Treasurers report- Final Net for 2007-$9500.00, last years net (2006) was $500.00-goal was set for net profits of $4000-$5000 per season-Items purchased included-tines for tractor, air conditioner for concessions- also with help from Mr.McDermott, all W9’s for referees were obtained for tax purposes. Over the past 2 years, FCYSL is now in compliance with IRS and met the budget.

Concessions-is not always open because it is not a money maker, but it is a strain to not make it lose money. There was a $3000.00 profit due mainly to the tournaments-$500.00 from the State Rec cup.

Chris Williams reported that the league earned $3000 for pictures per season.

Harold Vernon reported on fields-fertilizer has been put out-should see a difference after it rains. Columbus fields were in good condition for the Rec cup and he inquired as to what they were doing. Columbus appealed to governor to move their drought level status. Harold plans on talking with the county to appeal to the governor for FCYSL fields.

Summer Calendar-this calendar is given to the Marshalls to make sure that people who are using the fields are supposed to be there. Tonight there was a Lightning team that was not authorized to use the fields. He said there is a way to request fields on the website.

Chris Williams introduced the present board- he then went over the accomplishments of the board and what the challenges will be for next year.

Question from a parent from AFC that wanted to know how many teams can practice on a field- Chris stated that there were plenty of slots but that to accommodate out of county residents that Lighting had opted out of the earlier slots causing more teams to practice on assigned fields. There were 70 slots not used last fall.
