Meeting was called to order at 2:14 p.m. with the following members in attendance:
Vince Bell, Gord Ramsden, Glen Goetz, Jamie Perrett, Derrick Schultz, Allan Lark, Kevin McLane, Mike Renner, Tyson Goebel, Lido Lamberti, Rick Lavigne, and board members, Guy Hassler, Randy Boehm, and Shelley Bell.
Randy went over the financials that Shelley provided to all in attendance.
Kevin was questioning the amount for registration, Shelley pointed out that he was looking at this year’s and not last year’s sheet. Kevin was satisfied with the answer.
Jay wanted to discuss the $500 That was missing, misplaced by Michael Musqua, former treasurer, and was wondering why it was not listed in the financial statement. Shelley insured him that she would enter the amount on an updated statement.
Vince made motion to accept the financial statement as discussed, 2nd by Gord.
Financial statement accepted, with amendment to add in money owed to league.

Discussed the fact that this AGM was taking place long after the end of the season last year and that elections should take place later.
Jay made a motion that AGM, year end banquet and elections be on the same date within one month of the end of season play. 2nd by Alan. Carried
Discussed the two different scoresheets that Shelley had handed out. Shelley created two different sheets one for A and B division and one for C division if we needed with lower scores of 701 and 301. Most people felt there was no need for the lower scores. The board members agreed to not use the sheet with lower scores for the first half and look at it again in the second half.
Discussed what the constitution states as the guidelines that the venues are required to follow for league nights. We decided the board would go to Birmingham’s and Gaebel’s and ask if they are willing to upgrade the boards and lighting, and if they refuse to make the necessary changes they will be dropped as a league venue.
Vince made a motion that all venues meet all the requirements set forth in the constitution and if they don’t the league can drop them as a venue. 2nd by Glen. Amendment after discussion to add that the venues must meet requirements by the first week of play for the season. Carried.
Discussed the venue and team assignments, and the fact that if a member is responsible for signing on a venue that member’s team will have the option of being home team for that venue.
Discussed having an A and a B team at each venue; it was decided that this was not likely to be possible.
Jay made a motion that teams are grandfathered into home venues according to previous years if they choose and the venue agrees. All other open spots at the venues will be assigned by draft, except in the case of a new venue that was brought on by a team. 2nd by Kevin McLane. Amendment after discussion to add that if a team is eligible for grandfathering to a certain venue, but decide to move to a new venue, the team will lose their grandfathered status and will go into draw for new venue. Carried.
Jamie made a motion that we do not use home venues and that all teams just rotate through venues. 2nd by Vince. Defeated
