· Tax Return –
o Yarwood completed our 2016 tax return and will be e-filing on November 2015 along with a $200 filing fee.
· General Bucket –
o the general bucket is currently at 87K. We are not at the point to develop a budget for next year. However, the goal is to set aside 25K for uniforms for 18-19 school year. I would like to vote on this.
o Troy motions to move $25,000 of budget to ear-mark for uniforms, second by Daniella.
· Projects –
o I have had a preliminary meeting with the track and cross country coaches about the purchase of a timing system. à Track coaches will be at 12/11/17 booster meeting to review proposal.

· Overall membership update (528 fall athletes, 150 Boosters members)
· Review open actions

· Holiday Store-
o Due to the timing & limitations of us offering a "store" we are just covering costs & making small margins on this year’s Shoppe. Maybe $4-10 per item. The idea is to not lose momentum. I have also attached a cost sheet - our commitment to all of these items is around $3500 - the rest of the items are PRE-ORDER NO RISK.
o Fullfillment - I will volunteer to hold a pick up at the HS or other location for holiday items.
