  • Uniforms
    • The uniform representative spoke with Mr. Woods and Marcia Phillippe on 05-Oct-2017.  The estimated cost for uniforms is as follows:
      • Total cost:  $210.00
        • Jacket:  $81.98
        • Gauntlet:  $40.08
        • Hat:  $62.94
        • Plume:  $25.00
          • Bibbers: $100.00 with NG emblem; $50.00 without emblem
          • Tough tote for hats:  $525.00


    • The original uniform cost was $246.85, so the $210.00 amount reflects a decrease.
    • The goal is to purchase 70 uniforms
    • The uniforms should be ready within 3 months of the order
    • The grand total for 70 uniforms at this price, including tough totes for hats and other items is $24,518.00
    • Discussion was held on purchasing uniform without the hat and just getting new plumes for the existing hats.
    • Decision was made to move forward with purchasing jackets, gauntlets, and plumes now and to raise money to later purchase new bibbers, hats, and tough totes, which should bring the total amount needed closer to $20,000.

    • Cheesecakes will go on sale for two weeks starting 06-Oct-2017.  
    • Christmas Concert Dinner and Silent Auction
