Board Minutes



Tuesday, 4 February 2020

The President, noting that a quorum was established, called the meeting to order at 5.35 pm.   All board members were present, as was Jesse Laird and Joanne Melville.

Secretary’s Report 

The Board accepted the minutes of the January Board meeting.

Treasurer’s Report

The Treasurer presented the financial report for January and pointed out that entries were down compared to last year.  He suggested the nomination of the President as the designated Registered Agent for Quick Tricks with the Florida Division of Corporations as the current agent no longer wants that position.  A motion naming James Miller as the Registered Agent was made, seconded and passed.  He also requested that, as soon as possible, the President, Vice-President and Treasurer be authorized as signatories on all accounts at BB&T (now Truist Bank).  A resolution to that effect was passed unanimously and signed by the Secretary.

Cruise update

Joanne reminded the Board that all arrangements were going well and smoothly and that a “meet and greet” with the responsible Cruise representatives will take place before the game on Tuesday the 18th of February.


New Business


No plans for next year’s cruise have yet been made since the idea of a “destination” is still being considered.  However, the entire Board seemed to agree that, should there be a cruise, if possible, players of all levels should be included, provided that there would be both and open and a limited game.  The “destination” seems unlikely, as it appears to be more expensive and less attractive for bridge players.

Thursday evening games

Various options were discussed but, for now, it was decided to try having a Stratified Swiss game once a month.  The first one will be on Thursday, February 27.

Next Meeting

The next meeting of the Board is scheduled for Tuesday, 3 March.

The meeting was adjourned at 6.15 pm.
