Minutes 04.04.13

There was a motion to skip the reading of the minutes from last month.  It passed.

Old business: Harry was presented with his three legged buffalo award from January. 

Member cards were handed out to members who were present. Instead of issuing a member number, we decided to indicate the year each member joined.

Mike is still looking into finding stock for advertising fliers. He will look into Avery stock.

New business: Bryan Jones reminded us that there will be a coin show next Saturday at the Wingate in Round Rock. Entry is free with your Capital City Coin Club membership card!
