October Minutes

Grand American on Saturday made $705. The dates and format for Grand American will be presented after the Sacramento tournament meeting next month.

County Open made $290. Scott Anger donated the t-shirts thru his company Sanger Homes (if only SH had a website). Mish donated some of the lunch materials. Some members felt our Class C County open was a valid event so members could keep up their officials rating and a good opportunity to groom new officials.

There was some discussion on having four intraclub tournaments. Various formats and dates for each tournament would be determined by each intraclub tournament chairman.

Club Positions

We have elections at the November meeting. Steve Dachauer is stepping down as Public Relations and Learn To Ski Days. Larry Conner has stepped up to run for this position. Scott Graham is stepping down as Membership. This position has nobody running for this position so far. John Collins will run for Treasurer again. Scot Anger and Kevin Bishop will run for Tournaments. John Gambello will run for Facilities. All Board positions are open for new nominations to any member interested.


We have dues, work hours and copy of AWSA membership due at the November Meeting. If all three are not turned in to Scott Graham or John Collins by December 15  your membership is automatically terminated. To get the $100 discount you must have all of the above turned in as well as attending at least 3 Club Meetings.
Mish has volunteered her home for the November Meeting. It will be Sunday, November 4 at 4 p.m. We will have a BBQ with potluck side dishes and desserts. More details forth coming.
