Board of Directors Meeting

03/04/2020 at Lorene’s on 23rd St.

Call to order:  6:00 PM by President Larry Young

Present:     Larry Young, Bill Dean, Adrian Medina, Virgil & Kim Miller, Danny Ellison, Liz Zaninovich, and Carl Lange.

Absent:       Dave Kielty and Betsy Slauson.

Guests:       Linda McNitt and Chris Espitia.

Minutes:     Danny moved to approve minutes from the last BOD meeting. Adrian seconded the motion. Motion passed.

Financial Report:  A copy of the past month’s financials were distributed.  Within all of the accounts, the club has $22,131.39.  Carl and Larry recently opened an account for the 501(c)3 arm of our accounting at Valley Strong Bank.  This will provide a “cleaner” means of accounting our business.

Club Logo:    Bill is still working on it.

Streets of Bakersfield:  Larry had Virgil share with the board the contents of a meeting he attended earlier today.  Marking the streets is going to be time consuming and possibly challenging.  Currently, the Chalk Team consists of Steve Taylor, Mitch Townsend, Steve Dallons, Annie Bailey, Mark Pucilowski, David Kielty and Virgil Miller.  More volunteers are needed (8-10) to direct participants to their parking spots.  Will try to enlist more at the general meeting next week. Tony Castiglione, with the Streets of Bakersfield, will have vests for the volunteers.

Gambler’s Classic 2021:  Do we have someone that wants to lead it?  Linda McNitt suggested maybe we do it on a smaller scale or have it at a local hotel.  She also suggested a casino night one night and maybe a poker run on a second day.  There was a lot of discussion.  Liz suggested putting it out to the club at the next meeting.

Leap Year Day Run:  Thank you to Virgil and Kim Miller for the fun and successful run.

Newsletter:  Larry wants a monthly or semi-monthly digital newsletter that can be sent out to all members.  He wants contributions for it by all board members.  Nothing definitive was established by the board.

Upcoming Events:  The Loading Chute in Creston on 3/28/2010.  Roger Buckles will take the lead on this. Friday Night Graffiti at the Firehouse Rosedale Station has started back up beginning 3/6/2020.  Thursday Night Cruise-in at Chuy’s on Rosedale Highway has started back up.

Kim will be out of town for the General Meeting.  Someone is needed to take the minutes at the general meeting.  Liz volunteered.

Adjourn:     7:10 PM
