2009 Season Set to Kick Off!!!

Hello to All Captains / Prospective Teams and Players!

It’s that time of year again!  With Labour Day falling on an odd weekend this year, I thought we would be adventurous and try to get the season started a week early this year (similar to the schools).  I’d like to see the season kick off on August 31st this year if it is feasible.  That being said - our captains meeting will be held on August 26th (Wednesday) at Joey Calzones at 7:00pm.

I’ve attached the roster form (below) for downloading.  If visiting the Touch Football Ontario site, you will notice the provincial association is charging us to submit any roster amendments.  So, if your team is planning on submitting a revised roster after the captain’s meeting - there is a $25 fee associated / required for the change to be accepted.

Fees this season.  Earlybird fee = $500 --> due at or before the captains’ meeting.  Regular fee = $550 --> due before your first regular season game.  With the late meeting this year, I’m hoping everyone can take advantage of the Earlybird Fee.

Division Winners. Bring your trophy to this meeting - the City of SSM wants to display these trophies in a public display case during the season.  If you cannot attend the meeting - please make arrangements to get me those trophies.

Meeting Agenda:
  1. Number of Confirmed Teams?
  2. 5 players (Great Lakes Power Employees / friends) - looking for a team - if you’re short or close this year, let me know!!
  3. Rushing Rule!
  4. No-dead-ball Rule!
  5. Round Robin  vs.  Division A & B Immediately.
  6. Mid-Season Tourney
  7. SSMTF Board Representation - see League website for current Directors list.
If you CANNOT make the meeting, please contact me to work out getting funds in, discussion of potential rule changes and voting.  If I don’t hear from you, I will expect to see you at the meeting!

Many thanks!
Dave Pitcher
