The meeting was called to order @ 4 PM with the following Board members and Advisors present: Mark Prose, President; Jeff Hansen, Vice President; Russ Hardy, Treasurer; Dennis Briels, Secretary. Charlie Anderson, Monitor Co-ordinator, was absent. Advisors: Dan Carter, Ed Cheszek, Ron Gustafson, Ron Hilbert John Gordon and Scott Saxon present. Tom Marshall & Ed Valdez were absent.

The following Agenda items were discussed:

Russ Hardy gave the Finance update. Misc. Revenue of $718. Just about all of that is the HOA Reimbursement we received for the oscillating sander. Year to date income (or gross profit) $15,327.69. The budget for the entire year is $14,500. Therefore we are about $5,000 above what was expected for the year to date income. Expenses are running about $3,000 over anticipated, but there were costs incurred that will balance out over the year, ie: the multiple table saw blades, band saw blades previously discussed, etc. We had projected that by the end of 2022 we would have about $4,500 in the checking account, but it appears that we may be above that.

Russ mentioned that we should have some additional 'financial oversight'. Currently, he handles everything (with respect to) income & expenses. However, he feels that someone else should be involved also as ‘Auditor’ & ‘Assistant Treasurer'. Should he be absent for any length of time, someone else should be able to step in and handle the day to day financial functions of the Club. Until we find someone to volunteer on a regular basis, Ed Cheszek offered to step up to fill in in the interim.

The issues for Monitor scheduling, appears to have been resolved.

New business: The much needed Shop Managers cabinet plans have been completed. Mark Prose is ready to proceed with construction. It should be finished by the time you read this.

Mark mentioned that he has submitted a sketch to Robson for a curved driveway so that members can drive back to the roll up door to unload wood for their larger projects. It was accepted as an HOA budget item for 2023. Given the escalating construction costs, we will not know for a while whether-or-not this will happen.

Shifting the emptying of the dust collector drum to the afternoon shift was thought to be mistaken because 4 PM is the hottest part of the day.

Dan Carter brought up the repairs made on the Drill Press. Apparently, in effecting the original repairs, an internal part was damaged. The person felt responsible and did not want reimbursement for his error. However, it was decided that the Club should reimburse him for that expense anyway as it was in-good-faith that the error was made.

Dan also mentioned that the Chop Saw noise issue was that the blade was loose.

Mark Prose advised that the multiple blades that we ordered for the Saw Stop (that were on sale) are the thin kerf blades. Therefore, the riving knives that we have are 1/32" too wide. John Gordon will order new riving knives to conform to the new blades @ $17.50 each. The new thin kerf riving knives have been installed.

It was determined that the Club has no need for a color printer…

Finally, the CNC machine is again operational. The conversation of the X, Y & Z axis failures were addressed by those members that are familiar with the machine. WAY over the heads of the rest of the Club members.
