Welcome! - - Reed Promotional Media - -
Reed, Dave Comer and Rob Ebbing of the Oakley Lindsay Center, and Jeff Dorsey of Y101 got together to come up with the idea for the karaoke contests.
Rob Ebbing, executive director of the Oakley-Lindsay Center, said he received confirmation Wednesday morning to pay for $18,000 in repairs that addressed damages caused by water that leaked into the facility's electrical panel.
"The other large one is when (lightning) hit the building and it wiped out every computer module and everything throughout our entire HVAC system," he said. "That was $66,000, and I don't see a problem with that at all." In other business, Ebbing said it appears that the Quincy Gems earned a small profit. According to the profit-and-loss sheet distributed, the team took in revenues of $215,069 with expenditures of $199,875, leaving a profit of $15,194. "It always changes when the auditor gets a hold of it and starts putting depreciation and things of that nature into it," Ebbing said. He said there could be some difference in Prospect League fees for next year. "As a league, we ran the Nashville team," he said. "I've not seen the numbers from that. Hopefully, the money that we have put away in the league will sustain that and not come back on individual teams." Ebbing said that the Quincy Musicfest, held over Labor Day weekend, did not have the support they originally hoped. He said there were approximately 1,500 people who attended the three-day festival.
Rob Ebbing, executive director of the Oakley-Lindsay Center, said hosting conventions and regional events is one of the goals of the two organizations as people will stay in hotels, shop and eat in area restaurants.
"It's been a good coordinated effort between the CVB and the OLC," he said.
Oakley-Lindsay Center Executive Director Rob Ebbing said the Gems are playing great and they were the 1st half champions in their division.
This will bring the divisional playoff game to Quincy August 8. Gate sales and beer sales have been very strong according to Ebbing, up $10,000 over the previous two years. Corporate nights have been sold out and above budgeted income.
Rob Ebbing, executive director of the Oakley-Lindsay Center and general manager for the Quincy Gems, said sales on many fronts were improving over the last couple years but still below 2008 figures when the team generated $62,090.
Gate, beer and concession sales through July 4 are up $10,000, and corporate nights are sold out. "Our presold tickets are down a little bit, but part of the category of presold tickets is when people also buy tickets for group outings," Ebbing said. "That number usually grows through the year. It doesn't necessarily mean tickets sold in advance of the season." The team has the fourth highest attendance in the Prospect League. "Our merchandise sales our down a little bit," Ebbing said, "so (Tuesday) night, we moved out of the trailer out onto a table. Ebbing said the facility could run into a legality issue if they tried to adjust who could rent it out. "We didn't keep out the midget wrestling or (mixed martial art) fights," Ebbing said. "There are always going to be people in the community that may not like a certain group or event, but this is America, and I don't know if it's our position legally that we can keep some entities from renting the building if it's available." The board also briefly discussed the possibility of how it collects payments, because nearly $1,800 is still owed on a wedding reception held more than three months ago. Ebbing said wedding receptions fall under the same category as other events. Ebbing said that someone not paying expenses is rare, but the staff would look at possibly requiring a credit card to avoid future issues. The board also approved allowing Ebbing to sign into an agreement for liability and property insurance. The authority received a letter from the Municipal Insurance Cooperative Agency allowing to exit the coop by Sept. 1. Ebbing said the OLC was in the process of getting an insurance rating, which is required when looking for insurance with private providers.
