Hello yet again!

The dates, times and venue for the 2021 CSMS League Drafts have been set. All four drafts will be held in the conference room at the Triwood Community Centre.

  • AAA Draft: Wednesday, 23 June, 6:00pm
  • Dayball Draft: Thursday, 24 June, 6:00pm
  • AA Draft: Friday, 25 June, 6:00pm
  • A Draft: Sunday, 27 June, 6:00pm

IMPORTANT! NOTE: Each team is allowed to have ONLY a manager, a coach and one non-playing advisor present. The draft is not open to anyone else.

If the Communications Director/Website Manager has his act sufficiently together, all players should get an email generated by Team Pages informing them of their 2021 team and inviting them to join it by signing in to TeamPages. That notification should come well within 24 hours of the draft. Your new coach and or/manager will also likely call you to welcome you to your team and etc.

Looking forward to another excellent summer of CSMS League slo-pitch!

Best,

Hello all,

We’re getting closer to opening the 2021 CSMS League season the week of July 5th. The various drafts, clinics and evaluation sessions will be held in the two weeks running up to the season start.

The 2021 Evaluation Session will be held on Monday, June 21st at the Charleswood 2 diamond.

Any player new to the league since the end of the 2019 season is required to attend or they will not be drafted. The schedule is as follows:

  • 5:00-6:20pm 63 years and older
  • 6:20-7:40pm 58-62 years old
  • 7:40-9:00pm 57 years and younger

If rained out, the same schedule will be followed on Tuesday, June 22nd, same diamond.

Participants have been notified by phone of their time-slot. If you are new and haven’t gotten a phone call, follow this schedule.

The evaluation session is not a big deal. You’ll just be asked to select and hit 10 pitches or so, and to field a few ground balls or fly balls. Coaches from all the teams will be there to watch so that they have a rough idea of your athletic ability prior to drafting you.

Other spectators will be allowed only if their presence doesn’t violate current AHS guidelines on outdoor gatherings.

Best of Luck!

Sorry, boys – the link I provided in the previous email doesn’t appear to work, and will probably give you a warning message if you click on it.

Instead, scroll to the bottom of the email and click on the attached document where it says: “Click here to view the document.”

That should download the document to your browser where you can open it.

TeamPages would like to take this opportunity to apologize for being a big pain in the ass.

Hello all:

The status is as of June 08, 11:00 am. Registration ends on June 14.

If you withdrew for 2021, this is your last chance to change your mind about whether or not you want to play or not.

Some of you have not paid either us or Alberta 55. You are not registered until you do.

Make sure you are registered for what you signed up (check the Reg 4 column).

  • RO Rolled over into Fulltime player from 2020
  • FT Full time player (probably signed up in 2021)
  • Dbb Playing both AAA/AA day and “regular” evening ball

  • Rep Replacement player
  • Alum Alumnus – no need for Alberta 55
  • Oth Other
  • P Haven’t received your payment
  • W If your status starts with a “W”, you have withdrawn for 2021

Examples: If your status is “5, A”, you are in the draft pool. If your status is “A”, we’re missing something from you.

If you disagree with your status, please email me at john.sch@shaw.ca or call at 403 455-0723. If you want to change your registration, please phone me first – there may be an easy way to do it.

Cooler Left at Charleswood 1 Yesterday

Hello all,

Paul McNeil found this cooler on the bleachers at Charleswood 1 after a practice about 4:15 yesterday.

Since it had some beers in it, and alcohol is prohibited on City diamonds, of course there is no way it could belong to anyone in our league. But perhaps one of you knows the non-league person who left it there.

If so…have them contact Paul McNeil at Paul.McNeil85@GMail.com….!

Cheers – no, strike that…Best Regards,
