    5) 2010 Actual Budget & 2011 Proposed Budget reviewed:

    2010 season saw a total surplus of $2648.64 for an account balance of $10,677.82. Surplus came from regular season fees and sponsorship ($2,648.64), league final beer gardens ($0.00 due to rain out) and league final dance ($0.00 due to cancelled dance). Discussion held and determined that larger season profit came from unused diamonds due to rainouts. Decided to use surplus and build account for potential diamond renovations or towards cost of possible new future diamonds. Teams attending the AGM will receive a $50 credit towards their league fees due to rained out league final games. The 2010 budget was accepted as read.

    2011 proposed budget would see teams attending AGM being charged $450 for league play. Returning teams not attending the AGM or new teams will be charged $500. This will result in a 2011 anticipated deficit of $1600. The deficit will result in teams being refunded $50 for the cancelled league finals. With the finals cancelled last year the league made a profit from cancelled diamonds that was applied to this year’s budget resulting in the proposed deficit. The league final beer gardens are projected to earn $250.00 profit after paying umps that are hired for 2011 league final games. The league final dance is projected to earn $1500.00 after splitting costs with the group working the dance. The projected profit in 2011 after all revenues is projected at $150.00. The proposed budget was accepted as proposed.

    The break down for league fees was discussed and accepted. League fees to be $500 in 2011 to cover following: $290 regular season diamonds, $42 league final diamond cost, $63 game balls and score sheets, $90 insurance & prizing and $15 administration costs. Returning teams that attended the AGM would be charged only $450. Returning fall league teams would only be charged $350 for league fees in 2011 due to a majority of their games being rained out last fall. Game ball costs are slightly reduced in 2011 due to left over 2010 league final balls.

    6) League & Year End Format Discussed:

    With the 2010 league playoffs being rained out it was decided that the initial 2011 CMSP team division seeding would be obtained from the 2010-second half regular season standings. The top team in each division would move up and the bottom team drops down. In the event a team did not return this year then the next highest team within a lower division would move up. The 2010 final second-half standings finished as follows:

    It was announced during the meeting that the Warriors (A-Div), Prairie Gnomes (A-Div), Round Hill Bisons ((B-Div) & CRC (E-Div) were not returning to league play in 2011. This will result in at least two teams moving up in each division and none will be relegated to the lower division to start the 2011 season.

    New CMSP teams will be seated in lowest division unless special circumstances dictate for executive to vote and place a new team into a higher division.

    1st half of 2011 season (division seeding). To be played similar as last year where teams play each other within division. Top seed moves up one division while bottom team drops to lower division.

    2nd half of 2011 season (playoff seeding). To be played similar to last year where teams get seeded for playoffs. Top two teams get first round bye in double knockout league final tournament.

    The league playoffs will be similar to the previous years with a double knockout format. Winners and runner up in each division win SPN prizing. Top team moves up to next division in 2012, while last place team in division drops a division next year. Decided to hand out prizing at main diamond at the conclusion of all finals. League wind up to follow with dance after the finals on Saturday similar format to last year. Rain out will result in the finals being played in the alternative weekend as outlined previously. Committee will be formed by V.P. to plan and organize this year’s dance.

    Fall League discussed and decided to run it the similar format as last year. Fall league will be fun with no standings recorded and run for six weeks. Decided to make it one nine inning game as it begins to get darker a lot quicker.

    7) Diamond availability discussed with possible options:

    Decided to use the late game under the lights as a feasible option if required. It was decided that the option of using out of town diamonds not be used unless absolutely required. The league will be capped at 30 teams again to ensure there is sufficient diamond availability for all games.

    8) Diamond Renovations / Construction / Fund Raising Ideas:

    Decided to keep building funds towards potential of diamond renovations or new diamond construction. Dave Borman advised that Minor Ball will be moving forward with discussions with City of Camrose to determine if construction of diamonds in the near future in possible.

    CMSP will support Minor Ball in this venture and provide support when required. No committee to be formed at this time and executive will liaise with Minor Ball to determine status of any proposal.

    A suggestion was put forth to potentially consider lengthening the fence at K1 and putting in a fence on K4 should a new baseball diamond facility be built. This would provide a very feasible option of having four good diamonds at one location for CMSP league games and potential slo-pitch tournaments.

    9) Review Rules & proposed changes:

    Rules reviewed and no changes recommended.

    Teams reminded of rule implanted last year that second scheduled double-header games under the lights must start at 8:45 pm and teams will not start a new inning after 11:30 PM. This means that early games will not start a new inning after 8:30 PM.

    10) League Sponsorship – Proposed that Geo’s Sport’s Lounge & Battle River Hockey Plus will sponsor league again in 2011. CMSP web site will continue to have sponsors listed in 2011.

    11) Website – provided CMSP website address to teams for updates (

    12) League Bylaw Implementation discussed and following agreed in 2010 and reviewed and will continue in 2011:

    -2011 returning teams required to attend AGM and will have voting representation. New teams will not have voting representation. Returning teams that do not attend AGM will be assessed a $50 penalty on their league fees for the upcoming year.
    -$100 deposit required from all teams on registration night & to secure a spot in league play. New teams will be allowed into league on an availability basis. Remaining league fees as set out at the AGM will be due on package night.

    Trevor Vinet – V.P. (1 year term)
    Tammy Chartrand – Secretary Treasurer (1 year term)
    Brian Hoglund – Director (1 year term)
    Lindsey Seto – Director (1 year term)

    Rick Marcinkowski took the opportunity to thank the CMSP executive for all their hard work in getting the CMSP league to it’s present 30 team successful status. Rick advised that due to other pressing commitments that he will not be seeking another term and stepping down as president. Rick Marcinkowski also announced that after 27 years the Camrose Warriors would no longer be playing as a team this year. The Warriors exit the CMSP league as League Champions for seven consecutive years. On behalf of the Warriors, Rick thanked all the teams that competed against them for the past several years and wished good luck to all teams in the future.

    Wes Harrison requested that a social committee be formed similar to last year to plan for league final dance. Trevor Vinet to oversee committee.

    Wes Harrison to liaise with Jim Cook and work on scheduling for 2011 season.

    Brian Hoglund will be responsible to deal with disputes or complaints received from teams and will update executive as required.

    Tammy Chartrand to complete books as in previous years.

    Wes Harrison will run with set up of league final, prepare for AGM, liaise with SPN and update league standings. Oversee daily operations of league.

    Lindsey Seto will be provided assignments once Wes Harrison has a chance to settle into his new position.

    Rick Marcinkowski will assist as past president with the CMCP Registration Night on April 7th to assist Wes Harrison with transition as new incoming president.

    14) Open discussion held for any other non-listed agenda items:

    Maggie Gibbens requested clarification on time lights shut off for late games. Decided president will follow up with Jim Cook to clarify that lights to remain on till 11:45 PM. Suggested grounds keeper checks with teams and let them play out last inning if near done.

    Wes Harrison advised that scheduling is difficult and teams may appear as first team (home team) on schedule more than anticipated. The best will be done to draft schedule with equal home games however this is not always possible due to special requests. Wes reminded that teams would have to consider this fact if they get scheduled for more home games then other teams. The team listed first of the schedule handed out at package night will be considered the home game.
