and Debbie O'Brien at 10:30 AM. The meal will be pot luck.

Respectfully submitted,
Tim Johnson, Secretary
