2016 Equipment Acquisition Meeting

Wednesday, February 3
7 – 9 PM

Lambertville Public Library Community Room
6 Lilly St, Lambertville, NJ 08530

Please join us on Wednesday, February 3 for the 2016 Equipment Acquisition Meeting!

At this meeting, we will review the equipment requests that were gathered at the end of 2015 and identify which items the club will proceed with, relative to the available budget.

During our year end annual meeting on December 16, we highlighted a few factors which would influence this process:

1) The 2015 Board made the decision to allocate funds toward a new coach’s launch and two new motors to address safety and reliability concerns with the current fleet of launches.

2) The 2016 budget includes allocating more funds toward yearly repair of equipment which better aligns with our actual needs. Historically, marginal funds have been allocated to boat/oar maintenance.

3) The 2016 budget includes a specific line item to allocate money towards refreshing/refurbishing existing equipment. The current thought is to earmark those funds to refresh mechanical/wear items on the club’s doubles and pairs.

4) The Nell, a club favorite, is out for professional hull repair.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
