Treasurer's Report
Bottom Line
  • Checking: $1,996
    Savings: $4,000
    PayPal: $61
    Cash: $53
  • Have already paid for glasses & koozies
    Still need to pay bands & catering
    About $2,200 margin before we hit reserve account - v. slim
    compared to 2 years ago
Brewfest Tickets
  • get pre-purchased tonight or will be at will-call
    Ticket sales are iffy after Sunday, will work with you after but no guarantees
    Sold about 20 tickets so far tonight, need to sell 20 more (at least)
    PayPal is our friend
    Q: how many tickets do we need to sell?
    Jon: eyeballing years past, we can spend $2,000 without a problem. If we don't sell more tickets we will have a very lean winter. total 200, have sold about 60
    Still need ticket tent volunteers - 2:15-3:15 and 3:45-5:00
Need brewfest invoices by Oct 4th
Still have membership cards - come see me!
