  1. Agreed to invite more members to the Encyclopedia group. Present people we want to invite to the TBE board. Perhaps we could be pragmatic and invite people from borzoi clubs and people that in other ways can be of help. We bear in mind that we don’t want to create any trouble by inviting people known to be difficult.
  2. We decided that we call for the next meeting when we have answers to some of our points!
