Ron motioned to spend money for the food for the catering at Morgan's Wonderland. Last year, this cost was reimbursed by CAST as Texas Farm Bureau wound up covering it.

Troy will attend their next meeting on behalf of QBC.

 

Bob and Lyle had a very difficult time getting Treasurer turned over at Wells Fargo. They spent 4 hrs at the bank trying to get it setup and the only outcome was that Wells Fargo needed an official letter from QBC that listed the current club officers. Bob also had a terrible time trying to get a check deposited from the fund raiser when their check-reading machine added an extra "2" to an account number and they never did get it straightened out. In turning over the Treasurer role, Bob mentioned that there are currently extra duties that are currently done by the Treasurer that could be distributed elsewhere in the club. In the coming months, expect to see a proposed change to the by-laws to help distribute these duties around. Some of these duties include managing the club roster and paperwork associated with the State Championship.
