Good news! The club ended May with a cash balance of $20,365. Jerry explained that our forecast was for $16,865, and so therefore we are way ahead of budget! Jerry told the board that Brad has done a great job and that court income fees are higher than projected. The next discussion related to our meter for our electric bill. In January, the
recreation center allocated 12.6 % to UCRC, February’s allocation was 8.1% and the March allocation was 9.5%. The electricity bill has decreased, even before our own switch has been installed.
Brad reported the court fees for April-June. Court fees are up and better $775 in April and $660 in May. It was lower in May because of the rainout days on Fridays. The courts have been busy in the late afternoon and early The club added 3 family and 3 adult memberships since the last meeting.

Membership dues were discussed. The board discussed raising renewal fees. It was suggested to offer the old rate if one renewed early. Vivian suggested that we ask for donations with the renewal. All members liked this recommendation. An example was given to put a line on the membership form for improvements and an amount of the donation a line for other amount. We may list the cost of bulbs on the courts, net costs, resurfacing court
