I have to step in here and say I'm sorry for the way this has dropped off the radar.
We have a rule that states all purchases over $50 must be voted in at a club meeting AND this hole sponsorship was not brought up at the last meeting to be approved.
However, we officers can approve up to $50, and we have. The other $50 have come out of Max and Mike Simone's pockets.
To fix this for the future, I am adding "Sponsorships" to the agenda as a recurring item.
Please don't fault anyone for this as it is a rule that was agreed upon and voted on by EVERYONE at our last meeting in May. (look at the minutes if you want to know who was there www.greenvilledg.com)
If we go and bend/break this rule, then we leave the door wide open to bend/break other rules as we go along.
I don't think the rule is to blame here either, it's the fact that the sponsorship of $100 wasn't brought to the table as an agenda item at the meeting.
I'm sorry things are getting political, but we do need to maintain finances and leaving an open door to spending money can deplete a bank account very quickly.
