November Board Meeting

The Board authorized:
- Creation of a Challenger Division for individuals with physical or intellectual challenges.  For more information, see our Challenger webpage.
- Selected uniforms for the upcoming year.  Uniforms will be consistent with the prior year with the exception of moving softball divisions to a girls-style pant.
- Voted to move B-Minor Division to a pitching machine.  This division has historically not had any interleague play, and usually has 3 teams which play each other all season.  Moving to the machine will allow them to play Hebron, Wheatfield and Roselawn teams.  Additionally, it will allow the players to develop more hitting and fielding skills and encourage the game to move faster.
- Adopted a budget for the upcoming year.  An infographic is being developed to share with parents so they know where their money goes and what it costs to run the league.
- Adopted a calendar for the upcoming year, including moving Picture Day to the Tuesday before Opening Day instead of the night before.  See the online calendar for the latest season dates.
- Set registration fees as follows:
      -- Early bird pricing: $95 for all players until 12/31/2019
      -- January 1st to February 6th: $105 for the first player in a family, then $95 for all additional players
      -- February 7th to March 8th: $105 for all players
      -- Registration will close on March 8th
- Voted to proceed with an Opening Day Raffle, and to require each family to participate by selling 10 tickets at $5 each. 
- Adopted a new Constitution.  This is being reviewed by Little League International; if approved, it will be posted on the website.
- Approved slight adjustments to the boundaries, which do not affect any current players.  The changes will ensure that the boundaries with Wheatfield line up to elementary school districts, making sure that players who go to school together are playing together.
