Alicia asked whether the reports turned in to Sally could be consolidated. Sally said there were three reports, Marie’s expenses, Sandra’s expenses and Income and everything was finalized now. She mentioned that Sandra and Norbert did not pay because of their help and Norbert paid the attendance for Wailers’ president, who helped with the beer (what else!).

ADVISOR Bob stated that he, Ann and Richard Berklite had attended the Swiss Fair.

PRESIDENT: Alicia had no comment.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS: Re: Drinking at GSC parties. Marie said there was a lot of alcohol consumed at the Luau. Our insurer says the individual host of a GSC party is liable for people who may get pulled over for drinking too much and we need to take the keys from anyone who is noticeably inebriated. The board decided to table the discussion on alcohol at parties to be addressed by a future board. Bob suggested looking into an insurance policy which covers homeowners at a party. Sally will check on this with Fred.

Benno has sent a memo regarding mobile phones. Ann says a lot of the clubs are using the program. Sally says it takes a lot of work as you have to completely change the website and she doesn’t think it would be cost effective. Alicia suggested that Benno check into this and see what the cost is and how difficult it would be to program. Ann will send Benno a note.

Alicia will host the next BoarAlicia will host the next Board meeting on August 31st.

There being no further business before the Board the meeting was adjourned at 5:45 p.m.
