November 2007 meeting minutes

Pardeeville Boys Club Meeting November 7th, 2007

Those in attendance: Russ Knutson, Judy Thurston, Vicki Griepentrog, Chuck Wais, Shawn Mecum and Randy Schulte.

We finished up talking about any football issues that we want to look into next year. Russ stated we should think about getting some new helmets and Chuck thought is would be nice to get some square practice pads. They are easier for the smaller kids to grab onto while practicing. There was talk about requiring all the kids to have practice pants so that the game pants will last longer. It was also brought up that we should try to have equal number of 5th & 6th grade parents as coaches for next year. There will be further discussion on these issues once football comes around again next year.


Basketball sign ups took place during the meeting. We had a good number of people show up. Russ brought a warm up shirt for us to see. They are $25 each and only come in adult sizes. They are blue and gold with the Boys club basketball logo embroidered on the front corner. He also had sample bags made up. The smaller ones are $25 and the larger ones are $31. They will be available of the kids/parents to order.

Young Bulldogs will begin on Dec 1st at the High school. Sign-ups are that morning starting at 7:30am and the first practice is from 8:00-10:00am. The registration fee is $25 and that includes a reversible jersey. Chad Hoff will be running this program this year.

Gym times are very limited right now as the elementary gym is off limits until 12/21 due to the drama clubs lighting and the K-5 Christmas program.

Shawn and Chuck went to the meeting about the basketball league that is trying to be formed. There are going to be 8 teams for 4th grade, 9 teams for 5th grade and 7 teams for 6th grade. Some of the schools that are going to be involved with this are: WI Dells, Portage, Montello, Westfield, Waupun, Rio, Cambria, Randolph, Pardeeville and maybe Poynette. These games will be played on Saturdays and every team is guaranteed 2 games. Each team is going to be required to pay $35 to the home team as they have to provide their own refs. No concessions will be done. Everyone thought is sounded like a good idea to get into as this will give the kids a lot more playing time than just the few tournaments each season. Russ will help take care of finding refs for our games once we know the dates of our home games. We will still pay $15 to each ref per game.

Meeting was adjourned around 7:00pm. Next meeting is Dec 5th at 6:00pm at the High School.
