IW BOOSTER CLUB MINUTES – May 13, 2015 Meeting

Members present included Anne Carney, Melody Clark, Matt Clark, Stacy Connor, Doug Miller, Jim Miller, and Coach Waz.

MINUTES:   April 2015 minutes were reviewed.  Doug moved to approve the minutes; Melody seconded, all in favor – motion carried.

TREASURER’S REPORT:  Matt presented the treasurer’s report for April and showed amounts the Booster Club has made commitments for.  Doug moved to approve, Stacy seconded, all in favor – motion carried.

OLD BUSINESS

WEIGHT ROOM:   Anne presented an addition to the quote for the weight room flooring.   Additional square footage for a strip of flooring by the vending machines will be an additional cost of approximately $4,000.   Boosters agreed that the commitment to donate up to $41,100 remains the same.

GOLF OUTING CHAIR:   Matt will chair the event again this year, but requests a co-chair so that he can pass on the information about the outing and train the next person who will chair the event.  Melody will also assist.   Ad sales will be done by the golf team this year.

APPAREL:   Kristy Arie will be responsible for new apparel ordering and purchasing.   She will take orders and collect the money into her basketball account and then give the Booster club a check for the profit.   Melody will go back to Heather Frank and Heather Tammen and see if either will be willing to manage the current inventory.   (Another volunteer may be able to assist.)   Boosters will continue to purchase free shirts to toss out at various games and events.

NEW BUSINESS

RIFLE CLUB:    Jim Miller, Rifle Club Coach, requested the Booster Club donate the cost needed to adapt the air gun range to the new gym layout.   The total cost is approximately $250.   Several variables are still in question.   The Rifle Club has to change the direction of their fire.   The quote does not include the wiring or the labor to do so.   Boosters voiced concern about the old gym project and the amount that has already been committed.   Mr. Miller restated that for the $250 to work, the maintenance person must be able to do the labor.   At this point, he is just looking for general support.   Matt moved to support this project up to $250 in the fall.  Doug seconded the motion.   Motion passed.

MS TRACK STATE FINALS:   Thirteen middle school track athletes will be competing at the state track finals.   In the past, the Booster Club has donated powerades and energy bars.   Matt moved to donate powerades and energy bars; Stacy seconded.   All in favor.

SPRING AWARDS BANQUET:  The Spring Awards Banquet will be Tuesday, May 26.   Anne will order cookies, Melody will pick them up; Matt will take care of drinks; and Anne will have the cups.

ROUND TABLE:

Booster Club elections will be in June.   Cathy Crego is interested in treasurer.   The VPs from Gilman, Danforth, Onarga and Thawville will be returning.   Stacy will continue as secretary.   Anne will continue as president with the understanding that someone will take the role as president next year and she can start training that person now in 2015.  Suggestions for VP in Crescent City were mentioned.   Boosters will contact those mentioned.

The next meeting may be at the middle school so the Booster Club can see the banners.

Coach Waz moved to adjourn.

Next Meeting:   June 10, 2015 at 7:00 pm.   Location TBD.
