BASEBALL CONCESSIONS:  Boosters will first approach Coach Rhodes and ask him if the baseball team will do it, similar to other sports.  If the baseball team cannot, the Booster Club will approach other athletic groups; then will go to Linda for suggestions.  Heather will continue to work on this.   (With baseball concessions off-site there are additional challenges.)

ROUND TABLE

Boosters discussed apparel.  Next year Boosters will try to offer some lower priced items.   Also, there was much interest in the give-away shirts this year.   Suggestion made to sell them next year.

Coach Waz explained that there was great interest in boys’ basketball this year and with so many going out for the team, there are not enough jerseys.    Boosters asked Coach Waz what could be done to help.  There was much discussion about having enough team uniforms for all of the athletes that went out for the team.  Heather will call Hanns and talk to him about it.   Boosters were told that since this is time sensitive and there is no December meeting, to watch emails and a vote may be conducted via email.

Rob moved to adjourn.

NEXT MEETING:   January 18, 2017  (No December meeting)
