Item 1 - Agenda approved as presented

Item 2 - Minutes dated October 17th, 2009 approved as written

Item 3.1 - Comedy Night: No report

Item 3.2 - Off Leash Area
  • We have rolls of fencing materials sufficient for total build.  We have the posts also but there are not T Bars.  Exchange in progress.  We will be recruiting a building team for early May 2010.  Rest of required funds will come from one time donation from seasonal visitors and members of BOSC.  Suzy will solicit.
Item 3.3 - Petanque tournament / Hoedown (See all proposals in Item 9 below)
  • Collision for July 17th since FCN Festival rescheduled this coming season to July 14th to July 18th, 2010).  Two proposals discussed:
    • Proposal 1: Move Hoedown to August 7th, 2010
    • Proposal 2: Golf tournament on August 7th and Hoedown August 21st in tandem with Petanque.
  • Paul will approach Don to discuss options.
Item 4 - Marque tent options
  • BOSC must ensure a storage area is used otherwise this initiative may be hindered from further execution.  Accountabilities for ongoing use needs to be taken into consideration.
  • Paul to discuss with Bare Oaks Mgmt that intent of the purchase of event tent is for Bare Oaks usage - not exclusively for BOSC events.
  • Size of marquee discussed.  Smaller ones that allows for build up, should be considered.
  • Some homework needed by BOSC members on costs and options.
  • All to report their findings at the next meeting.
Item 5 - Fund raising and 50/50 draws
  • Concern raised.  Another fund raising event took place with our BOSC led one.  After discussion, it was confirmed that it did not affect ours.  Non issue
  • Note that going forward in place of the 50/50 draw, Stony will continue to hold his raffles and donate 40% to BOSC.
  • Encourage lead to advertise/promote the Stony draw on events so that people come with their cash.
