 Minutes for September 24th meeting

The meeting was held at the home (barn) of Terry Plaggman on September 24. This is always such a delightful venue with a very cordial host.
Meeting was called to order by Wally Darling, VP at 6:45 p.m. By a lot of flattery, the old officers were returned to office.
There was some discussion about awarding a scholarship or ships, to a student attending the Chemeketa Vitaculture Center using some of the proceeds of our wine competition. Most members were in favor so there will be more discussion at the next meeting.
There was a feeling that the judges needed more time to get through the wines that were presented so it was suggested that perhaps we hold it for two days next year.
Ivan stated tha this grapes were about a month out. Everyone will have a late harvest this year due to weather conditions and a late spring.
It appears the Christmas party is still on and will take place at Eola Vineyards.
There will be no meeting in October. The November meeting will be at Judy and Bob's. Directions to follow closer to meeting time.
Meeting adjourned at 6:25 p.m.
Thank you again, Terry.
Respectfully Submitted,
Roberta Martin, Secretary
