There was also a prior request from fans of another sport to be able to sell sandwiches at various games.    Boosters discussed adding items to the menu and the challenges in having different items for different sports.  A question was asked about liability, food and serving it from the concession stand.  Stacy will ask Gary Schmid for details on the coverage of the Booster policy.

On Saturday (1/16) there are sixth grade basketball games at the middle school.   Heather will run the concession stand.

The sound system at the middle school was discussed.   The consensus is that an upgrade is needed.   There are moments where it sounds good, but much of the time it cuts in and out and does not sound good.   Anne will email Mr. Ehmen and remind him that the Booster Club has offered to help with this project.

Doug moved to adjourn.

Next Meeting:   February 10, 2016 at 7:00 pm at the high school
