Message from new CMFA President

CMFA Members, Families & Friends;

First off, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the membership for voting me as President for the upcoming year.  I look forward to working with the current executive to keep CMFA growing and developing moving forward, as one of the biggest Fastball associations in the Lower Mainland.

On behalf of the Executive Members and the Association, I would like to pass on a huge thank you to Chad Olafson and his family.  Chad stepped down this year as President for a much deserved rest, and to pursue other interests.  Chad and his family have been very much involved with Cloverdale Softball for over 13 years, serving in many capacities, from Coaching to the President’s position which he held for the last couple of years.

Chad, his wife Jacquie and the rest of his family have devoted countless hours both on and off the field to make sure that CMFA continued to develop as an Association and to ensure that those most important to our success…the kids, were given opportunities as well as a place to play.

Once again Chad, I thank you. You have left some pretty big shoes to fill, but I look forward to the challenge of continuing to grow Cloverdale Minor Fastpitch Asscoaiation.

Stan Zelmer
President
Cloverdale Minor Fastpitch Association

CMFA participating in Cloverdale Santa Parade again

Hello CMSA Families!

Hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner!

Once again CMSA will be participating in the Cloverdale Santa Parade of Lights on Sunday, December 4th. We would like to invite all CMFA players interested in participating in the Parade to join us. As in previous years, we will have 2 decorated wagons that we tow through the Parade promoting the sport of Fastball and of our course our Association.

We ask that you arrive at the Coverall by 3:45pm to get loaded on the wagons. Please dress for the weather conditions, and if you have something festive to wear on your head, bring it along, the more festive we look the better! We will be moving to the marshalling area at 4:00pm, the parade starts at 5:00pm, and then back to the Coverall for hot dogs and hot chocolate (we usually arrive back around 6:15ish.).

We ask that everyone bring a donation (food related) for the Food Bank.  Every bit counts, especially during this time of year.

This is a fun event for players, and a great opportunity for them to support and promote the sport of Fastball and CMFA!!

If you’re interested in participating, please contact Sue Dawkins (CMFA registar) at sdawkins@shaw.ca asap, so we can make sure we have enough food for all participants.
