GUESTS: Norbert Knapp, Sandra Knapp

The meeting was called to order at 4:55 p.m. by President Alicia McVicker.

SECRETARY: On motion made and seconded the Minutes of the last meeting were approved as written.

TREASURER: Sally stated that she had transferred $2000 from savings into our checking account as it was getting a little low. The party fund now stands at $222.73 plus whatever the last deposit was.

V.P. MEMBERSHIP: Jim reported that Pam Blower paid her $30 membership dues. Other than that he had nothing to report.

V.P. SOCIAL: : Ann asked that we e-mail Marie rather than phone her regarding the St. Patrick’s Day party. Marie appreciated Verena’s blast.

V.P. SPECIAL: Ann will be taking a count of who will be attending the Far West Convention in Scottsdale, Arizona. She has been able to get hold of Ingrid Wicken and told her we would be bringing the trophy case down this spring. Ann suggested we rent a truck to transport the trophy case and make arrangements to pack up the contents and see to the supervision of the move. This was approved by the Board.

NACHRICHTEN: Jane will get the next issue out after the St. Pat’s party, probably the first week of April. Sally has pictures from the Year of the Monkey Cherry Blossom party given at auction by Alicia and Cheryl. Dot will submit an article on Sally and her service auction wine tasting item.

ADVISOR: Bob had nothing to report.

PRESIDENT: Alicia thanked Jane for coming up with the Save Our Club article which really stirred the pot. Alicia said she appreciated the fact that Sut Kunkel’s son and his wife, Barbara, attended. In all we had 39 members in attendance and lots of ideas were presented. Alicia also had many phone calls from absent members explaining why they couldn’t attend. Bob stated that he has candidates for all open positions on the Board. Ann says Phil would be willing to run for president. There was discussion re the purpose of our bi-monthly meetings and it was decided to call them “social meetings”. Miriam Corbett and Tom Swift are both candidates for Membership. Jim Peet will be newsletter editor. It was decided to make the duties of Nachrichten editor less demanding. Any such changes will be made when the new Board takes office on June 1st. Sally suggested that we start spending down the treasury if we don’t make a big push for new members.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS: Sandra Knapp came prepared to address the Board but decided to defer her suggestions until the next Board is convened. Norbert stated that some clubs hold their first meeting at home base but move the second meeting of the month to a pizza parlor. Alicia said that a suggestion has been made to have one dinner meeting and one luncheon meeting. Jane suggested the club consider supporting a junior skiers organization, either Far West or another such junior ski organization. Bob said that Tom Swift might be interested in running for president. He will check further with him.

The next meeting will be on March 28th at Sally Lash’s. Thereafter, tentative meetings will be held on April 25th at Alicia’s and the joint board meeting on May 23rd at the Peet’s.

There being no further business before the Board the meeting was adjourned at 5:35 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
