The meeting was called to order by President JoAnn Smith at 6:50pm

Present were JoAnn Smith, Marla Patterson, Sharon Erwin, and Nick Tipton.

Christmas party all set for 9 DEC, same schedule as last year (see flyer). JoAnn has taken care of the reservation. Ernie is handling the meat (Marla will contact Betty to get Pat's info to Ernie) and Bob Fredrickson the dishes. Sharon has napkins, tablecloths, utensils, etc. Jack will handle booze and wine. Marla will direct the game.

No game the Wednesday BEFORE Thanksgiving and No game the Wednesday AFTER Christmas. 2 Jan to be determined.

Slow Play discussion. Trying very hard to get games done on time. There is fine line between efficiency and pushing the players. Some allowance must be made for the very old and the very new player, but everyone should try to meet the time schedule. A good game should finish between 10:30 and 10:45pm. Three options: 1) Warning for first offense. 2) Av+ Av- score to the guilty party, and/or 3) NP. Marla and Nick, as directors, are authorized to use their discretion and the board will back them up.

Next meeting tentatively planned for 14 NOV.

Meeting adjourned at 7:12 PM

Respectfully submitted,
