    • Received offer fo booth from LOC, do we accept?
    • Consensus is that we should have a booth, board and community members should share booth duty
    • Need a champion to coordinate volunteers and booth planning/setup, not a simple task
    • Suggestion that jmckenna can coordinate remotely, but ideally should tee up with someone local to help out.
