Motion to accept constitution as is: Bob
Second:Lynn
Discussion:
-Opposition to proposal: in the proposal, there is nothing mentioned about who creates the budget; no mention of insurance in proposal as is stated in current constitution, has a problem with process of becoming a regular member, eliminated a few directors, such as Color Guard- where will members buy club stuff?, has a problem with accepting a flawed document, not sure about members making motions and voting, and putting the patch on any vest; we should speak with one voice and it has served us for38 years
-insurance issue is important
-committee does not want to throw the baby out with the bathwater and wants to get the proposed constitution approved and then will address the insurance issue and the budget through the new process; thereis a provision for getting rid of people
-how did committee deem it necessary to change the vest?
-putting patch on any item is ludacris

Vote: in favor =15 Opposed = 4 New Constitution accepted.
