On Dec 3rd we held our monthly Executive Board Meeting at 10:00 AM with seven board members present. The minutes will be posted at a later date.
Some Highlights: We discussed our 80th Anniversary plans, the annual banquet (which will be held March 11th), club anniversary shirts and other items promoting our club. We also discussed an 80th Anniversary Celebration Day (to be held Saturday, March 4th) that would include non-member participation in friendly shuffling matches so-as to give the public at large an appreciation for the game of shuffleboard and our historical significance to the community. There will be a sign up sheet posted in the cue house asking for volunteers to help with this event.
It was confirmed that the Northern District Masters Tournament will be held at the CMS Club courts on March 23/24 followed by the Masters Banquet which will be held at Quail Hollow. Al Best confirmed that he will follow up with the city on the current status to repair the court roofing and also verify if our resurfacing of the courts was approved in the city budget. Paperwork will be filed for the club’s participation in the NSB city’s February Mardis Gras 2017 parade. We adjourned early and set up for the General Members Meeting.
