Minutes

 

The regular Board of Governor’s meeting of the Unit 101 ACBL bridge club was called to order by president Rod Smith on May 6, 2021 at 4:40 p.m. at the bridge center. In attendance were president Rod Smith, vice president Connie White, secretary Joan Hunter, board members (1 year term): Nora Burgess, Diane Davis, Joanne Howell, Joan Hunter; (2 year term): Mary Giles, Jeanne Lins, and Teresa Russell. Zola Harper and Al Hunter were not able to attend. Also in attendance was director Rick Giles.

 

The financial report was presented by Rod Smith. The motion was made by Connie White to accept the report, 2nd by Mary Giles. Motion passed.

 

Old business: Minutes were read from our last meeting on October 22, 2020. The motion was made by Connie White to accept the report, 2nd by Teresa Russell. Motion passed.

 

Rod reported that the Oasis rental was cancelled for the tournament per recommendations of last board meeting. He also explained the relationship between ACBL and local clubs and tournaments.

 

The board discussed current issues with Covid. It was decided that it will no longer be necessary to continue taking temperatures and having the sign-up sheet, but the club will continue to observe city, state, and applicable requirements regarding all Covid protocols.

 

There was discussion about kibitzing and that it is not always comfortable for all players. David Giles will be asked to put out a statement that each table has the right to say no. Mary Giles will discuss this with the club manager. Discussions of hands should not be done between games and the directors will be asked to remind the club of these protocols.

 

End of year business meeting/election of officers/Christmas party.  Discussion of party and ideas.  Box lunch, suggested, or bring your own. Waiting to see what regulations are at that time. December 5, 2021will be the date of the party. Eating, then meeting, then bridge. Joanne volunteered to be in charge of organizing this.

 

All board members should recommend to Rod their choice of nominee for the Jim McKinney outstanding volunteer trophy.  At the next board meeting we will vote on the recipient.

 

The chairperson for recruiting nominations for new board members will be appointed by the president. Following the by-laws this should be done by August.

The next board meeting will be Thursday, August 5, following the game.

Motion made by Nora Burgess to adjourn. 2nd by Joanne Howell.

Meeting adjourned.
