Board Report: Rodger McKinley, Board Chair:  QCYC will be getting a bill for recent Tax Attorney work.  Taxes relative to the 520 settlement are in great shape and require no tax liabilities for QCYC.  Terron made a motion that P&F recommends to the Board that we use the 520 fund reserve funds to pay for the attorneys investing the 520 tax liabilities from the 520 income settlement.  Jeff seconded. Passed.

Treasurer Report: Joyce Carlson:  Joyce joked she was going to give a one hour report. Interest we made last month was $6922. Going to invest in more t-bills. Office Credit Card machine is about to be discontinued from product support. They are looking into Square to replace current system.  Square and PayPal both charge 3.5%.  VC Day will work to notify membership that there will be a rate increase to 3.5%.  With Craig Ranta’s help, Office is actively moving to QuickBooks Online from installed version now.  Allows 5 users and all “money centers” including Bar Operations, Store Operations and Jr Sailing.  Expects to be live in June.  Joyce gave a shared-screen demo.  Comments were mostly, “Joyce really is going to give a one hour report, isn’t she?”

        • QCYC will have a moorage loss of 2 side-ties on Dock 3 due to 520 Bridge distance limits.
        • Jeff asked for an updated 2024 budget proposal by July.

      • The same company that is building the bridge will be responsible for modifying Dock 3.
      • Structural evaluation of Dock 3 to be completed within the next 30 - 60 days.  The evaluation is taking a benchmark of where the club house literally sits, its structural soundness, as well as that of the docks and a bathyspheric evaluation of our marina.
