Balboa Park Activity Center

  This meeting is open to all members of the SDTTA. Call to order 7:05pm by James. SDTTA Board Members Present: Bob Koch, Behnam Kazemi, John Anderson, Borko Dragojlovic, Mark Adelman, James Kahn and Simon Lee. SDTTA Board Member(s) absent: None. SDTTA Member(s) Present: Angie Bengtsson and Earl Alto. Communications not on agenda have a limit of 3 minutes. After a few minor changes to last month's Board meeting minutes, the motion was made to approve the SDTTA Board Member minutes for July 2014 by Mark and seconded by James. The Board carried the motion. Treasurer’s Report:  None. Webmaster Report/ Daryl Sterling: No report. Membership Report: Our current paid membership count is. Equipment Report: Our current table count is at 30. Action Items:
  1. Earl discussed getting the Juniors program up and running and to ensure it stays on track, that the progress of the kids be monitored and certain goals be set (ratings). Also discussed was investing in
your better players and one of the ways would be to sponsor these players to the National and 5 Star tournaments. Earl said that the "Learning Tree" has availability of equipment and people to assist us in any way possible, if we ever need them. An inter-club event was scheduled for September 6th, between SDTTA and the Learning Tree, to be played at the Sorrento Valley location.
  1. Behnam did not approve last month's Board meeting minutes because he would like a breakdown of how all members vote on any particular item. Behnam motioned to have it annotated in the minutes the results of how each Board member votes. James seconded the motion and it was passed by a 4-2-1 vote.
  2. John resigned as Treasurer but wants to stay on the Board. The selection of a new Treasurer was tabled until the next Board meeting.
  3. The new club shirts arrived with the SDTTA logo printed on the back. The shirts will be selling for $20 each.
  4. The potluck picnic is scheduled for September 13th, along with the equipment swap meet. The event will go from 11:30am to 2:00pm.
  5. It was brought up once again on how we can make Friday's more exciting at the club. One idea was to have an inter-club competition with the Sorrento Valley (Learning Tree) club. The location of the event would rotate, between clubs, on a weekly basis. Both clubs will work out further details.
  6. Bob brought up the idea of waiving the $5 fee for non-members who would like to play in the Thursday round-robin event. After much discussion, the idea was dropped.
  7. We currently have 8 "new" Joola tables in storage at City College and need to go onsite and inspect the tables and release them from liability from any damage that may incur during storage.
The motion to adjourn was made by Mark and seconded by Borko at 8:30pm.   The next meeting is September 9th at 7:00pm.   Respectfully Submitted,   Bob Koch, SDTTA Secretary
