Fundraiser - The Kohl CARE card program ran during the recreation season and was unsuccessful. The small number of cards will be ordered through the club however we will not do this again in the future.

The club made $300 on the TOPS Diner fundraiser. Discussing dates in the spring for another TOPS Diner fundraiser.

Pat is working with Mike Coelho from The Coupon Cart on selling Rotterdam business savings cards again this year. Mike and Pat are coordinating with local businesses for a spot on the fundraising card and also a sponsorship for the 35th anniversary of the club.

Indoor Facilty- Goals are in but we need some padding around the posts. Make sure kids are cleaning up after themselves. If the garbage is full take it out and put it in the dumpster. If you use the cones and pinnies at the facility please leave them there.

Old Business – Fall recreation received $2300 through the pictures and trophies. There will be a fall recreation update and update on the previous business card fundraising activity at the next meeting.

New Business - Next Thursday night the board will meet to go over fundraising and tournament activities. The tournament has been set for April 8-11, 2011. The tournament will be early this year because of where spring break falls and the start of the CDYSL season. Flyers will be made and passed out at the December meeting so you can start recruiting teams.

Fred Saccocio would like to offer speed and agility to the club again this year. Dave will get in touch with Fred and see if we can set it up. Speed and agility will most likely take place during the open slots on Saturday.
