It does boil down often to the person running the league.
I try to get my deposits in MONTHLY for cliff drive, but when an Ace is hit, you have to do it that week. It is only fair to the player involved. The problem is though that if the payment hasn't been made for the league, how can you pay them? You have no accurate accounting for the ace, so you can't write a check if you don't know the amount. You also can't write the check if the money isn't in the bank.
THere are sheets that each league director is to be filling out on a weekly basis to get only the financial information so that it can be reviewed. When you wait until later on to do it, it adds up and takes much longer to do, and then becomes a chore, instead of a 2-3 minute process.
It is similar to keeping stats (though not required of league directors), even with a large group if you tackle it the next day, it is much easier than trying to input league totals from the last 3-4 weeks.....
It boils down to the club is an all volunteer organization, and some people prioritize differently than others to ensure that things are done. It doesn't mean that they are bad people, it just means that the prioritization isn't where it needs to be at certain times.
I don't know what has been done to reach out to the LD at Blue Springs, I haven't played league there this year, I barely play any leagues any more, not enough time. Infact, I am probably going to be needing someone to run Cliff League next year...I just don't have the time to give.....
