Cleveland Ufology Project – Meeting Minutes 21 January 2012
New beginnings in this New Year included the new meeting place. From the plain academic environment at Tri-C of former years, this night we tip-toed stocking-footed into a Yoga studio with so many decorative distractions, I didn’t even notice the C.U. P. banner.
Richard Lee, Treasurer, manned the table at the door of the meeting room to take up new or renewed memberships and updating individual contact information forms.
Tom Wertman set up his laptop and audio visual aids and reviewed the work on the new look of the C.U.P. website that he and Aaron diligently combined efforts to update, refine and reorganize. If you have not yet visited the website, please take a little time to do so and let Tom and Aaron know what you think about it.
Aaron pointed out that July 8, 2012 will be World Disclosure Day, spearheaded by Stephen Bassett. C.U.P. can participate from here by
having our own Disclosure Event. It would be at a library on July 7th (since in the summer libraries are not open on Sundays) – which one will be announced when there is an available space at a specific library.
During his talks at various libraries in 2011, Tom found that there were people who came up to him to tell about their own sighting experiences, which they had previously never shared with anyone. Aaron’s idea is that C.U.P. members can man tables at a library for an open forum where people coming by could either tell us their stories, or to fill out a report form, or at the very least, we could encourage each person to tell someone. This will be our own mini Disclosure Day – since it is unlikely that the Government, of its own accord, will be coming forth with Disclosure about involvement with and/or knowledge of extraterrestrial visitations and activities.
There is a deck accessible from the new meeting room where we hope to do some sky watching this summer. There is not a time by which we must vacate the premises so we should be able to enjoy viewing without time constraints.
At the April meeting there will be a discussion of the book Aliens of the Forest by Noe Torres and Ruben Uriarte, available at Amazon Books for $10.76. Please read the book and join in on the review.
