**************************************************

League and Gaming Circuit Applications Deadline: April 1st, 2008
An annual event that is absolutely critical to your league's operation.
A reminder to all Cal South leagues, clubs and gaming circuits that your annual League or Gaming Circuit Applications are due in to the Cal South Corporate Office no later than April 1, 2008. How important is it that you complete this process? Without it, your league could face the possibility of being denied access to vital Cal South resources such as CORIS, cards, Field Liability Insurance and much, much more.

In addition to the league applications, Cal South has added a new application for competitive gaming circuits. The 2008 Gaming Circuit Application is intended for "inter-league" gaming only, as opposed to "intra-league" play. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the League Account Management Department at 714.451.1513, or feel free to click here for immediate access to the applications.

Tournament Applications Due April 30th!
Avoid Late Fees and Problems By Getting Yours In ASAP!

Cal South Tournament Applications are due in the Corporate Office by April 30th. Now is the time to get your League's tournament application in, so it leaves everyone plenty of time to correct any errors that may pop up. The Board of Directors will review all applications at the May and June Board Meetings. For more information on the process, click here or contact Brandy Buell at bbuell@calsouth.com.
