Treasurer?s Report: Treasurer?s report: $500.07 in checking account.
Majority of football coaches said that they didn't like the idea regarding no rush on PAT. Conrad liked the idea. Others felt that then defense couldn't work on blocked kicks or snaps over the head
of the kicker. No motion was made; therefore, rush is on PATs are allowed.
SB wants a clarification on VB rosters. DLS's roster needed clarification. Some players on coach's roster were not listed on the website roster. Scott Reding said that we have the roster rule because
Heart Butte was sometimes allowing players to play on two teams. Jim said that the rule is there for the initial roster being sent in, but we don't have a consequence that if the roster has changed or added
and has not been updated. Discussion took place regarding what constitutes a VB roster. Motion made by SB to change Girls' volleyball section 3, letter D, strike "both dark and light uniform" and strike
last sentence "if schools don't have both dark and light uniforms, they are to designate this on the roster." Motion seconded. Discussion took place regarding the time period in which to change roster.
It was noted that we have 21days Vote passed unanimously.
Motion to add roster rules from last part of basketball section G to volleyball section was made. Motion was seconded. Vote passed unanimously.
Motion made if a game is played with someone who is not on the roster, then the game is forfeited and add this to the roster section of basketball and volleyball. Motion was seconded. Discussion followed.
It was said to use the master roster for the website. An injury question regarding the athlete's name being removed from the roster for a game was made. This is not a problem; it is only regarding adding
someone new to the roster. Vote passed unanimously.
There was discussion about Heart Butte volleyball teams forfeit to DLS & BMSb as they didn't play these games, and they had three weeks to make these games up. Motion made to have HB forfeit their
unplayed VB games as per prior precedence. Motion was seconded. Vote passed unanimously.
Discussion took place to have Jim G. draft a letter to HB discussing that they will be removed from the NMSAA because of non-participation in athletic events and meetings. Jim will email me the letter and
will email it also to Shelly and the principal of the MS and District Supt. I will then send a letter each to Shelly and the Supt. by certified mail.
VB seeding took place.
DLS is requesting to amend their 7th grade roster for this tournament. It will be 5th & 6th graders. No 7th graders who quit will play. SB wants to make that no 8th graders play on it. Most towns agree that
SB make this decision. We do have it written in the constitution that rosters can be changed at this seeding meeting. Gail suggested that they drop to the last seed if this change is allowed because this isn't
the same team that they played with all season. Motion made to let DLS 7th representatives play in the tournament, but they would be placed at the 12th seed. Motion seconded. Vote-all yea except
Sunburst and Browning opposed. Motion passed.
An email was sent to Gail Davis regarding 7th grade teams being allowed to start serves on end line. 8th grade teams will have foot faults called. We also requested that she set up refs for tournament week
except for those played at CJI & Fairfield.
Track entries done on computers.
