San Diego Table Tennis Association Board Meeting February 11, 2014 Balboa Park Activity Center

This meeting is open to all members of the SDTTA.

 Call to order 7:05 pm by James.

SDTTA Board Members Present: Bob Koch, James Kahn, Mark Adelman, Behnam Kazemi, Peter Sanidad and John Anderson.

SDTTA Board Member(s) absent:  None

SDTTA Member(s) Present: Simon Lee

Communications not on agenda have a limit of 3 minutes.

Treasurer’s Report:  John discussed procedures on how he would like to have bank deposits done. Only having one or two members making deposits and having as many cash and Pay Pal transactions is our ultimate goal in order to simplify bookkeeping. John talked about having better cash accountability and getting/giving receipts for all transactions whenever possible.

Webmaster Report/ Daryl Sterling – No report.

Membership Report – No report.

Equipment Report:  The club currently has 30 tables on hand with numerous tables needing wheel and other repairs. Mark received a request from the Carmel Valley Rec Center to purchase 2 tables at $600 each. They have a meeting on March 5th to get the funding approved. James is currently working on getting some new Joola tables at last year’s prices.

Action Items:

  1. James is having 90 shirts imprinted with the new club logo. Pacific Apparel will doing the silk screening at $4.00 a shirt a one-time setup fee of $100. The goal at this time is to sell the shirts at a break-even price of $20..

  2. The Neil Smyth tournament has been approved by the BPAC committee and is scheduled for May 24h and 25th. We had a conference call with Atilla about the tournament structure and there was concern that there were no doubles events but rather “3 Player Team” events. Atilla will research it further.

  3. Friday nights have been lacking in attendance and excitement, so a suggestion was made to have a potluck doubles event and have teams chosen randomly. We’ll see how this plays out over the upcoming weeks.

  4. The club will be closed for about 20 of the 30 days in March, so we will be looking to get some “friendship” tournaments scheduled with local clubs in the general area. Behnam will be in charge of organizing team events and has one scheduled for March 16th at Westminster to play the Zaman Table Tennis Club.

  5. Barney Reed and D.J. Alto expressed interest in coaching at the club. We will put the info up on the website to see if there is any interest by our members. We would also like to have prospective coaches present their ideas and goals on what they would like to accomplish with their clinics.

  6. James made a motion to have Simon Lee on the board. Mark 2nd the motion and it was passed unanimously by the board.

  7. Bob brought up suggestion of having a Hall Of Fame page on our website. There is currently a plaque in the foyer for listing all members of the SDTTA Hall Of Fame, but there is nothing on the website. Bob will research it more and talk with Daryl to see if we can add this to the website.


The motion to adjourn was made by Mark and seconded by Peter at 8:16pm.

The next meeting is March 8th at 12:00pm at Simon Burgers at 4545 La Jolla Village Drive.

Respectfully Submitted,

Bob Koch, SDTTA Secretary
