The motion was made to approve the SDTTA Board Member minutes for April 2014 by Borko and seconded by John. The Board carried the motion.

Treasurer’s Report:  John Anderson passed out the Treasurer’s Report which has been reconciled through April 2014.

Webmaster Report/ Daryl Sterling: No report.

Membership Report: No report.

Equipment Report: The Carmel Valley Rec Center finally picked up the 2 tables they had purchased in March. That puts our current table count at 27.

Action Items:

  1. We recently purchased 5 Joola tables from Andre for a total of $4,000. We need volunteers to pick-up the tables prior to the Neil Smyth Tournament. Simon volunteered the use of his company’s truck to transport the tables in.

  2. We discussed the bad feedback we recently received from a Texas visitor that had been posted on Facebook. We discussed ways to resolve future issues and the main focus is on having any Board member who sees a “new” face at the club to approached that person and welcome them and explain how our club operates.

  3. Borko requested table tennis balls for his Saturday training sessions. The Board approved the purchase of 2 gross (144 balls per gross) of balls.

  4. We need volunteers to help setup tables, mats, etc for the Neil Smyth Tournament on Friday night (til 10pm) and to break down all equipment and put them away on Sunday night (til 7pm).

  5. The Board would like to evaluate Atilla’s performance, after the Neil Smyth Tournament, to see if any improvements can be made or even to look at bringing someone else in to run the tournament. We understand the enormous amount of work and organization required to setup and run a tournament of this caliber and Atilla has proven himself in the past.

  6. Borko talked to Michelle about how we can dispose of some of our non-repairable barriers. She said we could use the dumpster along the side of the building.

  7. The equipment/paddle swap meet has been delayed until after the Neil Smyth Tournament. The date of the event has been tabled until the next Board meeting.

  8. We discussed pro-rating our membership dues, but decided to leave the current policy in place.


The motion to adjourn was made by James and seconded by Bob at 8:25pm.

The next meeting is June 10th at 7:00pm.

Respectfully Submitted,

Bob Koch, SDTTA Secretary
