On the agenda:

  • Honorary Members:  The Board will submit for approval a change in the description of Honorary Members in the By-Laws that will give Honorary Members the same rights as Resident members.
  • Reservation Policy changes:  The Board approved the following changes which will take place at the January meeting.:

Board meeting notes – November 3, 2010

Notes from the Board meeting of Wednesday, November 3, 2010.

  • Entryway is progressing.  Murph thinks he’ll come in real close to budget.
  • Reservation Policy changed:  The Board voted to change the Reservation Policy.  The main changes are an increase in the reservation free from $50 to $75.  The $50 cleanup deposit is still in effect.  Also the Board will allow you to reserve an unused date 45 days in advance instead of 30 days as it was in the past.  Also, to reserve a date you MUST pay your deposit and fee at the time of the reservation.  The updated reservation policy will be posted on this site soon and will be linked to from here.

  • Fireplace:  The Board voted unanimously to ban any fires in the fireplace.  The flue pipes are cracked and a fire could easily cause the place to burn down.  NO FIRES!  Besides that danger the smoke and heat could damage the TV.
