The 2018 rule changes were reviewed.  Congratulations were offered to the District, State and World Series champions, runner-ups and sportsmanship. Wayne County Debs were runners-up in the 2017 World Series!   It was brought to the attention of the group that Franchise Application/Renewal form is available on the Dixie Softball National website (softball.dixie.org).
