November 9, 2004

Approved: November 23, 2004


Attendance: Chris McDonald, Tina Albano, Glennice Flynn, Larry Forrest and Michael D’Agostino. Also present were Jay Fenlason, Susan Gorman, Darcey Walulak and Eddie Pessolano.

Bills: There were no bills.

Director’s Report: Jay gave an update on the following:

Memorial Park:



Instructional Soccer/Darcey Walulak: Darcey felt that the instructional program in the past has always been a “free-for-all”. She had some suggestions for the future for what she felt was a better approach She presented the board with a handout with guidelines and a format for future coaches. Chris asked for clarification on a recent e-mail sent by Darcey with reference to equipment. She felt it was in poor condition and their was a lack of it. Jay mentioned that past coaches have never communicated any insufficiencies with equipment. This could have been corrected in the beginning of the season had Darcey notified Jay.  Glennice asked Darcey to put together an optimal equipment package for the Kindergarten program. There was a conflict and the soccer balls were not handed out to the participants. In the future all the balls given out to the instructional programs will be handed out at the start of the program.

Sports Coordinator: Old notes and suggestions were reviewed. Jay is still waiting for feedback from past coordinators. Tina suggested tabling this matter until all the information is in. 

E-mail/meeting issues: Clarification is needed as to what can/can not be handled through e-mails. Per Glennice, an open meeting law binds us and therefore no communication can be discussed through e-mails.

New Business:

Larry made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 8:50 P.M. Tina seconded. All in favor and so voted.


Next meeting:  November 23, 2004 Tuesday at 7:00P.M.
