Account 7977, had a balance of
$20,494.04 (of which $8900.00 was bond money) as of January 10,
1999. As of July 31, 1999, the balance is $19,474.98 (of which $9400.00 is

is $2,136.50 from Spring U-17
teams that have not been billed yet.
- Nothing new to report.
- The board is awaiting a response from

- The State Select tryouts at
Springfield went very well. Excellent
assistance from Tom Kulavic and the SASA
Club. There was not a coaching clinic for the "E" license-- not
enough participants signed up.
- The next round of the 2000 State
Select process is August 14/15 in Rockford. Those selected have been
Bill Hall was not present; however, he submitted a written report via Bill
Christophel. His report
indicated that he had discussed three things with Ruben Horna; 1) teams
should be given appropriate time between games, 2) officials need to be at
rescheduled games when properly notified, and 3) the board would discuss
the assistant referee fees for the U-15 and above.
- The board discussed the fee structure
again concerning the U-15 and above assistant fee being the same as
U-13/14 and voted to retain it as it is. Board members pointed out that
the center fee was raised to attract higher quality center referees at the
older ages. Our pay schedule is much better than the Southern League and
comparable to the High School schedule.
- Again, the fee card that was made for
team coaches/managers was mentioned as having a very positive impact.
- Jay Ray was not present.
- Mike Cotner asked that the call for teams to be mailed for next Fall

board agreed to wait until Jay Ray could report on this Fall's scheduling
- There are now 3759 hits-- 2283 since
May 21, 1999.
- Waiting for Spring Standings as well
as new voting totals for the District Representatives.
Bill Christophel's comments were reviewed and discussed. Dave Hicks
suggested that since there were too many items to cover at one time, we
should pick a topic at each board meeting. The board decided to start with
their image. Some league members feel the Central board is not adding
value to the process. Clinics
and workshops were discussed.
- Dave Hicks suggested, and the board
decided, to survey the members to help determine direction (What would
they like?). Steve Hutton and Bill Christophel will prepare the survey and
Dave Hicks will arrange distribution.
- SFC is planning on hosting a
"D" license clinic in the early Spring.
Lou Basso will coordinate it.
- Dave Hicks is working on the Spring
standings and new voting totals for the District Representatives.

November 5, 1999 at 7:00 PM and hosted by Little Illini Soccer Club in
Meeting was adjourned at 1:15 P.M.
