Treasurers Report: Whit reported budget looks as expected, hope to raise more funds this year. Dipped into reserve last year and most likely will again this year. Whit met with A.D. Susan Robbins, the school budgeted $$ last year for hockey and we didn’t use half of it. He suggested that HS coaches should go to the school first with their needs ie: tape, pucks, socks etc…The school approved to pay for coaches (head coach for girls with 2 assistants and head coach for boys with 2 assistants also a JV coach.)

Coaches update: Coach St. Pierre ordered new equipment, gloves, pants and helmets to replenish stock and for extra players this season. Winter sports night is 11/7, Coach St. Pierre will hold a parent meeting asking if any parent is interested in becoming the new “Voice of Yarmouth Hockey. “ This person will be the announcer at the home games and will be responsible for the clock. The school pays $20 each home game for this position. Jane Gallagher has volunteered to help organize the game opener in dedication to Becky Shaffer, a Yarmouth alumni and hockey player who passed away this summer in a tragic accident. Jane will also organize a dedication page for the program book. Coach Murray reported he’s in the process of evaluations for the MS Varsity team. He thanks the Wilson’s and the Dealaman’s for their help in coordinating. He also thanked Dave N., Whit, Dave St. Pierre, Rob and Scott for helping to evaluate. The MS has 40 skaters this year and 3 teams. He’s placing 21 on the Varsity team.
