Deputy Commissioner’s Report
Bob Doherty reported on behalf of Sandy Blumberg who is absent. Bob read from an email report from Sandy. Sandy is receiving many complaints from officials that have yet to receive payment for working the SCAHA playoffs. Rinks/clubs should have already paid their officials for working the respective playoffs. Rinks/clubs are to submit their invoice and SCAHA to reimburse. Please email Sandy if there is a problem. There will be a rules committee meeting sometime in May hopefully before the May SCAHA board of directors’ meeting. Anyone interested should email Sandy. And finally, the bids for the CAHA mandated Tier II weekends have been sent out and Sandy is encouraging the rinks and clubs to submit bids.
Member Services – Wendy Goldstein informed the board that the names for the SCAHA league wide delinquency list needs to be submitted to her by April 24th. Please do not release families until their payment (if by check) clears the bank. Those clubs owing outstanding player fees must pay up as well. And finally, Wendy stated that clubs should make sure to be in attendance at the May SCAHA meeting in order to receive their SCAHA LOI’s.
Statistician – Annie Fisher informed the board that the statistics for the 2008-2009 season will be available on Sportability at the end of April. She will be emailing the club presidents her annual request for mailing addresses of players in order to mail out the hat trick, shut out and play maker patches.
