Director's duties/fees


Jerry Grissom moved directors fees be raised to $50 a game, seconded by Frank Battaile. Discussion followed.

Duties of the director were discussed: Lynne suggested an amendment on fees if the director plays. Director plays if someone comes to play and has no partner but should not schedule his own partner. Further discussion followed as there is only one director and does not have a chance to play otherwise. If there were more directors, they could have the time off to play. The motion was amended as follows: $30 for 6 or less tables, $40 for 6 ½ - 9 ½, and $50 for 10+ tables. Motion carried.
