Meeting Highlights

By , BAOC Secretary

The board approved the confirmation of Jeff Lanam to head the Junior Grant Committee.

We received a favorable response from NASA to our proposal to map and hold an orienteering event at Moffett Field. We hope to hold an event at the end of June.

The Junior World Orienteering Championship (JWOC) task force held their first meeting in February. They are focusing on maps, money, manpower/womanpower, and marketing. They will hold an open committee meeting at Boggs Mountain, Saturday evening, before the potluck.

The board voted to approve formation of a general donation committee that will evaluate general donations by BAOC and recommend them to the board.

The board approved giving permission to Dan Felitsky of SDO to reprint articles from our bulletin in the newsletter of SDO and a USOF/COF repository, including the wording that the article is reprinted by permission of BAOC and the author, and to publish photographs with the permission of the photographer.

The board approved negotiating with terraloco to produce a series of orienteering events in November, following the Pacheco Pass event, including the sprint championships.

The Event Director needs to post event information on the Web site as soon as possible, so that potential attendees who see our publicity can get additional information about the event. Event write-ups are also necessary, to thank volunteers, give reviews of the courses, and suggestions for improving next year.

The BAOC Annual General Meeting will be at 1:30 PM, April 19th at Sunol.

The next board meeting tentative date is June 15th or 16th, 2009.
