President’s Report – Marie-Josée Parayre

Cal-O-Fest Report – Gavin Wyatt-Mair

Treasurer’s Report – Sharon Evans

The club has about $154K in the bank, of which $135K comes from registrations for Cal-O-Fest. There have been some refund requests; the club has sufficient funds to cover refunds, even if everyone were to request one.

The club has a $24K loan from Orienteering USA for Cal-O-Fest, but we have been given leeway in repaying it.

Event Coordinator’s Report – Scott Aster

Only a few agencies are currently allowing applications for special event permits. Likely local events are UC Berkeley (July), Presidio (August), and Tamarancho (September). It is expected that more venues will become available after the lifting of the state’s pandemic restrictions on outdoor events on June 15.

Election of Officers – Steve Haas, Marie-Josée Parayre

Steve Haas, Chair of the Nominating Committee, presented the slate of candidates put forth by the committee (Steve, Dan Greene, Jitka Hiscox) and recommended by the Board of Directors:

President Marie-Josée Parayre called for any nominations from the floor. There were none, so she declared the candidates elected.

Service Award – Marie-Josée Parayre

The President announced that the recipient of the 2020 BAOC Service Award is long-time club volunteer, Registration Director, and former President Steve Haas.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:54 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Nick Corsano
BAOC Secretary
