Today we attempted to create an easy-to-set-up pitch, but were short on supplies. We ended up with a basic pitch outline, though, so were able to run through a few scrimmage matches with small teams. We’re still lacking brooms, so lots of people just held a hand behind their backs.
In attendance today were Maddie, Kelly, Jessica, Steven, Connor, Griffin, Max, Zachary, Tisha, Onyx, Sarah, Emily, and a newcomer, Connor’s friend Kate, who was our snitch.
Italics were proposed ideas, underlines are general consensus
– Core members vs. Periphery members
– Players vs. Backers vs. Planning Committee?
– Who’s on the team?
– “Equal opportunity” between all members
– Tournament players “elected” by planning committee
– Due-paying member roster w/ prospective list
– Budget written up by planning committee
– Budget divided by 21?
– Budget divided by # of members?
– Calculate budget w/o travel funds at beginning of year, calculate tournament budget a month before tournament, divide that by 21
– 2 safety officers on-site
– Buying 4 dodgeballs 2/25/12
– Buying snitch belt 2/25/12
– Eventually getting captains/trainers who plan practices

Today we played a bit of quodpod, messed around with bludgers, and then had our first scrimmage. We used small teams, a non-denominational beater, and left out the seekers and snitch.
In attendance today were Maddie, Kelly, Figgins, Steven, Jessica, Onyx, Zachary, Stephanie, Connor, Tisha, Martha and Emily.
The Baked! Sale exceeded our expectations – in just a week, we raised over $200 for the team’s equipment. A HUGE thanks to Griffin, Maddie, Jes, Steven, Max, Figgins, Onyx, Jeneva, Martha, Arturo, Will, Emily, Sarah, Tisha, Nathan, Kelsey and Phil for working hard to raise money for the team. An even BIGGER thanks to our friends at Baked! of Bloomington for supplying us with the opportunity of a lifetime.

We handed out coupons for 10% off a Baked! order with every cookie purchase made during the bake sale:
Our best seller was the “Dirty Snitch” – the team favorite cookie. It’s a hidden oreo wrapped in oatmeal dough with M&Ms and a marshmallow on top. Mmmm…
After practice this week, we decided to make a huge thank-you card and take it to Baked!
Presented by Stitched Together and sponsored by Baked! of Bloomington, our bake sale will take place daily from Monday, February 13 to Friday, February 17 between 11:00am and 1:30pm.
