Minutes from October 2007 meeting were reviewed. Need to correct Registrars Report section, BU12 team breakdown. Report ACCEPTED.
FIRST AID EQUIPMENT
Discussed the need for first aid equipment and the specific supplies that would be included. U6 teams could utilize a first aid kit kept in the snack bar as they are only at fields on Saturdays.
Motion: Spend $800 for first aid kits to cover 60 teams excluding U6. Passed.
CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS UPDATE
We have an estimate of $20,000 to pave the road from Learning Lane to the water tower as well as the parking area behind the goal on Field # 3. Someone may be willing to help PYS financially with this project. A decision is needed soon as this needs to be completed before it gets too cold. Belief is that we could get this done as part of town project and reimburse town in the spring as new registration money comes in and CD matures. Discussed outstanding lease. Some feel we should not invest more until lease issues resolved. Expect to be able to get help with painting of the parking spaces.
Motion: Move forward on paving project allocating $20,000 for this project. Account to be determined later when payment is required. Passed.
Lisa Stoyle reporting. Need to decide if we are going to spend $1,390 on Revs tickets that are used for coaches' appreciation and also part of raffles. Need to pay $280 for Porta Potty vandalism. Cow Bingo money being held until next year. Snack bar profit is $800 vs 2,100 last year. We have excess inventory related to rainouts. Suggestion made to contact H.S. snack bar to sell excess and also to contact vendor, Pepsi.
Motion: Purchase 4 Revs season tickets for $1,390. Passed.
Ann Shea not present. GU10 and BU10 are expected to be redrafted because at least one coach wants teams rebalanced. GU12, GU14, BU14 closed.

REF COORDINATOR REPORT
Mr. Ng not present and no business to discuss.
U16/U18/U19 SPRING TEAMS
Discussed PYS withdrawing from PKH and fielding it's own teams. Concern raised about having tough numbers in an age group (like 26) and the increased likelihood of having to not accept late signups. Majority feeling is we should be able to go solo and supplement U18/U19 teams with younger players if necessary.
Motion: Withdraw Pembroke from PKH for U16/U18/U19 play. Passed.
Voted on 2008 board members and committees. See attached listing.
