Grady also reported that only 3 people had shown up for the September meeting and no official actions were taken. The group present voted to move our regular monthly meetings to the first Tuesday night of each month at 7 PM. John Clanton volunteered to see if we could use the Corpus Christi Yacht Club. Grady will get back with everyone via email with the results of that inquiry and to confirm the location of the November 2003 meeting.
