CALL TO ORDER:  STC President, Connie Kacer, called the meeting to order at 2:00 PM.  Board Directors present were President Connie Kacer, Vice President Bob Rutstein, Secretary Don Stull, Treasurer Riley Jackson, and Director-At-Large Karen Gray and 2008 new Board members, Treasurer-elect Sue Ayers and Secretary-elect Dick Hamilton. 


MINUTES:   BOD minutes from November 14, 2007 were approved.

 TREASURER’S REPORT:  Treasurer Jackson reported $22,362 in checking and savings accounts.  He estimated about $19,000-$20,000 carryover to 2008.      

COMMITTEE REPORTS:  Charity--Bruce Nissenbaum:  presented a concept for “Copper Bowl Canteen;” requested food expenses reimbursement for up to $300; and requested permission to solicit for volunteers via STC e-mail.  The Board approved the concept and the reimbursement from the Charities fund.


Feasibility Study Group:  Dick Fleming presented information regarding the organization and layout of the new STC website that is being created as part of the Web Bridge Option which will allow Organized Play signup on the Internet.  Dick says a webmaster will need to be found and standards set for posting of content, such as fonts, colors, etc.




The Board discussed a letter received from a member regarding the proposed patio extension.  Steve Watry, CEC Chair, responded to issues raised in the letter.  It was decided to acknowledge the receipt of the letter, but no further action need be taken.


Steve indicated that in recent discussions with the proposed contractor, it was determined that an extra two feet (toward Courts 1-2) could be added to the patio extension without raising the cost.  Also, up to 12 footings to support a covering can be added at no additional cost.  Steve figures the contractor will allow about a 1-2 thousand dollar credit if HOA-1 does the landscape removal/prep for the project.  Bruce Nissenbaum figures the capacity of the patio would be increased by about two thirds. 


The Board discussed the wording of the ballot for the patio extension and decided to present the CEC proposal, Yes or No.  The Board decided to wait until after the holidays to initiate the vote.  It will be open Jan 2-16 by e-mail and paper ballot at the Tennis Center. 


The new Board members were encouraged to review the STC Bylaws; STC Rules; and Robert’s Rules of Order.  Arrangements were made to transfer RRO books and files from current to successive directors


ADJOURNMENT:  The meeting was adjourned at 3:50 PM


EXECUTIVE SESSION:  The 2007 BOD discussed personnel matters


Respectfully submitted,

Don Stull, STC Secretary
