Buying new gymnasium mats. All money was given to the school.
Rick presented a example of what the new mats will look like
Holly – Waiting on funds from Fan Club. Didn’t make a ton of money yet. Have 3 extra shirts due to an error at the printers.
Amy is trying to get the chairs, but hasn’t been able to get there when they were open. We ordered 20 stadium seats. Have already sold 3 of them. Holly will keep them in her room at school. Was sent some other designs, but haven’t done anything with them yet.
We are going to do an all-black T-shirt. Still working on designs with the manufacturer. Going to do them all on-line.
The lady in Kansas makes T-shirts one at a time if we need to.
Pat – we still have plenty of flags and T-shirts. Stadium seats also.
Football – request for the Travel bags. $33 per bag was what was asked for. 50 bags, so $1650 total.
Rick – We’ll have the coach get a proposal together and submit to the club
Holly mentions that we purchase, Amy seconds. All in favor. Bags will be purchased.
Golf – Request for rain suits for #59.95 per set. About $360 worth. Also requested baseball style hats with the EC logo. About $11.99 to $13.99 per hat. Stocking hats were requested also. Last meeting we discussed not buying stuff for kids to keep.
Rick – had issues in the past with allowing kids to buy items when they graduate. People complained about mismatching uniforms, etc. Problems when things are being discontinued. The school may need to have that discussion down the road.
What about kids that we don’t have sizes for the next year. Booster club will consider buying more rain gear next year to add additional sizes that are needed. Rain gear would be handy in the past for the gold team.
Cole motions to approve the rain gear and deny the hats, second by Dave Meier. All were in favor of the motion.
Volleyball – Request for ball cart for ~$100. Aircat training machine was ~$3600. 3 each Blocking pads ($42 each) and setter training balls (~$45 each) also on the request. Also requested team t-shirts that would be kept by the girls.
Dave Meier motions to accept the request for the ball cart, blocking pads an setter training balls, deny others. Second by Davis Miner. Motion carries.
Music – Thank you was sent from Mrs. Lowe for the new Stereo.
Discussion on how much money is in each activity account. We will probably get requested to have camps paid for until we deny some of them. Where is the money going for sports doing concession stands, etc? Booster club is not getting it. Currently the AD at Elm Creek does not handle the financial side of the activities at Elm Creek. Can’t comment on where the money went to currently. May want to request that Mr. Sullivan comes and talks to the Booster Club about what activities funds raised at events goes to.
