Arnie opened the BEERS game to both leagues this year, but there was not enough participation form the recreational leagues to field the necessary teams.
A motion by Wayne and 2nd by Ken and all in favor to use the wood plates since it better helps everyone including umpires. There has been no problem from a safety standpoint.

Jack G. and Wayne will follow up on the proper verbiage to use on a 911 call for GT Bray and Palma Sola. They will also talk to the first responders on logistics and physical areas at the ball parks. Jack G. is waiting for a return call on the request for our 911 call on Feb 16 to determine what needs to be rectified for a quicker response by the EMT’s.
We have included in each first aid bag the procedure for addressing an injury or emergency situation at the ball fields.
A motion was made by Wayne and 2nd by Jack G and all in favor to obtain B & O insurance thru Smith Insurance Co. Jack G. will ask about coverage for umpires. It was decided that a board member will be responsible for calling a game due to lightning.

The next scheduled meeting will be set after we get our response and direction on the AED’s.
