PROPOSED 2017/2018 BUDGET

    The budget reflects a projected income from membership dues of $10,000, $25 per person @ 400 membership.  We have currently collected dues from 329 members as of March 1 deadline set by the board.
    The rest of the budget is projections for shirt sales, banquet fees, tournament fees, and social events.  All these monies are in/out expenses that would be paid for the cost of doing business.  Clearly, these amounts are just guidelines and could be more or less.
    As of March 7th, the club's current bank balance is $14,384.  This balance includes membership dues of $8,350 and $2,835 banquet receipts both totaling $11,185.  Subtracting this total from the current bank balance would leave a carry over of $3,199.  The board will not expend any monies between now and the April 1, 2017, start of the newly elected board cycle, except to pay for the banquet. 
    Please find attached a copy of the proposed budget to be voted on with the board election on March 13th and March 14th.  Results will be announced at the annual meeting on March 15th to begin at 6 PM.
   For questions regarding the budget please contact the President at [email protected] .
   Thank you, The Board
