Executive Director report:
(A). Leagues: Spring youth leagues are
done. SeaGUL was dropped for this year due to lack of organizer time and
reduced demand due to Deluge practicing. Summer league sign-ups start this
week. We have fields to expand corporate league to 16 teams. New hat league
sign-ups scripts with our new on-line payment processing will be in place. Some
Tri-Cities folks want to run a league with DNW and we are working on that.
Chris Burke added that 56 teams are expected for the three summer leagues
combined (hat, team and corp) and most games will be at Shoreline. The ED will
put a timeline for all leagues onto the DNW website.
(B). Tournaments: Potlatch has a new party location; Port-a-Field deal for 32
reusable fields is done. Spring Reign MS had 27 Middle School teams and was a
great success, with $2,449 of merchandise sales as well. The Spring Reign High
School division will be May 31/June 1 in Burlington.
(C). Sign-ups are underway for Riot's annual clinic for women players.
(D). Financial: total cash assets of $83,499.86 are up 48% from last year (an
approximate $12,000 field expense to be paid accounts for part of the
difference). Jessica will research alternative ways to maximize benefits from
DNW's cash reserves.
(E) Deluge, the high school girls teams, made it to the National semi-finals
after a great fundraising effort to help them pay for the trip to Alabama.
(F) King County Parks and Recreation Levy vote is tomorrow.
