Special Board Meeting Notes: Dec 17th, 2018

The CSCA Board had a special meeting on the evening of Monday, December 17.  Present were Richard Buchanan, Kevin McConnell, James LaMorgese, Dean Brown, and Todd Bardwick.

We had a discussion of financial matters and the difficulties of using on-line registrations and accounting for the money.  Also there are many players who apparently joined CSCA at the Colorado Open but whose names we do not have.  Anyone who thinks this might apply to them should contact James LaMorgese.

The main item for the meeting was a project that Kevin McConnell is working on.  In it the Denver Open would also hold a girls scholastic championships tournament, and the top section of the Open would include a number of titled masters.  Some of these would receive financial incentives to participate and publicize the tournament among their colleagues.  The Board approved looking into the matter further in co-operation with the Denver Chess Club.  More on this will be coming out as it develops.

Board Meeting Notes: Nov 25th, 2018

The CSCA Board met at Todd Bardwick's house at 6:00, Nov. 25.

Present: Richard Buchanan, Kevin McConnell, Dean Brown, Akshat Jain, Todd Bardwick

Absent: James LaMorgese, Jeff Cohen
