  1. Frederick representing NCTTA has asked to use our facility for their college tournament on February 2nd during our hours.  They will leave a few rows for our members to use and as the day goes on more tables will be available.  The board voted yes to allow NCTTA to have their tournament.
  2. Kiet volunteered to access the QUALCOMM website to see what type of sponsorship we may be able to get for our club.  SDTTA is open to sponsorships.
  3. Frederick submitted a final SDTTA Mission Statement as follows:  The Mission of SDTTA is to foster a community of table tennis enthusiasts; a place where players of all levels can discover their passion for the sport, develop their skills and health, and compete regularly in a friendly atmosphere.  James made a motion to accept this Mission statement seconded by Borko.  The vote was unanimous.
  4. Each year SDTTA fills out a BPAC form to reserve the meeting room for our monthly board meetings.  I filled out the form and wrote a check for $100 to City of San Diego today.
Old Business:  James will contact Mike Meier who was referee for the Neil Smyth Memorial Table Tennis Tournament and see what information was given to the USTTA.  It seems the ratings were not posted or adjusted correctly.  He will also contact Ron to help with this problem. The motion to adjourn was made by James and seconded by Borko. The next meeting is February 15, 2013. Respectfully Submitted, Shelley Hardy, SDTTA Secretary
