CCD STEERING COMMITTEE Meeting -
2:30 pm CCD Steering Committee
First aid kit: Tabled until
next meeting where Roger will hopefully address this more fully. Bruce
was not able to locate an existing kit at Morningside.
What the Hey: 150 dancers
registered for the whole weekend. 306 people were at the Friday night
dance, so CCD came out very well (double the usual income). CCD paid
for the food for the Friday night dancers.
Roswell Festival: Doug
(not in attendance, so several issues around this still need clarification)
is requesting that CCD allow a festival in Roswell to rent CCD's sound
equipment for their dance. Chris Haynes will be running sound.
Finance report: Tabled
until next meeting.
Listserv information: Lalah
created a _ page flier that can be distributed
on Friday nights to encourage community members to sign up for the CCD
CCD directory: We will
print 50 and sell them at $1 each. We can make more if these sell out.
Bruce will speak to Jim Cain (keeper of the database) to see if there
is an easy way to isolate all of the email addresses in the directory
so that an announcement about the directory and the listserv can be
emailed to them.
Lights from What the Hey:
It was suggested that the group consider buying the lights from Seth
and making them a regular fixture for Friday nights. The consensus was
that this will not be pursued at this time because the room may be too
dark for beginners. Also, it was hoped that the novelty of the lights
can be kept for special occasions.
A/C Service: Bruce will talk to Sandra at Morningside to ask if repairs have been made yet.
Advertising: Seth (in absentia)
offered to check on the steps to and costs of advertising the Friday
night dance on a regular basis in Creative Loafing and the AJC. The
free options he has steering committee approval to act on immediately;
those requiring money will be brought back to the steering committee
for approval. In addition, the group brainstormed other ways to advertise
in the community. John O'Neal shared an example of information about
the Marching Abominables that can be easily distributed to interested
parties all of the information
fits on a business card. This will be further discussed at later meetings.
Childcare: We currently
have no provider for childcare services because there have been few
or no children to be taken care of. Despite fears that lack of childcare
might discourage attendance, attendance has not changed in the last
month. The group discussed the fact that when the need becomes a strong
one (more families at the dance with young children who need supervision),
the topic will be revisited. At this point, it is not a financially
viable option for CCD to undertake.
Advanced contra workshops:
In the course of discussing workshop possibilities for the weekend,
new committee members learned that there used to be a lesson on advanced
contra moves taught for seasoned dancers during the beginner's lesson.
Several steering committee members were excited by the idea of renewing
Dance Weekend: (Janet and
we have offered childcare on Saturday during the day. Tabled.
Friday's caller: Cis will
be asked to call with Shadrack's Delight.
Saturday night dinner:
Several options were considered. We can offer dancers a good survey
of local restaurants and let them find their own. We can make reservations
for 12 people at 8 different restaurants then let people sign up for
where they want to eat. Bruce will discuss this further with George
and prior to the next meeting.
Merchandise: t-shirts and
cups only... plus leftover socks from last year.
Theme contest deadline
is June 3 so the theme will be decided at the next meeting. Discussion
of theme submissions will not include knowledge of who submitted what.
Comping: The following
policies were agreed upon:
Next Meeting: at Janet's
house on June 18, 7:30-9:30.
