A. Minutes of the March 7, 2022 meeting, having been emailed to all, were Board approved.
B. Treasurer/Financial Report was Board approved.
C. 2022 Sponsors: All CSSA sponsors have either already paid or have committed, and we have enough sponsors to cover the Skip Wells League for the first time.
D. Jerseys: Norm Thiem gave an update. Orders are underway, although button shortages have delayed production somewhat. The Patriot League jerseys are complete, with exception of Premier Collision, which will be ready for the current week’s game. Some teams in other leagues have their jerseys already, and the rest are in the works.
E. League Fee Collection: Norm asked for feedback on the method used for the Spring season fee collection. Issues were discussed, particularly the challenge of assigning payments for multiple teams when a player has given one check to one manager for fees for all teams he is playing on.
F. Possible Replacement for TeamPages and Constant Contact: Dan Bonham presented the cost figures for current website and database services. He is exploring alternative options and will get quotes/proposals for further review by the BOD.
G. New Facebook Page for CSSA: Dick O’Connor has created a new Facebook page featuring photos, videos and writeups on players. There is a link on the “Links” page of TeamPages and an announcement banner at the top of CSSAs TeamPages home page with links to the Facebook page. All players, sponsors and fans are encouraged to join the page.
H. 80 UP CLUB: This special group of better-than-80 year-old CSSA players will soon be featured on TeamPages with a list of members, and articles by Marty Aftewicz as well. An anonymous donor has purchased deluxe carry bags for all members of the 80 UP CLUB to honor their continued participation in CSSA into their eighties. The current members are: Ron Wakefield, Bob Maranghi, Bill Hanzlick, Jerry King, Nick Scivilli, Ken Toy, Pete Berger, Bill Degitz, Steve Scully, Benny Hendricks, Howard Gunn, Carl Brown, Les Taylor and Howard Schoen.
I. 2022 Golf Tournament: The 2022 CSSA Charity Golf Tournament will take place Thursday, June 23, 2022 at Towne Lake Hills Golf Club. The tournament will be a 9:00 a.m. shotgun start. Tom Cameron will take charge of the event. The board recommended volunteers to assist with in securing some hole sponsorships in advance, at a rate of $100 per hole. We will also need help with sign-in and the putting contest on the day of the tournament. There will be a 50/50 raffle. The tournament is expected to gross $14,200, with expenses of $7,450 for a net profit of $6,750. Flyers will be posted on TeamPages as soon as online registration form and online payment capture are established.
The meeting adjourned at 8:02 P.M.
The next BOD meeting will be Monday, May 2, 2022 at 6:30 p.m.
