2021 Election Results

Peter ATKINSON has agreed to serve as VP Operations,
Dan STANKOVIC has agreed to perform the role of Secretary.
Since there were no other names submitted, both are acclaimed.

This completes the League Executive and there will be no election held this year.

2021 Elections

Every year at this time, the League holds elections for the Executive Committee that is responsible for all league activities. We aren’t playing this season, but we expect to be next season. That’s why we need a few people to step forward to join the Executive Committee and help guide the League as we organize for next season. Please consider getting involved, either as a candidate or by persuading another capable individual.

Absence from Ottawa is not a barrier to holding one of the positions as meetings are held virtually. You can be located anywhere and still participate. If we can’t find people willing to join the Executive Committee the league will be at risk.

This year two of our five Executive positions are up for renewal, VP Operations, and Secretary.  You can find the job descriptions HERE

In a normal year we would conduct the vote by secret ballot at the diamonds but since we are not playing this year we’ll use electronic means for our election.

July 19 to August 9: Nominations
August 14-20: Elections online by Doodle poll.

Following the close of nominations the candidates will be announced and instructions provided on how to participate in the vote.

Nominations (or questions) can be submitted by sending an email to elections.ottawa60plusslopitch@gmail.com

When submitting nominations please include the names of two nominators and the contact information for the nominee.

Gerry Lelievre has kindly volunteered to look after the elections account and the nomination process again this year. To ensure confidentiality only Gerry has access to the elections account. 

Stay safe

2021 Season Cancelled

In the interests of player health and safety, and after consultation with the league membership, the league executive took the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 season.

The COVID situation, while improved, remains a concern with not all of our players having received their 2 vaccination doses and the emergence of additional variants.

We look forward to welcoming everyone for the 2022 season by which time things will be back to “normal”, whatever that will mean from now on.

Steve Kelly Retires

A Big thank you to Steve Kelly, for his time and dedication as President. Any time you are a leader you come across many challenges and Steve handled them very well with grace and dignity.

Judi Haines Retires

A Big thank you to Judi Haines for bringing the social aspect to the league. Judi did a great job of making everyone feel sociable by organizing many events over the years. Your little gifts will be missed!
