2017 Chapter and Sportsmanship Awards

Our chapter is asking our members to once again take five minutes from their busy lives to vote for referee and coach sportsmanship awards. The award recipients will be honored by our chapter at our dinner on Monday night, November 13. We ask that you download, complete the ballot and send your responses to Randy Vogt. If you cannot complete all seven categories, try and do so by including games from the past few years and not just 2017, and if needed, matches on all levels. Thank you!
