Board Meeting Summary

Board Meeting Summary

By:  John Ritter

The meeting was held on January 16th, 2018 at the home of Howard Kantor.  The meeting was called to order at 7:20 pm by the President, Jeri Brooke.  The Directors in attendance were:  Dan Albano, Sheree Anshel, Jeri Brooke, Sharon Heckman, John Logan, John Miller, Chuck Mollard, Paddy Mollard, Howard Kantor, John Ritter and Ellen Sherk.   A quorum was present.

The Board Minutes from December Board Meeting were approved.

The club continues to be in good financial shape and has a very strong cash balance. Concern was raised that the Club’s current cash balance is far in excess of its anticipated need.  It was agreed to amend the 2018 budget that was approved at the December Board Meeting to add $4000 for various expenditures that will be approved by action(s) of the new Club Board.  The intent is that the Board will manage its budget and operations over time to diminish the club’s cash balance.

In the month of December there were 7 new members. Total current club membership is 606.  It is to be noted that the current club membership does not include any 2017 members that did not renew as of December 31, 2017.  As in the past, members who engage primarily in spring and summer activities do not renew their membership until the spring or summer seasons.  The Board fully expects that once the later renewals are in place the total club membership will be in excess of 800, as the club finished in 2017.

Members are again reminded that the Calendar on the club’s website is the place to go for information on club events, times, locations, etc.  In addition, there will be an email sent to club members once per week that lists the upcoming week’s events.  If an event is added after the email is sent there will be another email which essentially says: “A new (event) has been scheduled for (date) and is posted on the club’s calendar”.

Overall, the winter sports activities have been hampered by the severe lack of snow in Park City so far, this winter.  Facilitated by machine made snow, the downhill skiing is off to a strong start.  Micro Spike, Yak Trak and Cross Country events have been severely affected by the lack of snow.  Think SNOW!

It was agreed that the Volunteers Appreciation Party will held at the Dejoria Center at a date TBD.  The Bash (when the new Club Board Members will be ratified) will be held at the Jeremy Ranch Club on February 23rd.  There will be a $10 charge per person.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:20 pm.

The club’s Holiday Party was held at the Sidewinder Marriott on December 9th.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:45 pm.
