Meeting was called to order at 5:30.

 

This meeting was called to discuss our upcoming Applebee’s Fundraiser.  Applebee’s does this community project for non-profits. 

 

The fundraiser will be April 4th at the Applebee’s located at 14560 Old St. Augustine Road.  They will prep and cook the food.  Cost is $11.00 for adults and $6.00 for children.  Menu includes three pancakes, two sausage links, scrambled eggs and beverage. We pay Applebee’s $for each ticket sold. 

If we sell 105 tickets we could make a profit of $328.00; 175 tickets is a profit of $630.00 and 300 tickets we will make $1,700.00.  We can only sell 300 tickets max.

 

We need at least 20 volunteers from 7:30 am to 10:00 am.  There will be a sign up sheet on the bulletin board at the gym or you can sign up online at our website.  We will seat the guests, serve food and beverages and bus the tables.  The gymnast will not be able to serve but we will need them to be greeters or to sell items at our table.  We can’t sell food but can sell anything else.

 

If you volunteer, your ticket is $4.00.  We would like for each gymnast family (we have 35) to sell at least 5 tickets. 

We are pre-selling them and can take cash or check made out to WGVABC.  If they would like to pay by credit card, they can go online at our WGVABC website.

 

There was a suggestion to sell the carwash tickets at a table. 

 

Applebee’s suggested that we put out signs the night before along the road.  We will need a volunteer to take this on.

Any gymnast that comes to volunteer is to wear their exhibition leo and black pants.  Volunteers need to wear WGV shirt or team colors and pants (no shorts).

 

Meeting adjourned at 5:50

Meeting Minutes

Call to Order by President at 5:45

 

Tammy discussed that we met today because our By-laws have been approved as a non-profit.  She introduced the officers.

 

Tracey discussed that we are a 501C3 and can’t use money to support individual girls.  All the girls have to be treated the same.  

 

Major expenses this year-lockers.  The lockers belong to WGVABC, not the gym.  We can’t buy something for the gym but can purchase something for the team.

 

Tammy is approved to spend $1,000.00 at a time without approval from board.  Anything over that has to be voted on by board-except for meet fees that have to be paid.

 

To be a booster member is not mandatory.  It costs $25.00 per gymnast.  If you belong to booster club, then you get a vote.  Fees must be in good standing to have a vote. Only one person per family is allowed to vote (membership).  To be in good standing, you have to be coming to practices.

 

Annual meeting will be in May and we will vote for new officers.  We will attempt to have monthly meetings, especially if there is something to vote on.  April will be when we open up the ballots for officers.

 

Please make sure email is correct and up-to-date.  We will respond through email, so please email WGVABC@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.

Website, please check it often.  Tracey takes care of the website.  Competition scores are on the website.  If you have registered for a meet and then decide to not attend, you will not be given your money back unless you have a doctor’s note.  Coaches fees will not be charged if you scratch the meet.  Please update child’s information on website.

Uniforms-one jacket with monogram, optional pants, WGV leo and competition leos. The bags are given to the girls.  If you leave the team, you will have to give the leo back.  You can also purchase the leo, if you’d like.  There is a buy-back program now if you want to buy a larger size leo.  The same leo and warm-ups will be used again next year.

 

Volunteering-We can’t make it mandatory for you to volunteer.  Gift card program is now in effect.  The more hours you put in the more chances you have to win the gift card.  Please support the team girls as much as you can.  We appreciate it.  Please make sure you put in your hours after you have worked,  on the website so you can be eligible for gift cards.  Officers are not eligible for this drawing.  

 

Treasury Report-Tracey audited the books from August to the present to make sure the numbers are correct.  We are in balance as of now.  Please see attached report.  If someone donates to WGVABC, it will go into the general fund and they can have a tax write off.  If you solicit money for your own daughter, it can’t be non-profit and you will have to file it on your taxes.  The money will go into your daughter’s fund.  

 

Fundraisers, except for Tropical Smoothie, made us: (see treasury report)

Gifts to team-includes leos and holiday party.

Sponsors-this is the money we made after we paid for the banners, etc.

$5,050.00 is needed to pay for each girl to go to state meet.  Available now we have $4,900.00 (not all can be used for this since their are other expenses).    There are 38 girls on the team.  We would love to be able to pay for each girl’s entire season.

Fundraisers as a booster club, we can’t split any of the money as a non-profit.  If it is done for WGV Gymnastics, we will then give the money to the girls who participated in the fundraiser.  We would have to vote as to whether it would be a booster fundraiser for a WGV Gymnastics fundraiser.

 

Sponsors can be prorated if they want to sponsor us now.  Work on sponsors before this summer.  Check the website for details for sponsors.  In the agreement for sponsors, we said we would make t-shirts with their names on them (for the higher money sponsors).  We will work with sponsors.  

 

We still have Usborne boxes of cards to sell.  If you would like to sell, please let Tracey know.  

Future fundraisers-A vote was taken to see if the Car Washes will be a WGVABC or WGV Gymnastics fundraiser.  

A vote was also taken to purchase a vending machine for the booster club.

 

Future Fundraiser ideas:

 

Applebee’s does a Flap Jack fundraiser.  We sell tickets, serve, etc. and get a flat fee for each ticket sale.

 

Your Pie-a pizza place that will let us have a fundraiser and 20% of sales will be given.

 

Suns-Tammy just received an email to work at games and we get 6-7% of sales from concessions.

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday-sell hotdogs and/or popcorn during practice time.

 

Food Trucks-see if we can get food trucks here and maybe get a percentage from sales.

 

AAU has a new regional meet which will be in May in Daytona.  Tammy just received information and forwarded it to Heather.  A decision will be made at a later date as to whether we will attend.  

 

General funds can’t go into girl’s individual accounts.  At this time $100.00 has been taken off each meet for girls going, which is taken off the cost of coach’s fees.

 

Accounts on the website has changed a little because they were password protected.  Tracey made them more accessible.  Click on your name and the site will ask for password.  Use old password and you will have access to your individual page with accounts.  (email for password) is the password under team parent’s tab.  This tab includes the sponsors list and who is working at getting a sponsor.  

 

Please let Tracey know if you are working on getting a sponsor so we don’t double up on a business.

 

Meeting was adjourned at 7:04pm.
