The call-out meeting was a successful one. Giltner said, “We had over 100 attend this year, and it was great.” Simpson said that during the meeting, members reviewed what Tech Hounds was about and the expectations for the season. “We’re mostly trying to train new members so they know what to do when the season comes around again.”
