The meeting of the CATT was called to order at 10:10 AM.
Roll Call: Roll call question: What are you doing for fair this year?;
Zach: Bringing animals, educational presentation, rocketry, and Altoids tin projects
Alex: No idea
Ethan: Bouquets of flowers and redneck repairs
Marissa and David are now part of the State Tech Team
Treasurers: $400.10. Approved by Alex, seconded Marissa.
No business meeting last time, no secretary report.
T-Shirts: Custom apparel from www.4-hmall.org. minimum of 12 per order. Not too bad for pricing. Should we get them? Ethan thinks we should get a white shirt and then Tie-dye it. Motion to approve by David seconded by Ethan. Design #TS41. Approved order of 12 of them.
Marissa motioned that the CATT fund Tie-dye kits for the shirts. The motion was approved.
Neal Smith project update by David. Haven’t accomplished much yet.
Discussion for June Meeting. Throw a pizza party! Hopefully we will not get the Tie-Dye mixed with the pepperoni. David suggested Casey’s pizza. Ethan motioned that the CATT would consume copious quantities of Casey’s Pizza, which was seconded by Kyle (club expense).
A survey was taken at the end of the meeting for suggestions for the next year.
For CATT members interested in taking a project to the Story County Fair, see http://sc-fair.com. Mary is coming at 2:30 to discuss specifics of the fair and what changes are being made. State fair opportunities are possible through the county fair. Robotics and video competitions.
The CATT watched the 4-H Film Festival video for the Iowa State Fair. Participants make a film and the winner of best film receives an Apple iPad.
If you’ve just finished 8th grade you can sign up for the state conference. You don’t have to be in 4-H to go, so ask your friends.
At this point we all realized that we hadn’t done the pledges so we did them now. The next meeting of the CATT will take place on June 11. There will be no business meeting, just an achievement show, Tie-dye-ing of the new shirts for those who want to, and pizza party.
At 1:53 Ethan motioned to adjourn the meeting, with a second from Kyle. The motion was passed and the meeting was adjourned at 1:53 PM.
Mary came to talk at 2:30 about the new policies in the fair. Some fairly major changes have been made to help you work out where your project belongs.
