Rochester Winter Track League
Minutes from the Pre-season Meeting
Penfield High School
Welcome Dave Hennessey opened the meeting by welcoming all the coaches old
and new. He requested that all coaches sign in and pickup handbooks for the
head coaches and assistant coaches.
Treasurer’ s Report - George Williams explained
the report that was given to all the coaches for last year’s expenses. He advised that all the rentals would
increase in cost not only for the use of the building but because there may be
added cost for security and other required expenses. He then advised that this
year he hopes to cut down on the coast of truck rentals because of newly acquired
bus driver’s license. He also advised that the cost of awards would lessen due
to the fact that there will be no Rochester Relays this year.
He further advised that they have not increased league
dues this year; however that will have to be looked out for next year. There
will be awards for the JV Championships and Invitational. He hopes, if the concessions go well, there
should be awards for the top three in the “Meet of Champions”
