Minutes of the last meeting were read by Jay Parks in absence of the secretary. On the minutes it was recorded that discussion was held about assessments. Jim Hinesley said there was no discussion of assessments. Other members recalled that there was indeed discussion held about this. Randy Hutchinson explained his actions. Jim Hinesley pointed out that the club by laws had been broken by board paying assessments without the vote of the membership. After continued discussion Randy Hutchinson advised the club said that after August 30, 2010 the Mary D’s, the Declans, & Lucky for us will be withdrawn from the club. (This is when the club paid assessment term will expire.) Other corrections: under new business it should read bill due to Les Armstrong not bill die to Les Armstrong. Billie Brackenbury moved to accept corrected minutes, Eugene Raymond seconded the motion. Motion passed. It was requested to use am and pm in the minutes not 24 hour time.

from PLP for the donation we gave them last month, letter by email from
John no last name or address given came in from through the WPA e-mail
on the WPA web site, Letter from Jim Hinesley was read. Discussion was
held about the point system. Question was raised whether points were to
be awarded once or yearly? Randy Hutchinson said every year. The club has
6 (six) claims: Bridge Buster, Amanda 28, Commonwealth, Messy Soup, Mud
Pie, and Crusher. The club was reminded that 4 of these claims had been
turned over to the club by Jim Hinesley. Deb Palmer read her letter of
resignation as treasurer effective at the end of this term. She pointed
out the stress of the last month and being accused by Jim Hinesley of trying
to hide the problem-to bury it and avoiding his emails (even though she
hadn’t seen them due to being out of town) were the breaking points. Deb
feels that after 7 years it is time others take over.
Randy Hutchinson verbally resigned his position on all committees effective
immediately. Right now 328 points per year can be earned if points are
done yearly. Les Armstrong moved that points for claims be yearly. Molly
Countryman seconded the motion. Motion
