Minutes of August meeting:

$387.80 in the admin fund and $46,036.21 in foundation funds. With an additional $3250 in sponsorship funds to deposit.
Jim reports that 15 teams have committed, 5 teams have paid, and five more teams are needed. Sponsorships have generated $3250. Additional pledges from Hermann and Sons Insurance (Dennis Henke) and Bruce Reeh Construction (Bruce Reeh) for $500 each. Other potential sponsors include Alstat Brewery to donate beer and Iron Goat rum to donate product and cocktails. Cost commitments to date are approximately $3250 for meals, tokens, hats, divot tools, tees, balls and koozies for player prizes. Discussion was held about buying a permanent trophy to be inscribed with the winning team. The purpose would to market the tournament and increase visibility for Junior Golf. Decision made to consider a plaque that could have names added over the years to be displayed at Lady Bird. More information concerning style and pricing to follow. Decision made to provide prizes for first place ( sterling silver ball markers donated by Champs Jewelry), second place (wine tour or products), and third place logo golf ball (Brian will donate 2 boxes of Boot Ranch, Leonard will donate two boxes of Lady Bird —-the two types to be mixed so each player gets one box).
Fredericksburg Golf Team: The team needs money to participate in a tourney at TPC SA. It was moved, seconded and approved to donate $250 to this cause. Jim will be sure that Junior Golf Foundation gets notice at FISD including Booster Club.
TrackMan: The Wellness Center owns a TrackMan system for golf instruction but has not used it for several years. Leonard will speak with JP at the Wellness Center to find out availability for purchase, lease, or partnership so that the system can be set up at FHS. Important will be assurance that the system is not obsolete.
SNAG: Jim will speak to Tim Kaman to find available persons at Middle School about placement of SNAG equipment and instruction before seeking approval from the Superintendent. Chris and Alex have offered to train FISD personnel. Jim will find out about the SNAG equipment at Boot Ranch: exactly what is available and price.
Junior Clinics: Chris is holding junior golf clinics every other Saturday for the foreseeable future. A full schedule is available on Face Book.
Jim discussed plans to pay instructors $75 per hour. Each clinic lasts about 2 hours, not every instructor is involved in all clinics, so this way each of the instructors will be compensated for the time each spends teaching the kids. Compensation will be provided at intervals, probably seasonally.
Fun After Five:
To be held at Lady Bird on September 20. Our cost is$250. Chamber supplies a table and table cloth. Plans are to use junior golf club set, 8X11 flyers for tournament and summer clinics, plus give-aways of golf tees and koozies for display. A sign-up sheet will be available for potential donors, volunteers, and golf tournament. Volunteers include Donna, Dennis, Adam, Eric, Leonard. Janie will invite the golf team to visit and participate after their practice.
It was agreed to hold a meeting on Wednesday October 3rd and every third Wednesday of the month thereafter at LBJGC at 5:30.
Meeting adjourned 6:05
