Margie asked to have the names of the current RABA board members and their e-mail addresses updated on the website.
Barry will contact Ed Reppert and ask him to do this.

Barry will find out the winners of the LM/NLM event held on 4/21/09 and the open pair event held in January, 2009 and will have Ed post these names on the website.
Although life masters should play only with life masters and non-life masters should play only with non-life masters, some players did not do this.
Next year RABA will attempt to make this point clearer.
Perhaps Doug can bring his Tuesday game to the Tuesday game at Sinai for the LM/NLM game next year.

The RABA Board of Directors discussed the Duplimate machine and an email from one of the club owners The email pointed out an inequity in the awarding of free plays to the Duplimate operators. Our discussion acknowledged the inequity of free plays to the duplimate operators because of their playing patterns. They don't
play at all clubs. Warren presented a proposal to the board to rectify this situation.

Motion by Warren to have Barry discuss this proposal with each club director and If we are in agreement, the new procedure will go into effect on June 1st
