Also, Lynn B. will provide input so that Amy and Kathy will be able to do an overview of the monthly financial split between Deland and New Smyrna Beach from the online games.
Lynn Berg continues to direct the 299 virtual Club games on Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday mornings. Open games are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays Saturdays and Sundays. She is giving lessons for online play on a going forward basis. The Open Games on Friday afternoon and Saturday are not showing good participation. Lynn suggested a 0-100 on Thursday morning and a 0-500 on Saturday afternoon. Florida has introduced a 0-100 evert week day at 7:00 pm which is producing great turnouts and thus income for the Club. Sharon Lessard is directing some of the games and also teaching two classes.
For Membership, Lynn B. reported that we have two new members.
Under supplies, Joan L. discussed the results for a Thermometer for the Club. It was generally agreed that it would be purchased closer to the time of reopening.
For Facilities, the gentleman who does the lawn has indicated that trimming of trees and brush from around the Club is needed. The committee will obtain estimates for Review by the Board.
Sunshine had nothing to report.
The impact on the budget of the cancellation of games versus the Virtual club Games was discussed. Note that the income from the online games currently is allowing us to break even.
The Club will now proceed with the re-carpeting of the Clubhouse while it is not in use. A committee comprised of Lynn M., Lynn S. and Lynn B. are authorized to obtain new quotes and complete the job with costs not to exceed $3000.
