Treasurer report and assignor’s report was given by Gary Manley.  He asked that referees please check the posted ref assignments so that games are not missed, noting that sometimes changes will be made as late as Friday before Sat. games due to unexpected circumstances. 

Bill Lindeman gave special recognition to several youth referees for their continued improvements on the field.  They were Matt Sanchez, Nataly Herrera, and Sam Horst. 

He also gave a special recognition plaque to Monty Wellborn for his 30 plus years of service to the LCSRA .  Monty has retired from officiating and will certainly be missed.
