Old Business: A question was brought up if the liability coverage at the club was up to date with a high enough coverage amount, and if the coverage was protecting the club and anyone involved with an event held at the club. Chris investigated the coverage and replied that everyone involved is covered under the policy. Chris also brought up that changing the coverage to a 1 million dollar policy would not raise the yearly deductible that much. A motion was made and voted through to raise the existing policy to the 1 million dollar policy coverage.
