    • Mike asked a question about insurance, is there an age limit? General answer is that our insurance is based on policies in place when we got our quote and we should update it if we change things, especially if they are less conservative. Mike was told that we should quarterly report our member numbers. We should count keyed members. Anyone who’s interested in insurance can come with David to the next meeting with our insurers.
