Did you not read the part about they would be done when I got back. No one was complaining for the 18 months they irregularly appeared in the past before I have been able to post them for 15 consecutive months. I am glad it was only my friends beating me down, I would hate to see what others would do. Now lets all form a big hug circle and sing "we shall overcome".

Here they are:

11 yes, 0 no, 0 abstain
The motion to suspend the rules and allow the date change to July 24-25 for the Whitehorn Cove contest was approved.

Wayne Lohman proposed to the Board of Directors, a Sanctioning Compliance Rule on how to handle situations where Guaranteed Prize Money letter had not be posted with KCBS or a certificate of insurance was not received both as required for sanctioning.

Don Harwell reported, a service has been identified to allow members to call into the board meetings. This service can permit members to talk or to be muted for listen only mode. A form to register to monitor or speak must be provided to the KCBS at least 24 hours (close of business, 5:00 p.m., K.C. MO. C.S.T.) in writing on a form provided by the office and directed to the Secretary in care of the KCBS office.

The issue of changes or revisions to the Team of the Year was discussed. Mike Lake assigned a review to Linda Mullane and the Rules Committee.

Ed Roith reported there have been some problems with delayed mailing or delivery of CBJ class forms, and reports, by instructors. Ed recommended a mandatory procedure for CBJ class reporting which was adopted by the Board.

Linda Mullane reported to the Board concerns about the contest with more than 50 teams and Rep responsibilities. The board adopted a policy to begin in 2010 that the sanctioning agreement will provide for one additional Contest Rep for each 25 teams or part of after the first 50.

These are not the official minutes of the meeting. They are simply provided as an effort to give members a quick summary of the board meeting.
