  • Tom Berns was invited to the meeting to provide the Board with a summary of the Blue Book activities.  Berns stated that we still have five advertisers who have not paid for their ad for the 2004 – 2005 book.  Advertisers for all the outstanding fees have been contacted and the money is expected to be collected in the near future.  The Blue Book committee has sold ads totaling $2,625.  The cost of the book was $1,425.  The net profit is $1,200.  Berns informed the Board that the schools are extremely pleased with the Book and use it in the tournament selection process.  The Board thanked Berns and his committee for all their fine efforts.

  • Andy Larkins outlined all the activities the entertainment committee sponsored and how the fund of $500 was spent this year.  There were three hospitalities of $100 each at Blue Book advertiser locations held on separate Friday nights during the season.  The committee also spent $200 on the last Friday night of the season to honor Don Schneider in his retirement.  This event was held at Kelly Whelan’s personal residence.  The Board feels the committee did an excellent job for this new activity and the participation should grow more and more each year.  The Board thanked Larkins and his committee.  The Board also discussed the possibility of holding a banquet at the end of the season to honor those officials who are retiring.  Awards could also be presented at this event.
