7 Treasurers Report Account Balance – $23, The 2011 season wound up in a surplus position again with our budget holding true other than the unplanned expense of funding the Junior nets. The final net income for the league was $5,488 on revenues of $86,600. Revenue was almost flat over last year with expenses mirroring that result. Accounts receivable was an issue with Zone 3 and Zone 6. Chasing delinquent accounts was a very time consuming endeavour. I would ask the board to consider enacting rules address this ongoing issue in the coming year. See financial statements Respectfully submitted Rick Wilson

9 President Report The 2011 season was a success; our membership was consistent with last year. Some of the highlights were: 867 Players listed on our rosters 124 coaches listed on our rosters Rosters were loaded on the RRLA website Implementation of Pointstreak system for Junior stats tracking Again completed payroll twice in the season for the officials Zone 6 trained level 1 and 2 officials New junior nets were purchased by the league for all zones Ended the year on plan financially This year we had very few missed games. Only 10 forfeits this year which is much better than in previous years. Only a few games had to be rescheduled due to officials not being available. New executive in Zone 3 and Zone 5. Tyke Jamboree was a great success, thank-you to Zone 4 for hosting it again this year, they had lots of volunteers, the weather was great, Tim Horton’s was there and all but one team showed up. Cost for this event was $325 and it is money well spent.

10 Presidents Report Some of the challenges were: Limited number of timekeepers in Zone 5 and Zone 6. Lack of referees in general Registration is a continued problem for Zone 6 with deadlines being missed and players not registered playing in the league. Registration as a whole is difficult and very time consuming. Senior program did not get off the ground this year. Zone 6 still has an outstanding amount of ~ $850 owing to the league.

11 Presidents Report Objectives for next year Clear the outstanding balances. Board action required. We must implement online registration. Poll?? Officials recruitment needs to be enhanced

19 Referee in Chief – Bruce Paton The year started off with 4 officials clinics. Three level 1-2 and one level 3-5 clinic. There was also a time keepers clinic This year saw the fewest number of officials registered. Thompson Lacrosse also held an officials clinic. With the fewer number of referees most were assigned more games and received more supervision from Terry Williams, ( see attached report ). This year I received the fewest calls about officials. Sagkeeng also had 8 officials this year and were assigned their home games at Novice and Pee Wee. A need for local officials at level 3- 5 is still an issue in this zone. Donna Combe did the assigning for the Novice and Pee Wee, and I did the assigning for Bantam, Midget, JR. Evelyn Sieben assigned the time keepers. There were issues with assignments this year as some officials could not make certain clinics and attended clinics above their level, took the clinic, were assigned games and then gave some games back or were not available due to other commitments, playing or other activities. Next year the clinic dates will be posted well in advance as always and there will be no make up dates. The clinic format will be changed dramatically next year with on line registration and a portion of the clinic will have to be completed on line before attending a clinic, this will correct officials from attending a clinic they should not be at. There were very few games this that were blown because of no officials available, but it was a challenge in certain areas to get officials. There was a huge drop off of officials from zone to zone, where some zones that had no officials. The suspensions were about the same or a little less than last year. We sent 3 officials to Nationals Stephanie Korchynski and Jesse Smith to Pee Wee, Bantam, midget. Jesse was awarded the gold medal game for Bantam, Stephanie was in the gold medal game for Pee Wee. Brent White went to Founder’s Cup and was awarded the gold medal game. So the officials we send to Nationals have done exceedingly well and say a lot for the officials we produce from Manitoba. We have an officials association, which I would like to see take over the assigning of all sanctioned games in Manitoba, and at some point appoint zone RIC when needed, with the approval of the MLRA. Game fees and travel for the upcoming year need to be discussed with the MLRA and presented to the RRLA in time for their budgeting meeting. Some zones need officials and I would recommend if they do not have officials and travel is involved the travel be billed to the zone instead of subsidized by the league. Looking forward to next year and growing the sport of Lacrosse. Bruce Paton RIC, RRLA

21 Directors At Large – Don Jacks Don Jacks Director’s Report November 20, 2011 I would first like to apologize for not being able to attend the AGM as I am currently at the CLA AGM representing the Manitoba Lacrosse Association. Thanks to everyone on the board for welcoming me to the team as this was my first year being a part of the RRLA board. One of the key projects that we took on early in the season was marketing for our zone teams. With help from Dave Gill, his son Dayne Gill, and Stewart Astleford, we were able to get team billboard advertisements up in arenas across the city to further advertise our sport. Hopefully this will catch the attention of hockey players during our off-season. I think we would all agree that one of the biggest obstacles that the association faced this season was finding the funds to cover the new CLA nets that had to be purchased. I have been able to get funding for $2000 through Sport Manitoba to help with those costs through applying for two bingos so far and I will continue to see if we can re-coop more of the approximate $9000 expense that these nets set the association back. We require 4 volunteers to work December 23rd at Club Regent Casino in order to redeem the $1000 for this bingo. Arrival time is 4:30pm. My hope for this upcoming season is that our players will have an opportunity to register online. Many sports are turning over to online registration which helps decrease time commitments for volunteers and will hopefully make things easier to manage overall. My one continued and recurring concern is regarding the collection of team fees upfront prior to commencement of the season. I know this is easier said than done but as an association we truly need one of our directors to be in charge of making sure fees are paid before teams play. Once again, this season we have seen cheques bounce and teams play without paying until playoffs. This puts a lot of non-needed stress upon us. (Something to be discussed further and enforced) I would like to thank our President Rick Wilson for a fantastic job once again as well as to all our board members for the time and commitment everyone has put in this season. Have a great off season and we’ll see you in the new year! Don Jacks
