Annual Report Recap
We had our annual meeting on Sunday, December 8 at the Winking Lizard in Coventry. Some highlights:

  • The board members appointed the following officers: 
    • Kasi David, President
    • Kevin Ziegler, VP Operations
    • Trish Armstrong, VP Outreach
    • Wade Weber, Treasurer
    • Brendon Friesen, Secretary
  • Trish is joining the officer ranks and is going to be helping us as we work to enhance our water polo programming for current members and to establish youth programming.
  • Wade gave a financial update. Members can email Wade if you would like financials. We are doing a good job collecting dues and we have funds to maintain quality equipment, invest in tournament travel and youth programming.
  • Tournament schedule for 2014:
    • Core Tournaments we plan to enter:
      • February 22-23: Ohio Squirrels Nutty Invitational in Cincinnati

    • Extra tournaments under consideration if we have enough interest:

At least tailgating is still good.
