Good day everyone, Trustee Scrappy here with the final reminder that at 7pm this evening I will be doing the drawing for the historical society contest!! Stay tuned, and if you still haven't sent me your entry, you have until 630 tonight 🙂 To re-cap: if you are the captain of a club who currently is partnered with an historical society, I wanna hear about it- the good and the bad. All captain names will be entered to win a hand made cockade in the colors of their club. Email your submissions to: evettejacobson@yahoo.com (example below of the prize) ...

The VBBA Treasurer Paul Scooter Zeledon updates the VBBA paid membership list monthly.

We have had this issue come up in the past. The VBBA newsletter goes to whoever pays for the the ball clubs membership in the VBBA. That person may not be the team captain. If the club contact person does not distribute the VBBA Newsletter the players may never get their copy.

There are several ways to address this issue. One would be if the member clubs want to forward their contact list to the VBBA, we will add all of the players to the newsletter distribution list. The other is to simply email the newsletter editor, currently Dennis Pops Wiegmann, at dennis.wiegmann@vbba.org, and he will take care of it. Most newspapers offer that service.

Finally, as Pops is fighting off a hard case of influenza, I will review the VBBA Facebook page and see that each person from a paying member club that had a problem getting a newsletter receives a copy.

I will review the clubs they are on to see who their contact person is.
