Minutes of August 9, 2023

KBC Board Meeting

The meeting was called to order at 11:10 am before the bridge game at the club house.  In attendance were Pat Pearlman, Scott Church, Lou Brentano, Dan and Marlene Sabo, Penny Kallaus and Jean Zoeller (by phone).  

Minutes from the May 3 meeting were reviewed and approved.


Treasurer:  Scott gave out a KBC operating statement showing that thru July we had a little over $6,ooo in our general fund and we now have $15,000 in a CD.  He just paid $600 to the school for rent.  There was some discussion about whether we needed our P.O. Box since Scott gets the bank statements online.

Club Manager:  Jean is having trouble getting people to use the sign up option to say they will be playing in certain games.  People respond to her emails but do not go to the sign up site.  It would be helpful to know if we have enough people for the game and how many tables to set up, etc. if people would sign up.

General discussion:  Pat and Dan will talk to the school to find out the status of our snack room.  Looks like they still plan to use it for a teacher’s office.  If so, we would like to get something in return.  It was proposed that we should get them to sign an agreement to possibly extend our lease.  We also agreed to buy new shade screens for the front of the building and we would like the school to agree to install them.  

We agreed to reimburse Louise W. for expense she incurred for the upgraded drop box she had started for the club several years ago.  She has now canceled the unnecessary upgraded version and we have now started using the basic free drop box.  

We need to nominate new officers.  Pat no longer wants to be President.  She will be sending out a general email asking for suggestions and people willing to be part of the KBC board of officers.  Instead of having a vice Pres., we thought about having a co-president.  It was suggested to Pat that she could be less pressured if she delegated a lot of what she considers her responsibilities.  We also need someone to help with hospitality, restocking snacks, etc.  (Robin?) 

Education:  Pat A. would like us to list her social bridge game on our web site.  We decided that would not be appropriate.

Date for annual meeting will be September 27th.

Marlene will officiate our meeting in September.

Meeting Adjourned at 12:15 and we enjoyed lunch from Killer Taco.
