General Meeting

July 30, 2013

7:00 PM

Prairie Land Park, Saskatoon SK

Present:  Gloria Kadlec, Kelly Byrne, Nancy Dancy, Patrice Zimmerman, Carol Gran, Meg Sparrow, Jennelle Prytula, Dallas Warken, Susan Sjogren, Jane Claffey, Melissa Rasmuson, Jamie Lobb, Janelle Kapeller, Jocelyn Wilson, Jamie McDonald, Morgan Metz, Charmaine Grad, Kerry Maynes, Dino Claypool, Ashley Roy, Michelle Hauberg and 70 members present.

Call to Order:  Gloria called the meeting to order at 7:05 pm

After additions to the agenda, Jane Claffey adopted the agenda and Jamie Lobb seconded all in favour carried.

Michelle read the Minutes of the last meeting AGM and adopted the minutes as read.                                             Seconded by Becky Bossear all in favour, carried.

Business from the minutes:

A)   3 or 4 day format – questionnaire results from districts.  Rebecca Beebe made the motion that the finals remain as a 4 day format, Jhenna Van Metre seconded the motion all in favour, carried.

B)   4D Finals – Splits and payout % it was decided to leave the 4D splits in the open using a 7/10 split.  The youth and Barrel Bonanza will continue to use a 3D format.

Financial Report:  Michelle gave an overview of the income and expenses for the 2012 year and as of July 30, 2013 the SBRA had $103280.15 in the Provincial account and $5517.09 in the Finals account.  Michelle adopted the treasurer’s report as presented.  Carol Gran seconded, all in favour carried.

New Business:

A)   Districts and district boundaries-Boundary Map it was decided that all Districts will continue with the same boundaries and 2 Directors per District.

B)   Dual Approved Jackpots – what associations can we dual sanction with? 4-H, Rodeo, Gymkhana, AQHA, APHA after discussing the pros and cons of dual approving with other associations Jodie Griffin made the motion not to dual approve with other associations that do not use the same format as the SBRA.  Charlotte Jackson seconded the motion, all in favour, carried.

C)   Fiscal Year End – Michelle is to look into the possibility of using webinar or something similar to present the financial report within 3 months of year end.  We presently have our annual meeting 7 months after the year end has finished and this is not within the required timeline.

D)   People running at Jackpots that do not have a membership.  It has been brought to the attention of the SBRA that people are competing at jackpots and do not have memberships.  This is a huge liability issue.  If someone were to be hurt at a jackpot where an individual participated that did not have a membership all the insurance that covers the jackpot becomes void.  Therefore no one has insurance coverage and puts the jackpot host at risk as well.  The office will be enforcing that if a member does not submit a waiver they will not be issued a membership until the waiver is received at the office.  Lindsy Smith motioned that you must provide proof of membership to run at SBRA jackpots.  A list will also be on the website stating members name and District # and no other information.  Proof is a valid membership card.  Danielle Knudsen seconded the motion, all in favour, carried.

E)   Permit memberships, after a lengthy discussion regarding the permit membership and how they function Morgan Metz made the motion to eliminate the permit membership.  Becky Bossear seconded the motion.  15 in favour remaining opposed not carried.  This will be tables for discussion at the next Board of Directors meeting.

F)    One pattern and carryover times.  After discussion it was felt that the members that cross over i.e. open-youth, open- Barrel Bonanza should be allowed to carryover their times.  Angela Mastad made the motion that times from the Barrel Bonanza can carry over to the open but this choice must be submitted when entries are submitted.  Kylie Mackie seconded the motion, all in favour carried.

This will result in the Barrel Bonanza being run before the open at the 2014 Finals.

Morgan Metz motioned that if declared at entry time the times from youth can be carried over to the open.  This is only for the long go and jackpots.  In the short go all runs must be ran no carryover of times.  Becky Bossear seconded, all in favour carried.

G)   2014 SBRA finals date.  Jamie Lobb motioned that the dates for the 2014 finals are July 28-31.  Brandy Bossear seconded all in favour carries.

H)   Leaving the arena on a broken pattern, Jamie Lobb made the motion that you can finish the pattern but it must be completed at a reasonable speed.  Kelly Byrne seconded, all in favour carried.

I)     Youth 4D formats – there are not enough competitors to run a 4D format in the youth.

J)    Stalling – a concern was brought forth regarding some of the outdoor stalls and the fact that mold was present in the said stalls.  The members that voiced concerns to the Directors at the Finals will be reimbursed the difference from stalling to self penning or haul in.

K)   It was asked that the warm up arena in 2014 be watered down to control the dust.

Election of Officers:

A)    President:  Becky Bossear nominated Krystal Grad.  Kylie Mackie nominated Sharon Oddan.  Jocelyn Wilson moved nominations cease.  After the membership voted Sharon Oddan was declared the new SBRA president.

B)     Vice President – Kelly Byrne
