GRAHA General Meeting Minutes from December,
2017 IRA Civic Center The meeting was called to order at 6:00 p.m.
Board members present were Sean Colter, Chris Henrichsen, Mark Butterfield, Chad Sterle, Chris Morque, Dave Kuschel and Jeremy Carlson. Others in attendance were Colleen Forrest, Dale Christy and Greg Daydodge.
The first order of business was a presentation of the financial report by Chris Henrichsen. We went through the balance sheets of November 30, 2017, the profit and loss statements as well as transaction by account. After a detailed discussion a motion was made by Chad Sterle, seconded by Mark Butterfield which passed unanimously to accept the balance sheet of November 30, 2017, the profit/loss statement July through November of this year which was the previous year comparison, the profit/loss statement July through November budget versus actual, and the transaction by account.
Next was the gambling update by Dale Christy. Motion was made by Chad Sterle, seconded by Dave Kuschel which passed unanimously to accept the October 2017 tax return. There was an in-depth discussion about the December 2017 budget. After discussion a motion was made by Chad Sterle, seconded by Jeremy Carlson which passed the budget unanimously.
Next we went through the November check register. Motion was made by Chris Henrichsen, seconded by Mark Butterfield which passed the November check registry unanimously.
There was no update from the PDC.
Next was the report from the Secretary. After a brief discussion we stated that it would make sense to invite Tom Pagel to our next meeting to discuss a possible upgrade to the Civic Center.
Next there was a request from Ryan Mullet (the uncle of two female GRAHA player) who was helping to coach the 12-U girls’ team. As he is not a parent he was requesting (on behalf of his nieces) that he receive 11 DIBS credits for helping to coach this team. After discussion a motion was made by Chad Sterle, seconded by Chris Morque to approve Mr. Mullett to receive 11 DIBS credits on behalf of his niece’s team. However, as there are two family members in the GRAHA program, the Hoffstead family will not receive any cash payment for any DIBS shifts worked until they have fulfilled 22 DIBS credits. All members voted in favor except for Dave Kuschel who voted no.
The Board also had a discussion about modifying the election process. They formed a subcommittee which will be presenting their recommendations at a later date.
We had a discussion about hiring a girls’ program scheduler to schedule girls’ games in the same way the boys’ games are scheduled during the off season. Colleen will be discussing an offer with an individual to see if that person is interested and will bring back her recommendation at a later date.
Next we had a registrant whose initials are I.G. who broke his arm during a game. A motion was made by Chad Sterle, seconded by Chris Morque which passed unanimously to refund two-thirds of the registration fee back to his family in that he can no longer play.
The meeting adjourned at 7:20 PM.
