The Trigg County Recreation Complex Board should “sit tight” until the Trigg County Youth Athletic Association figures out what to do next.

That is what Recreation Complex Manager Eldridge Rogers told the Complex Board when they met Monday night at the complex convention center. Although the board was one voting member short of a quorum, the TCYAA situation was discussed, as were the baseball tournaments held at the complex this weekend.

Although the TYCAA has not held elections for its next board of directors, Rogers thinks those elections could still happen, as there are some people within that organization that want to keep it going and want to keep kids playing here in Trigg County.

“I suggest we just sit tight, and whenever they’re organized for next year, we’ll start again,” Rogers said.

At the June meeting, Complex Board Chairman Ralph Thomas and several board members had issue with a segment of the document that states that the recreation complex will give the TCYAA 8 percent of gross receipts from concession stand sales, which then-TCYAA President Charles “Buggs”Terrell said would go toward complex improvements.

Complex Board Member Jim Perron and others stated that it would likely be illegal to give that 8 percent to the TCYAA, as the money generated from the concessions stand isn’t the complex board’s to give out.

A document written by on May 24 stated that the TCYAA needed an answer by the complex board’s June 14 meeting, and that if the board didn’t renew the contract, they would continue their contract but would then cease all operations after Aug. 31.

On the TCYAA web site at www.tcyaa.org/index2.html, Terrell officially announced shortly after the complex board’s June meeting that because of the complex board’s lack of action, the TCYAA will be no more starting in September.

In other business, Rogers said the baseball tournaments that were held this weekend, which weren’t TYCAA-organized tournaments, went better than was expected, although the concessions stand wasn’t prepared for the large numbers of people and the convention center became very hot because of all the people.

CORRECTION: The June 16 article in The Cadiz Record on the TCYAA contract stated that Thomas said, “That was my mistake,” with regard to his decision not to share the contract document with the board before the meeting. He actually said, “That was my decision.”
