    Any chance of streaming video or audio using "ustream" to not have to worry about the "long distance telephone call"? It's Free, just takes someone with a laptop and webcam and it don't use anything from arkgeocaching.org hosting or site. Just post a link here to when the video will start!

    Just out of curiosity, where is the agenda for Friday's meeting? The agenda used to be posted ahead of time. It should continue to be, so the general membership will know what will be discussed at the meeting, to help in their decision to attend or call in.

    Also, where can I find a copy of the Standing Rules? I thought they used to be under the Documents section, but they are not there. They should be available for viewing by the general membership.

    Here is a link to the agenda for Friday's Board meeting.

    I will check on getting the Standing Rules on the site. I thought they were here but I cannot seem to find them either.

    Richard, I tried the link you provided but it denied me access. Do you have it shared so that anyone can see it? It may be restricted to just the Board members right now.

    Richard,
    Wasn't there a request from the fundraising committee about purchasing more t-shirts and caribeeners?
