Fundraiser Night
It was not decided if a fund raiser night will be held. More discussion on this will occur at the picnic.

Concessions at Home Tournaments
It was discussed how to handle concessions for home games and tournaments as there has not been a lot of interest. Carlene said the 4-H Dairy Committee may do concessions as a fund raiser. In the event this does not get finalized, the Booster Club members and parents agreed they would be sure a simple menu of food, beverages and snacks was available.
Note: A day after the meeting, Michelle Knapkavage reported the Dairy Committee would not be doing concessions, but Bree Kratz volunteered to have Student Council handle the concessions. We are grateful for their willingness to help. Student Council will do concessions for the games on Aug. 30, Sept. 11 and Sept. 25. This leaves the games on Aug. 28 (JV and JV2 games at both locations), Sept. 13 (JV2 game), and Regionals and Sectionals which will need to be covered by the Club and parents.

50/50 Raffle
We are still looking for someone to handle the 50/50 raffle. This will be brought up at the picnic.

Chad Cornelius will be completely updating the website. He is also the person who regularly keeps the site up-to-date with team information. As a thank you, the Booster Club is purchasing a Red Robin Family Sports Pass to give to Chad.
