In these uncertain times it is understandable to be concerned about the spread of COVID-19. The health, safety and well-being of our FLYFCL league members is our top priority. We will cancel the March FLYFCL Presidents Meeting that was scheduled for next week. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed as to the status of the April meeting. As it stands now, the April FLYFCL Presidents meeting is still scheduled. We will still accept rule changes up until next Wednesday, March 25, 2020. Please email them to Rob Meehan. We will distribute them so clubs may review them. We will vote on them all during the April meeting.

I encourage you as Presidents to do what is best for your clubs. First, I suggest you move your meetings to virtual. Zoom is offering a free subscription during this time. If you do meet in person, please keep the appropriate social distancing, wash your hands, and sanitize the hard surfaces before and after the meeting. I have included a link to resources regarding COVID-19. I do hope that you find them useful,

If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact us. We will continue to support you all to the best of our ability.
