November Team Game: The Board thanked Henrietta Moore for all her help getting teams set up for the November game. She did a great job.

Election of Officers: The notification went out to Unit 441 players about the upcoming election. Apparently a few people did not get the e-mail. Andy Vitalich is not running again. He has been great about setting up and tearing down the playing site. The Board will need to get someone else to take on this role or see if Andy Vitalich would be willing to continue in this role.

Next meeting: March 5, 2017 at 11:00. Topics to be discussed: 2017 Schedule and introduce new board members.

 

The meeting was adjourned at 12:45pm
