Minutes for June 8, 2017 Board of Directors Meeting

The June 2017 meeting was called to order at 7:00 PM by Dennis Logie, President. Board members present were Dennis, Pete Lewis, Pat Michael, Bill Picht, Dave Reck, Angelo Rizzato, and Hiro Tarumi. Absent: Steve Bowerman, Rob Weiss. Guest: Jerry Marsh.


1. The May 2017 Board Meeting Minutes were approved as written. Minutes are sent to all Directors, posted to the Club website, and sent to Donna O’Farrell for historical recording.

2. The May 2017 Treasurer’s Report was approved as submitted by Treasurer, Angelo Rizzato. The report showed 16 new memberships, hat and shirt sales, tournament entries, and donations.

3. June Tournament – Jerry Marsh, Tournament Director, reported a total of 15 teams have applied. They would split into 2 brackets of 6 teams and 1 bracket of 3 teams. Jerry will try and get a 4th or even a 5 and 6th team for the 3rd bracket to better even out the skill level. With the low number of teams, the tournament will most likely not have games on Thursday and Friday, June 22-23. An effort will be made at Day Play, the NCSSA website, and with phone calls to get additional teams. The low response of tournament applications might be due to the increasing traffic in the area and the high hotel rates.

4. Club Shirts – Pete reports the initial order of shirts is almost sold out. Another order is in to include polos, crews, and sweatshirts. The order is due next week.

5. Memorial Gifts – Sometimes a family will mention the Club as a suggested way to donate in memory of a member that has passed away. Such was the case when Paul Amaya and Mike Vigo recently passed away and the Club received donations in their honor. Angelo has written letters of appreciation to be sent to the donators and letters recognizing the donations for the bereaved families.

6. San Jose Giants – Angelo has negotiated with the San Jose Giants organization for the Club to attend the July 20 game against the Rancho Cucamonga Dodgers. For $25 members sit in a reserved section, get dinner, beverage, and $2 beer. A sign up list will soon be available at the fields.

7. Change of Bank – It’s done! Angelo has transferred our account from Wells Fargo to Chase. With Chase we will have no fees, free checks with a $1500 balance, and $300 for signing up.

8. One Pitch Tournament Director – The 1 Pitch Tournament this year will be on Labor Day, Monday September 4. Hiro, Pete, and Rob will again co-direct this fun event with help from Bill Pitch. Dennis will call to make sure we have the fields reserved.

9. Holiday Party – Pete Kutch, the Holiday Party Coordinator, will soon be starting the party committee meetings. Pete is considering moving the date back to the 1st Saturday of December but keeping the venue at the San Carlos Community Center with the same caterer as last year. Pete has invited 2 additional members to join the committee.

10. Team Sponsorship – Pat reports that the 5 teams contacted for sponsorship for 2017 have replied: Gold Rush 80s, Chiefs 80s, State Roofing Systems 75s, Blues 65s, and Turn 2 50s. Pat will need to go through each of the rosters to verify all players are Club members. The stipend will be sent to the qualified teams after the June tournament.

11. BBQ status – The Board decided it would be best to have our own BBQ for events at the Red Morton fields to compliment the one we already have. The Board will shop for a new BBQ and is looking at storage options.

12. Round Table – Day Play is moving to Hoover School on June 13 until August due to the Red Morton fields being used for Summer Camps. Hiro with help will be moving all the equipment there. There is a light weight fence at McGarvey that needs to be moved further out for the tournament. The City has agreed to move it. Pete says that there is no Night Play on July 18.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:35 PM. The next monthly Board Meeting is scheduled for Thursday July 6, 2017.

Respectfully submitted by Pat Michael, Club Secretary
