New West Hotel conference room @ 7 p.m
19 members present
We welcomed 3 new members to the club, Eric J., Wade A. & Leon W.
The February minutes were read by Interm Prez Jim K. & were accepted by all members present.
Treasurer’s report was given & the club is in very good standing in the account. Report was accepted by all members present.
As was reported earlier, we have changed our Insurance policy to what the SVAA offers from the Competition Insurance policy that we have had for many years.. The reason is cost, we got the same coverage thru SVAA cheaper that what Competition Ins. required (Competition Ins. is now a Wayfarer Ins. Partner) for a lot less.. Plus any event that the club holds is covered by the SVAA program & is listed in their monthly newsletter .. Bernie M. represented the club in Lethbridge at the SVAA spring meeting & our club was well received by all present..
