April Meeting of the USS Narragansett

The meeting was called to order at 1515 at the EWG JSHS Library with Fleet Captain Knotts presiding.

He brought us up to speed on the happenings in SFI R15. The Regional Coordinator has resigned effective June 1st and nominations are open. So far the captain is aware of 3 people who have announced their candidacy, himself included. He is hopeful that the Region will consider our success and listen to his platform rather than the RC election becoming a popularity contest.

S3C is continuing to work on improving communication and reporting as well as developing their Academy.

Lieutenant Bender announced a contest to name the USS Narragansett newsletter. Please provide your entries within the next two weeks. There will be a prize for the successful entry.

Commander Taylor explained that there is a New Members Guide to the USS Narragansett and an associated Questionnaire and Exam on our website. All members are requested to complete the exam before the next meeting.

Captain Anzaldi told us about a new simulation tool he would like us to investigate. He will post a link later today.

A general discussion was had around upcoming events. Our next meeting will be held at the Fleet Captain’s quarters on May 26th, where we will complete the assembly of the Delta Shields and then have an away mission to recruit at the Gaspee Days Arts and Crafts festival.

We are also planning an away mission to the Air Show on June 9th.

Lieutenant Dreyfuss mentioned that the Foxwoods ComiCONN is June 30-July 1st. Altered Reality is looking for volunteers, and the Narragansett will also have a table at the show that will need to be staffed as well.

Chief Chapasko is also looking into the possibility of an away mission to do laser tag to prepare for upcoming missions.
