Reviews: All were positive. Brett-Grey addition was well received. High School performers were well liked.

Ideas: Find a way to confirm receipt of payment. Get schedules ready earlier and this would allow promotion of the festival earlier. Also add the Brett-Grey Ranch to increase promotion. Maybe add Raptor program to Friday night. Pursue the art addition to the Festival. Create master list of promotions by email, articles, and brochures. Should we have a Publicity chair. Should we have an educational rate.

Next Regular Meeting: May 22nd. Adjourned 9:02 pm
