Event Coordinator’s Report / How Events Restart Safely (HERS) – Scott Aster and Dennis Wildfogel

Several people have responded to Scott’s request for people to set additional “Corona” courses. The club is not likely to stage regular events until the fall due to pandemic restrictions. The Event Coordinating Committee is looking for a new South Bay EC to replace George Minarik.

Scott will organize a monthly club Zoom meeting, focusing on review of the “Corona course of the month”.

The President asked the HERS committee to draft COVID-19 safety guidelines for club events, using the Bon Tempe guidelines as a model.

The next Board meeting was set for Thursday, April 15 from 8–10 PM.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:55 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
Nick Corsano
BAOC Secretary
