Picture ID Card Deferral -- Not Required This FIrst Weekend ONLY

Due to people learning the new Blue Sombrero functionality, and mostly because the Area Card-Making software isn't working, I have decided that we will NOT REQUIRE PICTURE ID CARDS THIS WEEKEND ONLY.   If a team has them, they are welcome to bring them, but there is no ramification for not doing so.

Please inform your coaches and referees of this situation.  Coaches will be required to show their registration forms in lieu of ID cards.  Referees will report sendoffs, and coaches will be responsible for ensuring suspensions are served in the next following game(s) by clearly lining out the player's name on the game card and marking "Suspended."    Including possibly SUNDAY!! Failure to do so will increase the player suspension and result in a coach suspension.

Please do ask that your coaches handwrite ALL their players' names and numbers on the game card in numerical order!!  Present or not. I realize the Blue Sombrero functionality does not create the pre-printed cards in jersey order, so we simply can't use that functionality at all.  Handwriting only!!  The Referees really need that to simplify their job.
As included in our R&Rs, coach badges are never required in the first weekend, so the Referees need to be aware of that, as well.
Again, please distribute this to your 16/19U Coach and Referee populations.
Despite all the system/administrative burdens we have encountered, congratulations and thanks to all of you for getting our kids on the field this weekend!!!!
