  7. Old Business:

a. Tournament update:  A meeting has been called for board members to meet Saturday, May 26 at 11 am to decide if the Neil Smythe memorial tournament is still possible this year.  We need a tournament director and a date.

  1. New Business:
    1. SDTTA yearly club membership dues are $50.  The motion proposing to keep the fee of $50 until Oct 1, 2012 and then charging $25 until the end of this year was made and seconded.  The SDTTA board voted this proposal to be made effective immediately and to have this notice put on the website.  The SDTTA junior fee will be adjusted accordingly to $15.  The SDTTA family fee will be adjusted accordingly to $50.
    2. The SDTTA is aware that some members may have a hardship and are not able to pay the membership fee.  The SDTTA board has set up a protocol for these persons to contact Suresh Kanecar and he will make the arrangements known to the SDTTA board regarding the member.   This arrangement was made on past SDTTA boards and the present board members agree that this is a fair and respectful resolution for hardship cases.  There will be a posting on our website regarding this issue.
    3. James brought up the possibility of stirring up interest for Friday nights at the club by having a floating round robin.  People who are interested can sign up on the sheet posted on our board.  This is a work in progress and adjustments to make it enjoyable will evolve.  Everyone starts at the same time.  The first players who reach 11 will stop and everyone stops.  The winner goes forward and the loser backward.  For those who haven’t finished, whoever has the highest score advances (if there is a tie they play for last point and that person advances).  The Floating Round Robin will begin June 8th.  James will be the leader for now.  This will be posted on our website.
    4. James volunteered to check into a logo SDTTA table tennis shirt.  He will report back to the board his findings.

The motion to adjourn was made by Bill and it was seconded by Shariq.

The next meeting is June 19, 2012.

Respectfully Submitted,

Shelley Hardy, SDTTA Secretary
