Hello Everyone,

(PLEASE DISREGARD previous messages on this topic)

I was asked by our League President Ron DiPasquale to Post this Document for all the Members
of CSMS 55+ to review.

It covers Special Resolutions and has simplified the Wording.
This will be reviewed at our next board meeting, which is scheduled for Wed April 5th. In accordance with the societies act this should be posted before our spring GM, which is scheduled for Wed April 12th at Triwood Community Center, Collingwood Room, 6pm-9pm.

AA Manager Search - Condition Critical

Posted by Paul McNeil at Mar 16, 2023 6:01PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Hey Everyone,

Time is getting short for our AA Manager Search !!
Come on guys, we are getting desperate for someone to step up and manage one of our AA Teams.
Come join the Ranks of all the other Volunteers that help make this Awesome League Run !!
Yes that’s right, we are all volunteers. All the Managers and Coaches, all the Board members, myself
included volunteer for this league.

No more thinking about doing it, we need you to do it !!

This isn’t rocket science and will not take up much of your time.
It’s just a matter of reminding the players to bring their gloves when they run onto the field, show them which end of the bat is where they hit the ball, try to keep them awake, assign one guy each game to buy the Beers at JT’s afterwards etc etc.
I mean seriously, have you seen the other managers, if they can do it surely you can to !
(no disrespect intended to any other managers)

Please send me an email back ASAP so we can close this off of our Books.

Thanks Guys,
Paul M

Quick Registration Update

Posted by Paul McNeil at Mar 16, 2023 1:01PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Hi Everyone,

Wow, what a Beautiful day out there in Calgary today !!
Feels like Spring is not too Far away and feels like, ’Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life"
(inside joke)

Quick update for everyone.
As of a few moments ago and with less than a month to go until registration ends,
we have 229 Registered People.
and that number includes 23 New Players and 9 Returning (after an absence Players)

Looks like we are on track to be hitting our regular quota for the 2023 registration numbers we need for AAA, AA
and A Division. With Monday Rec still to be determined, but it looks to be 3-4 teams.
So, for all you late registrants, please sign up soon so as to not miss a potential player
Cap. Once we hit the numbers for these teams you do not want to be left out.
After we hit last years team numbers we need enough players signing up after that to fill complete new additional teams.
So if 2 or 3 guys sign up late that won’t be enough for an additional team. We want more teams to be sure, but we need a big push to get there.
Don’t be left in no mans land guys.
Please Get signed Really Soon.

Cheers Everyone,
Paul M
