CALL TO ORDER - This Special Board Meeting was called to order at 3 pm by President, Dick Partridge. Those Board Directors present were Dick Partridge, Connie Kacer and Marje Valenti.
AGENDA - The sole purpose of this meeting was to consider the recommendation from the Organized Play Committee to discontinue provisional matches for the summer months. The discussion centered on the diminished pool of players due to many STC members leaving during the summer and the declining signup numbers. The opinion was that with the smaller pool of players per level available, to continue the provisional matches would further deteriorate the integrity of the program and compromise the levels since provisional players would only be playing the same players again and again and that would not be a true test of skill level. The motion was made to freeze immediately the start of all new provisional matches until the first Monday in October. The motion passed 3 – 0. This immediate discontinuation of new provisional matches will not affect those members whose provisional matches are still in progress. Those players will continue in provisional play until their process is completed. Players, who have previously signed up to play provisional matches and have not begun the process, will be the first on the list when provisional play resumes.
Meeting adjourned at 3:35 p m. Respectfully submitted. Marje Valenti, STC Secretary
