Finance Report

  • Sheryl was not present to provide an update; however Wayne reported that he did just co‐sign checks for Fred's, Pepsi and the Soccer Goals.


  • Discount Cards (Next Year)
    • Wayne has new contract prepared and will begin looking for new sponsors for next year in the next month or so.
    • Knows we are losing The Creamery, Amy Jos and Burger Boy from the card and is already planning to get Fiesta Cancun, Great Clips, BWW.
    • A suggestion was made to maybe consider selling them as 1 for $10 or 2 for $15 next year and to also consider charging the staff $5/card instead of giving them free.


  • Baseball concession ‐ Chara asked Coach Jones (Assistant AD) how we go about getting these repairs made now that baseball season is finished.
    • Coach Jones said a work order has to be put in.  He said he would check with Coach Varacchi and Mrs. Whitley to get this done.
    • The list of repairs that needed to be made in the baseball concession in order to sell hot food is:
      • Repair flooring
      • Repair/replace lighting
      • Need handwashing sink
  • There was a concern of the number of people (staff and coaches) that have a key to access all the concession stands and not being able to keep track of concession inventory purchased. The concerns were that some of the coaches would go in the concessions at any given time and get a drink or snack and we have no way of monitoring the inventory like that.
    • Brian suggested that we put in a request to change the locks on ALL the concessions & storage room.  UPDATE - Brian said he would speak with Mr. Holley about the locks on the concessions.
