Due to poor attendance not a lot was accomplished but the election of officers for  2014/2015 is as follows:

President: Ken Smith

Vice President: Eric Birks

Secretary: Kyle Teixeira

Treasurer: Sergi Heidiman

VP Notes: John Lindsay has agreed to stay on as Player Agent. We need a COED representative to be nominated and voted on and the Head Umpire position may be up in the air after the fall 2014 season.

The following items were discussed:

  • Enforcing no alcohol in the park per parks and rec
  • Mandatory coaches meetings prior to each season
  • No pay no play prior to the start of each season. No exceptions
  • Updating rules

Score Submissions Change

Due to the new umpires, I am asking that all coaches text and or e-mail me the scores at the end of their games.

Either text them to: 928-846-5724

or e-mail them to: lhcsoftball@gmail.com

Next week I will be out of country so e-mail is the preferred method if you want the site updated in a timely manner. I am turning the phone off and I am not sure if the texts will go through when I return on the 12th.

Thank you very much for your help with this.
