Minutes for January 3, 2019 Board of Directors Meeting

The January 2019 meeting was called to order at 8:40 PM by President, Dennis Logie. The meeting followed the Annual Membership meeting. Board members present were Dennis, Steve Bowerman, Rick Bowlby, Pete Lewis, Pat Michael, Bill Picht, Dave Reck, Angelo Rizzato, and Hiro Tarumi.


1. The December 2018 Board of Directors 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 December 2018 Treasurer’s Report was approved as submitted by Treasurer, Angelo Rizzato. The report wrapped up the Holiday party costs and reflected income from 2019 dues payments.

3. Election of Officers – As per the Club’s By-Laws, the 1st order of business in the January meeting is to elect the Officers of the Board of Directors. This includes the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary positions. The 2019 Officers of the Board of Directors are: President – Dennis Logie, Vice President – Steve Bowerman, Treasurer – Angelo Rizzato, Secretary – Pat Michael.

4. Review of the Annual Meeting suggestions:

• Recognition of a standout volunteer similar to the Most Improved Player recognition. The Board will consider at the February meeting.

• Purchase a new drag screen for Hawes. The Board will assess the current screen and report at the February meeting.

• Fields need new pitching screens. Two screens will be purchased to replace the Day and Night Play screens.

• Closing of Hawes Field. Dennis will look into it.

5. Winter League (Saturdays) – Hiro reports that the league is going well but there is still a concern with younger players on teams that play older teams. Hiro is trying to keep the parity of the teams as best he can. The ball policy installed that allows older teams to use hotter balls is working well.

6. Blood Drive for Members – not discussed

7. Website Progress – This might be a dead issue since the problem does not seem significant enough to warrant any action.

8. Fall/Winter Night League update – Pete is talking to San Carlos. He will provide more detail at the February meeting.

9. Inventory of Snack Shack – Angelo did an inventory and it hasn’t changed since the last one. We now need to figure out how to get rid of the useless things in there.

The meeting adjourned at 9:00 PM when the VMSC superintendent told us the Center was closing.

The next monthly Board Meeting is scheduled for Thursday February 7, 2019 at 7:00PM.

Respectfully submitted by Pat Michael, Club Secretary
