Secretary’s report-
Tiffany Sears reports that she has looked further into the way a Pokemon tournament functioned and how one could be used to bring attention and funds to Chamber. Tiffany briefly describes the process of documenting Pokemon before and after the Tournament and how the winner would be the one with the most progress and would receive some sort of prize. Phil asks about the number and placement of the Pokestops and Gyms. Tiffany will prepare a local map showing these locations. Phil presents the idea of a sort of scavenger hunt situation in which players would complete a tour of the down ending at the Visitor’s Center. Upon completing the challenge they could receive a Kettle Falls pin. He also asks whether or not additional Pokestops can be registered. Tiffany will continue to look into this.

In the future, Phil would like to charge an additional 20-50% for events. Dave Blanck states that temporary aluminum stages cost about $8000, and that $5000 should be a fair price for use of the Crossroad’s Stage.
