Dona then circulated the microphone.

PP Risto Poskiparta
PP Risto announced that the preparations for the golf tournament in November have begun, and that PP Bruce has begun drafting letters regarding sponsorship. He noted that the hotels are not doing as well this year, which may impact their contributions.

Wes introduced his guest, Russell Potter, who is a management consultant. His company is Motivo Management Consulting.

PP Martin Smyth
PP Martin mentioned that, in talking with Russell, he found they had grown up within five miles of each other in the U.K. (though not contemporaneously) and remarked what a small world it is (cue music…).

Rtn Ari suggested that our projects be mentioned in the weekly bulletin. Her project is HIV/Aids.

PP Karl-Heinz Schmelzer
PP Karl announced that today, en route to the meeting, he, Dona, and Risto had driven through Sawangan, where we had had a project. They saw the truck that had been purchased with our funding but learned that it is not currently operable. In addition, the area was not as cleaned up as had been hoped.

President Dona
