Welcome to our new friends Lyz and Jaycee's unnamed nephew.

Old Business:

Sam brings up the possibility of getting a table for OLA. It didn't go over that well!
Jack brings up the bi-weekly "thing" at Youth Services. Participants need background checks, and things will continue to develop. 

Jaycee is aiming for books to the new Claremore store next week. Also reminds people about Collector Con, and Shop Small Business activities. Yours truly will be the emcee for the panel during SSBD. There is also a possibility of a signing at 1907 on December 10th, and another signing at Mammoth on December 17th. Also planning for possible trips to Dallas Comic Con and St. Louis Comic Con in the spring.

Update on the group's contest. We'll probably wait until after the holidays to push it.

New Business:

Jack brings up that there are scholarships available now for the OWFI conference. They will likely go fast. The OWFI writing contest will not open until January 1st.

Adrean brings up the possibility of shifting the deadline for submissions to Friday evening. We'll start that right away, as we won't have a meeting next week.
