Last evening the Board of Directors met again and after much debate voted to cancel the 2020 spring/summer in-house season, including TOS. This decision was not made lightly, but we simply do not see a path forward to playing during these difficult, uncertain, and unprecedented times. The health and safety of the community we all love is paramount, and this difficult decision reflects our commitment to the families of CGYBS.
Last week, we provided the community with some financial information that we hope clarified our inability to provide 100% refunds. If you haven’t had an opportunity to review this information, please click on the “More” tab above and scroll to “finances”.
Over the course of the past few days, we have been able to secure outside funding in the form of a loan that allows for a 50% refund. These refunds will be processed as quickly as possible. While we have of course provided refunds in the past for various reasons, never have we done so on this scale. We thank you in advance for your patience while this process is ongoing. Refunds are expected to be distributed by July 17, 2020.
If you would prefer to donate your refund to the league, please send an email to Treasurer@cgybs.org no later than June 5th 2020, and you will receive a donation letter that you can use for 2020 tax returns. Please understand that you’d be making a charitable donation, and these funds would not be a credit or pre-payment to Fall Ball, any camps, or the 2021 season, but rather used to help pay off the aforementioned loan and other expenses that the league will accrue over the course of the rest of 2020.
Looking ahead, we’re hopeful that we can announce a Fall Ball season later this summer. This is obviously to be determined and will be based on several factors that are outside of our control, but we want you to know that if it’s possible, we plan to play.
The past few months have been difficult for us all. The volunteers that make up the Board of Directors are your friends, neighbors, and your children’s coaches. We donate countless hours of our time for the betterment of the community we love. We are very passionate about the league and the benefits it provides to the children of Cary and Fox River Grove, and the community at large.
We are grateful to so many of you that have voiced your support for CGYBS while we’ve navigated this unchartered course, and understand the frustrations of others. Everything that we’ve tried to do has been in the best interest of our beloved community.
Thank you for your patience and support. Please take care of those you love and those in need during these difficult times. Until we see you on the ball fields…
