Well, the season is over and we managed to get the tourney in finishing on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Thank you to everyone for another great season and wishing you a happy and healthy off-season.
We have one last piece of business to take care of to close the year as we are already starting to get ready for another.
- The AGM has been scheduled for:
- Tuesday, November 7th at 8:30 pm.
- Louie’s on Lewis (old Knights of Columbus) on Lewis Rd.
This is a MANDATORY Meeting for all teams. You must have at least one Team Rep present. Keys MUST be turned in at this meeting or you will be subject to the $200 replacement fee.
We must have a quorum of 50% plus 1 for any Playing Rule or Constitutional changes to be voted on.
We will discuss any and all Rule changes & Constitutional Proposals for the 2018 season.
If you would like to submit a rule change or constitutional proposal, it must be sent to me in detail 2 weeks prior to the meeting. If you want to have a vote or a say in any of the changes/proposals, this is the meeting that you have to be at!
This means that any and all Rule Changes OR Constitutional Proposals MUST BE RECEIVED by me no later than Tuesday October 24th to be included in the AGM and to be voted on to be in effect for the 2018 playing season.
Just a reminder – when you do submit, I read them as they are written. I cannot read between the lines so make your points and thoughts well documented.
Some other areas of discussion for the meeting:
- Alignment – promotion & relegation/re-alignment
- City meeting notes
- Expansion options
- Banquet options
- Roster policy
- Scheduling/season duration
And Finally …
If you have a question about Performance Bonds, email Brandi and she can give you an update. All teams Performance bonds will carry over into the new year UNLESS you request a refund. If you require a refund then contact Brandi and she can arrange to have it ready for pickup at the AGM.
You do not have to be the team rep to attend the AGM. However your team will only receive one vote on any matter.
What we will be doing moving forward with new bat policy and standards
SOME Existing ASA 2004 certified bats will be allowed however the list is getting smaller. Some aluminum bats will no longer be allowed if they are illegible as to the bat and a visible ‘Official 1.20 BPF’ allocation.
- Any NEW ASA ONLY stamped bats will not be allowed at all.
- Bats containing the new USSSA thumbprint stamp with 1.20 BPF will be allowed.
- Bats containing the new USSSA thumbprint 1.15 bpf and with NEW ASA stamp will NOT be allowed.
- Jak’d Bats continue to be banned from the league.
If there are questions or discussion about any of this, please wait until the AGM so it can be discussed as a group. If anything needs to be further discussed we can move to table a vote until first meeting of new year, but only if necessary.
