MINUTES MVUDSS BOARD MEETING 7/23/18

IN ATTENDANCE: S. Baranick (SB); J. Hansell (JH); R. Schemp (RS)
ABSENT: H. Alberts (HA); T. Jadwin (TJ)

1. Monday League Games – Labor Day
SB indicated that playing league games on Labor Day, Monday, 9/3/18 would reduce the number of doubleheaders from 2 to 1 during the fall 2018 season; allow for rescheduling of a rainout without having to extend the fall 2018 season into 2019; and would not change the start/end of the fall/spring 2018-2019 seasons. Without vote, but with unanimous consensus of the three Board members in attendance, it was agreed to play league games on Monday, 9/3/18. HA and TJ gave their concurrence via text.

2. League Fee – Fall 2018
SB stated that a $40 league fee for the fall 2018 season would result in an approximate $200 shortfall and a $45 league fee for the fall 2018 season would result in an approximate $300 surplus. He indicated that the fee included the cost for insurance and all other “fixed” costs, but did not include the costs for repair/replacement of pitching screens nor did it include the cost for additional Rock softballs.

Without vote, but with unanimous consensus of those Board members in attendance, it was agreed to set the league fee for the fall 2018 season at $45. However, JH made it clear that the number can be used for preliminary planning, but that no formal communication be made on this until Board members HA and TJ have a chance to review/comment.
(Subsequent to the Board meeting, HA indicated his concurrence with the $45 league fee.)
