For the Mondays, start time of 7 pm, time to observe league play, intro, then time on the ice. Then, the plan is to create a 3 week mini league March 7, 14, and 21 for Monday night. Expectation is that current Monday night members will be enrolled, and then teams break up and look to recruit or take on 2 new teams. If there are more than 24 curlers, would look for Sunday or other nights. Board discussed charging a $10 fee per person and $45 for the mini league.

club event that may need all freezer space. Regarding the cases of Point Root Beer - they did remove four cases, left two cases that can be sold at the bar – it appears students are taking the root beer from the walk-in, and not paying for the soda - misunderstanding to be cleared up by Kayla.
