COUNCIL OF COUNCILS MEETING:

 It was noted that the CofC 2008 meeting was a great success.  There were many good comments, including the comment that the band, “Crash Rocket”, was great.  Everyone chipped in.  Judith thanked all who showed their vans, and said it was neat to have the vans being shown for two days on the promenade.

 Cari noted that her business friends in Cocoa Beach thanked her profusely.  They enjoyed having the vanners and also having the vanners support their business. 

 Judith said that next years Council of Councils in Las Vegas should be excellent.  Make it a vacation.  There are many things to do in Vegas, as well as the surrounding area.  Many historic sites are within 15 – 20 miles of downtown.

 NEW BUSINESS:

 Cale noted that we lost Coastal’s event for this year.  They are definitely not going to put on an event.  He asked if the FVC wanted to put on an event this year.  He said he would stop at Ben’s Hitching Post outside Ocala and see who owns the place now.  They might be interested in having an event at their campground.  He also noted that the FVC could do something at Beverly Beach in June.  Maybe the FVC could host an event if mid-August or mid-September.

 Cari said we should try to get another canoe trip together.

 Cale said he would not run for FVC President next year.  His schedule will not permit it.

 VAN-IN UPDATES:

 Foreplay            May 2 – 4, 2008 at Beverly Beach Camptown. Magoo noted that they would have a band on Friday and Saturday nights.  This will be a 10th anniversary event.  Joe Madonia will be handling t-shirts for the event.  $50 pre-reg.  $55 at the gate.  Travel trailers and motor homes $30 extra.  Magoo noted that, if you tell the campground that you are with the vanners, extra days would be about $25 per day, NOT on the water.  On the water sites will run about $30 per day.

Broward            Linard noted that Broward is still trying to get something going in the Keys.

 Cari made a motion to adjourn and the meeting was concluded.
