    Milt Stevens:  Found three groups for grants that the club which could be used for the club.  The most promising was the National Endowment for the Humanities, but even though it's the best one so far, getting the grant is still problematical because of what we need to do and there are other groups who would compete for the money, so we are still looking.  
    Last Agenda Item:  We had some concerns about the progress of Loscon 36.  Karl opened the floor, then Joyce Sperling said that there were artists who had concerns about the way the art show was being done.  Christian McGuire said this was not a topic for the LASFS Board of Directors, whose only responsibility is the fiscal removal of the chair of Loscon.  The topic brought up can be brought to the attention of the Loscon chair.  The Chairman said that the Loscon will deal with the problem that Joyce brought up.  
    Arlene said that we appear to be ending the meeting soon so people should go out to eat and then come back for the photo shoot.  
    No take-aways.
