2015 REFLECTIVE HELMET REGULATION



Little League International has implemented a rule change which prohibits "mirror-like" batting helmets at all levels.  
Rule 1.16 (page 56 in your baseball rule books and page 51 in your softball rule books) now reads "Helmets must have a non-glare surface and cannot be mirror-like in nature".  
An example of helmets that are illegal for Little League use would be as shown at the following link: 
http://ep.yimg.com/ay/hq4sports/under-armour-protective-uabh100ctt-adult-chrome-two-tone-batting-helmet-3.gif 
Please help us adhere to this rule change by making sure your players are using equipment approved for use in Little League.  
Board members on duty will be assisting umpires in enforcing this rule by requiring that the helmet be removed from use during games.

LITHIA MOTORS DONATES $1000 TOWARDS STORM DAMAGE



Boone National Little League would like to thank Lithia Motors (Honda & Nissan Dealers) of Ames for their generous donation of $1000 to offset the insurance deductible cost which was greatly needed after a late winter storm damaged a significant amount of fencing and netting around the T-Shirt/Minor Baseball/Minor Softball Fields. We truly appreciate Jeff Searcy and his entire team over there at Lithia Motors and their support of the Boone National Little League and the over 700 children who participate in this league!

PARENTS / PLAYERS THINKING ABOUT PLAYING ALL STARS - PLEASE READ



Dear Parents,
It is now time for our league All-Star selection process to begin. Please read this carefully prior to filling out the All Star ballot permission form. If your child is selected to represent Boone as a Little League All-Star, then they will need to meet the rules set for the the Boone National Little League. This article outlines several responsibilities and requirements both you and your child must comply with or it could mean removal of your child from the All Star team. We do not want to see this happen to any child, but we must keep the program running smoothly.
Please read the rules.  The Player Request Form needs to be signed by you and the player then returned to your coach no later than Sat. June 6.  
1.	By Tuesday June 9, Sample Ballots for each league will be posted on the bulletin boards.  Please check these for content and spelling.  If there is a name omitted or misspelled, notify Jesse Howard (515-230-2182) before 8 pm Wed. June 10.    No Changes will be made to the ballots after this.
2.	All Star voting will be held on Saturday June 13.  On Saturday, June 13, after the ballots have been counted and the completion of games , a list of the players voted onto each all star team and the team manager will be posted on boonell.com and the bulletin boards at the concession stand.  The manager of each team will call their players ASAP.  On Sunday, June 14 at 7pm there will be a team meeting at the Boone Little League Headquarters. All players and at least one parent or guardian must attend.
EACH PARENT SHOULD BRING   
1)	A $60 registration fee will be paid.  Should this cause a financial hardship for anyone, the league would pay the fee. Under no circumstances will anyone be eliminated due to this fee
**If a child played all stars in 2014 and you provided documents in 2 and 3 below you will not need to bring them to the meeting, “if your all-star coach turned in the 2014 documents”.  If your child did not play all stars in 2014, you will need to bring the documents described in 2 and 3 below. 
2)       Three or more documents proving the all-star player’s residence inside the BNLL boundaries.  All      three documents must have the same address and be dated between February 1, 2014 and February 1, 2015 or be in force during this period (i.e. a driver license which expires on a date after February 1, 2015).  Each document must be from a different category of the 17 categories recognized by Little League International.  
3)       A copy of a state certified birth certificate if BNLL does not have one on file.  
3.

4.	This year the all star fundraiser will be with Club’s Choice.  This will be an opportunity for a family to recover some of the cost of All Star participation.  
Each player must sell 15 items or pay $60 to BNLL as a fundraiser buyout.  
For the first 15 items sold and each 10 items sold after that the player will draw for a cash prize.  
If the player sells at least 30 items, they will receive a $50 dollar refund of their registration fee.

** Pickup date for all ordered items is Monday, July 6 at Franklin from 5-7pm.  ALL ITEMS MUST BE PICKED UP AT THIS TIME!
