Hopefully this will let him spend much more time on the committee boat and showing his championship winning dogs. Strategic Planning Committee: • The new strategic planning committee is working with all committees to address the Club’s future needs. • The primary objective identified so far by the committee is the need for storage. Storage problems have existed since the club was built and was not permitted to have a basement. • We have preliminary drawings from 2012 of a 3,000 sq. ft. storage facility that would also give us the bonus of an additional, elevated pool deck. If you have any comments, concerns or suggestions, please call or email me. Respectfully, Stephen Robinson, Commodore 302-598-5360 cell The Mooring Lines Sunday, June 15, 2014 • The costs for the new deck, furniture, pool improvements, and pool bathhouse improvements are running close to budgeted numbers. • The finance committee developed an investment policy for the board’s review and discussion in July. • A Committee Chair Code of Conduct was approved. This document is on our website. • New election protocols were approved outlining behavior expected from candidates and members. This document is on our website. • Legacy members Cassie Rempfer and Zachary Rempfer were approved as full active LYC members. • A design for a 3000 sq. ft. storage building with an elevated pool deck designed in 2012 was discussed. Storage has been an issue since the building was built. The plans will be given to the Strategic Planning Committee for review. • The Lingo family donated 300 Jungle Jim tickets to sell at a discounted price at $25 each with the proceeds to go toward the maintenance and repair expense of our committee boat, the JJ Mason. Mrs. Lingo is the daughter of the late Janice Mason.
