Autumn recapped the Youth Awards Activity. The event was late this year due in part to folks declining to participate, Holidays and other events interfering. Butch mentioned the event will be held the first weekend in June 2012. Butch spoke about the additional responsibilities placed on this Board, after the merger, associated with the Youth Tournaments and activities. Howard questioned combining the Adult Banquet and Youth Awards Activity. To combine Adult and Youth at a Banquet, alcohol will not be permitted and we will need to find a location that offers an atmosphere that is compliant with the USBC Youth Code of Conduct.
