Managers, a few of you may not think so, but the Board always has your best interest in mind when we make hard decisions. The Board has decided to do something different than the $50 credit for those teams that did not get to play their games on Sunday at the Cape Coral fields. First of all, I took for granted that teams understood what happens if a tournament is not completed. That is my fault. $25 of the $250 fee goes to help pay for Umpire and Commissioner Hotels and field fees. That leaves $225 for the tournament itself. The teams at the Cape complex played half of their games but you do not get half of your fee back. We must pay the bills first then we determine how much each team gets back. Normally, with team Hosts, each team receives between $26 and $28 per game back. We thought it was be a good gesture to offer a $50 credit, to make it easier for you to remember when writing your check, rather than $52 or so dollars. However, we realized that the FHC Board had to Host this one and so we are not tied to the common place action. We still have to pay the bills but we believe that a fair amount to be paid to each team is $90. We are mailing those checks out by tomorrow instead of giving the credit for the nest tournament.
