He was asked to leave grounds for the vote. Welcome to Shoreline Boat Club Ben and Dawn. Members were asked if they knew of anyone interested in joining Shoreline Boat Club there are applications out in the membership box in the tool room.

There was some concern about our road by Mike Carey, and Wayne mentioned it will be addressed when green-street gets done, it could be a lot cheaper since equipment is already in area since they are working on green- Street. Projected date for this is September 2023, as the grant is due by then.

Under Article VI. Visitors and Guests
Section 4. Private Parties held on club property
2, Applications to use for the backroom must be filled out and signed. Two checks must be attached to the application one for the Back Room Rental in the amount of $25.00 and one for $150.00 to be used as a Clean Up charge if the Back Room is not cleaned up to Club Standards within 24 hours, or before the next scheduled function, whichever comes first. The $150.00 Clean-Up charge will be returned to applicant if clean-up standards and time frame are met. Applications must be posted on Bulletin Board upon approval.
2. Applications to use the Back Room must be filled out and signed. Two checks must be attached to the application one for the Back Room rental $50.00 and one for $150.00 to be used as a Clean Up charge if the Back Room is not cleaned up to Club Standards within 24 hours, or before the next scheduled function, whichever comes first. The $150.00 Clean-Up charge will be returned to applicant if clean-up standards and time frame are met. Applications must be posted on Bulletin Board upon approval.
Reasoning- Increase revenue for the Club and bring rental cost closer to what other halls charge.
Article III. Membership
Section 2. All applicants for membership in the Club shall be made in writing, endorsed and dated by two (2) members, and approved by membership committee, and dated on approval (11/3/90).
- A person must be a member in good standing for a period of at least (1) full year before he can sponsor an applicant for membership (5/3/86).
- Each family or individual membership will be limited to one (1) sponsorship of an application per year (5/3/86).
Section 2. All applicants for membership in the Club shall be made in writing, endorsed, approved by the membership committee, and dated for approval (3/5/22).
This deleting any need for a sponsor.
Reasoning: People wishing to become members do not always know anyone in the Club therefore cannot find a sponsor. This could bring in new members. Prospective members would still have to go through the probation period before being voted in by members.
