II)                Vote and recommendation of the above mentioned grants:

 

a.      New Referee Training: New Fairfield Youth Lacrosse: Unanimously approved for recommendation - $300 ($925 minus $625 for membership).

b.      Amistad Academy High School and Middle School Lacrosse Team: Unanimously approved for recommendation (Jay Fellows did not vote) - $500.

c.      CT High School Lacrosse Coaches Association.  Grant to help subsidize awards for Boys Lacrosse: Unanimously rejected with comment.  It was recommended that the Board of Directors should explore ways on how it can work with the CT High School Lacrosse Coaches Association to assist in funding its initiatives.  

d.      MDOC Officials Level 1 Training Program for Boys: Unanimously approved for recommendation, with comment (Ted Murphy did not vote).  The Grant Committee unanimously recommended that this cost should be accounted for in the CT Lacrosse Association’s annual operating budget.  That, while the Grant Committee has approved this request, it doesn’t believe that the funds required to pay for the MDOC efforts should come from the Grant Committee budget.

e.      Owaneco Youth Lacrosse, Town of Pomfret: Unanimously approved for recommendation contingent upon Mark Duclos’ verification (with Barbara Gagnon) that this is a new program - $500. 

f.        CONNY Year End Jamboree at Yale: Unanimously rejected (Robert Russell and Jon Einhorn did not vote).

g.      Watertown Youth Lacrosse.  High School Lacrosse Funding: Unanimously rejected.

h.      North Haven Girls Youth Lacrosse: Unanimously approved for recommendation with comment - $500.  Mark Duclos to suggest to North Haven that they should seek funds from the USLAX Equipment Grant Program.

 

Closing comments made by Sandy MacMullen (and echoed by many other members) that the CT Lacrosse Foundation Board of Directors should better quantify how it determines the amount of monies allotted for the Grant Committee.

 

Meeting adjourned 10:25 pm.
