Outdoor Adventure Club decision postponed

The Council of Clubs failed to meet quorum at its March 4 meeting and was unable to vote on a funds request from the Outdoor Adventure Club.

Only five of the council’s 10 voting members attended the meeting. Representatives from the American Water Works Association, French Club, Rachel Nice Health and Awareness Club, Table Tennis Club, and Veterans Club were absent.

The Outdoor Adventure Club is seeking funds for a one-day trip to Devil’s Elbow, Sea Lion Caves and Harbor Vista County Park on March 22. Twenty students are expected to participate.

Fencing Club representative Karl Knoch expressed concerns about the fund’s disbursement.

“Why can’t we write the rules down, so we know what we’re dealing with?” Knoch asked. This led to a discussion regarding written policy. The present members agreed to address the issue at their March 11 meeting.

Council of Clubs Chairman John Price said that the Religious Diversity Alliance had not yet been ratified.

Those present agreed that the council would host a spring fair on April 16. It is expected that the budget for the event will be somewhere between $2,000 and $3,000.

Price announced that the current balance in the council general fund is $8,894.07.

The representative of the newly formed Chess Club expressed concerns that she has been unable to find a teacher to act as adviser for the club. The club has not yet been ratified.
