Banquet Report – Gina Garcia prepared the program and donated many items for the banquet. Total costs came in under budget.
End of Year Financial Report – Amy reviewed finance statement from Oct and Nov. and the 2013 budget for the season.
Recommendation/Comments from 2013 Booster Club Officers –
· All dig pink stock is gone.
· Recommends only ordering the number of practice t-shirts needed. There are some left over, if cannot use next year, will use to throw into stands when players are introduced.
· Pat S told the group that we may not see any expense for program inserts or revenue due to revamping of booklet this year.
· The In-season tournament awards budget may need to be increased to cover costs.
· Did not pay for student gate this year, did that last year. Something to consider for future season.
· Middle School came up short with fundraising to cover costs of coaching staff, booster club made up the difference.
· Dig Pink – Suggests t-shirts reflect volleyball and not just dig-pink. Purchased at Advanced Sportswear. Stephanie Dockter helped this year and has said she would help next season also.
· Michelle recommends have a night where students get in free , but ask to bring in a non-perishable food item.
· If student admittance fees are covered it should be communicated timely and clearly.
· Don’t forget to get the program inserts going early, it is dependent on pictures.
· Sr. night was too early in the season, should be in October.
· Make sure concessions are ready to go at start of season, especially if early in the season.
· Michelle researched booster club bylaws and found University Interscholastic League Booster Club Guidelines, some similarities for current Booster Club by-laws. Suggests that they be reviewed before next season.
· Review monthly meeting time and schedule for the majority.
· Is insurance needed if we host tournaments? RT took care of that in the past.
· Pat S will provide information on concession rules (health guidelines)
· Michelle handed over packets of samples of events.
· Michelle has a case of hot dogs in freezer and a case of sour cream.
· Had a player that was ill on night of money bag drawing and did not know until after the season this had happened. The player was offered a sweatshirt in place of that and was satisfied. Something to consider for next year.
· Consider school activities when planning vball activities, such as dig pink was same week as homecoming.
· For tournaments, Coach J suggests that a person be assigned specifically to track matches wins/losses/scores (a coach). It was too much at this year’s tournaments to expect the trainer to also complete that duty.
· Off-season tournaments: Feb 16 is President’s Day Festival and is to be held at Woodbury High School. March 29 and 30 at Park. Jon will talk to RT about details.
· In season tournaments, John asked the group if 2 are manageable and if something that we would want to continue. Park has already been invited to a tournament next year.
· Left over drink will be fine and stay in the cage until next tournament.
· Jon requested to organize and clean out the cage. Permission granted.
· Jon gave information from the recent conference meeting. One thought was to have 9th grade matches same night as B/JV/V.
· District 833 rules dictate matches not start before 4:15.
· Get sizes for all players to have on hand incase spirit wear will be ordered for players (such as dig pink t-shirts).
· Get with Athletic Office to provide input to game handouts.
