Executive Reports

President

The President gave opening remarks concerning his view of how he wished the Board to operate in the upcoming year.  These included a greater emphasis on local bowlers and houses.  The need to serve the houses in Gatineau was stressed.  The CDTBA is not just McArthur Lanes.  Pierre stressed the need for communications to include French.

The agenda will be prioritised so that important items are covered and not left to the end and either not dealt with or dealt with briefly.

The President presented a bowlers dictionary for review and proposed that it be distributed to all bowlers.  This was generally accepted provided sponsorship could be found and once some review/editing had been done.

Vice President

Nothing to report.

Secretary

Kits are on order for distribution in August.

The secretaries computer is being checked out by Graham Ginsberg to determine if the CD is defective and if more memory is needed.  Graham reported that he can find no problem with the CD drive and that more memory should be added.  Problem were found with the modem and this will either be corrected by a new driver or a replacement installed.

Treasurer

Some refunds are due to golfers due to the rain imposed change of date.  Cheques will be prepared shortly for distribution at the beginning of the season.

There is a discrepancy in what was transferred from the WIBC versus what was believed to have been in the fund raising (50/50 draw) kitty.  Action Cameron

Committee Reports

Lane Inspection

The was a long discussion regarding why the had been so much difficulty with lane inspection in recent years.  There was no agreement on the reasons although some felt it was due to inspectors now not being paid.

A compromise was suggested by Cameron that will be presented to the joint Lane Inspection Committee, which is that 50% of the fees paid by the centres for inspection would be paid to the inspectors while the other 50% would be put into the lane inspection fund to pay for future equipment purchases.

McArthur Lanes were inspected on June 16 by Cameron with assistance of two directors from Montreal.

Annual Tournament

The survey indicated a desire for a February or March tournament.
