2016 ELECTIONS: STEVE QUAID RE-ELECTED PRESIDENT

Congratulations to your slate of executive board members elected at the 2016 SSUA general membership/elections meeting on September 21, 2016, at the Eagles Lodge.

Steve Quaid was re-elected president and will serve a two-year term and Karen Nelli was elected to the one-year term as At-Large Director Position 3. Gary Kuck, who had been serving as Vice President-Adult, a position that was replaced by the 2015 by-laws changes, was elected to a two-year term as At-Large Director Position 1.

Chuck DeBruin, as Vice President, and Brian Hall, Ssecretary, will remain in those positions for a second year and serve until the positions comes up for election in 2017.

Carl Durr, who was elected in 2015 to a two-year term as Vice President-Youth, will complete his second year as At-Large Director 2. VP-Youth was eliminated by the 2015 by-laws changes.

Their terms begin December 1, 2016. 

The 2015 by-laws amendments put all the board positions in two-year terms except At-Large Position 3, for members with three years’ experience or less, which remains for one year. It also calls for the President and At-Large Director 1 to be elected in even-numbered years and Vice President, At-Large Director 2 and Secretary to be elected in odd-numbered years.

The Appeals Board: Jeff Camp, Bobby Kuck, Chuck Stewart, Dallas Williams, Daryl Williams, Dave Berghammer (alternate), John Isles (alternate).  

You can check out the SSUA by-laws on the association website at eteamz.com/ssua in the Rules, Documents & Materials section.

HEY, BLUE! THIS PARTY'S FOR YOU ...
 
2017 Bi-Annual ASA UIC Clinic in Oklahoma City February 2-5 may be called "UIC," but it's for everyone; any umpire who would like to attend. This one is especially significant for Region 15 umpires. It marks the last one for longtime Region 15 UIC "Wild Bill" Silves, who will ride quietly into the sunset of retirement when the clinic ends. And, yes, it will be a party, as only Region 15 can throw, but there's a lot of learning that goes on, too; some very significant material that will benefit veterans and rookies alike. If you've ever wondered what a UIC Clinic is like/all about, this is a great time to find out. And the first weekend of February there are no games to worry about; you won't miss a thing! Save the dates. See the flyer in "Rules, Documents & Materials" under "Training - Clinics & Schools." The host hotel, the Sheraton Midwest City, has great rates right now at $81 a night. Find someone to share the room with and it's even cheaper. And you have some time to latch onto a great air fare, too. Questions? Contact Spokane ASA UIC Ken Mathia, 951-8860 or umpassigner@aol.com.

Rain, rain go away … but if it doesn’t …

check the status of your game

on the SSUA Weather Hotline, 509-723-4511

        

        Games canceled or postponed by weather, or other unforeseen circumstances, by 12 noon will be posted to the Weather Hotline. … Umpires will be called regarding cancellations or postponements that occur after 12 noon.

       In the event of inclement weather, if your game is not on the recorded message and you haven’t been called, GO TO YOUR GAME SITE! Because weather conditions can vary within our area, rainouts ARE NOT one-size-fits-all. You may have to postpone a game when you arrive, but that is one of your responsibilities that you can’t do from home!
