S. Dillon reported rules book nearly complete and looked upon very favorably by North Shore contacts.  Noted operating staff of 15 or less requires only pre-employment certification while 16 or more requires random drug testing program in addition to certification.  Certification includes hearing, sight, drug, and alcohol tests currently totaling $120.00.  Mount Nittany Health approved to certify BHRR personnel.  Personal payment will be required.  Reimbursement from our treasury will follow upon successful completion of all tests and presentation of receipt.

Decision made to begin online ticket sales for autumn runs on August 1st.  Station sales undecided.

Worthy of noting is we found it difficult to recall our new domains so for posterity we now have the following:  www.bellefontetrain.org, www.bhrrtix.org, & www.bhrr.org.

Meeting adjourned @ 8:57PM.
