General Membership Meeting & Election of 2013-2014 Board of Directors



When - Wednesday, September 18th at 7:00pm

Where - Vernon Teen Center, 375 Hartford Tpke, Vernon 

VYBO is seeking candidates for its Board of Directors for the 2013-2014 season. Candidates should submit their names to league secretary Kim Aliczi at kaliczi@gmail.com or 860-558-6478 by September 17th.

All parents of VYBO Babe Ruth and FBVL Travel Team players, as well as managers and coaches, are invited to attend to participate in our post-season wrap up which starts at 7:00pm. Elections for the Board of Directors will be held at 7:30. Parents/Guardians of players, managers, coaches, umpires, board members, and other volunteers from this season are eligible to vote at the general membership meeting.

The following board positions are open for election: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Baseball Operations Director, Player Agent, Purchasing Agent, Manager Liaison, Information Officer, Director of Travel Baseball.

The new board will begin its duties October 1st, so there is a lot of time to learn what the various board positions entail before the spring season starts. All of the current board members will help new board members get started well with their various responsibilities.

VYBO is a volunteer-based organization, and the League looks to every parent to help out in some way. For more information, contact league president Joe Pane at 860-997-0536 or jpane@sbcglobal.net.

Open Letter to Parents

Parents and Friends of all VYBO players: 

Vernon Youth Baseball Organization is in need of volunteers. We currently have open Board positions including  Vice President, Director of Baseball Operations / Field Coordinator and Umpire-in-chief. With these vacancies many current Board members are doing double duty. Some are also coaching and managing teams, which means those members are doing three or more jobs. We need your help to keep the league functioning. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help VYBO run more smoothly, please email jpane@sbcglobal.net. 

Sincerely,

Joe Pane

IMPORTANT UPDATE!

We completed 2013 Babe Ruth evaluations this week. We have enough players for 3 Babe Ruth teams for the 2013 season. However, as of April 15, we only have enough Managers and Coaches for one team. Without volunteers, we may have to cancel this season. We are dangerously close to that now. 

If you are able to help manage or coach a team, please contact our Manager Liaison Scott Andrews at shome92@msn.com or 860-402-9549. Or you can or call Joe Pane at 860-997-0536. We would like to select teams this week and begin practicing. Again though, without your help we can't move forward. Please feel free to share this message with anyone you know that may be interested in helping. The kids are counting on you.

Important Update; 2013 Babe Ruth Rosters and Coaching Openings!

We completed 2013 Babe Ruth evaluations this week. We have enough players for 3 Babe Ruth teams for the 2013 season. However, as of April 12, we only have enough Managers and Coaches for one team.

Without volunteers, we cannot move forward with team selections. I'm not sure why this happens but the Little Leagues in town have waiting lists for coaches and managers, while we struggle every year to find willing volunteers for our Babe Ruth League.

If you are able to help manage or coach a team, please contact our Manager Liaison Scott Andrews at shome92@msn.com or 860-402-9549. Or you can reply to me via email or call me at 860-997-0536. We would like to select teams this weekend and begin practicing next week. Again though, without your help we can't move forward.

Please feel free to share this message with anyone you know that may be interested in helping. The kids are counting on you.
