Lex Herrlett reported on the planning for the League Golf Tournament. This is planned to replace the the income from the dropping of the Labor Day tournament as the fundraiser for the Board Directed Fund. The BDF is low at the present due to all of the donations to area field that we use for improvements and the purchasing of baseballs last year at a reduced price. The date for this tournament is still pending. Last year this event was a success raising approximately $1500 for the BDF. This year more hole sponsors will be sought and teams in the Divisions are encouraged to sponsor a hole for a $100 fee. Also if anyone knows of any business that will be willing to sponsor a hole please contact Lex. Most of the money raised is due to hole sponsors. The cost per player to play in the tournament is kept low so as to encourage participation so the revenue from registrants is small.
The next part of the meeting consisted of a lengthy discussion on developing protocol for the various parks and fields that are utilized by our league. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, new procedures will have to be instituted if a season is to be played. A sample waiver/release for communicable diseases including Covid-19 presented to the league by our insurance carrier was approved.Topics discussed include: Parking and spacing, time between games where players will be asked to leave the field immediately after their game ends, players sign in previous to the game with GMs taking team temps to assure no one is sick, Umpire protocol has all ready been delivered to the league by the umpire association, players should bring their own hand sanitizer, no sharing of equipment, offensive players must wear a mask, defensive masks are optional, baseball sanitizing, spectators and protocol for if someone is determined to be sick or subject to contact tracing. John Reel will be formulating an official league protocol from this discussion and present to the Board for approval.
Motion to adjourn by Chris Abrams, seconded by Don Wixon. Approved unanimous. Meeting adjourned at 9:26 pm.

Thanks for the update Bob. Can you or someone else elaborate on the offensive players wearing masks? That sounds miserable.
