Ginny Boom gave an explanation of the Traveling Stool. The traveling stool has been in existence since the Florida Rally 2002. Scott and Gail Malinosky are now the proud owners of the stool. Pertaining to the stool,
there were a few suggestions. Scott would like to burn it. Kathy Hanson thought on a cold fall evening it might make good kindling, too. Dallas Leierís thoughts were not to lose it. Scott read the list of rules to the group as well as to who previously has had the stool. Gary Babcock contributed with a camping story about the stool being cloned by a fellow camper. Kathy expressed the stool to be a fun tradition.
A nominating Committee was formed for the 2008 Wagon Master. Committee consists of: Zig Carlson, Dave Hemmer, and Ginny Boom.
Ralph Hunstad showed a picture of a beautiful blanket that Ada made for the International Rally Raffle. Tickets will sell for 6 for $5.00.

Money from the blanket goes towards the International Rally fund.
