Metro – Seattle has hired a new district AD, Eric McCurdy, who will begin
work in early November.
Emerald City – The league will be hosting a “league retreat” this week.
SeaTac – There are many new athletic directors in the league. The scope of
experience is not strong at the moment, but the desire to work hard and do a good
job is outstanding. There are two viable leagues with good numbers now.
MS – No report.
D. Official’s Corner – Joe Thompson. Joe went to the Kingco Soccer discussion
and met with some soccer officials to get an official to come to their coaches’
meeting and a coach/AD to come to the official’s meeting to discuss the new
soccer guidelines. We all want to make sure that ejections are reported in a
timely fashion. Should an AD believe there is an ejection that wasn’t reported,
please contact Joe so he can follow through on it.

audit report in writing for the board to digest. Marilyn walked the board through
the report, its findings, and it recommendations. Marilyn provided a copy for
WIAA and secured Pat’s signature on the Tax Return. Jim did a complete audit,
checking every single transaction to verify transactions.
G. State Tournament Allocations. Allocations are now on the district website at
www.seaking2.com. Please check that site for allocations and for tournament
brackets and bulletins.
Gill brought up the agreement between District 1 and 2 about our “sharing”
agreement with them. In all team sports, D1#3 will play D2#3 for the 5th and
final spot to the WIAA brackets. M/S/P. In Cross Country, there was an
understanding that we would each send 8 teams to the Bi-District CC meet at
South Whidbey. Kingco is reconsidering this and believes that we should not be
sending that many teams, but that it may be too late this year to revisit this. We
are still in the process of discussion the Track relationship. Kingco recommends
that we run 16 when the meet is held in District 1, but only 12 when it is run in
our district to be consistent with our district policy of doubling allocations and
moving to the next “reasonably” sized tournament. We will discuss this when
the agreement is finalized.
H. Site Selection for Football/Soccer. The Board asked Tom to send a copy of the
I. WIAA Insurance (L & I/Catastrophic). The WIAA is currently paying for the
insurance – for which we are grateful!!!
J. Move the April board meeting to Thursday, April 14 because of the conflict
on Monday with the WSSAAA Conference.
K. Marilyn will try to work the board meal into the meeting for next time to see
how that works.
