5) August Scene details and aftermath
Out of all the public statements made online, the educational munch will be used to address the
facts of the night and answer questions from members.
We have made 2 posts to address any misunderstandings and give the facts of the night. We have
adhered to our policies of no more drama online and shut each of the threads to prevent any
New policies are going to need to be made to deal with the drama online and to break the trend
of slandering the club. Also to reinforce the policy of how to ask the board questions versus the
posts in the group intending to cause undue drama.
POLICY: Slander of the club “HPEP”, is subject to suspension of membership, for cause,
or expulsion from the club, under bylaws 2.4.1. PASSED

1 st Friday of each month to do something fun. Once each quarter the “adventure” will be held on
the 2 nd Saturday.
Friday night ideas:
Winery trip to the Hill country
Visit to an out of town dungeon and attending a party as a large group of kinksters
8) Vetting bottoms – DomKoz
DomKoz discussed that bottoms are not vetted like Tops and Doms are and this needs to be
“Vetting” as an Education Munch topic is proposed. It was decided that this is not a board issue,
due to the liability that opens us to if something goes wrong. We need to support personal
responsibility between members.
Colored lanyards are discussed as a possible way to identify those who are willing to play and
their role (Dom, sub, Switch).
9) DM’s as lifeguards or play police – DomKoz
DomKoz discussed the role of the DM as lifeguards or play police, especially in a rope scene.
It was decided that this was not a board issue and is up to the Head DM and DM’s at the party
witnessing the scene. They are trained and taught to step in when they feel they need to step in.
If a Top or Dom disrespects our DM’s, the board supports that member being told to stop their
scene and leave the party.
If SIGs invite our Head DM and/or DM’s to their meeting to discuss the role of the DM’s they
Kinky_Cajun asked if any further business was to come before the board – none proposed.
Kinky_Cajun closed the meeting at 8:40PM
