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.
