Hello All,
We hope you and your families are well and safe. As we say goodbye to the oddest year we have ever seen we hope that 2021 will be much better.  We now have Zoom so that we can touch base with everyone.  We will be posting the test on the website so please keep an eye out for that.  We will set up Zoom meetings so we can go over the test.  Everyone will need to be on a Zoom meeting or take and send the test answers to me.  We didn’t charge a fee for this as our way of saying thank you and so it would be one thing people didn’t have to think about.  We are holding a new umpire class on Zoom starting in January.  Our board has not been able to meet but will be able to with Zoom.  I think that not having our annual meeting is the safe bet.  As the board starts to get back together we need to look at changing our annual meeting because it is very expensive to rent the hall and have breakfast ($3500/$4000).  It will be something that we talk about moving forward.  Our goal is to grow and train umpires.  I just wanted to reach out to everyone and pass along our wish that 2021 will be better and we can get on the field together. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
