Sounds excellent. I will make sure to include all of these as agenda items 
for our first meeting. ( if and when the club gets going)

Thanks for the offer of help Tom. I will post as things happen and hope for 
input from experienced club organizers such as yourself.
On another, note, I left a message for you on mic modifications a week or so 
ago. I am wondering if you had any input on it. It had to do with the mods 
made by Kevin's harps on JT-30's to turn them into Crystal Balls Mics. Can 
you enlighten me as to the differences in these mics? Any idea what is done 
to them?
Thanks again
