HAPPY NEW YEARS AND BOOK YOU CALENDARS FOR THE 2019 AGM
Veteran and Candidate New teams alike,
Firstly, Happy New Years.
Rest assured the MTFL executive team is already taking steps to organize the upcoming 2019 season. For example, the Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held Wednesday, 27th-Mar-2019 (7:00pm start-time).
Further emails will be issued in the coming weeks but for now, please take note new for this year's AGM is the plan to offer a hot-meal/snack each of to the RSVP invitees as recognition of their time to come abd actually attend that very meeting in-person.
Finally, if you wish to join the 2019 Executive team please email the league no later than midnight 15th-Feb-2019. Specifically, the current executive may wish to briefly interview you as well as take steps to ensure that the AGM "package" contains a brief introduction of yourself and a clear indication of the roles/responsibilities to which you aspire (, etc.).
VP Operations, Finance Officer and Registrar (of the 201Eighteen AGM approved Executive team).
SEASONS GREETINGS EVERYONE
To all MTFL players, fans and valued referee and otherwise partners:
May you have a very Merry Christmas at this festive time of year and may you continue to enjoy the best of everything in the new year.
It is only three months to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) ... which will be held in late March-2019. Your current MTFL executive has begun the planning for the new spring season and some topics for which additional emails (or the AGM itself) will be used to discuss are:
- offering a hot meal to the invited (and confirmed) quests of the AGM. This is to attempt to gain an increase in actual attendance and to recognize our captains at that very meeting (for a job well done year-over-year).
- considering incorporation of the league as a NOT-FOR-PROFIT entity. This is to increase the protection towards liability of executive members and to continue to strive for preferential treatment from our field permit providor, the City of Mississauga.
- consideration of declaring the league as "adult" (e.g., the provision for any adult of 18 years of age to play in this league). Currently the constitution and bylaws declare this league as "adult male" whereas the bulk of (local) growth - whether touch or flag - has been at the high school level for young women (... so maybe this league could also offer such persons a place to play once they gain the right age).
- improved marketing programs for gaining the next player, referee, captain and executive member.
If you have any interest in such or would like to become a member of the MTFL 2019 executive, please contact a member of the current executive (via the legaue's email address) no later than 31-Jan-2019.
MTFL 2018 Vice-President, FINANCE officer.
HAPPY GREY CUP WEEKEND EVERYONE
It is play-off championship game time .... yippie!!!
May the best team win ... and let's hope for another fantastic GREY CUP game/result.
Have a great weekend of football everyone,
Your MTFL 2018 Executive Team.
AGAIN, FOR THOSE INTERESTED ... IN PLAYING IN MEXICO.
FOR THOSE INTERESTED ... FOOTBALL IN MEXICO.
MIFA (another football league) has been working on International programs for the past three years. MIFA has traveled once a year to Mexico for the Mexican International Bowl. Each year it has grown with an additional team. This coming May 2019, with the International Bowl in Cancun, it is adding a new facet of football to its tour.
MIFA is reaching out to local leagues and programs with the intention of creating a team for the upcoming games. MIFA hopes that players from MTFL can help create a team that would prarticipate in the 2019 International Tour (touch football).
Participating players will benefit from but also be expected to pay for an all-inclusive 7-day vacation at a cost of $1500-1600. In addition, each player must also commit to raise $200 through a fundraiser. Players not able to stay the duration of the full day 7 day all-inclusive vacation will be able to be booked for a shorter package; however, will still have to raise $200 in fundraising for the Tour.
If you have interest in participating in this venture with MIFA and representing Canada internationally, please contact MIFA no later than Friday July 6th as they want to release a promo as soon as possible. Below is a link to show you what MIFA does in Mississauga annually.
