under budget - spent $85.
· HOF: met the last week of September - selections were made - Gary Brickman, Gary
Evans and the 89-90 basketball team. There will only be three new inductions a
year from now on, so a new wall display will have to be made.
Planning to substitute individual plaques for each inductee so they are
all equal sizes. Will
be checking into that and will discuss at next meeting.
Football restrooms: Seth has checked with Mr. Dorethy but nothing has been
done. Carothers suggested having the character champions get together and
paint the bathrooms. Possibly they could be power washed by senior night and
painted by next season. Brad Begeman suggested asking Ryan Kennedy since he has
the equipment ready to go.
· Basketball cheerleaders: Peggy Duesterhaus reported that they have always been allowed
to compete, they just haven't chosen to for a few years.
The athletic dept. will cover their fees. This item
will be removed from Sports Boosters’ agenda.

will remain in their position.

club may handle the. Matt Woodworth says they have agreed to do it, but not officially.
o honorary coach head - Richard will ask Paul Bealor. Honorary coach
committee also needs to get the snacks - Richard and Seth will cover that.

· Colt Classic hospitality room: asking for $50
- Donna Jansen made motion, Peggy Duesterhaus 2nd, motion
· CD up for renewal: (just one)
Klusmeyer made motion to renew, Brad Begeman 2nd.
· Uniform schedule: Girls basketball
will be listed as one unit rather than Varsity and JV as they often move girls
around. Boys want to buy 15 new for Varsity and pass the old to the JV. Previously we used a five year
schedule, Seth has consolidated it to a four year schedule.
Seth and Julie McAllister suggested that the teams
give the sports boosters half the money up front and set a limit of $1000 each.
Dollar amounts will be negotiated by sport, since basketball uniforms are more
expensive, needing 2 per player.
· Boys' basketball uniforms – Keith Carothers: They definitely need new JV
uniforms. He would rather pass
old uniforms down to JV so it is more of an honor for the varsity.
The cost is $3200 total. Motion to pay made by
Susan Blickhan, 2nd by Sherri Fuller.
· Middle School Gym scoreboard – Is basically dead. Light bulbs smoke when moved
around. Price for 2 new LED
scoreboards is $5400. The athletic department has enough to pay for them, but asking for
$1000 from sports boosters to help with. Julie McAllister made motion to
approve, Marcia Cornwell 2nd. Motion carried.
Matt Woodworth: Varsity football is 4-3 JV has won 1-2.
The last two games – at Carrollton and West Central at home won’t be
easy, but should be winnable.
Hopefully they will make the playoffs with a 6-3 record and have a better
draw in the playoffs. Hoping for
injured players to be back next week.
JV games have been cancelled because of numbers of ineligible
