Physical altercations: Discussed incidents of physical altercation and agreed that increased communal and club spirit can be fostered through team events and club social gatherings.

Ensenada Trip: Members present felt Ensenada trips are a wonderful opportunity to promote table tennis and camaraderie, but that we need to improve logistics of borders crossings

Need new member to fill treasure position: Board treasurer Bill Chang will be leaving in 2014 and we need someone to take his place. Anyone with the most basic skills involving quicken would be considered a suitable successor.

Equipment: Blue tables have proven to be a disaster. They do not fold /unfold easily and are frequently lopsided and uneven. We need to replace these with better tables, possibly Joola….Andre Scott our local Joola rep will be contacted.

Challenger Table: Implementing Challenger table concept proved unpractical. No enforcement procedure in place. Members rip off Challenger table placard attached to the side of challenger tables.

Professional Coaching: Talk to Barney and Christian and see if they are willing to offer pro coaching at the club. Currently nobody fills that capacity

Meeting Closed: Meeting Closed at 8:00pm: James motions, Bill 2nds.
