OLD BUSINESS:

 

 

 

Website Update

Mike Hyatt

Please send pictures to gcfbod(@gcfsoccer.comto upload.

 

 

 

 

GCF hopes to have forms available on the website that Clubs can

 

 

 

download, complete online and submit to interested parties.

 

Build-Out Line

Mike Hyatt

Requests input from Clubs: general consensus is that not everyone is

 

 

 

interpreting the rule in the same way.

 

 

 

GCF will be sending emails to assigners requesting they meet with their

 

 

 

referees and discuss this rule.

 

 

 

A PowerPoint presentation is being worked on by one of the Assigners and

 

 

 

should soon be available for a\l to use.

 

 

 

New website shall have a Build-Out Line link for everyone to look at as

 

 

 

needed.

 

Game Reschedules

Mike Hyatt

We have been reviewing how other leagues across the country are dealing

 

 

 

with game reschedules.

 

 

 

Discussion:

 

 

 

Deadline ought to be 7 days: reschedule should be completed 7 days prior

 

 

 

to game.

 

 

 

If this is not completed 7 days prior, the game scheduled will remain and a

 

 

 

forfeit will be imposed.

 

 

 

Procedure would be done in writing (e-rnail] to Mike Sroka. A special email

 

 

 

will be set up for this topic only.

 

 

 

Rescheduling fee: $25.00 (after 10 day grace period at the beginning of the

 

 

 

season).

 

 

 

 

 

Another option is to create a Reschedule tab in the GCF website.

 

 

 

 

Mike Sroka asked all present ifthere is a serious objection to 7 day

 

 

 

 

deadline, and answer is no.

 

 

 

 

Teams that agree not to play may NOT enter a 0-0 score.

 

 

 

 

Mike Sroka states AM and PM requests are granted if possible, but it is not

 

 

 

 

always the case.

 

 

 

 

There is a fine in place for non-reporting of scores. So far this is not being

 

 

 

 

enforced, but ought to be.
