Jan reminded everyone that all committee members are responsible for doing rink supervision. She also suggested we hand out a copy of other rink schedules to those that want to play hockey etc. during our family skate times. Jan recommends that we add topics in the newsletter such as picking up after your dog (scoop the poop) and when/what rink supervision is all about.
Jan reminded the committee that the slope along the rink must be fixed and that we have someone available with a bobcat to do the work, just have to set it up with city parks department.
Jan spoke of the proposed off leash dog park for Hampton Village located along Richardson Road and East of McClockin Road. The plan consists of the trail to be covered in crusher dust (less muddy), benches to sit on, and 10 spots for parking added to the front of the entrance way of the park. If the report is approved by city council development the park could begin in Spring/Summer 2015. Cathy will follow up with the possibility to add a map and information to our newsletter.
- Coordinator’s Report

Committee will look into various groups/teams/programs that would be interested in delivering our newsletter. Chelsea will look into E.D Feehan High school for volunteers.
- Soccer- Registration was last night. Melanie will give us the
amount of registrants next meeting. Next year Mel is looking to have online registration. The storage unit flooded and as a result 6 bags were damaged including balls. They had to be thrown out.

Job Cathy! Cathy to be reimbursed for $221.05 for repairs and two new sandbags ($14.28). She will update the sign advertising our Annual General Meeting on October 8th at the Free Methodist Church.
