Chairman's Notes - October 2022

Oct 16, 2022 ·   Chairman's Notes

Managers, all of us in FHC are heartbroken over the results of the Hurricane.  Whether you are a Player, Manager, Coach, Umpire, Board Member or family member, every single person has been, or still is being affected by this terrible storm and water surge.  I know in my house, we are praying daily for all of those that are still dealing with the aftermath.  We are still on for our 60+ and 50s tournament in Polk County, and will be glad to get back and see our softball friends and families.  God bless you all. Remember ...


 

 

Chairman's Notes - August 2022 - Part 2

Aug 29, 2022 ·   Chairman's Notes

For some time now, we have been using our current points system.  As you know, a team gets points for winning games and brackets.  Also, if a team misses a monthly tournament, they will retain approximately the same ranking as before. You Managers voted on this last fall.  Rankings may be affected by teams below you winning a bracket and moving up, but also because of the Ranking Committee's observations.  We will readdress this policy this fall. I was asked last month about what kinds of things the Board spends money ...


 

 

Chairman's Notes - August 2022 - Part 1

Aug 29, 2022 ·   Chairman's Notes

Managers, there seems to be some question on how the FHC Board of Directors handles the tournament money that comes in and goes out each tournament weekend, especially when we have a shortened game situation.  Managers, all you or your Players have to do is just ask us, and we can give you a tournament rundown anytime you want.  We do not keep secrets.  Also, we are audited yearly.   An average tournament for us now is 70 teams, so that would be 70 x $250, which is $17,500.   In our scenario, we get in all ...


 

 

Chairman's Notes - July 2022

Jul 27, 2022 ·   Chairman's Notes

Managers, I have several things for you tonight.  Can you believe it is almost August?  Before we get down to business, let me share something great and awesome! On July 29 1972, I made the best decision possible of my entire life.  I married a sweet and beautiful 19 year old young woman named Sherry, and my whole life changed for the better.  On Friday we will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.  Like me, she became a teacher.  With her intellect and people skills, she could have been anything she wanted ...


 

 

Chairman's Notes - June 2022

Jun 29, 2022 ·   Chairman's Notes

Managers, can you believe that it is almost July?  We have 6 months to go in 2022.  Could you imagine saying that back in the year 2000?  Not me either.  I have a few things for you:   It is absolutely imperative that all of you Managers do a good job of communicating with your Players and Team followers.  I will address that momentarily.  In the last tournament we had bad weather on Saturday afternoon and lost a few games so we decided to go to 'shortened games' to get Sunday's schedule in and hopefull ...


 

 

Chairman's Notes - May 2022

May 18, 2022 ·   Chairman's Notes

Managers, when you receive emails or messages from anyone on the FHC Board of Directors, please share those thoughts with your Players and Coaches.  Quite often something new is announced but some Players say to us that they 'never heard a word' from their Manager.  Help them out and yourself by being knowledgeable about what is going on with FHC.   About a month ago I was alerted that we had lost one of our venues for the 50's State Tournament for the December 10/11 weekend.  We polled our 50's teams and they would r ...
