members present: Francie, Rod.C, Roy, Kathleen, Tracey
1) Casino night
Official date March 21. Tickets are currently available through Rod.M. They
are numbered and he is keeping track of how many are sold etc.
$1196.84 has been put down as a deposit on food, casino supplies, and
university club rental date. Everything seems to be under control, from
Question, do or should we rent stools for around the gaming tables?
Discussion- we want people to mingle and get around, so maybe stools would
encourage just sitting at one table. Francie suggested that the table are a
comfortable height to lean on if needed. let's leave it for now or maybe
order half the number expected. Finally decided to leave it for now. We can
rent them closer to the date if it seems necessary.
Helen and someone?? are coordinating grande prizes and silent auction
Tracey is looking for dealers
Rod is doing tickets
Kathleen is doing everything else!
Some further discussion on how or if we could get tax receipts for donations
to the club. Answer is unknown, Francie will look into how we can apply and
if we can even qualify.
set a date- finally May 10th is settled on (11th is Mothers day..)
what needs to be done- we need to ask for houses. Decide if the bus idea
is good. Discussion- bus will cost approximately $400, the cost seems to be
too much. Bike form house to house or walk or roller blade seems better if
we can plan a good accessible route based on the houses that are offered
(hopefully close enough together). Maybe we could include assiniboine park
or peanut park for appetizers somehow? Further discussion about this will
occur in March meeting.
3) Water quality (change room cleanliness)
Water has still been murky in past two weeks. It was very bad one day,
couldn’t even see the wall from 2 meters away. No one really knows why. The
pool deck and the water fountain are dirty too. the fountain doesn't seem
to have been cleaned, there are dried fluids in it, and algae, etc. Ann and
Tracey have both mentioned this to guards on duty. Nothing has been done.
The change rooms are also really bad. There is dried mud on the some of
the benches in the female change room and the floors in the showers in both
the male and female change rooms are gritty and have bits of paper and dirt
and fuzz on them, mildew in the showers as well. Francie will e-mail some
of these concern to Amanda and perhaps Walt Mckee as Amanda is not in charge
of the change rooms.
meeting ending at 8:29
