1. Lyle Spatz wished to thank Retrosheet for our continuing effort to pass along newly discovered record changes. He especially wished to commend Greg Beston and told the Board that Greg should get a raise. The president immediately doubled Greg’s salary.
2. David Vincent asked members to send all instances of unusual plays directly to him for inclusion in The Retro Sheet instead of sending them to Dave Smith (“let’s eliminate the middle man.”) He promises to keep the president informed.
3. The Treasurer’s report included $2400.00 in unreimbursed donations. These come mostly from Dave Smith and Clem Comly to which all members say “Thanks!”
