              General discussion and agreement :  Bascom’s charges $75.00

              for plated dinners with two drink tickets.  Most sponsors have a

              limit on what they can spend.  Board members agreed that

              Bascom’s was an great place to have our meetings.  Centrally

              located, well known, great food and service and we have always

              been treated fairly. We decided to continue to have our meeting

              there even if we need to supplement the cost from PCVMA funds.    

              We also discussed having unsponsored meetings with local

              speakers and using membership dues/PCVMA funds to pay.
