3. Old Business

 Concessions – plan for 2011-2012

  • Toni reported that a “Booster Club” has been formed to help with the tasks associated with Concessions. The changes that will occur beginning with the 2011 volleyball league home games are the following:
  • Admissions volunteers to be assigned by Team Parents, not the Booster Club. If a team is playing a game at home, that team will be responsible to fill this position during the game. The admission volunteer will also be responsible for selling a small selection of beverages, candy, and snacks at the admission table. At this time popcorn has been removed from the option of items to be sold.
  • Supplies will be purchased by the Booster Club. Kris Schommer has volunteered to help manage the Booster Club by verifying supplies are stocked prior to games and keeping Toni posted throughout the school year.
  • Regarding the home tournaments, the Booster Club will be responsible for coordinating all volunteers via the online signup, stocking concession supplies for all items previously made available at home tournaments, and being available at the start of each day of games for set up and concessions volunteer instruction.

Advertising in gym

A business has expressed interest in advertising in the HA gym on a business banner, similar to what can be seen in the St. Mary’s gym. After much discussion, it was decided not to move forward with this type of fundraising at this time.

8. Financial Report

Presented and approved. We came in well under budget this year as new uniforms were not purchased as expected and the lack of a 7th grade basketball team eliminated the need for tournament fees.
