Other –

Badger Heating -  came in to check the zoning issues in hallway, locker rooms, bathrooms.  Also checked the kitchen issue of cold air in the range area -  shouldn’t be that cold, not resolved, needs to be checked again.

Committees -  need to address the area of creating committees to assist in tasks -  Jack Edgerton has requested help with reverse raffle -  no response.  Communication is  another area that needs to be improved.  Matt Davis suggested a weekly update -  format to be determined.  

Static Board of Directors -  Steve Wykle … general discussion of looking at the composition of the current board, and terms being held.. Looking to recruit potential board candidates to re-energize - add benefits.

Cost of plastic cups -  Jack  Edgerton reported the cost of disposable beer cups now cost $.10 each -  discussion of using glass now instead of plastic.  Appears inventory is sufficient at this point for use during leagues -  bonspiels would revert back to plastic.  Glasses would need to be rinsed and placed in the kitchen at the dishwasher.

Ice -  running out -  During the women’s bonspiel, it appears that the ice maker was not keeping up with demand, needing to purchase bags of ice to get through the evening.   Jack E also reported that he needed to change the Co2 tank during the bonspiel -  will plan to get a spare on hand to change when needed.

Plaques - league winners.  Matt suggested that we start posting plaques of league winners -  start a new history.
