UPDATES FROM YOUR LEAGUE EXECUTIVE ...
Happy New Years Everyone,
Your league executive team hopes that each of you has been able to enjoy a great Christmas and are remaining focused on positive opportunities/outcomes with yourself, family, friends and co-workers.
Next, with the ever increasing improved COVID mitigations along with reality of vaccines against it, the Mississauga Touch Football League is planning for a season this coming spring. For example, the league executive will continue to meet monthly as well as host a monthly "check-in / dashboard" (WEBEX or ZOOM) call with all team captains with the expectation that the league operate a full season in its typical time-frame (of mid-May to early Sept, weeknights).
Please continue to monitor your email and the league's website for further announcements.
On that note, stay safe, stay well and stay ready for competitive, fun and safe touch football.
Your 2020 Executive
SEASONS GREETINGS FROM YOUR EXECUTIVE TEAM
On behalf of the entire Executive team, please have a joyful and safe Christmas/New Years.
We look forward to the possibility of touch football this coming May-2021 and as we move towards that goal please also continue to keep the less fortunate in mind. Although our league's "STEP IT UP" campaign has reached its goal please consider further donations to the MISSISSAUGA FOOD bank at this very special time of year because many continue to go without food.
Again, best of everything to all and Seasons Greetings to you, your family, friends and co-workers.
The 2020 Executive Team
CONDOLENCES TO FRED FAZOLARI FAMILY (FRED'S BAR AND GRILL)
With much sadness, the MTFL expresses its condolences to the Fazzolari family for the passing of Fred Fazzolari, the owner/proprietor of 'Fred's Bar and Grill', on-28-Oct-2020.
The restaurant, located very close to our main lit football field (Mississauga Valleys), has been a popular gathering spot for teams to meet and unwind after games, practices, tournaments, and enjoy their team-mates' and opponents' company.
If you were a frequented patron of the restaurant, you surely would have met Fred, who had been a supporter of our league and sports teams in the Mississauga area.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING MESSAGE FROM YOUR EXECUTIVE TEAM
MTFL Captains, Admins, players, fans and all other valued supporters/suppliers:
1. First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving. May you have a terrific and safe long weekend!
2. Next, for those of you enjoying Trillium Tour "Nationals" this very long weekend, please continue to provide safe, competitive and fun games to your opponents as well as the tournament organizers and supporters.
3. Next, as for the MTFL our focus turns towards our next season -- spring 2021. Planning will begin for it around Christmas time with announcements coming to all teams/players no later than early Feb-2021.
4. Mean-time, for the recently completed MTFL 2020-COVID19 mini-season, here are some things to be very thankful for in our league as we continue to grow our sport:
a) over $3500 in (direct and indirect) donations to the league ... which was used to purchase two sets of pinnies for future tryout days/events, a quantity of 36 "COVID19 Hero" program reward golf shirts as well over 200 face-masks for the eight teams that did chose to muster to play a few games this year.
b) almost $3000 in monetary donations made (so far) to MTFL's "step it up" campaign for the Mississauga Food Bank ... which has purchased nearly 6000 meals for those in need.
c) the continued support of all teams to create and/or provide safe, competitive and fun touch football opportunities for adults to enjoy.
Your Executive Team
UPDATES FROM YOUR MTFL-2020 EXECUTIVE TEAM -- SEASON HAS CONCLUDED.
1. It is likely our COVID19 mini-season has concluded; e.g., early this week 3 of the 4 intended WEEK#4 game matches were completed.
2. It is unlikely this league can secure a "lit field" permit for any further weekday evening this fall as these fields are already booked by other leagues that normally operate at this time of year OR, as COVID19 restrictions put in place (or even reverted) do not align with the group size (per site) we would need to operate.
3. However, there are still a couple of things to occur before we officially close off this season:
a) we are so close to our goal of raising $2000 for the Mississauga Food Bank. If you have not yet considered a donation, please do so now. Make sure you make that donation (and get the income tax receipt for yourself) through the link below.
b) the league still is in process of getting all teams (mustered ones or not) one "COVID19 Hero" golf shirt. Many teams have their shirt now. An executive member will be in touch with your captain shortly to arrange for delivery of your team's shirt.
c) Yes, photographic services were provided for Week#4. The league expects to publish the photos to its FACEBOOK account within the next 14 business days for everyone to enjoy.
d) We are still looking to update website with actual outcomes this year. As for now, NEWS bullets contain game results.
MTFL 2020 President
