TREASURER: Sally stated that current assets are $16,035.64 with April income $982.12 and expenses $1450.23. Everything this year has been below budget but our annual expenses ran about $1800 more than income. The installation expenses ran about $600 to $800 over what we took in. Sally gave the waiters an extra $40 for their good service and the extra wine they provided at no charge.

The proposed 2016-2017 budget was then addressed. Sally presented two budgets, one using a moving van and one renting a truck to move the trophy case from Mammoth to Norco. At Alicia’s suggestion Sally called Bob Chapman who agreed to help with the removal by hiring people in Mammoth to pack everything and unpack it in Norco. Sally figures the cost for transportation plus three motel rooms mid-week in July would be about $1500 as opposed to $3000 to hire a moving van. Sally made a motion that the Board accept the proposed budget shown using a moving van, seconded by Ann. MSP

Marie said she had had catering bids from $500 to $1,000, which prompted her to decide that she and her staff would do the catering for the event. The cost will be $40 per person which includes dinner featuring a roast pig and drinks including draft beer, mai tais and bottled water. Any drinks other than these will be BYOB. All present agreed that the cost was very reasonable and these arrangements were approved with many thanks to Marie.
