Posted Feb 1/15 - Notes from 1/31/15 Meeting
Ok, the girls had a fun night out at Stanton Lanes hitting up their bowling skills!

Let's get right down to the meat of what went on:

1) Uniforms:  There were a few different styles that we chose from, and you can view the winning pick by clicking this link:  View the design here.
     - The logo will obviously be different - it will be the Snake wrapped around the ball (like we have now, minus the "Venom Softball) text.  The Text "Northeast" will wrap around the top of the ball, while "Venom" will be wrapped around the bottom of the ball.

2) Important:  Donut orders will be picked up February 8th, 2015 (Next Sunday) due to Krispy Kreme having the 15th booked already.  Please have your donut order complete and any monies turned in on Tuesday.  Coach Bryan will call everyone Wednesday/Thursday to confirm everyone's count.  If you are able to sell a box or two between Tuesday and Thursday, feel free to do so, as you can turn in any extra moneies you have collected when we hand out the orders.  However: Please make sure to get as much funds turned in on Tuesday evening as you can.

3) Getting a 2nd set of uniforms was brought up, for those overnight stays or multiple tournament days (they are all multi-days....) that we as parents do not get a chance to wash the first set.  Great idea, but it does require funding as they are not free or cheap.  Let's get one set of uniforms paid for first, then we can work on a second set.

4)  Once MVP gets their final inspection (should know Monday, February 2nd) we will be transferring our practices over there.  The cost for each child will be $51.00 for a month.  This will probably be required before we start practicing.  Breaking it down, it comes out to about $13.00 per week for each player.  Not bad for 2 days that everyone can be there, and for 2 hours each session with the newest equipment and a clean facility.  Please watch your messages Monday for notice.

5) Speaking of practice times, everyone is available Sunday (5:00pm) and Tuesdays (6:30pm) from the sheets the parents filled out.  These will be firm since everyone has seemed to agree on them.  This will be for when we transfer over to MVP - which will hopefully be this week.

6) Ok, back to the multi-uniforms and the fundraising.  Many great ideas were brought to the table about raising funding for extra tournaments, an extra set of uniforms, and more training equipment. 
     a) Another Bucket Drop:  Miss Jackie has secured the following dates for more Bucket Drives at Schiel's:  February 8th (this upcoming Saturday) and March 7th.  The times are the same as last: 11:00am until 5:00pm
    b)  A flapjack breakfast at Applebee's:  Proposed date would be March 7th. Figured then they can shoot over to Schiel's - two fundraisers in one day....
    c) Domino's Pizza Cards.  Buy the cards for $1.00 each and sell for $10.00 each.  The recipient gets a buy one- get one deal, 10 times.  Seems very lucrative and there is no time limit to sell them.
    d) Bucket Drop at a Wal-Mart.  This can be huge and more information is on the way for it.  Good days at a Walmart can easily bring in enough to cover 1 full set of uniforms.

7)  Overnight stays:  If we have enough funding, it was brought up to stay at the Sunbury tournament overnight. 

8) Tournament Dates:  Once we get a final word on Tuesday about OUR tournament, the tournament dates will be posted here on the calendar.  You will be notified via our GroupMe Text App and Text messaging about the dates we have in mind after that one.  Our tournament will be the first (with blessings) and we will use the proceeds from it to book our next tournaments.

Thank you,
Coach B.

Weekly Inspiration


A prominent salesman summed up his success in three simple words - "And Then Some."
"I discovered at an early age," he said, "that most of the difference between the average and top people could be explained in three words. The top people did what was expected of them - and then some . They were thoughtful of others, they were considerate and kind - and then some. They met their obligations fairly and squarely - and then some. They were good friends to their friends, and they could be counted on in an emergency - and then some."

The answer to three questions will determine your success or failure.
1. Can people trust me to do my best?.
2. Am I committed to the task in hand?.
3. Do I care about other people and show it?
If the answers to all three questions are yes, there is no way you can fail. -- Lou Holtz.


I believe everything begins with a positive idea. Positive thinking is the key to success in business, education, pro football, anything you mention. The mind is your most powerful muscle. -- Ron Jaworski. NFL Quarterback

?If you'll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.? -- Vince Lombardi

"Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world were watching."
Thomas Jefferson

"One important key to success is self-confidence.
An important key to self- confidence is preparation."
Arthur Ashe   

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team
confidence, excellence becomes a reality.
Joe Paterno

"You show what kind of team you are; you show what
kind of character you have by the adversity your face."
Quote by Lisa Fernadez.

Coming together is a beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.
Henry Ford

In order to have a winner, the team must have a feeling of unity;
every player must put the team first-ahead of personal glory.
Paul Bear Bryant

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation,
hard work, learning from failure.
Colin Powell
