Minutes of Annual Unit 228 Meeting Saturday 8 November 2014 Columbus Centre
Francis Gaudino called the meeting to order at 9:10a; 30+ attended the delicious breakfast; this was a Breakfast meeting because of a lack of available facilities. Dick Courtis was invited to represent the Courtis family but was unable to attend. (8-1/2 tables played - 17 tables in 2013).
A Moment of Silence was held for the Members we lost in 2014:
Francis read last year’s Annual Meeting Minutes:
accepted by Carol Anderson, seconded by Chris Moss, passed.
Marj Elliot gave the Treasurer’s Report, copies were available on the tables; there was a substantial loss at the Sectional, mostly due to Hospitality. Report accepted by Marj, seconded by Roland, passed. Judi was asked if Harvey Loewen would review our books, with thanks for past audits.
Financial Position: Balance sheet as of 30 Sept 2014 - $12243 unaudited
Sleeping Giant Sectional—Many thanks to Marilyn & her team for tourney hospitality and organization. We lost $1300. Next Sectional to be 1-3 May 2015, Francis to book the space, prob Oliver Road Rec. Discussion about hospitality (maybe a pot luck or members bring something)
Discussion to have the Annual Meeting back on a Sunday, possibly 2 sessions.
We are slated to have another Split Regional: either July 2016 with London OR
Oct/Nov with Niagara (last Split Regional was 17-22 Sept 2013)
The Unit will stop administration of the Travel Fund and give approx. $3000 to the Club; the Club will stop donations to the Unit
Tim McCormack is running a great Education program; suggestion to give some $$$ to his program
