Elected club officers are:
Discussed how often to meet - agreed to meet monthly on the first Tue of each month (though the next meeting is on a Monday - sorry). Would probably skip the summer months when noone is digging.
Everyone was excited about organizing a Raleigh Bottle Show. Tentative date is Saturday April 21, 2001. Linda Lynch agreed to check into what it will cost to rent the Graham or Holshouser Building at the State Fairgrounds. This was the location of the last show (about 20 years ago). General plans are to charge for admission ($2) and early buying ($25). Plan to sell 100 8 foot dealer tables at $25 each. Would be a one day show with dealer setup and early buying 6-9am, then open to public 9am-3pm. Still need someone to step forward as Show Chairman.
We agreed to have a presentation at each meeting. Jack Murdock volunteered to go first at the August meeting with items from his personal collection. Jack Freeman agreed to present "Wilson Bottles" at the subsequent meeting. Looking for people to sign-up to present at future meetings.
Meeting finished with Show & Tell and a swap meet. Lots of nice bottles were shown and offerred for sale/trade. Pem Woodlief showed a unique fruit jar with ribbed sides in ice blue color with a leaded Hemingray lid.
