HOW OFTEN SHOULD THE WSFA JOURNAL APEAR?

DISCLAVE '96 PROGRAM AS OF May 14, 1996 (Reality may interfere)

<Directions removed by Web Policy>
I have produced a the WSFA JOURNAL for each meeting since I took over in February of 1995. The idea was to provide the minutes and any useful news to the membership at each meeting.
A few members have supplied articles, reviews and news items, but very few. Some members have suggested I cut back to one issue per month. I'd welcome input. Who actually reads it, wants it, etc.
In the past TWJ has been a newsbulletin, as well as a major fanzine. For a while it was a great, thick publication with a circulation all over the world. Art work by Vaughan Bode, Tim Kirk, Jack Gaughan; fiction by Thomas Burnett Swann, LoCs from Harlan Ellison, Gene Wolfe, Robert Bloch, etc and generous contribution by our own club members, made it a highly respected magazine. The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Science Fiction has a picture of a WSFA JOURNAL cover (by Alexis Gilliland) and mentions it with praise.
Should we try again to make it something worth sending out to fandom on subscription I exchange / or "the usual" ? Might we do an annual or semi-annual public issue? Is anyone interested? Please tell me what you think.
Attending: Pres. Covert Beach, Sec. & 98 Chair Joe Mayhew, Treas. & 96 Chair Bob MacIntosh, Trust. Jim Edwards-Hewitt, Trust. David Grimm, Trust.

Shaner, Steven Smith, William Squire, Lee Strong, Michael J. Taylor, Michael J. Walsh, Michael Watkins, Miles Weissman.
President Beach called the meeting to order at 9:20. The annual election of club officers was on the agenda after the regular meeting. John Pomeranz had announced, at the previous meeting that their slate of candidates for trustees would be announced one at at time, one for each slot.
Bob MacIntosh reported the WSFA treasury stood at $5918.42.
DISCLAVE 1996: Chair Bob MacIntosh announced that he would meet with available committee members after the election meeting. Another Hotel walk-through and meeting was scheduled for Wednesday May 6th at 5:30, it would be open to any one who cared to attend.
TRUSTEES: The constitutionally required slate for Club officers were announced as follows: For President John Pomeranz, for Vice President Elspeth Burgess, For Secretary Joe Mayhew, For Treasurer Bob MacIntosh, For first Trustee: Candy Gresham, For second Trustee Terilee Edwards-Hewitt, For third Trustee Jim Edwards-Hewitt.
OLD BUSINESS: Eric Jablow volunteered his new home as an alternate meeting site for our 3rd Friday meetings whenever the Ginter's house is not available. He also offered to host a 5th Friday meeting on May 31st. Both offers were accepted: Directions are published separately in the WSFA JOURNAL.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:49, followed by a reading of the roll of eligible voters and the election meeting.
Trustees John Pomeranz and Jim Edwards-Hewitt were standing for office and decided to recuse themselves from the entire election rather than for just for the ballots electing the office for which they were running.
Dan Burgess and Mike Watkins were chosen as substitutes. The following officers were elected unopposed and by acclaim:
President: John Pomeranz
Vice President: Elspeth Burgess
Secretary: Joe Mayhew
Treasurer: Bob MacIntosh.
By error in proces the Treasurer was proposed and elected before the Secretary.
The first Trustee ballot was between Trustees' candidate Candy Myers and Michael Nelson, nominated from the floor.
Michael Nelson won.
The second Trustee ballot was between Trustees' candidate Jim Edwards-Hewitt and Candy Gresham, nominated from the floor. The division was even; a second ballot was called. An additional candidate, George Shaner, was nominated from the floor.
Jim Edwards-Hewitt won.
The third Trustee ballot was between Trustee's Candidate Terilee Edwards Hewitt and Candy Gresham, nominated from the floor.
Candy Gresham won.
The new Trustees, Candy Gresham and Michael Nelson, will take take up their office at the first WSFA business meeting on June 7th, 1996. The 5 re-elected officers will carry on. WSFA thanks our outgoing trustees David Grimm and Terilee Edwards-Hewitt for their service.
Lee Strong handed in the following Announcements:
1] John Ellis' film TWILIGHT OF THE DOGS is moving to public release world wide. It has been sold for home video release in Korea and Malaya.
2] Two thumbs down for the film BARBED WIRE.
3] Lee Strong conned a Federal agency into adopting DISCLAVE as a Federal standard of excellence.
4] Lee Strong is re-engineering the Department of Defense Personal Property Program. For years, Congress has refused to allow a meaningful change to the program. As a result, the taxpayers pay 1.2 billion dollars, lose 37 million a year and get substandard service. This year Congress will not only allow changes needed to save 100 million per year, but will formally condemn the industry providing the substandard service. This change to international policy is based, in part, on a report written by Lee Strong.]
L.A.con III marks the fiftieth anniversary of the first Los Angeles area Worldcon, Pacificon I in 1946, and the committee has been authorized by the World Science Fiction Society to honor this anniversary by retrospectively giving out the Hugos that would have been presented at Pacificon I if they'd been invented. (The first Hugos were presented in 1953.) The awards will be presented at a ceremony on Friday, August 30, 1996.

Joe Mayhew is asking for input from club members on the question of whether to continue serving Beer in the Disclave consuite. He expects to hear a rousing support from beer-drinkers but there are serious problems to take into consideration.
Serving beer not only opens WSFA and its officers to grave risk liabilities (serving beer to minors, being the source of alchohol to DWI and other infractors, etc. but it also makes Hotel negotiations more difficult as it puts us in competition with their bar. Despite planning and vows of good intention, we have had a shortage of bar-tenders, problems with beer being served to the already intoxicated (by the intoxicated or the intimidated), minors being
handed beer by irresponsible "adults." and such. If we are back at the Hyatt Regency next year and can get a third year contract, the aspect of Hotel negotiations may be less, but the good luck of no law suits may not hold out forever.
WSFA is the last major convention on the East Coast to serve beer. Most have given up, not out of a dislike for beer or cheapness, but from fear of prosecution and difficulties with hotels.
Joe is particularly interested in hearing from people who work on Disclave.
