Board Meeting – March 7, 2003
Place: Roger Burns’ home
Present: Ed, Roger, Chris, David, Jimmy, Leon, Nancy
Absent: Laurel, Gail, Brenda, Emily
Ed opens with discussion about replacing David Weston. Decided that board members will ask around to see who is interested.
Nancy was next with financial report. $7,922 total with $2,974 for River Falls repair. Chris recommended that we keep close to $4,000 in the bank to run H.M. Nancy – Keep 100 dollars in ones for the next dance. Form 1099 at dance for callers /musicians who make more than $600 – hope we don’t have to.
Leon gave us a little health update. He is doing better.
Ed: Band Payment. We have before gave $100 each for band, member/caller. Some dances just don’t make that. We agreed that we would only guarantee $75 each. If the dance makes good, they make more. Leon now gets a fixed rate of $200 a dance. Leon will now take care of the gas bill and cut the grass.
Admission charge: It was decided that age 14 – 17 will pay $4.00
Who ever opens needs to have someone to take money till around 8:30
Chris gave us his idea about the River Falls T shirt. Bill West designed it- looks good. We decided to get 100 made.
