  • The board was requested to –
  • Please re-think the change in the score sheets to include back again the ability for a team to see how a table has scored across all 4 categories. Computers will have to be reformatted – remote program used no longer available, after long discussion and vote – the board voted on restoring the previous scoring program; this will be done when and only when it can be done remotely.
  • When there is a contest such as Pig on the Pond that has such a limited capacity for teams, I think it would be in the FBA’s best interest to waive the 150 mile rule and open that weekend up for another contest. The board voted no to this request.

No further business meeting adjourned at 8:53pm
