Thursday, October 8, 2015 N/Warren Town and County News Page Nine August 25, 2015 Matt Leek called the meeting to order at 7:05 p.m. There were 14people present at the meeting. Secretary's Report Minutes from the July meeting and Annual meet- ing were reviewed. Mo- tion to accept theminutes as written was made by Darin Hirl, seconded by Nancy LaVelle. Motion carried. Treasurer's Report Troy Downs was absent from tonight's meeting. Prior to the meeting Troy spoke with Stacy Rosonke and requested I talk with the board about our cur- rent financial standing and need forus to begin spend- ing. It is important to keep our not for profit status and if our account contin- ues to grow it is possible we could lose that status. The financial report will be updated for review at the next meeting. Concession Report Mary Knickerbocker re- ported that the concession stand is ready for the foot- ball season. Matt Leek reported that he has purchased two new gas grills from Sam's Club at $399 each. The grills have eight burners with covers; they are collapsible and have wheels that al- low us to move them eas- 'ily. .... Mary questioned if it would be possible to pur- ichase a new freezer for the gym concession stand. The board discussed and deter- mined that it is probably best to purchase a new one rather than continually moving the current one to prevent wear and tear on the coals. Matt Leek indicated that he would organize the bank bags and make sure there are keys for each bag. The board discussed the use of the ice trough at the grill during the football games. The board decided that it may be best to bring one of the coolers out to the grill and hook up an extension cord to run from the concession stand to the cooler. This will cut down on the need forice and so people won't have to dig into the trough to find a pop. Coaches Wish List There were no new coach's wish fist items to approve at this m~! :ring.

Matt Leek indicated that he would be getting $1,500 in startup money for football games due to the continued problems with running out of ones and quarters. The board discussed the youth basketball tourna- ments and decided to go with a January 16th date for the boy's tournament. The board discussed the girls tournament and the uncertainty of whether to have one or not due to low registration count and can- cellations in the last two years. The board felt that maybe it would be best to have another fundraiser of some sort, possibly a dodge ball tournament, to make up for not having the gifts tournament.
