·    Late Fees - To be or not to be?
Members and tournament directors voted to keep late fees intact.  Late registrations make more work for everyone and need to be discouraged.
·    Tournament fees - Increase State Championship fees to $30.  Fees have not increased lately and cost of target faces and bales has gone up. (Passed)
·    Newsletter - Still want hard copy mailed out?  Average cost is $300.  (Passed)

Mildred & James Hosford Memorial Foundation:  
The Hosfords were long-time supporters of archery in Texas and stayed in touch in their later years via Rick Stonebraker.  Jim passed away some time ago and was followed last year by Mildred. Through their generosity, the TSAA is the fortunate recipient of a $20,000 endowment.  The donation will be invested in secure short-term investments as in CD’s.  After a few years of growth the foundation’s interest will be a source of funding for Archery growth in Texas.
