New Business:

Charity Poker Run—The 2013 Poker Run will be held the last Saturday of January.  Bo asked for a volunteer to go visit all of the stops.  Danny and Cody agreed to assist with this. M/S Reenie/Roshal to have Special Olympics Brookings be our charity and their group would be able to assist and hold fundraisers (such as the raffle board).   Motion passed.  Also, Special Olympics Brookings would help with registration and the drawing of cards so club members could ride.  Craig mentioned that Lemkes offered to host a breakfast.  Danny offered to visit Lemkes numerous times to make sure the offer was still good.  McLane said he asked during the off season.  Club members will be needed to assist with spreading the word.  M/S Scott/Reenie For the first place prize to be $500, second place to be $150, and third place to be $50.   There was discussion to increase our 2nd/3rd prizes to $250, $100, however, the original motion was not amended.   Motioned passed.  Discussion occurred about a charity poker run and having money for the charity.  M/S Roshal/Carol to have $250 minimum go to the charity and than anything above the expenses go to the charity as well.   Motion passed.
