Owner talked with John tonight about our purchases being pretty short last month - his primary concern is the waitresses making a minimum of $30 in tips. The waitresses are brought in specifically to wait on us.
John reiterated to everyone we have to eat and be sure to tip the waitresses or we will either have to pay for the room or leave.
Jeff Weaver made point that this issue comes up fairly regularly and either we are going to spend enough or not. Those that are going to eat or going to and those that are not or not and discussing it is not going to change anything.
There was some discussion regarding a participation requirement - John made the point that discussion would be best held until September/October for motions to change the Constitution. Also discussion regarding a tip jar available for everyone attending making a mandatory contribution when attending the meeting in an effort to ensure the waitresses received adequate tips. No motions were made.
