LBRA Board Meeting – Wednesday Mar 14 at 7:30pm

LBRA Members —
The next meeting of the Board of Directors will be held this coming Wednesday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the boathouse.  Members are strongly encouraged to attend and make their views and needs known.

At the meeting, the following topics will be considered:

1. Spring Regatta Post-Mortem.  We will go through revenue, expenses, and lessons learned from the Spring Regatta.  Operational topics involve how our launches are equipped in support of race needs and how we mark the course for greatest safety.  The regatta made a small but comfortable profit as a result of its 60% growth over last year.  Unsolicited feedback from coaches and competitors was universally enthusiastic.  This is seen as our most welcoming, best organized, and smoothest running regatta in recent memory, with the five hours of 2000-meter events noted in particular.  The referees did a fabulous job in running on time, with no safety incidents.  Also regularly mentioned is the improvement in bow number procedures, timely heat sheet and results posting, and the coffee truck.  Everyone wants the regatta to continue and thrive.

2. Dues Adjustments.  Special cases involving relocations and injuries have resulted in requests for dues forgiveness.  We will cover the cases and compare with precedent.

3. Southwest Regionals Status.  Rob will preview the contract we proposed, which is with USRowing for a decision.

4. 10N Status.  The city is requiring certain building code legalization steps be taken, none onerous.  A plan of action will be discussed.  Meanwhile, the temporary use of 8N for storage will cease soon as its demolition begins on March 26 as part of a neighborhood beautification project.  The footprint will be converted to landscaping but the Marine Stadium sign will remain.  It will be necessary for us to obtain portable temporary storage until 10N is cleared for re-occupancy.

5. Sublessee Billings.  We will review the state of accounts for our co-tenants CSULB and LBJC.  Accounts Receivable for rent and pro-rated maintenance costs will be covered.

6. Learn to Row Day.  We will consider dates for the open house, a plan for summer camps, and a budget.  The national LTR Day is Saturday, June 2.
