C. Ray will take over the Sponsorship Program in order to help get all sponsors up to date and paid prior to the beginning of the 2020 season.

D. Discussed and voted on a competitive balance of league teams for 2020. The plan of the BOD’s is to have:
1. Equal number of Tier 1, 2 & 3 players on each team
2. Enforced and overseen by each league director
3. League directors will notify each team manager/coach and explain how to identify and oversee the Tier each player is placed.

G. Dewey Hom & Mike Parson were recognized for their contributions to the league. Dewey has served on the BOD for 8 years and Mike served for 5 years. Both have resigned from the BOD for personal reasons, and a Thank You is certainly NOT enough. Their time and efforts are greatly appreciated, and their behind the scene efforts will be hard to duplicate. We wish the very best to Dewey who will continue to play & put efforts and time into the Senior Olympics Program.
Mike will also continue to play, but will also be able to spend more time with his wife who has some medical issues. We all wish her our best and ask for prayers.

Meeting was adjourned at 9:00 PM.

The purpose of the CSSA is to promote sportsmanship,
NOT gamesmanship.
