    The two voting threads for this year’s by-laws changes are up. We checked each charter member on the site to confirm their eligibility at the time of posting and we had 99 charter members. This made quorum for these by-law votes 20 voting members (1/5 of total voting membership). We currently have 20 votes for each of the changes.

    II. Quarterly financial Update for the 3rd QTR as of 10/14/16

    Quarterly Budget= $1400 (budgeted, spent, +/-)

    Club Expenditures $1050, $970, +$80

    Marketing $100, $75, +$25

    Administrative Fees $250, $250, $0We are currently under budget by $105 for this quarter. This surplus was the result of Coral Cove donating the materials for the September meeting to the club. This surplus will help us cover a large administrative fee in Q4 for a new club check book.

    Keep in mind, for either vote, 1/5 of the voting membership (charters) need to vote for us to have a quorum to change/ create these rules.

    B. MEETINGS (Zack)

    1. 2016 Meeting Schedule

    Charter members will receive early access to LMAR at 12:30.
    Raffle tickets will be discounted if more than one is purchased and we will be having some fantastic raffle and door prizes.

    DECEMBER 4th Holiday Social at Justin’s House. Potluck & White Elephant gift exchange. The gift MUST be aquarium related product with a value of less than $25.00.

    2017 Calendar: Here’s the date’s I’d like us to use for next year – This a tentative schedule and will be finalized at a later date.

    The April, October, November, and December meetings will break from our end of month schedule to focus on Holidays and to give a buffer between the swaps.

    Topics: Power outages in reef tanks (w/ bait bubbler and APC giveaway?), seahorses, 2x swaps, holiday social, hobbyist frag event possibly to include movies for children and a bar-b-que, sponsor shopping event, egg crate workshop, plumbing, building acrylic acclimation boxes or fish traps, making fish food from grocery store items and fish items, QT tank setup, building netting for the top of tanks, building LED lights, macro fuges, DIY sumps, live food propagation.

    Sponsor Shopping Event:

    Still gauging interest from this event. Right now we have about 12 people interested. We would need a deposit from members that plan to attend and would be non refundable.

    2. LMAR

    Right around the corner. We are ordering the raffle prizes in the next few weeks and will need on hands on deck for both days of this event. BODS are to arrive Sat Nov 5th at 11:00AM until 5PM and Sun Nov 6 at 9:00AM until 6:30PM. We will also need to have volunteers to help us for both days. Tim from last LMAR, Cesar, Larry, and Ada & Richard have all offered to help us. We should also buy the aquarium employees a $50 GC to Shipley’s and drop it off the Monday before the event.

    We are also looking into buying Polo Shirts for the BOD so they can be easily recognizable at large events. Zack motioned that we look into this and Rebecca second the motion. BOD voted unanimously to research this.
