The meeting was called to order by President AJ Stephani at 5:05 PM.
Present were Moese, Wisner Stephani, Purcell, Levinson, Mirus, Wilson,
Orr. Absent was Manne.
A.J. read the minutes from the May meeting and they were approved.
We talked about the fact that a representative from the Alzheimer's
Association came to the Regional. Although money was collected, it was
suggested we do more follow-up here at the CBC.
The three priorities were gone
over. There is no new news on the building and lease or the zero
tolerance. However, our membership co-chairs Joanne Earls and Chris
Hastie continue to do a great job and attendance is up both at the
Friday afternoon and Tuesday evening novice games.
A request was made from District Diretor
for Charity and Goodwill appointments. Barb Levinson was nominated from
our Unit for the Goodwill committee.
Mike Lipp, our CBC
coordinator and Debbie Cummings, our supplies chair both called A.J. and
verbally resigned our positions. Both were thanked profusely for their
service. A.J. will ask Ron Manne and Potter to spearhead the search
for new people with the thought that the 2 positions may be combined.
We suggested doing something to honor Pamela Granovetter's
accomplishment of achieving Grand Life Master. There were a few
suggestions. We also thought Tim Crank should be recognized for his
attainment of Diamond Life Master.
Susan Wisner briefly went
over our revenue and expense statement. The Tuesday games are both up
slightly. She will look into doing two different reports - one for the
CBC (Cincinnati Bridge club) and the other for the CBA( Cincinnati
Tournament Committtee Report
reported on the NLM tournament. She and co-chair Sonya Wilson had
predicted a table count of 50 and there were actually 62. There was
positive feedback and the feeling is that we can plan to make it an
annual event. Mike suggested raising the lower MP of Saturday games.
The Flying Pig Regional will net about $3,000 more than last year.
Patti English and Gerry Mirus worked very hard to make this a successful
event. The table count was up about 80 tables from last year mainly due
to the "orphan" game (7:30PM vs 9:00AM). We met the minimum for food
concessions every day . The hospitality in between sessions spearheaded
by Gayle Keaney was really nice. We did get some suggestions and
critques which the committe will review to make changes for next year.
Adam Parrish held a very successful seminar on the Saturday previous to
the tourney and it was well attended and well received.
The Middletown Sectional is the next tournament scheduled for our
Unit. Mary Clifton, who is in charge, sent the ACBL a request for
cancellation of same. There should be some money left in the account
for the tournament and we briefly discussed that we should use the
weekend that is available.
Tuesday evening game ideas
There was a meeting
with Amy Fisher, Chris Hastie and Steve Moese to suggest other types of
games for this group. They also suggested starting at 6:30PM sooner
than the agreed upon time of September.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:42PM.
