The Host committee has added the following stipulations of nogambling and no paying at a discount and reselling (to ensure that the sales are funds generatedby addicts for addicts). Julie also noted that selling of tickets was limited to SubcommitteeChairs or AB members. It was mentioned that E&F Subcommittee could sell tickets to membersto ensure fiscal accountability and if those members don’t resell through the fellowship the E&FSubcommittee will purchase those tickets back. In this way, E&F would not compromise theintegrity of the fiscal accountability which is a tremendous concern based on the history of thisevent.Team Leaders: Julie mentioned that to get the task at hand done there would need to be teamleaders. It was also discussed and agreed to have seven fundraising to make the money and tohold additional fundraising to promote unity throughout the region.Canoe Trip: Julie went over the Canoe Trip and reviewed the prices for food.

E&F will usethose prices for the Canoe Trip on 10/1/2011.Julie asked for wiling members to assist and leave by 8:30 a.m. for the Canoe Trip to help set upthe food tables.

Complementary coffee, hot chocolateand marshmallows are provided. We do have a release of liability form to cover any medicalissues. Our cost would be $6.50 per adult and $3.50 per child. It was discussed to reserve twotractors and to provide a rain date. It was also discussed the possibility of a bake sale for thisevent. Discussion ensued surrounding the “mark-up” of the tickets surrounding the adult pricewhich was proposed as $15 with a $5 cost per child. At the end of the discussion it appeared thegeneral consensus was that there would be more children than adults on the hayride and thereforethe larger increase in revenue would not be as great as projected solely on adult ticket costs.There was a motion made:M/S/C “To sell hayride tickets of $15 per adult and $5 per child”.The AB President gave permission for the Host to sign this contract and Julie will present this tothe Host for review at the next Host meeting.Steelers vs. Browns Game: Chuck provided information on renting a bus for the Steelers vs.Browns game.
