April 12th 2017
Held at Scranton Shelter House, Scranton, Kansas
The meeting was called to order by President Bruce Anderson at 7:01 PM
Purpose of the meeting was to deal with the issue of Bruce Reynolds being involved with a cast on April 8th, 2017 while he was suspended by UKC.
Members present were: Bruce Anderson, Tom Anderson, Terry Porter, Bill Barnett, Rick Rochester, Jerald Parker, Ron Parker, and Logan Anderson. Spectators Dorothy Anderson and Sharon Porter.
First action taken was for President Anderson to appoint Jerald Parker to replace Lee New as a Board of Director because Lee had given up his position earlier in the week. Jerald accepted the position and the group agreed with the appointment.
After a lengthily discussion the following was agreed to by the members present.
1. A miss conduct form to be filled out and sent to UKC and a letter of total banning of Bruce Reynolds from any and all Kansas Federation activities and events in the future until UKC lifts their suspension, to be sent to him.
2. A letter of reprimand to be sent to Lee New, Colby Price, and Walker Pedrow.
Calls were made to Colby Price and Bruce Reynolds that night and a miss conduct form was also filled out. Walker Pedrow and Lee New could not be contacted. Terry Porter was asked to contact them and to write all the letters. Letters are to be sent by certified mail.
It is noted that this was a difficult process to deal with and all involved knew and understood the gravity of what was and did happen. We hope not to have to deal with this kind of behavior in the future.
Meeting was adjourned at approximately 9:15 PM
