    2. Waivers are being collected.They will be reviewed this week and any player without a waiver will not be able to participate in games until the waiver is signed.
    3. Please reference the published safety protocol guidelines.Guidelines were set up based on recommendations from Little League, the CDC, and the Macomb County Health Department.
  5. Field condition and facility update
    1. Tucker Fields 99% Finished.Just need to find the pegs for bases.Will be done this week.
    2. Trombley fields generally in good shape.Some grass encroaching on the outside of the field.Fencing to be ordered and installed for the South River field in the outfield.This will help keep people spread out when attending games.
    3. Yacks – The school district will not provide any assistance.Bases are aligned and pegs found.Fencing is still lifted in areas
    4. Neil Reid – No issues.
  6. Open discussion on communication.  Text lists will be established for communication of field issues with each division.Meeting notices will go out earlier with text messages, emails, facebook posts.
  7. Field manager position clarification.To help improve communication and clarity, the field manager position will be formally added to the league by-laws with clearly stated responsibilities.  Namely, the position will be required to submit formal written field reports at each board meeting.  This will serve to document the field condition and any specific needs.  The Board will be responsible for addressing the needs of each field as needed considering the field managers recommendations.
  8. Fundraising.Quarantine bottle drive was a huge success.  Almost more than we could manage.  Given difficulties returning such a large quantity of bottles to local grocery stores, Jed and Chris found a place that will take them in bulk.  Bags to be received this week.
