Dan Feuer: Requested the FBYC to organize the Fairfield Bay Community Club Luau. The Community Club would take care of food, band, and fire performers. We would organize and sell tickets. We will share with Randy Baker and give you a final answer. We selected Labor Day weekend, Friday September 1. Cool Pool will have an event during that weekend; but felt it would be a good time and not so hot.

Treasurers Report: $1,240.18

Dues will continue to be $20. Martini Party in October will be the start of half-price membership.

Gregory showed us the new Membership Form and flyer info. He will be ready for all advertising using website and facebook.

Gregory reported plenty of name tags for the new year.

Supplies for Next Year – Kenton will go down to Marina and purchase supplies needed for this year.

Need to look at another barge event. Could it be instead of a tie-up on a Saturday? Kenton brought up renting the Belle for a May tie-up. Nancy mentioned that she had contacted the Marina for another event; told no insurance on the Belle and they are not using anymore. Kenton will check and get back with us.
