Janice brought up the possibility of the club getting insurance for the trailer in light of what happened to another club a week ago. Some totes were stolen including the Wilson system. It was suggested that we might be able to get insurance through our bank. MaryBeth is going to reach out to NAR to see if they have a suggestion or if they sell insurance to clubs. We should do inventory of cost of items to replace just in case. John D is going to send some information also. Tom M said we might be covered by the National War Plane Museum Insurance also.
Feb. 6-7 MARS is doing outreach at the Strong Museum of Play from 11am-2pm
