Coach Arie announced that Grace Schroeder made the IBCA 2nd team. This is a great honor. She requested the booster club to split the ad cost in the program. (The athletic dept will pay the other half.) Rob Fink moved to pay for half of the ad ($150); Heather seconded the motion. All in favor.
Coach Arie proposed to purchase a new mat for the area under the stage as well as new mats at each end of the gym. The current mats can be moved to the old gym. They will have digital designs and are easy to clip on and off. The total cost is $6,500. She explained that doing several small things can make a big difference. She stated that there will also be new banners in the gym. (The booster club will not be asked to purchase those.) Stacy moved that the booster club spend up to $6,600 for new mats for the high school gym. Rob seconded. All in favor. (After the meeting, Coach Arie presented additional information that covers were needed to protect the new mats. Stacy amended her motion to include an additional $950 to cover the cost of the mats. Marisa seconded. Motion passed.)
Rob moved to adjourn.
