Olympic Yacht Club

Hello Yachties, As my Commodore year is coming to an end, I have realized I have not consistently posted the meeting minutes from each of our OYC Bridge and board meetings. My apologies. A big part of this is due to our transitioning through three different web sites this year. We started the year with Clubrunner and managing four different member data bases via Club Runner, Gmail, Facebook, Evite. In February, we evolved to our web site designed by our friend Drai hosted by Wix and still used ClubRunner website and the other data bases. Then in May, we launched our third web site Engineered by Board member Rusty Monette. Our third and final website is capable of hosting our member data base, producing Rendezvous invitations, and managing club finances and membership renewals. Rusty and I have a lot of updates planned during the slow times for him and his company early next year. Rusty's technical work has been pro-bono as well as his company is hosting our club web site free of charge. Our expenditures for our club web site have gone from $700/year to $100/year to 0 dollars/year. Our club is very financially healthy as we go into the end of boating season Holiday Fundraising Dinner and next years dues collection. As of the September board meeting we have $3,122.53 in checking, $8,100.53 in savings, Paypal has $100, for a total balance of 11,323.06.  For the past two years we tried holding board meetings at events. Mostly we found this was not productive, board and Bridge had to take time and focus away from the Rendezvous fun, and often we just didn't have time to hold a board meeting at OYC events. We have been holding meetings during the final quarter of the year during the week and we have been able to focus on the tasks at hand and able to perform more efficiently as a team and board. This year our incoming Commodore Leslie Norman, will establish board meeting locations and dates by January 1st for the entire year. Below are the minutes from our Boardmeeting held on September 23, 2016. The board has not yet approved the minutes for October, I will post them following Novembers board meeting. In the future the minutes will be posted as a word document on our OYCNW.org website.
