Deckers for balls- getting 40 dozen (around $1600 total) Katie Piper for contact. Can bring to next meeting to hand out.
10U- needs more funds for tournaments, asking club for some, but wanting to make it the same for each team. Try to set a slated scale up since the older teams are more expensive than the younger teams. Teams can submit expenses and see where they’re at compared to club expenses.
Banners- club will cover the expense. Cori setting up pictures.
Pay for State for each team that is going.
Club not keeping 10% back and giving it back to teams- – give it back to teams. l
