Attendees were welcomed.

INTRODUCTION OF GUESTS/NEW MEMBERS
Beena Ordahl, membership chair, reported that 5 people have become new members since the September meeting. Total membership is now at 94. New members were introduced.

ANNOUNCEMENTS
Steve reported the ratings committee for 2018 consists of Dean Alfrey, Susan Pharr and Kevin Schick.

Mr. Robson has donated $2,600.00 to SBRTA to form the Ed Robson Tennis Learning Center. Therefore, a skills development committee has been formed. For 2018 the members are Dean Alfrey, Elmer Klavetter, and Susan Pharr. If anyone else is interested in being part of the committee, please contact one of the members. The first item purchased from these funds is a Topspin Pro training device which was used in the Monday skills development clinic. It is housed in the same storage container as the ball machine.

Steve read the heartfelt letter of thanks that Krista Steiness sent about the Steiness Festival that was just held.
Steve gave a review of the history of the Steiness Festival.

The time change for organized play was reviewed. Starting December 1st. sessions begin one hour later.

A member requested that the Monday evening mixed doubles session to begin at 4:00 P.M. After discussion, it was decided that this change would be implemented.

Ken Levitt moved that an additional evening mixed doubles session be added in the Wednesday 4:00 - 6:00 P.M. time slot. It was seconded by Dean Alfrey. Motion passed.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES
Mike Fielding moved that the minutes of the Quarterly Membership Meeting held on September 15, 2017 be approved. Lutz Pape seconded. Motion passed.

TREASURER'S REPORT
Sandy Schlager read the treasurer’s report for Elmer Klavetter who is out of town.
The current balance in the general fund is $1999.07. The tennis development/training funds are $2,461.00 after purchasing the Topspin Pro training device. The total amount of funds in the account (general fund plus development/training funds) at the end of the year is expected to be approximately $4,500.00. (Report is attached.)
The general funds and Robson skills develpment/training funds will be accounted for separately.

DIRECTORS' REPORTS
None at this time.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS FOR 2018
Sixteen people voted via email.
Seventeen members voted by secret ballot at this meeting.
Phil Preston and Kevin Schick oversaw the vote count.
All candidates were unanimously elected.

Officers for 2018 are:
President: Steve Ordahl
Vice President: Wes Hurst
Secretary: Sandy Schlager
Treasurer: Lutz Pape
Membership: Been Ordahl
Events: Carol Mihal

CONSIDERATION OF CHANGE TO THE BYLAWS
A proposal to change the wording in Article IX, Section 1 of the by laws was discussed. Ken Levitt moved the the wording be changed to “The committee shall nominate at least one candidate for each office”. After being seconded by Dean Alfrey, a vote was taken. Motion carried.

REVIEW OF THE STEINESS TENNIS FESTIVAL
The hard work of the committee, headed by Terry and Anita Zimmerman, resulted in an outstanding, smoothly run tennis tournament.

Suggestions/comments for next year’s committee and captains to consider included:
Eliminate no-ad scoring. Set a time limit and use “deuce” scoring.
More matches
Have full 3-set matches
Use Facebook and Next Door SBR for wider publicity
Eliminate gift cards for the winning team
Lack of seating for court #2

Overall goal: grow the festival.

COMMENTS/QUESTIONS:
Remember to pay your 2018 dues before January 31st. You may give your check or cash to Lutz Pape, Treasurer for 2018, personally, drop it off at his home or mail it to him.
A suggestion was made that one person be the contact to collect all monies for the club. This item will be on the agenda for the next board meeting.

The next rating clinic will be held on December 11, 2017. Tentative clinics are slated for February and September. Other clinics may be scheduled if needed.

It was pointed out that as our club grows, we need a standard method to address “rotation” of members playing during organized times. The system that the Pickle Ball Club uses will be given a test run as soon as possible. Dean Alfrey volunteered to have a set of the requirements/details available on each court.

A suggestion was made to send a survey to each member with the issue of “player rotation” being one item.


ADJOURNMENT: It was moved and seconded that the meeting be adjourned. Motion carried. The meeting adjourned at 2:49 P.M.

Respectfully submitted,
Sandy Schlager, SBRTA Secretary

FOR WEBSITE PUBLISHERS
You can publish this feed in two ways. (1) Simply by installing a link to this feed on your website, or (2) by syndicating (embedding) a portion of the the actual feed content on your website.


(1) Linking to This NewsPage

The following link for this NewsPage can be used to form an anchor text link for your website:

http://www.enfeedia.com/sbrtennis/meetings.php

Alternatively, you can install an RSS NewsPage icon enfeedia news feed reader on your website using this link:

<a href="http://www.enfeedia.com/see/sbrtennis/meetings.php"><img src="http://www.enfeedia.com/enfeedia_01.gif" border="0"></a>


(2) Syndicating This Feed Using Enfeedia's 'Super Simple Syndication'

Syndication of RSS feeds simply means that the feed content or portion thereof is embedded on one or more websites (RSS = Really Simple Syndication).

If your website server supports PHP -- and virtually all of them do -- you can display the contents of this feed directly on your website. You select how many of the most recent items and the length of the items to display.

You implement this by simply inserting either of the two following PHP code snippets on your website. The first arranges items in a vertical column whereas the second in a horizontal row. (Be sure to take into account your webpage width when using the row orientation).

Both snippets provide a basic presentation of the most recent three items showing a maximum of approximately 300 characters, inheriting colors and style from the page syndicating the feed. You can change the number of items displayed by changing the NI parameter in the snippet. Similarly, you can change the length of items displayed by changing the LI parameter.

Vertical Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents("http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=col&AN=sbrtennis&FN=meetings&NI=3&LI=300;)

Horizontal Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents("http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=row&AN=sbrtennis&FN=meetings&NI=3&LI=300;)

The above snippets use Enfeedia's "Super Simple Syndication" eliminating the need to upload any scripts to syndicate feeds. You can explore syndication methods by going to the Enfeedia home page and selecting the "Promote/Syndicate" menu item. You will learn how to fully customize the presentation of the feed on your website. For this feed, use account name sbrtennis and then select feed meetings.
