Reel Film Festival
Natalie Wiest reported on the possibility of using the Alamo Draft house for the festival. They want $1,000.00 up front and a guarantee of $2,000 in food sales. The consensus of the Board was that the Reel Paddle fest is not feasible at this time.
HASK webmaster meeting
Natalie and Harmon met with HASK and found that the online waivers are not that difficult to complete. The club will need to contract with a 3rd party company for this waiver service. The cost is $150.00 per year. Harmon had also gotten some ideas from HASK to use on our website. We will “borrow” some ideas and will give credit to those whom it is due. Some ideas that were discussed: Categories in the “Events” tab, different colors, forums and adding a widget for maneuverability in the “Upcoming Events” tab.
Frank made a motion to have the club pay the 3rd party fee for the waiver. This voted on and approved.
Natalie stated that everyone must register on our trips to be covered insurance-wise and we (HCC) need to be more stringent with this issue. The waivers are available online and it was suggested that the trip leader should also have hard copies in the event that a member or non-member forgets theirs.
Frank motioned that the board require members to sign an ACA liability waiver at the time of membership/renewal.
Natalie expressed concern over the Bayou La Fouche trip regarding trip miles (self-reported?) and waivers for the participants. Frank will post this trip on the Forum. Kent Welters had contacted Natalie about this trip.
Natalie will be speaking on “How to Run a Successful Trip”. She is excited to share the powerpoint to which she has access from Robert Stark of HASK. She will need a computer and laptop.
Fran has contacted John Bartos for a possible presentation in the future. He will get back to her with some ideas. She has also emailed Mary Z about the possibility of discussing the finer points of Dutch oven cooking (if Mary’s health allows).
Terry is investigating an issue about a payment glitch with one of our members.
“Check the Weather” or it’s “Better to Stop to Fight another Day”.
Honey will ask Jim Goodale to assist with setting up the audio/visual equipment. We are still actively searching for a Sergeant at Arms, though.
Harmon motioned to end the meeting. Natalie seconded. The meeting was adjourned.
