The Board approved purchasing bag tags for Championship participants. The proposed 2016-17 budget was discussed item by item. No change in Championship fees or League fees is contemplated. The proposed budget includes a rebate for each League member to purchase Meet Manager 6.0. The Board approved the budget for presentation to the membership at the Spring League Meeting.
Spring Meeting Agenda: The Board reviewed and modified the agenda for the Spring League Meeting. Tom will prepare power point slides for the meeting. There are no candidates nominated for Aquatic Director or one of the At-Large Board positions.
Scheduling: Erik reported that some coaches inquired whether any Dual Meets could be scheduled for October. Although the League is unlikely to schedule a Dual Meet in October, if both teams agree and comply with the League roster rules, a meet may be rescheduled to that month.
Rule Changes: Bert presented four proposed rule changes for presentation at the Spring Meeting.
Calendar: A draft calendar for the 2016-17 League season was discussed and several changes/edits were made. The conflict between the Penn-Del League Meeting dates and the Middle Atlantic meeting date was discussed and possible solutions were offered. The proposed 2017 Spring Meeting date (April 29) will be presented to the membership to see if there are any possible conflicts.
