Tyndall Chamber of Commerce met for their regular monthly meeting March 2, 2021 at the 4-H Center with 12 members present and one guest, Mike Koranda, the new 4-H youth advisor for Bon Homme and Charles Mix Counties. President Holly McCann conducted the meeting.

In the absence of Jane Sedlacek, treasurer, McCann gave the financial report with $4,114.73 in the checking and $4,007.00 in the Chamber bucks accounts. A motion and second were made by Julie Schenkel and Sarah Papke to approve the report. Motion carried
The same slate of officers will retain their respective positions for the coming 2021 year on a motion and second by Julie Schenkel and Katie Hauck. Motion carried. Officers are Holly McCann, president; 4 Paws Spa representative, vice president; Donna Horkey and Becky Tycz, co-secretaries and Jane Sedlacek, treasurer.
McCann noted that Donna Horkey and herself gathered at the Tyndall Tribune office with Becky Tycz to draw for the Christmas prizes. McCann felt the promotion went well with a large number of individuals registering. Prizes consisted of a $200 winner, two $100 winners, ten $50 winners and five $20 winners of Chamber bucks.
President McCann asked the thoughts of those in attendance how to proceed with Hot Dog Night. It was the consensus to continue plans for this year’s Hot Dog Night for June 11 with the options of each individual business serving hot dogs as in the past or have only two locations at different ends of the street serving hot dogs. There will be no snow cones this year, but there will be a corn hole tournament and there is a possibility for either a band or karaoke for the evening entertainment.
Bob Foley confirmed that the RASDAK “Best Dam Bike Race” will be held this year with Tyndall as a stopping point for the evening of June 11 as well. The bike race featuring rides around the South Dakota dams has been limited to 175 riders but would also include approximately 25 riders’ assistants. The riders will be coming from Platte. A number of ideas were voiced on how the Chamber could help with the event such as promotions and prizes during the day stop, welcome packets, pork loin evening meal in the park. The 4-H Clubs will serve breakfast to the riders and assistants the morning of June 12 as they exit Tyndall. More planning will be done during the April and May meetings.
The 4-H chicken barbecue will be the end of July.
McCann questioned the members during the months that Chamber does not meet, if there would be a consideration to continue the monthly Chamber bucks drawing at participating businesses on a rotating basis. A motion and second by Katie Hauck and Sarah Papke were made to hold a Chamber bucks drawing at a participating business on a rotating basis for the months Chamber meetings are not held. Motion carried.
Committee sign-up sheets were circulated.
There were no committee reports, business sharing or correspondence.
This month’s Chamber bucks drawing winner was Emily McMahon of Tyndall who registered at Hometown Floral.
The next meeting will be Tuesday, April 6 at noon at a place to be determined.
With no further business, the meeting adjourned.
