Peggy asked whether or not we should ask to split the cost with Sarasota Bay of 2 new horseshoe pits.  Betty Trader made a motion to do so. It was seconded and passed with a unanimous voice vote.

There was discussion that the Activities listed in the Policies and Procedures needed to be updated. Also changes to the Policies and Procedures in the March 2016 meeting were invalid as the proposed changes were not in accordance with the Policies and Procedures dated 11/09/15.  Carl Shaver made a motion to have the Executive Committee review the Policies and Procedures for any needed revision, to update the Activities list and clarify who can vote with the results to be submitted at the next Activity Committee meeting.  It was seconded and passed with a unanimous voice vote.
