forces to do a rally.  After further discussion, a motion was made by Pat Robison, seconded by Jim
Sparke that we are not willing to do a rally for various reasons.  Motion passed.

that would represent their area. A big basket will be provided for items.  Also, if anyone wishes to
donate a basket by themselves it is also appreciated.

collect our rally fees which are between $7.00 and $10.00/per person as determined by the Hosts,
and collected upon arrival at the rally. Joe Nash seconded this motion.  Motion passed. Any
remaining money that was not spent for the rally, is to be deposited into our treasury.

coach in 2018.  A motion was made by Jolly Ann Whitener and seconded by Jim Sparke not to raise
our dues.  Motion passed.

     October Rally: Shirley Blair presented an invitation for October 13-15, 2017 at Harbor Cove
RV Resort in Coldwater, MI.  MOB has invited MAB for a fun rally to close out our camping
season.  This will be a “Chili Cook-off rally”.  Contact Shirley Blair for registration forms.
