Meeting minutes were posted and approved for November.
Treasurer – Karie stated that January is busy writing out checks and mailing them each day for the Lotto Board fundraiser. Next year, it will be considered to have a disclaimer on the fundraiser that all winnings will be mailed on February 1st, rather than each day. Also the board will consider obtaining a Stripe device to make collecting payments easier for the treasurer.
Snowbelt – Scott reported that there would be a Snow Belt meeting coming up. Scott let us know that new score sheets were presented and has them available for everyone.
Scheduler – Practice at the Domes has gone well. It has been a positive for the teams to have some full ice practices. Mark will be sure to communicate with the teams in advance, so that they will know if they will have a practice with full ice.
Equipment – The coach bags are available to be signed out. Matt will be contacting coaches so that they are able to sign out their bags for the season.
Old Business –
Mite Mania – A deadline for sign ups of January 5th was motioned by Jeff and seconded by Karie. The fee for Mite Mania is being decreased to $400 after being motioned by Matt and seconded by Amy, as well as a $50 discount for organizations who bring multiple teams. Brie and Mark will be sending out the flier to reach out to Mite teams that may be interested in the tournament.
February Freeze – Sign ups have started and are looking good.
New Business –
End of the Year Banquet – A date of Tuesday March 27th was selected as the End of the Year Banquet. First Arena is being considered as an option, due to the great crowd size we had last year. Mark will also look into other options that may be able to accommodate our organization.
Motion to adjourn meeting – Matt motions to adjourn, Karie seconded. Meeting adjourned at 6:45pm.
Next meeting is January 10th at 6pm location TBD.
