Ray Woodruff spoke to the board, asking to take over the spot vacated by Pete Kenny. Jay Burghardt asked him about the previous stepping down, and Ray said that part of the reason he stepped down was because his workload at his job increased dramatically. But now, it has been reduced back to levels closer to what it was before and he feels he will be able to give his full attention back to the board and the club. Geoff asked about the appearance of favoritism toward the Mile High Club when it comes to tournaments, as Ray is currently the State coordinator. Ray spoke about this, and assured the board he would be fair and impartial when it comes to decisions that the club is involved in.
Sean Clark, speaking from his experience, asked the board if it was reasonable to request a letter from Ray, explaining how he intends to show himself as fair and impartial in upcoming decisions regarding the MHDGC, and the board agreed, by majority, that would be a fair request. Jay Burghardt chose not to vote.
Ray was informed of the board's decision and agreed to write a letter to the board concerning this. and that upon doing so, he would be able to assume Pete Kenny's vacated board seat.
