President’s Report

The President, Nickie Fetzko presented materials for later discussion.


            Association Manager’s (AM) Report

      The AM expressed some frustrations regarding the preparation of the materials for submission to CTF, namely the membership and sanction applications.  Ideally each league should present these materials no later than a month after the league start date. This year the AM has delayed CTF submission due to “issues” regarding tardiness of league submissions. Accurate record keeping and validation of  Paid in other League” bowlers are only possible when all leagues have presented. The AM expressed a wish for a CDTBA policy on League submissions.

Youth: Much discussion regarding the youth league situation in the CDTBA. The profile of  the youth membership this year is such that an elected youth board is warranted. Nicole Fetzko, as well as other youth officials, have facilitated the Youth election process, which will be held on November 12th, 2005. The rules of governance for youth leagues need to be followed.
