Approval of Minutes
Chris Schriver moved to approve the minutes of the November 3, 2021 Board of Directors meeting as submitted. George DeMartz seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
Membership: Greg Boggs provided the membership report.
Publications: Chris Schriver provided an update on the Publications Committee activities.
Finance: Bill Jones presented projected financial statistics for the year to date and the current month.
Nominations: The election will open up at midnight. The ballots have been set up in Election Buddy and are set to send automatically.
The Board discussed the Annual Meeting and Banquet. The hotel in Frederick, MD has stopped responding to our emails and phone calls. We can go with the Frederick fire house if they are still available or explore other venues. The casinos in Pennsylvania and Maryland have either not responded or cannot accommodate a group of our size. The Board members will research venue options.
Invoices will be finalized and sent to the ToY sponsors.
The Board discussed excluding the KCBS World Open and the American Royal Open from the contest count for Tier 2 Master Series teams. The Invitational contests are already excluded under the ToY Rules, and the Board would like to encourage attendance at these prestigious events for Tier 2 teams that qualify. Since long-distance travel is involved, it makes sense to allow Tier 2 teams to experience both the Open and Invitational contests without penalty toward their Tier 2 standing. Lisa Dommes moved to update the Tier 2 Master Series ToY Rules to exclude the American Royal Open and the KCBS World Open from the total contest count for Tier 2 teams. Chiles Cridlin seconded the motion and it carried unanimously. Updated language will be posted to the website and an announcement will be made to the members through email and social media.
The meeting adjourned at 8:13 p.m.
Lisa Dommes, Board President
