ON DECK BILLBOARD


ABOUT OUR BEAR CLAW!
Native Americans use symbols & designs to represent specific ideas or cultural expressions. The bear is a powerful guardian; physical strength & leadership! The bear symbolizes sweetness of life and introspection. The bear claw was used to summon the power of the animal. The bear tracks can signify strength and well being, leadership and authority.

MAJOR REMINDERS FOR THIS WEEK!
Q. Why do we post updates constantly? A. Because we have people that don't comply with deadlines and it kills our plans.

#1 = TOY DRIVE!
Thank you for everyone that helped us donate to Comers Children's Hospital, especially the Rodrigues family sho donated nearly 450 gifts! A special thank you to players Zach Rodrigues, Ethan Godlewski, Leo Schaffer and Scott Sokachitch for making the excursion.

#2 = SCHEDULING!
We award extra practice sessions on a need basis, and sometimes due to other team cancellations or instructor changes, it forces Coach Korbs to make a last minute decision.
These are BONUS sessions during November and December, treated very differently than January to March.
If you do not understand, ask. If you do not attend meetings, then do not complain and simply ask!
We are a well-oiled machine but if you have misunderstoods you need to simply ask Korbs.
He's the most accessible person in travel baseball and has been in the clubhouse
15+ hours per week. Mobile is 708-209-9399. Happy to help!

#3 FEES AND DOCS!
All fee balances are due by 12/22/19 and some of you haven't even followed the agreement requirement. We have teams that have not turned in complete basket donations at $15 per player, or the $99 flat fund-raising fee. These are needed THIS WEEK! Please bring your fees current, you should have cancelled checks to know your total. If not, see Korbs. We cannot enter early bird tournaments for your team until this is handled. Thank you.

#4 CHECKS!
You should always ONLY write a check to Prospects Travel Baseball or Lincoln-Way Prospects. You should only mail a check to Coach Korbel but it should be dropped off at the clubhouse. You cannot issue checks to personal names, mail to non-LWP addresses or write to Xposure. It is as stated above, in the agreement and reviewed at the parent meeting!
TEAMS NEED TO MEET DUE DATES FOR ALL PLAYERS TO PREVENT SCHEDULING DELAYS!
It is unacceptable to have some teams without 100% agreement submission, basket donations, fund-raising flat fees paid and membership fees up-to-date. LWP delivers what we said, and we expect the same in return to keep operating smoothly.

PAST DUE MEMO! Things were due on Tuesday, November 26th at the clubhouse in Mokena! If you failed to do this, please drop off on Thursday, December 5th or Saturday, December 7th.
