Misc. - The board voted and decided on stemless wine glasses with “PUBS” on the front in either an old English font or the same font that is on the clubs shirts. These will be a gift for the Gold members but they will also be on sale. More details shortly. - Dagan received a letter from the IRS basically stating that PUBS does not qualify for the 501C3 status we applied for because we have paid dues, memberships, etc. The board wants to contest this and point out several other clubs that have 501C3 but also have the paid memberships and so on. Dagan volunteered to write up the letter to contest with the IRS. - There will be a new membership form everyone who joins will need to fill out once a year. We will also have a sign-in sheet at every meeting that everyone (member or not) will need to print and sign their name stating that they understand PUBS is not responsible for any trouble they may get into etc. - The board reviewed the by-laws and proposed to change a few things. David will propose these changes to the general meeting members and we will vote on approving these changes.
The meeting was adjourned at about 8:10 pm.
