Review of minutes from previous meeting was postponed until they were posted again for review of all Board members.

Behnam indicated that the Club's Financial Statement should not be shared with other clubs.
Dennis indicated that the Financial Statement goes to the Facility Manager Berenice once a year, he also reported that payments were issued for the T-shirts, Borko's gift and balls for the upcoming Seniors tournament, as agreed last meeting. A check from the facility was received and deposited ($4,500).

Volunteers needed for this coming Sunday, to help with the Senior's tournament.

Steve indicated that 2 more tables need to be sold (1 green an 1 blue), he also recommended not to purchase any more of the current nets and look for better quality ones.

After discussing the issue at length, a motion was approved to subsidize our coaches $50 per session (1-2 hours) once a week each (3 coaches), for a trial period of 6 weeks. Perry abstained from voting. Coaches will charge $5 per session to all players attending.

A visitor Mr. J. Lawson representing "al racquet sports" spoke about integrating table tennis and our club in a "cross over" model to expand the sport and introduce table tennis to other racquet sports players.

A reminder by Perry about not wearing white shirts at playing.

Meeting was adjourned at 8 pm.
