The Board of Director of the Lincoln Land High School Hockey League met on Thursday September 8, 2011. At the VFW Northenders. The following members were in attendance President Gary Wells, Vice o-President Dave Ryan, Treasurer Janet Shures, Rochester Wayne Shures and Shannon Elliot, Dan Wellman, Jeff Rocco, Joe Saucier â€“ SHG Rob Olson, Jennifer â€“ Decatur, Tim Dixon â€“ Glenwood, Doug Nelson â€“ Springfield.
Gary called the meeting to order at 6:40 pm.
Gary told the group that we did not have minutes from the August meeting, as Dave Ryanâ€™s computer which contained the notes had a hard drive failure. A motion was to dispense with the reading of minutes. This was made by Doug and seconded by Wayne.
Moving on Gary asked Janet for a treasurerâ€™s report. Janet reported
Hickory Point Bank
HCU Checking Acct.
Moving on Gary went over player/team headcounts. At this point it was unclear as to whether or not Rochester would have a team. Decatur was going to be putting 2 teams, Champaign would have one team. This would mean there are 3 or 4 teams from the Springfield area.
Gary reported there was one change to the by-laws. We changed the number games needed to participate in the play l offs. The change changed from 8 games to 50% of the league games played.
Gary said each team that played last year would be receiving a $500 rebate from LLHH.
Under new business Gary discussed league fees. He discussed the player fee, and asked if reps thought the fees should remain the same. Nothing changed so the player fee will remain as it was for last year at $400, with the each player paying their own USA Hockey registration fee.
Gary asked that teams get their coaches lined up and prepare to let the league know who they are.
Gary said he was contacted by Bruce from the Nelson Center regarding the Jr. Blues Locker Room.. Gary said Bruce requested. LLHH and SYHA to each contribute $1750 toward this effort. Gary put this before the board. There were no motions made on the matter.
Gary said that was all he needed to cover. He said he might need to call a special meeting and he would let member know if that was going to take place.
The meeting was closed at 7:35 pm.
