JT advised the Board to pay attention to the heating and cooling quote (see p. 113). The Website Com. was removed from the monthly meetings schedule. The Transition Com still meets, but date of next meeting is not yet set.
Reggae on the River wrap-up: We took in $17.5K. Not enough volunteers; Press tent vs. Coffee booth (fee $2K). About a dozen of 120 Programmers worked the Press Tent; interviews will be on the video-feed next year. Coffee vs Volunteer coordinator. Location of the coffee booth was horrible. Do we have the market on all coffee, or just iced? Servers should again work the crowd.
