Bob Hutchinson will check with Heaven to obtain contact information for the 3-piece band that plays there on Thursdays.
Policy on participation in BFCA sponsored social events. It was necessary to establish this, as it will be reflected in the website design:
The activities sponsored by the BFCA are intended for participation by paying members
Having said that, we recognize that:
It is not practical to expect 100% enforcement. We cannot verify membership status for every event.
All members, including the Board can informally, and tactfully, ask “new people” if they are BFCA members and, if not, encourage them to join.
For limited capacity events (e.g. Tasters and Traders) priority needs to be given to members in good status.
Ashley to follow up with Barry on current membership and plans of the social committee. Done right after the meeting.

ALL Board Members: Please check the websites of other neighborhood associations. Provide specific examples to Brian indicating what you like and what you do not like in those websites. This will help Brian and his young assistant
