January Board Meeting Minutes

  • Registration: going well, some board members have signed up and it’s flawless. Some questions have come in and Claire has responded. I had one and handed off to Claire as it was softball related.
  • Winter workout update: going well
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods: dates to come look for one in Feb and 1 in March and try to plan on at least 1 hour to sit.
  • Need tryout dates/evaluations for minors and majors. Looking at 2/28 for regular rate cut off and March 15 final cut off and tryouts sometime soon after.
  • Opening day: May 6, wanting to try and plan a bounce house/dunk tank if anyone has any ideas please reach out to Sarah
  • Talk of a movie night at the park. Example Sandlot or A League of Their Own (sometime in July) Ben has a screen
  • Fundraising: Harris is unique because we own it all therefore easy to get in trouble if we aren’t careful with how things are done/run.
  • Picture dates: May 16,17,18 See Brandon if you have any questions
  • Bathroom/dugout projects: Masonry no longer available that we had lined up so we are starting from scratch. If you know of one, please reach out to Dave or Brandon.
  • Financials: not a lot of activity.
  • Brandon says we need an ATM machine. I suggested getting a Venmo for the park.
  • Sarah to look into a upright stand alone freezer from Camden’s scratch and dent and/or marketplace.
