I hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather. Now that ball season has ended we have one last piece of business to close out our year. We have already begun working on next year so we would like to make notice of our Annual General Meeting.
The AGM has been scheduled for Thursday, November 17th at 8 pm.
It will be held at Louie’s on Lewis – 84 Lewis Rd, Guelph.
We are collecting the keys at this meeting so please be sure to bring them with you. If you fail to return your keys, you will be charged a fine of $200.
As always, fines will be charged to any teams not represented at this meeting. We will discuss any and all proposed Rule changes and Constitutional Proposals.
Constitutional and/or Playing Rule Changes
As stated under Section 7(a) of the Constitution:
Suggested changes to either the League Constitution or the Rules of Play must be made in writing and provided to the League President at least 14 days prior to the Annual General Meeting.
As I am a little late in sending the notice of the AGM out, if you would like to submit a rule change or constitutional proposal it must be received by me no later than Sunday, November 6th to be included in the AGM and to be voted on to be in effect for the 2017 playing season.
Just a reminder – when you do submit constitutional proposals, I read them as they are written. I cannot read between the lines so make your points and thoughts well documented.
BRING YOUR KEYS!!!

We will also elect the Executive for the 2017 season.
Election of League Officials – As stated under Section 3 (a) of the Constitution:
The term of office is from December 1 through to November 30. Written nominations for League Executive positions shall be received by the President before the end of October. Seeing that none have been received, and the current Executive members have all expressed their interest to stay on for another term, all positions have been acclaimed.
Assuming that all teams are returning for the 2017 season, Performance bonds will be carried forward to next year unless you request a refund from Bob. If you have a question about Performance Bonds and amounts remaining, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Bob can give you an update. Any teams that received debits or credits throughout the year, those would also be applied to the Performance bond.
You do not have to be the team rep to attend the AGM, however your team will only receive one vote on any matter.
In keeping with the request to have meeting notes sent out in advance if there are any motions put forth, I will forward them by the end of next week.
Oh, and one more thing… BRING YOUR KEYS!!!
