Spring Warm Up – It was a great success and enjoyed by all.  Thanks were extended to Kevin again for his 

    excellence and thoroughness.  Discussion was held around the format of next years spring warm up.

    Honda is considering renting the Markham fairgrounds or using its new Honda plant location for next  

    years Toronto spring warm up.  Honda is also considering paying for instructors so we can properly

    host a  spring warm and open it up to our sister chapters.  Kevin has been asked to contact our sister

    chapters and see who are qualified instructors.  Once date is set we can approach them well in   

    advance  and see if they would be interested in assisting us with  this event next year.

   

            Election of Co director: A Motion was put forth by Bill to elect Kevin as co director of Chapter T.     
            Discussion was held around the need for a co director as many chapter CD’s are aided by their spouse in this capacity.    
            A vote was held. The motion was carried unanimously.
