September Executive Board Meeting
Submitted By Sarah Santos on Monday, August 26, 2019
Our September Board meeting will be held on Thursday, September 12th from 7:00-9:00pm at 561 Southdale Rd E unit 8a (name of office is BNB Financial Group).

If you are interested in attending the meeting, but are unable to drive to get to Southdale Road, please message one of our board members and they will arrange to pick you up. 

**Further to an email that was sent out from Nelson Park Softball on August 1st, Nelson Park Softball finds itself without sufficient members on its Board of Directors to be able to offer our T-Ball and 5 Pitch Divisions for next year’s 2020 Baseball Season. 
This decision comes with great regret, as it will mark the first time in over 40 years Nelson Park will find itself unable to run these programs.   If you are an individual who is organized, and has a few hours a week to spare to help us out, we are looking for the following positions to be filled immediately:  

Tball Convenor – looking for a minimum of 1 person, ideally 2-3 people. Convenors are responsible for the opening and closing of the diamonds each night, as well as being the communication between the board of directors to coaching staff and parents. This position requires you to be at the diamonds for each  game to be able to answer any questions brought forth and to communicate back to the board or directors.

Five Pitch Convenor - looking for a minimum of 1 person, ideally 2-3 people. Convenors are responsible for the opening and closing of the diamonds each night, as well as being the communication between the board of directors to coaching staff and parents.
This position requires you to be at the diamonds for each  game to be able to answer any questions brought forth and to communicate back to the board or directors.

Equipment Manager – responsible for packing team and equipment bags at the beginning of the year and replacing as necessary  


Please note, although Tball and Five Pitch are currently suspended for the 2020 season, our CSL Girls program offerings remain unaffected. For all girls between the ages of 8 and 20 who are interested in registering for a spot on our Mite, Squirt, Novice, Bantam, Midget, or Junior team entries in the Community Softball League (CSL) in 2020, please
contact Tina Riccoban at 519-200-0700.    

If the Board receives enough serious offers from individuals about volunteering for the vacant Board positions by October 31, the outgoing board may decide that the organization will be able to resurrect the suspended programs for 2020.  The assistance of several committed individuals will be needed to fill the vacant positions. If you feel that you are able to dedicate time and effort to making these divisions a go for next year, please email the association at [email protected] and let us know.
