•   Jason Poole
•   Frank Grimes
•   Dean Bingham
•   Josh Knight
•   Dana Vicich
•   Randy Bruemmer
•   Tom Matesevac


1) Frank’s & Bean’s Tuesday Nights
•   Start date:  April 20, 2010, Follow the same schedule as the doubles league.
•   $5 entry fee, optional Ace ($1) & CTPs (2-$2/CTP) = $5, CTPs will be designated as Prize Fund & Club Enhancements.  The payout will be the top 30% with a minimum of $5 for last cash.  $0.50 from each entry fee will pay the hot round of the day.
•   Handling of non-rated players:  If you do not have a PDGA rating, your first 3 rounds at the handicap leagues will be free to establish your handicap.  You will only be allowed to participate in the Ace Fund, CTPs, and Bag Tags.  Another option to acquire your handicap; if a club officer is willing to play those three rounds outside of league night. After you accumulate more rounds your rating will be taken from your best 3 of your last 5 rounds.
•   Frank Grimes and Dean Bingham will be running it.
•   We have decided to stick with pen and paper for now until we progress with leagues.  Need for a computer will be addressed at a later date.

2) Discontinuum Club Challenge on 3/28/10 in Hoffman Estates
•   We need commitments from members.  We didn’t realize it landed on the last day of winter leagues.  If you do not have a lot vested in going to the last league come out and represent J-Town.  You will find information on the message board under Leagues & Tourneys.  It is a free, non-sanctioned event.  There will be three other clubs competing:  Discontinuum, Fox Valley, and Streamwood.
•   J-Town will be responsible for setting-up a few of the temp holes.  Since they have expanded to 2 courses to include us, it would be nice to show up with great numbers.  J-Town needs to bring a few extra baskets.  We are looking for some good baskets we could borrow from members.

3) Ice Bowl Review
•   Ice Bowl was a hit!  Thank you players and of course everyone that was involved.  88 players and sponsors raised $3559 & 300 lbs. of food.  All proceeds went to the Morning Star Mission.  See you next year!
4) Financials, Member Count (see attached)
5) Inner-Club Team Challenges – To be discussed at a later date
6) Free Club Member PDGA Tournament
•   Ray Hill is going to contact Brett Comincioli about setting a July 9, 2010 date for a members-only sanctioned tournament.  Details:  9:30 AM tee-off, 2 rounds (Highland, Channahon), 2 divisions (Pro/Am).  This is simply a perk for club members to accumulate points and ratings.  The Pro division will have a $10 entry fee that will all go to the Pro purse.  We are going to work on getting trophies for 1st place in each division.
7)  Addressing Lost/Stolen Bag Tags
•   $5 first instance, $15 second instance, hopefully there are no more than two.
8 ) Member Concerns/Feedback
•   Address working relationship with Mokena
•   Club working with area schools
Motion to adjourn @ 7:39 PM, seconded

J-Town Disc Golf Club Meeting
11/14/11 5:00 PM-- Meeting #14

McDonald's on Jefferson in Shorewood.

Meeting called to order, 5:00

Members in attendance:
Frank Grimes
Jason Poole
Dean Bingham
Ray Hill
 

1) Financial Report
(see attached)

2) Handicap League (recap)
* Discussed adding a cut off time for sign-ups to accommodate all the score card preparation and inputting on the laptop.

* It was voted on that the "Club Only CTP" was not effective in raising attendance and will not be offered next year. 

* Awareness that a better job has to be done advertising the fact that you do not have to be a J-Town Disc Golf Club member to participate in Handicap Leagues. 


3) J-Town logo on club merchandise
* The board went through a catalog of options for Club.  After much reasoning, the board compiled a list of what will be ordered.  Jason Poole will be placing the order and we will reevaluate sizes and colors as soon as we gather more feedback from the club.  We will make available as soon as possible all merchandise ordered.  Starting with a mix of Orange and Blue Shirts, Polos, Hooded Sweatshirts, T-Shirts, and Dry Fits with the JTown club logo.  These will be used to raise more funds for the club.     

4) Club Challenge vs. Fox Valley
* Thor Batchelor was appointed to captain the Club Challenge with Fox Valley Disc Golf Club on 11.19.11

* Thor was unable to make the meeting so details of the challenge were casually discussed as a backup plan in case things fell through with the appointed captain.

* As a backup it was decided Dave K will serve as a captain for J-Town.


5) Ice Bowl
Ice Bowl merchandise winnings from 2011 and what to do what them

* Thor has all the details from Icebowl.com so this topic will be moved to the next meeting.  It's understood that J-Town will have access to Ice Bowl merchandise for finishing in the top 10 of all 2011 Ice Bowl totals. 

6) Open Q&A

* Frank Grimes unveiled his 2012 Ice Bowl flier that Jesse Sanz and himself put together.  Work and preparation have already begun on what promises to be a great event for the entire J-Town Community.  Donations are already being sought and accepted.  Please contact Frank Grimes for any and all contributions.

Meeting Adjourned, 6:30
