V. Financial Update
John Curran updated the board on the status of the financials, which are healthy and on target.
VI. Sound System
The sound system we arranged to be purchased for the rink will be installed the day after the rink closes. We are very pleased that BYHA is in position to give back to the rink and the community and believe the sound system will be a valued addition to the rink.
VII. Board Nominations/Elections
We discussed the status of board nominations for the upcoming year. There are two current board members who have expressed an interest to return and two new candidates who have expressed an interest to join the board. There are four potential openings. The nominating committee is scheduling final interviews and will submit recommendations to the board at the next board meeting.
We discussed the scheduling of end of the year banquets. The Mite Developmental Program (a/k/a the Mini Marauders) will not have a banquet, but have instead asked to have an end of the year party at the rink. We also discussed trophies/shorts for the various teams.
As a service to our members, we agreed to distribute to our members by email some information on a baseball clinic being organized by Peter Noone. We also discussed arranging for storage of equipment at the rink for equipment used by the Mini-Marauders.
X. Player Placements
We discussed the process for the placements, which is ongoing. Placements will continue next week. There have been additional registrations after the first placement session. We also discussed the status of some of the girls teams and options for those teams going into next year. We will follow up at the next board meeting. We also discussed options for the Bantams and Midgets.
Brian Quirk adjourned the meeting at 8:40 p.m.
