Meeting Minutes

May 12, 2015

 

Chairman The meeting was called to order at 7:02 pm EDT.  In attendance were Meka Taulbee, John Long, Eric Reitinger, Al Clark, Jerelyn Biehl and Sherri Campbell. Andy Roy was unable to make the call.

 

1.The minutes from March 9, 2015 call were approved as distributed.

2.Action Items

a. LMWE 2016 – Sherri has had conversations with the Clearwater organizers and they have offered to put up $1,000 towards Sherri’s travel & accommodations in 2016 to offset expenses.  Motion approved.

3.Office Report

  1. The Laser Sailor: Summer issue on Google docs; deadline is June 15, but will wait a few days for regattas held just after.
  2. Finances & membership: reports distributed earlier. The budgets are doing well with the limited travel & increase in membership fees.  There will be an adjustment as the contract pay has been moved from the 15th to the end of each month, which will sort out at year end.

4. Other Business

a. MWW debrief – John Long reported a lower than usual attendance for MWW.  Cal YC may not have spread the word enough to push the event.  He thought that the NOR was not on the event website (main Cal YC website).  RC made some poor decisions on the first day. Scoring was mixed up (included handicap times) until corrected after a call from the office.  Shoreside things went well.  2016 will most likely go to ABYC. The Exec will re-evaluate for 2017.

b. 2015 North Americans – AGM plan: Will be held on July 30 in NC. Al and Sherri will be on site to facilitate the meeting.

c. 2016 regatta planning: regatta grid on the website. District Secretaries will receive an email to review and begin planning if their district is noted.

d. WQ system inquiry - discussion regarding the consideration of radial scores to be considered for full rig events for sailors in transition from one fleet to the other.  The group agreed that our system has been consistent and fully outlined for many years.  Those sailors in this transition phase need to plan ahead and prioritize their goals.

 

Meeting adjourned at 7:25 pm

 

Next call: June 8, 2015
