Dave Ramsey about Springfield's 2 man system, referee fees, field conditions.

Chris Gaspar's SFC 90 Premier game with Oscar Lambdin's team. (Motion passed that Jerry Bordenkircher will investigate and Jay Ray, as the Board representative, will establish proper action such as forfeit, no game, or play the game with when and where.)

Ron Mentgen's request for assessment against SASA (referred to Appeals & Protests).

Scheduling & Format:

- Recommended that the spring "Call for Teams" be sent by 1/4/99, and returned by 1/15/99; or, if late, teams will be assessed a $50.00 late fee.

WEB Report:

- Bob asked that the Call-for-Teams on the WEB have a generic return date for each year like 1/15 for the Spring and 7/15 for the fall.

- 757 hits.

Old Business

- License clinics-- need to hear from Lou Basso concerning license clinics at Sporting FC.

- Next fall U10 State Cup will not have a playoff-- just round-robin.

- The state IYSA is coordinating constitutions changes with National-- we may need changes.

- Changes to the Tampering rules are being considered that, once rostered, would restrict transferring to another team the rest of the year.

- Entry into the Region II super league will be by tournament playoff format, not by State Cup results.

 Respectfully Submitted
Mike Cotner
