Members present: Francie, Rod M, Tracey, Roy S, Rod C
- A) Up coming Kenora Meet- 15 February, Mickey is taking care of entries
- B) Issues with pool water cleanliness- it has been fairly clean and clear since christmas break and people have been happy with it
- C) Saturday mornings- In the past few months before christmas there has been a few incidents in that the front doors of the building have not been open till 8:00 am the time the club is to be in the water swimming. Openings so far since christmas have been 15min or 7:45ish open so that club members can get in and change. Tracey’s husband works behind the desk and she has asked about this, he said that the doors are supposed to be opened 10-15min before 8am so that we can be in the pool on time. If this is not happening it is because the staff member opening the building is running behind.
- D) Social- the whole concept of the social is to offset the expenses the club has incurred. Should we try it before we need it. We currently have a GIC so at the moment we don’t need it.
- we are at the same place financially as we were last year. There are approximately 11 people who need to pay this term for their installment payment. Everyone else paid for the year. The installment money will help.
- Will we have to take from the GIC before nest year?
- Not sure we’ll have to wait and see.
- Big question - How much money could we make from a social????
- Kathleen has sent her a report with suggestions and recommendations for the casino night, possible break down of helping to organize. She believes the best location is the University club here on campus they seem to have the best prices for h’ors d’oeurves etc. Casino equipment rental would be about $350. We could estimate an approximate $1500 profit.
- concern that we will not lose money. Can we look at it form a break even point?
- we want to invite the other Masters clubs in Winnipeg, the silent auction and auction are not our drawing points. We just want a fun night out. Group discussion ticket price of approximately $25 with a cash bar. Roy believes it will cost approximately $15 a person to break even.
- Approximately 75 people to break even after that it is profit.
- Other clubs may want to attend and have us share information about how successful it was etc.
- April 11 2003 would be the best date for the club to have this. We need to decide that we are doing this so we can book things.
- Motion to try the casino night social with a minimalist view (don’t go big if we can’t)
- All in favor - Executive present in favor
Next meeting February 13
