Las Cruces Soccer Referee Association Board Meeting
August 14, 2011

Called to order at 6:35 PM.

Joseph Fleming discussed his idea for a LCSRA Tailgate party after a NMSU womenís Soccer match. Sunday, September 25th was agreed to as a good choice.  Lisa Willman motioned for $300.00 of LCSRA funds be used for food and $100.00 for tickets. Ray Burchfield seconded the motion, motion carried.

Discussion about scheduling; since the league is doing the scheduling, there really is no more contract between LCSRA and LCYSL any more. We need a league representative at our monthly meetings.

Only 6 attended the Grade 8 clinic, 2 of which were upgrades. Tom and Rick will instruct the Grade 9 clinic.

Motion to donate acknowledgement for Chris Cooksey, who keeps the MVSL running smoothly. Bill L. asked for $ in addition. Tabled.
