|Minutes of the 2016 Camporee were summarized by Debbie Bertrand.|
A motion for acceptance was made, seconded and approved by large majority.
|The treasurer, Bill Molson, reported that the Camporee remains on sound financial footing.|
Members should expect an small increase in fees for 2018, and expressed that we need to have registered
at least fifty units ( 50 ) to have that rate, and the use of the hall. This year's income
gives us a small cushion to cover expenses.
|Adele reported that we had 50 units on site, with three more who had registered,|
but were unable to attend.
We also did have dance visitors on both days, but total not yet determined.
| The executive committee has arranged that we use |
