BOSL NEWS – President's Message 2020
Welcome to the 2020 Season!
Greetings Fellow BOSL Members,
We are only 4 months away from the 2020 BOSL season which starts with the annual draft on March 7, 2020. As most of you should be aware, we held our Annual General Meeting on October 24th where we closed off the 2019 season and brought in the 2020 season with the vote for the new Board of Directors. Other than myself, the 2020 Board of Directors include:
- Carl Camilleri – Vice President
- Steve Bourke – IT Director and Sponsorship
- Darren Anderson – Tournament Director
- Dale Latendresse – Treasurer
- Kevin Roseneck – Umpire Chief and Equipment
- Brian Bishop – Membership Director
- Jarrod Schankula – Secretary
- Jim Seely – Social Director
A special thanks to those Board Members who finished out their terms:
Ron Evinou, John Andersen, Scot Cameron, Steve Rowsell and Peter Conick
All 5 of them served the Board well and volunteered hundreds of hours of their personal time to make our league what it is. Special mention to Scot Cameron and John Andersen who served multiple terms on the Board and have decided to withdraw from playing. Hopefully, just for a year or two.
The Board of Directors have already started planning the events for 2020 including the Tournaments, the Golf Tournament and the Awards Banquet. Please check the “Events” section of the web site for the key dates for 2020.
The year 2020 will mark the 40th season for the BOSL so we plan to try and make this a special year for the league. Our uniforms will include an additional logo and we are looking at some other special activities.
It feels like we just finished the Year End tournament but I’m looking forward to the 2020 season already!!
Thanks for all of your support and best wishes for the Holidays
We are excited to announce our continued support of the Burlington Food Bank ! Myself and members of the Board had the opportunity to tour their facility and see exactly where donations go. Their organization is 100% funded by support of charitable donations.
Through our visit we were made aware that this food bank is responsible for feeding over 300 families in the Burlington area in addition to supplying food to local parishes and many other support groups within the City of Burlington. Giving back to the Community is what differentiates the BOSL from any other league. We look forward to your continued support through our various fundraising efforts during the course of the season.
In closing, I would like to thank the continued efforts of our Board of Directors, the support of our Sponsors, and all of our volunteers that make the overall BOSL experience a great one!
