Commissioner's Report – Bob Price, OVR Commissioner/President

CEO's Report – Ron Wyzynski, OVR CEO/Executive Director

  • Ron is sending boxes of the 2009 Domestic Competition Regulations to various board members as distributers, which helps to reduce postage expense.
  • Molten products: We charge members $14 shipping per box (our cost) of Molten volleyballs. Some boxes will be set aside for HP. Shirts and other items will be used for officials and coaches as appropriate.
  • The OVR currently owns 40 courts, which continue to be a solid investment.
  • The plan for Adult Regionals and Bids is to use 52 courts, which will include 12 from an external supplier.
  • Terry noted that equipment rented out but not returned on time will be invoiced for payment.
