Committee Meeting Minutes
« on: October 25, 2013, 18:46:54 »
In the interest of good transparency within the club, the minutes of each committee meeting will be posted in this thread. At the end of each meeting, the minutes of the previous meeting will be posted. The aim of this record is to keep club members updated on the decisions that are being made on their behalf and to allow club members the opportunity to give feedback if they feel it is necessary. If anyone would like to give feedback, I would ask that you PM a committee member and we will take your feedback on board and incorporate it into decisions made at future committee meetings.

Committee Meeting 24/10/13


Gear Talk
- Scheduled for Tuesday 12th November at 6.30pm in Great Outdoors, Watersports department.

- Have the bus for €1000, but try to get a further discount.
- Contact Sarah (Trinity) to finalise their accommodation. We have a floor booked for UCD. Possibility of offering our oldies any free rooms in the hostel if Trinity decide not to book out a floor.
- Book the nightclub for the Saturday night and ask about concessions.
- Decided that it was unlikely to get a river done on the Sunday due to daylight hours and distance to a suitable river. If a trailer puller and instructors are available, try to get more surf done on the Sunday before heading back to Dublin.

Smaller playboat for the pool

First Aid Kit
- Aoife is taking the First Aid kit to re-stock it. The club will reimburse her for any costs required.

DCPL Polo Boat
- Diarmuid is going to bring over the last polo boat before the next match so that footrests can be installed prior to the match.
- a combination lock will be put on the boats and the combination will be changed after each match.
- decide on a suitable formula for remembering the combination.

Training and Development

Slalom Day
- Steven is getting in contact with Aisling Conlan to enquire about suitable instructors for a slalom training day.
- Sunday would be the best day to do it.

RSR2 and L3 Assessments

Emergency Grant
- enquire with Suzanne Bailey about the best way to apply for the emergency grant for more safety equipment for the club (ie. helmets, BAs, paddles)

Payment for pool boats

Reduced Cost for Committee Members
- re-assess the accounts before Lehinch to see if a trial-run discount could be applied for the weekend. Then re-assess the accounts after the weekend away.

Club Merchandise

- Good quality club hoodies (even if they cost a little extra) rather than cheaper quality.
- Helena is going to look into companies and designs.

Saturday Trips

Numbers for the next Saturday trip (26/10/13) are low
