Money matters

We had big changes in income and expenses during 2011. At the beginning of the year we were collecting $5 or $7 per attendance. With the prospect of increasing pool costs we increased this to $8 or $10 on 4/18. In September we changed from paying a $4.50 scrip ticket per attendance to $47/hour and paying for the Monday high school practice. The high schoolers pay for their time using paypal. Then in October we changed to most people paying $72 or $126 per quarter automatically online and $13 for drop ins.

In 2011Q4 we had 12 members paying $126 and 14 members paying $72. Of these all but 5 used the paypal subscription.

We spent a long time estimating costs and expenses with various monthly schemes. Our expected cost was Monday (with high schoolers) $141 and Thursday $118 but actual cost was only $70.5 for Thursday. We estimated income of ~1000/month but thanks to the league and greater attendance from Club Puck we brought in 3248 in Q4.

   Q1  Q2  Q3  Q4
 Income, nightly

Other big items:

Insurance: 350 (paid in 2012)
Fins: 242
Cash stolen in burglary: 168
Money owed Club Puck from 2009 CCC tournament, repaid in 2011: 596
Potluck Tournament 2011: 3549 - 3420 = 129 profit

As of Jan 1, 2012 we had assets of $7190 (Wells Fargo checking account and paypal balance) and liabilities of $1424 (balances carried by players) and $2362 (invoice from the city, now paid).

Assuming we continue averaging >13 players/practice in Q1 Tom proposes reducing prices 15% starting Q2.
