Minutes of the BAOC Board Meeting held September 9, 2014

Present: Nick Corsano, Steve Haas, Jeff Lanam (President), Nancy Lindeman, Bob Cooley, Scott Aster, Vladimir Gusiatnikov, Vicki Woolworth (Secretary), and Stephanie Maclean.

The meeting was called to order at 7:10 PM at the Foster City Recreation Center by President Jeff Lanam.

President's Report – Jeff Lanam

Jeff commented on the nice event at Tahoe, not a huge turnout but drew from a wide area. Matej Sebo participated in JWOC and events in Italy and Bulgaria. The 501(c)(3) application was finally approved by the IRS, next step is to apply for state approval.

Online Votes/Approval of Minutes – Vicki Woolworth

The minutes of the June 2014 meeting were approved by an email vote of the board on July 6, 2014. There were no other email votes this quarter.

Treasurer's Report – Sharon Evans, by email

Jeff reviewed the financials for this quarter, noting that Boggs lost a small amount of money primarily because the park required that we rent a water truck service to keep the dust down. Event costs in general are going up mostly due to increased permit fees and additional park requirements. We may need to consider raising event fees.

Mapping Report – Bob Cooley

No major activity other than a Sprint map for Joaquin Miller Park.

A-meet Report – Gary Kraght, by email

2014 O in the Oaks will include a Maze-O. Plans for next year include Joe Grant (last weekend in April) and Little Truckee Summit in September.
Stephanie Maclean reminded everyone that the Calero meet is coming up soon, and there will be a dinner at the Chicken Coop.

Incorporation and 501(c)(3) Status

As mentioned in the President's Report, the 501(c)(3) application was approved by the IRS. Next step is to apply for state approval.
