Board: There were three open seats for the board and three nominations, Al, Malisa and Arturo. As three individuals have applied for three open seats, the board has voted to accept these nominations as elected.

October 31st matches: We are informed that some venues will not be available for matches on Halloween. Therefore, we are asking our captains to choose an alternate date to play this match. We do need this match completed before October 31st so we can do the playoff brackets. Please talk to a board member if you need assistance with this.

Please send scoresheets to Ran at (323) 362-6269.

Till next time, keep your eye on the ball.
