NW Umpires College Updates 12-24-2018

The NW College Committee and the Board of Directors wish you a safe and happy holiday season.  Included below are a few updates.  As always, please contact me if you have any questions.

·       I have included the most recent update from the CBUA.  A few of our members did not receive the update last time.  If you are not receiving updates from the CBUA please be sure to contact them ASAP to work through the issue.

o   Regarding hats, please wear your black NW hat for all games assigned through NW Umpires.  There are NSIC hats floating around that can be worn, if all in the crew, have them and you are working D2.  For games that are assigned through the CBUA please make sure you adhere to the standard described in the update.

·       The national meeting that our group will be attending is in Chicago (Sat Jan 19th).  If you plan on attending and have not registered yet, please do soon.  If you already know your travel plans (air, car, train, etc.), please shoot me a quick note and let me know when you plan on arriving.  We’ll probably grab pizza on Friday night – all are welcomed.

·       No Bank Ball (aka Dome Ball) this year due to NCAA basketball in US Bank stadium, so we’ll be at the mercy of our unpredictable spring weather.  If you are interested in preparing for the season in warm weather, Tucson, please contact Adam Berg.  The first games will be on March 1st and the final games on March 26th.

·       I will be attending the MIAC coaches meeting on Jan 17th.  I will have MIAC specific updates after that meeting.

·       NW Meetings – I expect all from this group to attend.  If you are unable to attend, please let me know via email.

    • General Membership Meeting - Save time around Sunday Feb 10th to attend.  More details to follow as we get closer to the date.
    • College Clinic will be held on Sat Feb 16th .  We will be back at Augsburg, like several prior years.   More details to follow as we get closer to the date.
  • Finally, over the weekend, the Oakes family house burned down.  This family has deep roots in the MN baseball community and especially at the college level.  Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.  A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to assist the family: https://www.gofundme.com/oakes-family-fire-fund
