Pardeeville Boys Club Minutes December 2007

The meeting was called to order at 6:00pm by President, Russ Knutson. Those in attendance were, Russ Knutson, Judy Thurston, Chris Johnson, Vicki Griepentrog, Randy Schulte and Shawn Mecum

Basketball Updates:

After taking a year off the Young Bulldog Program is back up and running. Chad Hoff is running the program. We had 11 kids sign up on December 1st with 4 more signing up after that. We feel that this program is off to a great start.

The 5th grade team this is year has 17 boys signed up to play. Pam Bauer has asked that she split the boys into two teams for tournaments. She also was asking for two extra tournaments for the 5th graders. It was approved that she can split the teams as she sees fit and 2 extra tournaments were approved for them. The 5th graders will have 6 tournaments total with one being the Pardeeville tournament on January 27th.

It was discussed to make a $100 donation to the Village of Wyocena for the use of their gym for practices.

Basketball Tournaments:

All games will be played in the high school or middle school gyms. We will not be using the elementary school at all this year. The entry fee for our tournaments will be $125. Russ Knutson has already posted the information on the WisHoops website. We are hoping that the times of the tournaments will run roughly from 9a-3p each day.

Saturday, January 12th – 8th grade – still looking for 1 team
Sunday, January 13th – 7th grade - FULL
Saturday, January 26th – 6th grade – FULL
Sunday, January 27th – 4th & 5th grade – Both FULL

Concessions will be run from the small concession stand this year. We will have a smaller menu this year, hotdogs, BBQ, nachos, pizza, candy, soda, Gatorade and water. Shawn Mecum and Chris Johnson will be working on getting the concession food. We will need parents to help work when their children aren’t playing, also looking at paying a couple of people to work when parents aren’t available.

Russ Knutson is working on getting officials for all of the games. Russ will take care of getting the trophies and medals for the tournaments. There will be trophies for the 6th, 7th & 8th grade tournaments. The 4th & 5th grade tournaments will have medals for all participants.

It was brought to the Boys Club attention that the School is looking to charge a facility use charge to Clubs and Organizations to use the school facility. Russ and Vicki will be looking into what that means for the Boys Club and when this will start.

Meeting was adjourned.

The next meeting is set for Wednesday, January 2nd at 6:00pm at the High School Cafeteria.
