Jack Underwood stated that this will be his last meeting as AD for Cut Bank. He’s moving to Laurel.


No corrections or additions to minutes. Brian motioned to accept. Seconded by Dustin. Motion passed.


Discussion regarding no zone in the 7th grade basketball took place. Valier said they would not like zone in 7th grade. Shelby concurred. Most discussion said that no zone should remain in 7th grade. How is it going to be officiated? No motion.


Discussion of the 10-point no zone rule for 8th grade. Most agreed that zone should be allowed all throughout the game. Motion to eliminate in constitution the no zone rule once ahead by 10 points—it should be no press should by allowed once ahead by 10 points. Motioned. Seconded. Motion passed.


Wrestling scheduling and weight class discussion took place. Wrestling coaches felt that their season was a lot shorter than volleyball. Both were confirmed to be 8 weeks long. There was a concern that the wrestling season overlapped track this year.


Wrestling weight classes discussion regarding the upper end of the weight classes possibly to add a super heavy weight class. Motion to schedule wrestling but to put the discussion on the fall meeting once we can talk to our wrestling coaches. Motion seconded. Passed unanimously.


Wrestling scheduling discussion again took place. Coaches can schedule duals and triangulars on weekdays and keep weekend meets.


Constitutional wording changes such as discipline for major rule infractions discussion took place. Heart Butte has missed the last two scheduling meetings. Brian moved that NMSAA remove Heart Butte from the NMSAA for the 2006-2007 school year.


5 Minute recess.


Reconvened. Previous motion repeated. Passed unanimously. Heart Butte will be sent a letter.  .


Boarding Dorm membership was discussed. Problems discussed such as kids not staying at the BD, but not living there. How does this stop an all star team from being formed? Boarding Dorm. The constitution states that the following schools are members of the NMSAA. Should we change the constitution to state that the Boarding Dorm has been grand-fathered in to the league. Browning says they don’t have a problem with the Boarding Dorm being in the league. Request that Browning and the Boarding Dorm police themselves about eligibility and kids staying at the Boarding Dorm. When the BD were admitted to the NMSAA, most Ads thought it was a school. The big problem is whether or not


Motion: The Boarding Dorm has been grand-fathered into our league as a separate entity and not a school. The constitution wording needs to be changed. Seconded. Motion:  passed with one opposed.
