First Board Meeting Done

Today was the SFSFC Board of Directors meeting, which is very different from the CWSFA meeting next weekend. SFSFC's meeting was at the Centerville Train Station, around 800 meters or so from my house, and I walked down there with the corporate materials (minutes books, conference telephone) on a luggage cart. Next weekend's meeting is in Calgary.

Besides eight of the eleven SFSFC directors, Dan Lopez and cherylmorgan attended. The meeting room we found in the train station is just about the right size for us, has a telephone line we can use for a dial-in conference call (two directors had to dial in; one wasn't able to participate at all and sent a proxy), and we can have the room if we buy $100 worth of catering (that is, coffee, tea, and cookies) from the Depot Cafe. Considering that we've paid $200 for a hotel conference room with no catering at all, this is a very good deal.

The meeting over, five of us (David Gallaher, David W. Clark, jbriggs, cherylmorgan and I) went to a nearby Afghan restaurant, where we were joined a bit later by dinogrl. After a long late lunch, we went our separate ways, and Cheryl and I trundled the SFSFC corporate box back to my apartment. Cheryl and I had some errands to run and groceries to buy

Errands done and returned home, we watched the New Zealand vs. Ireland rugby match we downloaded from MediaZone. Collapse )

One disadvantage of watching these downloaded games is that it uses my laptop computer -- I can't work on things while watching the game. So writing up the minutes of today's meeting will have to wait. And we have more errands to do tomorrow. Except that both of us are showing signs of coming down with colds. This is not good when one plans to fly to Calgary next week.
