16 March 2013 Cleveland Ufology Project Meeting Summary
Aaron called the meeting to order with the gavel the club had saved from the days of old, last used by Earl J. Neff.
The first thing to be settled was whether to stay with Tri-C for our meetings or not. If yes, Tri-C has now required us to become insured as a group, in case of any accidents caused to or by any members or attendees. The insurance cost is very high but Tom talked with his personal agent at State Farm and was given a quote for C.U.P. as a “civic group” which was more reasonable. The insurance coverage is required by Tri-C before we would be allowed to meet there again.
George suggested we could meet at a Denny’s restaurant with no attached costs or requirements except that all attendees purchase something to eat during the meeting.
It was decided by a show of hands, to go ahead and purchase the “civic group” coverage and continue meeting at Tri-C until an alternative place can be found and agreed upon.
Dave told about his sighting of a crescent shaped formation of orbs at 5:30 a.m. the previous Saturday, which he viewed through a device called a monocular. He posted the information on Facebook on the C.U.P. group page.
Dale Harder brought a star projector and some discs of the full night sky which he aimed at the ceiling of the room. There was too much ambient light and the ceiling was not a flat solid surface, but had an assortment of rectangular panels which distorted the images. The visual was interesting, but the circumstances prevented good clear views. Dave aimed his monocular at the images and was able to detect some movement not visible to the rest of us. A second disc was a view of Saturn from its moon, Titan.
Dale also spoke briefly about his own missing time and abduction experience. He continues to be hopeful about his future direction with the Camelot Project and working with resonance crafts.
