WE GET THEM APPROVED? >> I MOTIONED TO GET APPROVED.

>> SECOND. >> ALL IN FAVOR.

>> AYE. >> THOSE MINUTES HAVE BEEN

[Item 5]

SIGNED. >> THANK YOU.

>> OLD BUSINESS. THE BOTTOMS. RIGHT SIDE. THE BEST AND WORST THING IN THE WORLD (LAUGHING) THE BOTTOMS IS VERY SUCCESSFUL THIS YEAR. ALL COPIES -- ABOUT FIVE HOURS THEY SOLD $21.4 MILLION IN CARS. WHICH WAS THE JUDGMENT OF THE THREE OPTIONS, IT WAS NUMBER TWO AND $24 MILLION IN CARS BUT THEY HAD ANOTHER 25 CARS TO SELL. THE BRAGGING POINT IS THAT THEY SOLD THE TWO HIGHEST PRICED CARS AND THREE OF THE TOP 10 HIGHEST PRICE OF THE CARS. AND OUT OF THE TOP 10 CARS, THEY WERE TO HAVE MILLION DOLLARS.

A 1932 BUGATTI $147.1 MILLION. IF YOU GOT THAT KIND OF DISPOSABLE INCOME, THAT'S A

WONDERFUL THING (LAUGHING). >> THEY WERE PLEASE WITH THE OPTION. THEY MADE QUITE A BIT OF MONEY SO THAT'S A GOOD THING. WE DO HAVE THEM FOR

FOUR MORE YEARS UNDER CONTRACT. >> HOW MANY?

>> OR MORE. SO IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN THERE ON THE SAME SIDE AS THE CONCORDE NOW SO THAT'S A GOOD THING. AS FAR AS THE GOLF COURSE, WE DID -- WE DID IN FOOD AND BEVERAGE WE DID $3000 BETTER THAN LAST YEAR WHICH IS A NICE LITTLE WINDFALL TO HAVE. $2000 CAME FROM OUR CONCESSION STAND IN A THOUSAND OF IT CAME FROM AN ADDITIONAL FOOD AND BEVERAGE.

O, ALL IN ALL, IT WAS A GREAT EVENT. A LOT OF FUN. A LOT OF NICE PEOPLE. LOTS OF MONEY

CHANGED HANDS. >> WHAT WAS THE TOTAL, STEVE?

>> I DO NOT HAVE THAT OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. (LAUGHING) I KNOW THE BOTTOMS SIDE OF IT WAS $1900. OUR SIDE OF IT WAS OVER 9000. OVER $9000 IN SALES IN ABOUT FOUR AND HALF HOURS AND THE AVERAGE TRANSACTION IS $20. THIS WAS PRETTY MUCH NONSTOP.

SO. >> THE STAFF WAS REALLY CHASING

THEM DOWN THEY DID A GREAT JOB. >> THE STAFF WAS INCREDIBLE THIS YEAR. IN THE COMMENTS THAT WE GOT FROM CUSTOMERS ABOUT THE STAFF THIS YEAR, A COUPLE OF THE MILLIONAIRES CAME UP TO ME AND SAID EVERY YEAR WE COME HERE AND WE FIGURE IS THE SAME AS LAST YEAR EVERY YEAR YOU IMPROVE. WE DON'T THINK YOU CAN GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS YEAR SO NEXT YEAR THAT'S A CHALLENGE. IT'S A LOT OF FUN AND A LOT OF GOOD STUFF.

>> I WAS GOING TO SAVE THIS FOR THE UPDATE BUT I'LL DO IT NOW. THE DATE IS NOT ON HERE BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT FIXING WHOLE NUMBER THREE. THEY'RE VERIFYING THAT YOU WILL ROWLETT. CURRENTLY THERE ARE THREE GENERATORS OUT THERE THERE'S NO CONSENT TO GET THE THINGS OFF OF THEIR.

>> ARE PRETTY RESPONSIBLE WHEN THEY DO STUFF LIKE THAT. SO, THERE'S ONE CONCERN OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS THAT I'VE DONE THAT IS THAT THEY USED A DIFFERENT FLOORING IN THE MAIN AUCTION TENT THIS YEAR. IT SAT ON THE GRASS VERSUS A 4 TO 5 INCH GAP. SO THE GRASS LOOKS

[00:05:03]

LIKE IT GOT HEATED UP A LITTLE BIT MORE THIS YEAR. SEE THE RECOVERY PROCESS OF IT. IF IT DOESN'T RECOVER BOTTOMS ARE RESPONSIBLE SO IF WE HAVE TO RECYCLE WILL BE PAYING FOR THAT. I DO NOT PERCEIVE THAT HAPPENING. BUT JUST BY THE LOOKS OF IT NOW, I FORESEE YOU TELLING THEM NEXT YEAR THAT THEY CANNOT USE THAT FLOORING AGAIN. ONLY BECAUSE I THINK THE RECOVERY WILL BE A WEEK OR TWO LONGER THAT THEY HAVE THAT OUT THERE. BUT TIME WILL TELL AND ALL OF THAT. THEY USED A DIFFERENT FLOORING SO IT'S NOT AS GOOD OF A FLOORING.

HIS IS THE SAME FLOORING THAT THEY USE THE VERY FIRST YEAR THEY WERE HERE. ANDY DID IT TO CUT SOME COSTS. IT COULD CAUSE THEM OR NO. LIKE I SAID, TIME WILL TELL.

O THAT'S WHY DAVID IS NOT HERE TODAY.

>> ALL RIGHT. HOW MANY ATTENDEES DO THEY HAVE?

>> THIS YEAR, THE BREAKFAST ON THURSDAY MORNING SO JUST ABOUT 280 PEOPLE THERE EMISSIONS WAS CLOSE TO 400 THIS YEAR. ACTIVE BIDDERS WAS ABOUT 30 PERCENT MORE THAN IN THE PAST YEARS THE COLLECTION OF COURSE IS PROBABLY THE BEST COLLECTION I'VE EVER SEEN AT AN AUCTION BECAUSE IT COVERED EVERY GENRE. 1800S TO THE EARLY 1900S FROM STAINED TO ELECTRIC TO WORLD WAR II VEHICLES, TWO HOT RODS, TO RACECARS, TO EVERYDAY CARS, THE MIX WAS GREAT AND IT

ATTRACTED A LOT OF PEOPLE. >> SIGNS AND POSTERS SEND --

>> YEAH. >> IT WAS AN EXTENSIVE -- WHAT SO WHAT IS THE EXACT -- THERE IS BREAKFAST ON THURSDAY. IS THERE ANYTHING BEFORE THAT?

>> WEDNESDAY NIGHT THERE'S A GALA.

>> A GALA. OKAY. >> WHICH ALL DAY WEDNESDAY FROM -- FROM 9 O'CLOCK TO 4 O'CLOCK IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC. AT 4 O'CLOCK WE KICK EVERYBODY OUT.

AT 5 O'CLOCK, IT'S INVITATION-ONLY GALA AND IF ANY OF YOU BOARD MEMBERS WOULD LIKE TO COME, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LET ME KNOW AND I CAN PUT YOU ON THE GUEST LIST BECAUSE YOUR ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS. ND BASICALLY, EVERYBODY WALKS AROUND LOOKING AT CARS. IT'S A FREE APPETIZERS. FREE BEER AND WINE. ND SO, IT'S REALLY -- IS IT QUITE AN EVENT. YOU GET HUNDRED HUNDRED 50 PEOPLE THERE LOOKING AT CARS. IT'S GREAT.

HE DIDN'T SELL ANYTHING BUT HE WAS THERE.

>> WHO IS HE? >> CHASING CLASSIC CARS.

>> RIGHT. >> AND BILLY CASPER SIGNED UP.

BILL -- BOB MORRISON IS ONE OF THE FOUNDING PARTNERS OF BILLY CASTOR GOLF. BOUGHT A CAR BOTTOMS THREE YEARS AGO. AND COMPLETELY RESTORED IT AND SHOWED IT AT THE CONCORDE AND ONE BEST IN CLASS. AND THE NAME OF THE CAR THAT NOBODY WILL KNOW IS GOD'S WILL.

GODSAL. NOBODY KNOWS THAT CAR BECAUSE WAS ONLY ONE MANUFACTURER.

>> WOW. >> (LAUGHING).

>> BUT IT'S JUST AN EXQUISITE CAR. IT'S SO NEAT AND IT WAS GREAT TO SEE HIM WHEN BEST IN CLASS. NOW WE WILL PROBABLY SELL IT SINCE HE WON THE AWARD.

>> (LAUGHING). >> WHAT HAPPENS THURSDAY? IS

THERE A PRACTICE? >> THURSDAY MORNING THERE'S A BREAKFAST FOR EVERYBODY THAT'S A REGISTERED BIDDER.

>> HOW MUCH TO BID? >> YOU PAY HUNDRED DOLLARS.

AND THEN YOU HAVE TO SHOW A WAD WITH A LOT OF ZEROS.

>> OKAY. >> ALL RIGHT.

>> ALSOSINCE WE ARE ON ALL BUSINESS WILL BRING UP THE DRIVING RANGE.

>> YEAH. >> AS WE SPEAK, THE CITY WATER DEPARTMENT IS OUT THERE WITH AN ENGINEER FIGURING OUT THE DRAINAGE TO SEE WHAT THE PROCESS HAS TO BE. HOPEFULLY, I'LL HAVE RESOLUTION FOR THAT BY THE END OF THIS WEEK FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK AS TO WHAT NEEDS TO GET DONE IN THE SCOPE OF WORK TO DO IT.

RIDAY, -- LAST MONDAY -- WHAT'S TODAY? WEDNESDAY. YEAH. MONDAY, WE HAD A MEETING WITH -- WITH A GOLF COURSE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY TO LAY OUT WHAT WE WANTED TO DO TO ASK HIM

[00:10:03]

IF IT WAS FEASIBLE. HE'LL BE PUTTING TOGETHER A SCOPE OF WORK SO WE CAN PUT A BID. IT'S A GOLF COURSE THAT BILLY CASPER USES ALL THE TIME SO THAT'S WHY WE FELT WE COULD GET AN HONEST SCOPE OF WORK TO PUT OUT TO BID AND WHAT NEEDS TO GET DONE. AND FRIDAY, WE HAVE A MEETING WITH GILLETTE AND ASSOCIATES TO DO THE DRAWINGS FOR THE COVERED BASE THEMSELVES.

O, THE BALL IS ROLLING. >> WHEN THOSE BIDS COME BACK,

THEY COME TO YOU? >> THEY WILL COME TO THE CITY.

BUT I WILL BE INVOLVED IN THE PICKING PROCESS, YES.

>> OKAY. >> MYSELF AND THE GUYS ABOVE ME

AND BILLY CASPER. >> OKAY.

>> WE ARE RUNNING WITH IT. >> EXCELLENT.

>> GILLETTE COMPANY IS WHAT? >> GILLETTE AND ASSOCIATES IS AN ENGINEERING FIRM THAT THE CITY USES ALL THE TIME.

>> OKAY. >> WE FIGURED THAT WAS THE BEST WAY TO GO BECAUSE THEY ARE ALREADY -- THEY ARE ALREADY CONTRACTED WITH THE CITY. WE DON'T HAVE TO DO ALL THE EXTRA PAPERWORK.

>> AND YOU SAID THE ENGINEER THAT -- IS LOOKING INTO DRAINAGE IS ALSO OUT OF STATE

OR OUT OF TOWN? >> IT WAS HIRED BY STORM WATER.

STORM WATER IS TAKING CARE OF THE DRAINAGE.

>> OKAY. >> THEY ARE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW. WHEN YOU GO BACK THE GOLF DRIVING AREAS WILL BE CLOSED BECAUSE THERE DOING WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. THEY WILL BE CLOSE THE MAJORITY OF THE DAY.

[Item 6]

>> OKAY. WOULD YOU LIKE TO REVIEW THE FINANCIALS UNDER NEW BUSINESS.

>> SURE. WHY NOT? >> FEBRUARY WAS SHAPING UP TO BE A WONDERFUL MONTH. IN TAKING A LOOK AT THE DAYS INN IT, AND WE HAD THREE DAYS WHERE WE DID ZERO OUTS. IN THREE MORE DAYS WHAT WE DID UNDER 20 -- BUT AGAIN, WE STILL CRESTED THE 4000 ROUND MARK OFF 400 FROM LAST YEAR. 600 YEAR BEFORE THAT AN 800 YEAR BEFORE THAT. SO BOTH OF THOSE FEBRUARY'S HAD SOME NO -- AT ALL. BUT, WHEN WE TAKE THAT INTO ACCOUNT IT'S PRETTY MUCH WHAT WAS. THE GOOD NEWS IS ON THE FINANCIAL STATEMENT, THE PROFIT AND LOSS STATEMENT, -- WE SAVED AS WE WERE GOING THE PROJECTED BUDGET. I BELIEVE WOULD BE LIKE SEVEN OR $8000. I'M NOT SURE.

>> IT'S DOWN BECAUSE OF THE SAME REASON. THE -- WHAT REALLY HELPED US IN THAT BECAUSE WE DIDN'T MISS IT BY THAT MUCH IS THAT WE ACTUALLY SOLD SOME MEMBERS FROM OTHER GOLF COURSES IN THE AREA THAT SIGNED UP. SO I THOUGHT THAT WAS A WINDFALL.

>> MARCH LOOKING GOOD? >> MARCH LOOKS GOOD. YES. AND WHAT IF I SAY THAT IT WILL START TO RAIN TOMORROW.

>> A REALLY GOOD WEEK. >> SO FOOD AND BEVERAGE FELLOW THOUSAND DOLLARS SHORT OF LAST YEAR WHICH WAS INCREDIBLE WE HAD THE RAIN DAYS INN ZERO OUT-OF-COURT SALES. SO TO MISS BY ONLY THOUSAND DOLLAR WE BEAT THE BUDGET BY THOUSAND DOLLARS.

SO CHRISTIE DID HER JOB AND DID HER JOB WELL. THEY PUT ON RECORD CONGRATULATIONS, KRISTI FOR WINNING FOOD AND BEVERAGE OPERATION FOR WINNING CASTOR GOLF THIS YEAR. IT WAS A HUGE

AWARD AND WELL DESERVED. >> THAT'S GREAT.

>> THAT WAS HOW MANY? WHAT EVERY 143 GOLF OPERATION?

>> YES. AND THAT WE -- I WAS TOLD THERE'S -- THERE'S TWO OR THREE MAIN REASONS WHY SHE ONE.

ONE IS WE GOT BOTTOMS TO COMMIT FOR FOUR MORE YEARS. THAT $60,000 YEAR RATE THERE THAT HELPS US IMMENSELY. SHE RUNS A TIGHT SHIP AND THAT SAVES US A LOT OF MONEY. ALL OF THE EMPLOYEES ARE PHENOMENAL AND THE REASON WHY I THINK SHE DESERVED IT IS PRIOR TO HER

[00:15:06]

DOING THE JOB FOR COST OF GOODS -- OUR COST OF GOODS AND FOOD AND BEVERAGE WAS REALLY HIGH, REALLY LOW. REALLY HIGH, REALLY LOW. EVERY MONTH. IT WAS JUST LIKE -- SINCE SHE'S TAKING IT OVER ITS FLATLINED 32 PERCENT. SHE'S ACTUALLY MADE MONEY EVERY SINGLE YEAR FOR THE CITY. LAST YEAR WAS SIX FIGURES. WHICH IS PHENOMENAL SINCE PRIOR TO -- PRIOR TO ME GETTING HERE, THEY HAD NEVER MADE MONEY ON FOOD AND BEVERAGE. THEY HAD LOST MONEY EVERY YEAR. WHEN I GOT HERE THE FOOD DID -- WE WERE MAKING A LITTLE BIT MORE AND SHE TOOK OVER AND WILL WRITE OUT. SHE'S DOING A PHENOMENAL JOB.

>> HOW DID -- TO GET AWAY FROM THE WAVE, DID SHE JUST SPENT MORE TIME ON IT.

>> YOU WATCH WHAT YOU ORDER YOU CONSISTENTLY UPDATE THE PRICES OF WHICH BY WHERE AS IN PREVIOUS MANAGERS NEVER DID THAT. WHATEVER WAS IN THE SYSTEM THEY LEFT IT IN THE SYSTEM. AND YOU GET ACCURATE INVENTORY ACCOUNTS. THAT'S HOW YOU GET YOUR COST UNDER CONTROL. YOU CONTROL WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL. THAT'S HOW YOU KEEP YOUR COST OR GOODS IN LINE. BUT SHE -- THIS IS FUNNY. WHEN SHE FIRST TOOK OVER SHE GOES, SO HOW DO I GET MY COST OF GOODS UP TO DATE? I TOLD HER THOSE THREE THINGS SHE SAID WHY HAS IT BEEN DONE LIKE THAT BEFORE? I SAID WELL, I GUESS THEY WERE LAZY? I DON'T KNOW. I KEPT HARPING ON THEM TO GET IT DONE AND THEY NEVER DID.

>> SHE GOES, SO, HOW DO I MAKE SURE THAT I SELL IT FOR THAT COST OF GOODS. EASY, WHATEVER YOU PAY FOR IT MULTIPLY BY THREE (LAUGHING) SHE GOES REALLY? THAT'S ALL? I SAID THAT'S ALL? SO SHE JUST RAN WITH IT. SHE'S DOING A PHENOMENAL JOB. IN TOTAL REVENUE THIS LAST YEAR BY $7000 IN MISSED BY THE SAME AMOUNT, BUT WE SAVED A LOT MORE THAN THAT. SO WE WERE PROFITABLE FOR THE MONTH WHICH IS NICE. I'M ANXIOUS FOR THE FINANCIALS TO COME OUT BECAUSE THEY SHOULD BE VERY GOOD.

>> EXCELLENT. >> DID I SEE SOME PAINTING OR

WORK ON THE CLUBHOUSE? >> THERE WILL BE WORK BEING DONE ON THE CLUBHOUSE. THE COMMISSION APPROVED THE BUDGET TRANSFER.

>> I THOUGHT I THOUGHT -- SAW SOMETHING.

>> WE HAD A WALL OF TERMITES THAT HAD TO BE REPLACED.

>> LAST WEEK THEY WERE DOING THE TRIM AROUND SOME OF THE WINDOWS.

>> OKAY. >> TERMITES? WHERE WERE THEY

AT? >> IN THE ELECTRICAL ROOM.

>> YOU WOULD NOT HAVE SEEN IT. >> I WAS THERE YESTERDAY IN THE

RESTROOMS ARE OUT OF ORDER. >> I TRIED TO PLUNGE IT THIS MORNING COULD GET IT. I'VE GOT TO GET SOMEBODY ELSE TO TAKE CARE OF IT.

>> OKAY. JUST CURIOUS. >> BLAKE, CAN YOU GIVE US AN

[Item 7]

UPDATE ON THE GOLF ASSOCIATION?

>> WE HAD A TOURNAMENT. AND (LAUGHING).

>> DID YOU GET THE MONEY? >> NO. NOT YET. I'VE GOT TO MEET WITH STEVE. I THINK I'VE GOT TO PUT 30 MORE DOLLARS IN. I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

T WAS A PRETTY GOOD TOURNAMENT. QUITE HONESTLY, NOBODY REALLY SAID ANYTHING.

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SLIGHTED AND I COMPLETELY FORGOT WHEN I SENT IT OUT. SO YOU WERE GOING TO BE COMPETING WITH RED DOTS I WOULD'VE BEEN COMPETING AS COOL GUYS.

S IT TURNED OUT, IT WAS 12 IN ESCROW. SO THE MONEY REALLY WASN'T THAT OFF. YOU KNOW, WE STILL ONE MAYBE WE WOULD HAVE ONE MORE. NOBODY SAID ANYTHING. AND THAT'S -- THAT'S, TO BECOME IS WHY YOU NEED AN ASSISTANT. I'M RELYING MORE ON AIM A BECAUSE YOU TEND TO MAKE MISTAKES IF YOU'RE THE ONLY PERSON. JOHN USED TO WATCH OVER ME. IT WAS GOOD BECAUSE HE WOULD JUST ASK ME QUESTIONS AND I WOULD GO OH, I FORGOT. OR NO I DIDN'T -- SO -- BUT NEXT MONTH IS OUR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP TODAY TOURNAMENT. SO REAL GOLF BUT TODAY'S GOLF.

I KNOW MY BACK FEELS AFTER PLAYING 18 HOLES. THAT WILL BE INTERESTING.

>> THERE'S A MEETING COMING UP ON APRIL -- APRIL 1.

>> A COUPLE BYLAW CHANGES ARE PROPOSED, MAJOR ONES.

>> WHICH ARE KEY. >> TAKE AWAY ANYTHING ABOUT AGE REGARDING THE BOXES AND TO ACCEPT ELECTRONIC VOTING.

[00:20:07]

>> EMAIL, RIGHT? >> YES. I TALKED TO BRYCE ABOUT THAT THE OTHER DAY HE MENTIONED -- I PLAYED WITH EMILY TOURNAMENT. HE SAID THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH ELECTRONIC VOTING IS THAT IT'S A PUBLIC VOTE. AS OPPOSED TO A PRIVATE BOAT. I DON'T KNOW ANY BOATS WE'VE TAKEN WITH THE BOARD AND USUALLY IS A SHOW OF HANDS, ISN'T IT? SO THAT'S PUBLIC. SO I DON'T SEE WHERE AN EMAIL VOTING IS -- IT PROBABLY WOULD ONLY BE THE PRESIDENT IN THE ELECTION CHAIRMAN THAT WOULD GET IT.

>> PARTING? >> IS LESS PUBLIC BECAUSE THE WAY IT HAS DONE PREVIOUSLY IS YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW THE GUY NEXT HE WAS VOTING BECAUSE THEY DID IT BY HAND. THIS WAY, IF YOU DO IT ALL BY EMAIL.

>> IT WOULD BE -- IT'S NOT ALL. >> I THINK THAT'S THE PROPOSAL IS TO ALLOW THE ELECTRONIC VOTING. I HAVEN'T BEEN INVOLVED IN MANY VOTES IN OUR MEETING. SO THAT'S APRIL 1ST. I DON'T -- I DO NOT THINK PRICES DOING ANYTHING TO PUSH IT. I HAVE A LOT OF MATERIAL BECAUSE I'VE BEEN ON THIS FOR THREE OR FOUR YEARS AND I CONTINUED FORWARD TO 2011 WHEN PGA CAME OUT AND PLAY IT FORWARD. GET ON THE RIGHT TEE BOXES. I'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF INFORMATION, BUT PRICE SAID HE'S NOT GOING TO VOTE FOR.

AND I JUST SHOOK MY HEAD AND I SAID REALLY PRICE? WOW.

>> THAT WILL DEPEND ON WHAT THE VOTE IS AT THE MEETING.

>> CORRECT. BUT I'M WONDERING WHETHER THERE SHOULD BE SOME EFFORT FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT -- I'M VERY MUCH IN FAVOR OF. SO, NOT A LOT OF DIRECTION FOR PRICE.

>> WILL TAKE IT BACK TO THE HOUSE --

>> WELL THAT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN. THAT NEEDS TO BE COORDINATED AND I HAVEN'T SAID ANYTHING OUT YET. I'M DEBATING. BUT AGAIN, I DON'T KNOW WHO IS FOR IT AND WHO IS

NOT, SO. >> THAT'S IRRELEVANT.

>> YOU KNOW WHO'S FOR. >> IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY

DIFFERENCE. >> IN MY OPINION, WHAT SHOULD BE DONE IS TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING TO BE DECIDED, NOT TO BE PUSHING

THROUGH AN EMAIL. >> WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE A

PUBLIC COMMENT. >> OKAY. YOU'RE SAYING NOT LOBBY, JUST MAKE SURE EVERYBODY IS AWARE.

>> JOHN BURKE,, FORMER PAST PRESIDENT FOR TWO YEARS OF THE GOLF ASSOCIATION. IT'S MY BELIEF THAT SHOULD BE PUSHED TO GET PEOPLE TO COME TO THE MEETING, TO MAKE THESE DECISIONS, BUT NOT FOR ANYBODY TO MAKE A DECISION ON THEIR OWN. IT SHOULD BE -- THERE SHOULD BE DISCUSSION AT THE MEETING FOR AND AGAINST AND PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO VOICE THEIR OPINIONS AT THAT TIME, BUT I DON'T THINK THAT YOU SHOULD BE PUSHING AN AGENDA THROUGH THE EMAILS THAT ARE SENT OUT, NEITHER SHOULD THE CURRENT PRESIDENT, IN MY

OPINION. >> WHAT WELL I WILL DO IS -- THERE WAS A LOT OF VOICES HEARD IN THE LAST MEETING AND I'LL ENCOURAGE PRICE TO SET -- SENT AN UPDATE OUT TO MAKE EVERYONE AWARE OF THE MEETING AND MAKE SURE THAT IT'S ON THE AGENDA.

>> MAKE SURE THAT THE ITEM ON THE AGENDA.

>> THE TWO BIG ITEMS BECAUSE THOSE ARE TWO BIG ITEMS THAT ARE GOING TO CHANGE A LOT OF

THINGS. THANK YOU. >> OKAY. THANKS. ANYTHING

ELSE ON THE GOLF ASSOCIATION? >> THERE MIGHT BE A MOTION COMING SOON TO RAISE THE DUES TO OFFSET THE FOUR DOLLAR CHARGE FROM FSG A. I DON'T THINK THAT'S ON THE AGENDA. I KNOW THERE'S BEEN SOME TALK BACK AND FORTH ABOUT RAISING IT

TO $65. >> RIGHT. NEXT YEAR I BELIEVE.

>> RIGHT. NOT AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE.

>> NO. SO NOW IT PROBABLY GO TO OCTOBER.

>> ONLY TO COVER THE GM PRICE? >> THAT WILL BE IN THE BYLAWS THAT WOULD BE AN EXECUTIVE DECISION FOR BOTH THE MEMBERS. -- A VOTE FOR THE MEMBERS.

>> MY BYLAWS AROUND THE CAR I DID NOT BRING THEM IN TODAY. TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, IT DOES NOT SPECIFY WHAT THE ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP IS. SO IT'S NOT REALLY A BYLAW DECISION.

SO BECAUSE OF THAT, COULD BE AN EXECUTIVE BOARD DECISION, IN MY OPINION BUT I'M NOT A LAWYER.

>> WELL, WE ARE MISSING WOMAN'S GOLF ASSOCIATION REPORT. SO WILL GO TO MARKETING.

[Item 9]

[00:25:05]

>> ALL RIGHT. FIRST AND SECOND ONE -- ARE WORKING WELL. IT'S THE FIRST ONE THAT I WANT TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO. MARCH 28 WERE HAVING A BEYOND BADGES GOLF TOURNAMENT. TO SUPPORT THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND AND THE POLICE FOUNDATION. SO WE WOULD REALLY LIKE TO HAVE THE MEN'S AND WOMEN'S CLUBS PARTICIPATE IN THIS. ALL THE MONEY IS GOING TO THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND.

CHECKS WILL BE MADE OUT TO THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND.

>> FERNANDINA BEACH POLICE ASSOCIATION.

>> YOU HAVE THE TAX WRITE OFF RIGHT THERE.

>> IS THAT THE GROUP YOU'RE AFFILIATED WITH.

>> YES. >> IN THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD

AS WELL. >> WHAT WILL BE DOING, WE WILL BE CURING TO FIRST RESPONDERS AND --

>> WILL BE PLAYING WITH A POLICEMAN OR FIREMAN. SO WE WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOU GUYS PUSHING THIS FOR US. THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC. IT'S SCHEDULED TO GO OUT FRIDAY WEDNESDAY -- WEDNESDAY. IT'S POSTED IN THE GOLF SHOP IN THE BULLETIN BOARD IN THE MEN'S AND

LADIES ROOM. >> 9 AM SHOTGUN.

>> YES. >> THIS IS A FIRST.

>> THIS IS A FIRST. THEY DO THE BEYOND THE BADGES SOFTBALL AND BASKETBALL. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE'VE DONE A GOLF TOURNAMENT. I THINK IT'S GREAT BECAUSE THE OTHER TWO EVENTS THE GENERAL PUBLIC COULD ONLY WATCH IN HERE THEY CAN PARTICIPATE IN PLAY WITH THE

FIRST RESPONDER. >> AND THE POLICE AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT -- HAVE TALKED TO FIREMAN AND THE POLICEMAN, THEY'RE EXCITED ABOUT THIS.

>> I HAVE PLAYERS FROM THE NASSAU COUNTY FIRE AND POLICE DEPARTMENT.

>> DO THEY PAY? >> THE FIRST RESPONDERS TO PAY ANYTHING. I AM PAYING FOR THEM. THAT'S MY CONTRIBUTION IS TO COVER ALL THEIR COSTS.

>> AND THOSE CHECKS ARE MADE OUT TO THE FERNANDINA POLICE FOUNDATION. THEY ARE A 501(C)(3). SO THOSE ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTIONS. OR CAN BE.

>> FERNANDINA POLICE FOUNDATION ?

>> FERNANDINA BEACH POLICE FOUNDATION.

>> OKAY. SO IF YOUR GROUP CAN SEND OUT AN EMAIL I CAN GET YOU A COPY OF THIS.

>> OKAY. I WILL SEND IT OUT. >> I KNOW YOU HAVE GOTTEN A FEW

HOLES SPONSORED. >> NOT YET. I'M HOPING.

>> YOU MIGHT WANT TO TALK TO PRICE ABOUT HIM CHANGING THE MIXER OR CANCELING THE MIXER NOT THAT EVERYBODY IS GOING TO BE FOR THAT,

>> PARTING HE. >> I MEAN I'M JUST SAYING.

>> I'M HOPEFUL AS LONG AS WE STEP UP AND BE A TITLE SPONSOR THAT THEY HAD A BUSY WEEK ALSO BUT YEAH. I REALLY APPRECIATE PARTICIPATION.

>> WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT ROSS ABOUT THE MIXER, RIGHT. WE CAN DO THAT.

>> YEAH. HE MIGHT -- HE MIGHT SUPPORT THIS.

>> PRICE DOES AROUND THE MIXER. >> NO.

>> I WOULD HOPE THAT WE COULD -- ARE YOU GOING TO -- I'M GOING TO BE OVER THERE THIS

AFTERNOON AND TALK TO THEM. >> BECAUSE IF YOU DID THAT, THAT THOSE GUYS WILL SAY IT'S A GREAT CAUSE.

>> YEAH. IT IS. WE STARTED OUT A FEW YEARS AGO GIVING TO $1000 SCHOLARSHIPS TO THE SENIORS. THE LAST TWO YEARS -- IT'S GOING TO BE THREE. AND THEY ARE EXPANDING THE SCHOLARSHIP NOW TO INCLUDE TRADE SCHOOLS AND ALSO IF SOMEBODY IS INTERESTED IN THE POLICE ACADEMY OR THE FIRE ACADEMY, YOUNG FOLKS I WOULD WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN EITHER THE FIREFIGHTERS OR POLICE IT WOULD BE AN OPPORTUNITY THERETO. AND THEY'VE DONE A GREAT JOB OF RAISING MONEY THEMSELVES IN SELLING TICKETS IN ONE THING AND ANOTHER. BUT IT'S WORKING WELL SO. ANYTHING ELSE?

[Items 11 & 12]

[00:30:12]

>> ANY OTHER PUBLIC COMMENTS? >> YOU WOULD THINK I WOULD NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY EXTRA, BUT.

>> JOHN BURKE PAST PRESIDENTS. TWO THINGS, ONE, I UNDERSTAND THE TOURNAMENT ON SATURDAY, THERE WAS AN INCIDENT WITH THE DOG.

>> YES. >> SANDERS SEEMS THAT THERE IS MORE AND MORE DOGS -- PEOPLE ARE WALKING THEIR DOGS ON THE COURSE I WOULD SAY TYPICALLY, ONCE EVERY THREE TIMES THAT PLAN, YOU PROBABLY SEE SOMEBODY WALKING HER DOG IN THE COURSE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE DO ABOUT THAT OTHER WE SEE THEM WE ASKED THEM TO LEAVE.

>> YES. >> I WAS INVOLVED IN THAT INCIDENT JIM ENDED UP QUITTING AFTER THE SEVENTH HOME AND BLAMED IT ON THE DOG. HE WAS

PLAYING TERRIBLE. (LAUGHING). >> IN THIS INSTANCE, THE DOG KEPT PICKING UP THE BALLS AND CARRYING THEM OFF, RIGHT.

>> YES. JIM HAD TO PUT ANOTHER BALL DOWN.

>> NOT GOOD. THE ONLY OTHER THING THAT I HAD THAT I WAS JUST CURIOUS WE DID -- OR ATTEMPTED TO GET PORTIA TO COME TO FERNANDINA GOLF COURSE. AND IT WENT TO AMELIA RIVER.

AMELIA RIVER SHUT DOWN ALL THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. I'M JUST WONDERING -- AND YOU MAY NOTICE AND IT MAY NOT BE FOR PUBLIC COMMENT, DID WE OR DO WE GO AFTER TO FIND OUT WHY WE LOST IT SO THAT WE COULD COME IN THE FUTURE, TRY TO ENTICE THEM? I THINK YOU HAD SAID THAT IF WE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN WE WOULD HAVE HAD TO SHUT DOWN NINE OF THE HOLES, I THINK, FOR ONE DAY,

RIGHT? >> AMELIA RIVER WAS SHUT DOWN

VIRTUAL DAYS. >> WE MEAN PORTIA?

>> THEY HAVE AN EVENT DURING THAT WEEKEND.

>> SO THEY CLOSE THE COURSE AND THEY HAD ALL THE PORSCHES AT THE AMELIA RIVER AND YOU CAN HEAR IT WHENEVER YOU'RE PLAYING AT FERNANDINA.

>> IT SEEMS LIKE POLITICKING IS ALREADY IN PLACE.

>> OKAY. >> FOR NEXT YEAR.

>> THANK YOU. >> BECAUSE THEY -- THE ORIGINAL PLAN WAS TO HAVE 300 SHOW PORSCHES AND 150 TO 200 JUDGING PORSCHES. THEY HAD 200 ALTOGETHER. BECAUSE THAT'S ALL THE SPACE THEY HAD.

>> SO CAN YOU HANDLE TO EVENTS LIKE THAT?

>> YES. >> CAN YOU DO IT ON ONE INTO OR

SOMETHING SHUT DOWN. >> RIGHT?

>> IT WOULD BE ONE, TWO AND NINE W.

>> THAT'S WHAT I FIGURED. >> IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.

>> FOOD AND BEVERAGE IS SIMPLE BECAUSE THEY DON'T -- THE CLUB, ITSELF, DOES NOT HAVE ANY FOOD AND BEVERAGE PER SE, BUT WE HAVE THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE RIGHTS. SO IT WOULD JUST BE A MATTER OF TWO OR THREE BEVERAGE AND/OR FOOD STATIONS OUT THERE FOR THE PUBLIC TO PURCHASE. IT

WOULD BE ACTUALLY -- >> WOULD YOU DO THAT THE SAME

TIME? >> IT'S THE DAY AFTER BOTTOMS.

IT HAPPENS ON FRIDAY. >> OKAY. I THOUGHT I WAS TIRED

THIS YEAR. >> (LAUGHING).

>> THANK YOU FOR THE EXPLANATION. A MARTY WORKING IN A PARTY MADE CONNECTIONS

BEYOND THE PORSCHE CLUB. >> HOW SUCCESSFUL WAS IT? WHAT

THE EVENT? I DON'T KNOW. >> WE HAD FEWER CARS.

>> THEY HAD LESS STAFFING. >> BUT YOU DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S BECAUSE OF THE VENUE OR SOME OTHER.

>> AT ONE POINT IN TIME, I WAS SENT AN EMAIL ASKING IF THEY COULD PARK THE TRUCKS IN OUR PARKING LOT TO OFFLOAD THE CARS BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T GET THE TRUCKS IN OVER THERE AND I JUST LAUGHED AND SAID (LAUGHING) ALL RIGHT. ANYTHING ELSE? OKAY.
