The 2010 Tournament Calendar was presented for discussion.  Don Soucy and Joe Wendler, member of the Little League Advisory Board, gave background information on the decision to hold an East Region Tournament for 9 & 10 Year Old Baseball and Softball.  Motion to change the format of the 9 & 10 Year Old Baseball and Softball State Tournaments to a single site, eight team pool play tournament with the site to be the section scheduled to host the state championship was made by District 14.  Second by District 26.  Motion passed.  The Tournament Format will be amended to reflect this change.  Don Soucy gave approval to allow districts to begin the district tournaments on June 25.  Motion to approve the calendar as amended was made by District 18.  Second by District 9.  Motion passed.

Jim Burns suggested scheduling four team pool play tournament games for day two by assigning the two losers from day one to play in one game and the two winners to play the other game.  The games for the third day would assign the teams to play the team they have not yet played.  This would not violate the Little League Pool Play Guidelines as each team will still play each other team and will essentially eliminate games that are meaningless.  Don Soucy will investigate to make sure there is no problem with the Pool Play Guidelines.
