Malcolm Koll comes back with a beard after visiting Norway to see the Northern Lights :-). He will be the new co-chair for Bocce along with Bill Sutton. The date has been finalized for Sep 29 and 30 at the east end of the Surf Cup Sports Park. He gave a quick vision of how the Bocce event is going to be re-organized this time with more fun by bringing in a theme of Oktoberfest and hence registered the name Bocctoberfest as the new theme. His goal is to raise over $100,000 within 3 years. Charles and Molly talked about their Marketing and Sales approach and how they need every member to participate. Sanjiv and Charlotte briefed about the approach to Auction, Raffles and other forms of income-generating ideas.
Then we had Jon Fish give a quick briefing about his role as the Treasurer and his past role as Bocce Chair.
As Treasurer he has to make sure he tallies up all the "Happy Dollars" collected at each event, the Polio funds and Fines. He has to reconcile the Del Mar and San Diego foundation accounts. He manages all the finance and tax related work. He gets some reconciling bank accounts and verification help from a consultant (Michelle), who gets paid $75/month. 
As Bocce Chair he had to coordinate all sub-committees, manage getting all volunteers, find the field and negotiate the prices, arrange all the staffing and other miscellaneous tasks.
1. Why did you choose that position? He loves finance and has been doing it for a long time.
2. How would you improve it? By adding credit card payments instead of checks.
