5.Club Owners Issues
Bill brought up the lack of notice of an event held at Soul Sanctuary on a Wednesday evening that had every parking stall occupied and also all the available street parking. Advance notice was not received that this would take place. This was strictly an oversight by Soul Sanctuary and it is not expected to happen again. It was deemed to be a human error. Bill had to cancel his game that evening.
Request for a Lost and Found Box at the Facility was deemed not to be feasible as storage space is at a premium.
