Paul gave us a RAGE Invitational update. There were a total of 135 teams, and RAGE had a net profit of $15,167.28. He suggested the 2017 Tournament Director start preparing now.
He went over the fact that our board needs a contract – one to protect our board and Jose.
We made a motion to fill Paul Miravete’s position as Chairperson. The motion was made to call Lance Jackson for this position, and the motion was passed. Paul/Mike. PASSED.
We made a motion for Paul to serve as Vice Chair, and the motion was passed. Paul/Mike. PASSED.
It was suggested we pay our technical director $100/team/month (12 teams). A motion was made to pay Jose $1,000/month for the next 3 months (April, May, June) until the contract is set. This motion was passed. Mike/Paul. PASSED.
Karen would like to run for Secretary and Donalee would like to run as Treasurer for RAGE. They will be in attendance at our annual meeting in May.
Vice Chair Report:
Mike Terry mentioned that coaches need gear replaced. Jose told coaches to make a list of what they need and to send it to him.
Report from Jose Gaona, Technical Director:
He talked about the need to set a date for soccer tryouts. He wants to try for May 18, 19 and 20, if allowed. If not, he’ll plan for June 1, 2 and 3.
Jose recommended we switch our uniforms from Under Armour to Puma.
Jose also went over his meeting up north. Many people said they loved our tournament. He highly recommended we pay attention to scholarships and that RAGE players should be getting these. We were reminded that it’s in our bylaws for RAGE to give scholarships.
Report from Dave at Wells Fargo:
He explained if we use Wells Fargo, we would have automatic billing right on the RAGE website, the fees would be more competitive (about 1% lower), and we would have more consistent revenue with monthly payments. A motion was made to look into Wells Fargo, and the motion was passed. Mike/Mary. PASSED.
A date and place were set for our annual board meeting. It is scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 5 at 7:30 PM in the Habibian Building at DSU.
