The San Marcos High School Booster Club met at the school cafeteria and the meeting called to order at 6:35 pm by Co-President Valerie Schweers.Previous minutes were reviewed and Lillian Luna motioned to accept the minutes, Shannon Pringle seconded.
It was mentioned that the booster club needs to get names of concession stand workers to the gate personnel. Shannon states that the only people who get anything free from concession stand are coaches and referees. Edward Suarez will cook burgers on Thursday, and they have enough workers to cover both games.
Darrell, Melinda, and Sylvia will help with the selling of T-shirts and programs at the Varsity game. Programs will be here by Friday. Valerie spoke about the Rattlers Podcast at newstreamz.com. The “Shout Out” fundraiser should do well, it’s an opportunity for the community to support and build up the program. We have forms, or email Valerie by Friday to get a “Shout Out” on the Podcast.
The next home game will be Homecoming October 3, 2008. They will need to do inserts for the programs. They will also try to get this sponsored. The group will ask for volunteers to help with the inserts.
The group hosted guest speaker Ryan Perkins, of SparkNetcreative.com He is a SMHS graduate/alumni and has offered to build a website for the school athletics, beginning with the football program. He would like to give back to his community, and this will be done at no cost to the booster club. Target date of October 1 for the website to be up and running.
In the coaches’ presentation, Head Coach/Athletic Director Stephen Van Nest mentioned that the Waco game was fine. They’re a good team. We played a good first half and moved the ball. Defensively we played well also. Bastrop is a whole new team, new coach and they will spread out and throw the ball a lot. He feels it will be a good game for the team. Parents of Varsity players need to be there by 6:45pm to check in for walking in and being introduced with the players.
With no other business to discuss meeting was adjourned at 7:40pm. Next meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 8 @ 6:30pm SMHS cafeteria.
