11. The AGM Meeting May 7, 2016 had some issues that were left unresolved. Unresolved was the Election of Officers for 2016-2017. The existing elected board will remain in place. In question was the position of Club Owners being elected to the board this has been viewed as in conflict of Interest. The feeling of some of the owners is that this is not so stated in the by-laws

Motion: Create a Committee comprised of 3 Non board Members to:
1. To recommend to the Board and/or the AGM a position regarding the Club Owners participation on the Board of Directors
2. To recommend changes to the By-Laws if required
