  1. GROUP D
  All members present discussed the issue of aggressive play at length. Feedback from two coaches who could not make it but provided e-mail correspondence were also tabled at the discussion. Solutions ranged from the cancellation of the remainder of the season for this group to suspensions and fines for certain aggressive players only. In the end it was decided that a letter would be drafted by Heather and presented to every player on Friday night. The letter would outline the concerns of the league for player safety and remind all players of the spirit of this league. Adrian and Milt would be refereeing this Friday and would speak to each team before their respective games. Suspensions would be handed out if necessary to players whose play was determined to be overly aggressive by the referees. 

    Coaches were to be reminded that they had the support of the executive to sit or even suspend players whose play was disrespectful, dangerous, and unacceptable based on the ethos of play fair, play safe, and have fun.  


    The Pizza Party will be held on March 21st, 2009 upstairs at the WMMC for groups A-C. A schedule is going to be produced by Heather based on when teams play that day. It is anticipated that Pizza and Drinks will be available from 11:00AM-2:00PM that day. Each player and coach will be entitled to two slices of pizza and a drink.
