Glen introduced Bob “Butch” Loncar from the newly formed District 6 and Jim Connelly husband and ADA of Anita Connelly the new DA of District 4.

  1. Glen reported on the State Coordinator election conducted by Eastern Region Headquarters.  He expressed disappointment both on his part and Eastern Region Headquarters that 9 DAs failed to vote.


  1. Glen appointed a committee consisting of Barb Holovka, Mike Serino and Scott Leinbach to draft a change to the by-laws updating the election process of the State Coordinator.  The areas of concern are changing the election process from being conducted by Eastern Region Headquarters to conducting it ourselves and to correct the discrepancy that under current by-laws an honorary member is not permitted a vote at state meetings but is eligible to be elected State Coordinator.

Pennsylvania is again this year being given the opportunity to send two teams to the East Region Big League Softball Tournament.  Motion was made by District 14 to bring all teams to the state tournament to be hosted by Towanda Little League, District 15 and split them into two pools, east and west geographically, and the winners of each pool will advance to the East Region Tournament.  Second by District 3.  Motion passed.


  1. Pool play.  Glen emphasized that the championship game must be played for any pool play tournaments.


  1. Also concerning tournament it was emphasized that tournament team envelopes are not to be sealed but are to be checked by the tournament director at each level of tournament play above districts.
