I'm sending on the Rion. His email was on our list. I suggested that maybe
it was going to a spam folder? I invited Larry last night. Thanks for
getting the minutes out so soon.

> us. We are insured. No other updates at this time.
> Treasury Report
> The Bike Swap cost about $500 and brought in about $500. Even after paying
> consignments and for insurance, the organization has approximately $7,500,
> not including sales of new donation.
> Accounting System
> Yaney and others interested in adding categories with numbered codes in
> Excel. Currently some entries in our computer have no discription or date
> of sale, or information that does not match receipt. Ken recommends getting
> a cash register which would track sales and receipts. Robert would like a
> locking drawer so that a shop manager working alone would not have to worry
> about guarding cash. Yaney will look into buying lock/locking drawer. Ken
> will look into pricing a cash register. Bobby will purchase more
> appropriate sales/donation receipts. At next meeting, we will have training
> for use of the computer software. Larry & Dean will work together to draft
> process for handling shop cash and accounting.

> purchasing committee and authorized to spend the shop budget, not to exceed
> $200 per purchase, on improvements to the shop. Larry recommended
> purchasing new recycling containers for metal.
> Outreach and Wrenching
> Shortage of volunteers means we need to do more outreach. Yaney proposed a
> flier for bike shops advertising need for volunteer mechanics. Flyers in
> bike shops, senior centers, etc. Bobby proposed that volunteer situation is
> critical enough that we should consider hiring someone to recruit, train,
> and follow through with volunteers. Rose, Bobby & Yaney (and also Shelley?)
> will be on committee to propose new plan.
> Waivers and Liability
> Ken and Rose expressed concern about people leaving on bikes that we had
> rebuilt. Dean proposed that we audit our waivers to make sure that the

> OSU Folk Thrift Store to supply leg bands and reflective bibs.
