  • Mark says the First Crawl Festival in Oak Island, NC was extremely windy and could have used help holding the table down! But he said it was a good festival and it went well.
  • There are still a small amount of people that have not finished their transactions for the Benefit Auction.
  • Mark wants to join forces with other carnivorous plant based groups to enter a float in a festival/parade next year! It would be interesting and awesome to see this happen.
  • Now that the deadline for finishing up all Benefit Auction items (which is May 13th - exactly a month from the last day of the auction), the group talked about the funds raised and the beneficiary of the funds.

Meeting ended at approximately 9:45 PM
