House Report- Michael Goodman: Everything with new outdoor fall session is going well. A few reschedules had to take place due to weather, but no major problems with that. We are looking at revamping our outdoor house schedule for next year. Adding more time in. More on this to come as we figure things out. 

Field Report- Pat Deering: We are going to move the U6 fields for this weekend (and possibly rest of this session) over to Gratwick Park- those fields have remained under water after the downpours we had last weekend. Next year we are adding 3 more fields to Gratwick Park. All approvals have already been obtained from the City. 
We will also still utilize Spruce, Ohio and Gratwick Hose. 

Travel Report- Jim Blankenship: Winter season is coming up,all travel coaches need to turn in rosters even if you are not planning on playing in the first session. Everything is switching over to TeamSnap. Please get your webpages up and running. If you have any problems, let Jim know. We have lost a few travel teams due to various reasons- dual carding being a major one. 

New Business: 
League Meeting last week. Jim Blankenship and Pat Deering attended. There has been a new club in Medina added, you may have games out that way. 

Would like to get someone or a committee of people together to work on marketing the club. Get more notices put in local newspapers about all of the great things Northtowns Soccer has to offer. If anyone is interested, let Jim know. 

CPR / AED Training: free for club members. Next session is October 20, 2013 at Lockport Flips. A great thing for all coaches to have, contact Ann Deering if interested at ADeering123@aol.com 

Jen DeFrank has stepped down as Script Coordinator, Kim Goodman has decided to take over that position. Script cards are a great way to earn extra money for your soccer account. 

Nominations: 
President- Jim Blankenship
Vice President of Travel- Jim Coyle
Secretary- Ann Deering

Let us know if anyone else is interested in running for any of these positions, elections will take place next month.
