2021 Rams Executive Board Nominations

Hello Everyone:

 

First, I hope this email finds you all healthy and safe!

 

Secondly, although 2020 has been nothing any of us could have anticipated, not having a football and cheerleading season for the first time since 1967 has been sobering to say the least.  We, the Rams, will return in 2021 ready to work hard and continue to strive for excellence.  However, our organization is only as strong and successful as the support of its members.  It is time to nominate the individuals that will help us get there.  We are currently looking to select leaders and establish an Executive Board as well as our Board of Directors.

 

“Nominations for the Executive Board and Directors will be accepted at the regular monthly October meeting only.  It is desired that all nominees be present, however, any individual being nominated who is unable to attend the October meeting must submit, in writing to the President, their acceptance of the nomination within 48 hours.  A regular meeting will take place in November for elections of new Executive Officers and Directors for the upcoming year.  All nominated individuals should be present at the special meeting in November for elections.”

 

Please submit your nomination and desired position to:  AND by midnight, Sunday, October 25th.  Submissions received after this time will not be considered.  As stated above, it is desired all nominees be present at our board meeting to accept their nomination on Monday, October 26th at 7:00pm (Woodbury Library – we must meet outside school entrance and go in as a group and masks must be worn).  Any nominee unable to attend the meeting must submit, in writing (email or text) to the President, their acceptance of the nomination by midnight, Wednesday, October 28th.  All Board positions are termed for one year with exception of President and Treasurer, which are termed for two years.

 

The following Executive Board and Board of Directors positions are open for nomination:

 

President

VP of Football

VP of Cheerleading

Secretary

Football Coordinator

Cheerleading Coordinator

Director 1

Director 2

Director 3

*** The President and one Director position must be a board member prior to running for the respective position

 

Elections will take place at the November monthly board meeting, where ALL members of the association are encouraged to attend and vote.  The newly elected Executive Board and Board of Directors will take office on January 1, 2021. Also at the November meeting, nominations will be accepted for all other appointed board positions.

 

The following appointed board positions are open for nomination in November:

 

Equipment Manager

Fundraising Coordinator

Fundraising Manager (Football)

Fundraising Manager (Cheerleading)

2020 Salem Rams Football & Cheerleading Season Update
Hello Everyone!
 
I am sure many of you have been anxiously awaiting an update on the 2020 football and cheerleading season. Well, it is with mixed emotions that I regret to inform you the Salem Rams will not be participating within the NHYFSC this year.  Although some will not look favorably upon this decision, please know it was not a frivolous one. The Rams, as well as other surrounding towns, have spent many hours diligently researching and deliberated endlessly, all things COVID.
 
I appreciate the input and dialogue that has taken place among the NHYFSC over the past several months.  However, without firm guidelines to ensure a safe environment for children and spectators coupled with the uncertain impact of the COVID-19 virus throughout the upcoming months, it is absolutely in the best interest of our athletes, families and community to forgo the 2020 season. Due to the enormous time constraints we face it is imperative we make this decision today.
 
Furthermore, the Salem Rams Board did not make this decision alone. As of today, we are one of six organizations opting out. Two additional towns are announcing later this week and several more are expected to follow suit in the very near future.  Although the state has yet to definitively announce whether cheer will be competitive or sideline only, I personally have had conversations with officials of multiple towns and they are supremely confident no gymnasiums will allow for indoor cheer competitions this fall.  Cheer is not sustainable in this format.  
 
Please know we respect the opinions and decisions of all.  For those organizations that choose to field teams this year, we wish them nothing but the best and hope they all experience a safe and happy season.  However, current guidelines only address a small amount of outstanding questions and concerns of our members.  Additionally, we are not confident that the NHYFSC will be able to provide answers in a timely manner as they will be contingent upon the Governor's office.  The proximity of the football and cheer athlete make the potential consequences associated with the COVID-19 virus far outweigh the positive experience a child may experience while participating in sports this summer/fall.  As such, the Rams Board determined this is the safest and most prudent course of action.  
 
Although we will not be participating in the 2020 NHYFSC season for games and competitions, should there be one, we still want to keep our organization active.  At some point this year, in some way, shape or form, we will be honoring our 8th grade football players and cheerleaders.  Why wouldn't we?  Some of our athletes have been with our organization since the 1st grade.  Also, anyone interested in participating with another town offering football or cheer (if any), I will sign a one-year waiver.
 
Finally, this decision was not an easy one.  To say we are disappointed is grossly understating it.  I wish you all a safe and successful summer and fall.  I look forward to seeing you all on the fields and mats come 2021.  If anyone should have questions, you are welcome to call my cell phone at 603-475-5586 and I will do my best to answer them for you.
 
Sincerely,
 
Christopher Homsey
President, Salem Rams Football & Cheerleading
