Treasurer’s Report – John Gaffney

·       Cash is strong

·       Revenue and Expenses are right on budget however the timing this year is different than previous years

o      The bulk of registrations came in earlier this year than previous years

o      The program was basically full by the end of February with registration revenue coming in as early as December 2010. 

o      There was discussion to include 12/10 revenue in the report since it is part of the 2011 financials (November to November)
