Follow-up on VISL Fine for BCSA form: The club will pay the fine for submitting the BCSA form to VISL late. There was a consensus that in the future the registrar will submit this form at the same time as registering the teams with VISL as it contains that same information as registration.
There were two field cancellations this weekend and the club received refunds.
There was a discussion about a fine the club received from VISL relating to game balls; however, Lee indicated that it is a conflict of interest as he is on the VISL board, abstained from the vote and did not provide opinion relating to a decision.
The club received two $50 fines for not purchasing new game balls for the Div 3 and 035 teams. This fine for not purchasing the game balls is not listed in the listed in VISL’s bylaws or rules, and the teams have been in compliance with the rule to have two acceptable game balls at each game. As a result, the club discussed the possibility of contesting the fine.
Tyson introduced a motion:
Matt to act on Castaways behalf to contact BCSA via phone, email or person relating to the fines that have been distributed by VISL.
Ryan Emo seconded the motion. Lee Johnson abstained from the vote. No executive opposed.

Tickets must say “includes beer” not call the beer free (beer is $3.75 to bar).
