– Coaches game to be scheduled soon
-Majors league is limited to four “events” per week
-Marin Primary school has events on April 30th and May 20th that could cause scheduling issues. Joe and Jenn have proposed a plan to the school that would allow games to occur on those given dates but would require a handful of volunteers, on both days, to ensure we are directing traffic and keeping kids away from parking lot and areas set for staging of events. They will report back with their findings. Kim O’Connell volunteered to help create a document to allow people to volunteer on those days.
