Vice President’s Report (Future Outings):  
Fred B., V-President, passed out a copy of the partial list of club outings that are
currently scheduled for 2020.  He proposed that we not schedule a monthly outing
in March since Southwest Regional is scheduled for April 5/9/2020.  Consensus
was to leave March unscheduled as proposed.

Discussion:

•       There was discussion regarding the fact that some of the outings were.        
      scheduled for mid-week instead of the regular week-ends.  There was
      some concern that this might exclude any new members that are not
      yet retired.   

•       Sue C. suggested that some Clubs schedule outings that are just prior
      to a State Meeting – either on the way down to/or near to the event. She
      felt that this might instill better Club “connection” or participation.  
      Consensus was not to do that currently.

•       Scott K. mentioned that using the Southwest Regional as one of our  
      scheduled outings would provide better support for that event and
      provide our members with a more global view of the Cal-Wit Club.

•       Fred B. mentioned the possibility of scheduling a future joint outing
      with the Golden Bear Winnies – no date scheduled yet-- probably not
      during this coming March 2020.

•       Mary J. suggested investigating Cassini Ranch for a future outing
      in the summer/fall months.  She thinks that they might have a covered
      area for club meals and events.  Fred B. will check it out to see if
      it might work.

•       Fred B. mentioned that several of our club members attend the
      Blythe Bluegrass Festival in January and then go on to attend the State WIT
      Meeting in Hemet.

Next Outing Wagon Master’s Report:
The next outing is June 20-23 at French Camp in Manteca.  The Kenyons &
Mullens are the co-hosts.  Scott K. explained that the French Camp RV Park is
now a gated community with key-card entry, sites are pull-thru, has good facilities,
but, NO Wi-Fi.  Outing activities may be a tour of the Chocolate Factory and a
sewing project activity.  Carol K. asked that those that wish to participate bring
their sewing machines.  Some materials will be provided.  (Look for upcoming
information flyer for further information.)

Old Business:  Fred B. mentioned an article that he read on Facebook about
heart attacks & water.  If anyone wants more information, contact Fred.

New Business:  There was no new business.

Sunshine:  A card was passed around for members to sign for the Macaluso
Family.
