*There was discussion regarding potentially changing our Fall Executive Board Meeting to the Level 6 State Meet date each year.
*Proposals need to be brought to your respective Zone Rep before meetings. Remember that only NorCal members can give input regarding the NorCal Organization. There was discussion on how decisions are made in NorCal, and how the Executive Board can potentially provide more leadership in the proposals process to better represent the membership.
*NorCal Awards for Zone and State Championships: Perry Siu is working with the NorCal Awards Chairman to clarify what awards are purchased. If there any concerns about awards, please contact Perry Siu or Kimberly Kor.
*There was clarification regarding this seasonís Level 5 State Meet location, as it was held at Technique gym and technically, all NorCal State Meets must be held at an offsite facility. However, Technique had originally bid with Sac State as the site, and late into September, Sac. State fell through. With the State Meet only two months away, Perry Siu, NorCal Chairman, made the executive decision to allow Technique to host it, thus saving NorCal the huge ordeal of finding another meet host at that late date. Thanks to Technique for hosting a great State Meet!
*Paul Hausladen Memorial Scholarship Award:
In memory of Paul Hausladen, as he was a long time coach and friend of NorCal Gymnastics. The purpose of this scholarship is to help pay for the expenses arising during a competitive season of a gymnast facing a financial hardship. It will be awarded at the June meeting. Donations for this award are being accepted. A committee has been formed to solidify the recipientsí qualifications.
Head-Darcie Hansen, Robert Waroff, Mary McKulle, Laurel Graver.
*There was discussion regarding parents and spectators using loud cheers at meets. It is the coaches and Meet Directors responsibilities to control the crowd! Thank you.
Motion to adjourn. Seconded. Meeting adjourned at 10:47pm.
