We hope everyone's Ramadan is going well. Here are a few more updates and news to share for the upcoming season.
1. BSL Ramadan Campaign will be launching later this week. We encourage everyone and their families to donate their zakat locally through our campaign this year. Collectively, we can make a monumental difference in our community. Stay tuned for our upcoming video and campaign website.
2. BSL has launched our podcast series. Download Podbean to listen and comment on the podcasts. We have also added a widget on our website. Our first two GM podcasts have been released. The remaining two will be released each Thursday. We will be looking for guest hosts throughout the season so let us know if you are interested in contributing.
3. August Schedule:
Super Sunday was a success last season and we have extended that to two weeks this year with the additional week added this season.
Here is the schedule for August:
August 4th - Mid-season tournament
August 11th - NO GAMES (Eid-ul-Adha)
August 18th & 25th - Super Sundays
Seed #1, #4, #5, #8
Seed #2, #3, #6, #7
Each team will play their division over two Sundays as the final regular season games.
4. 2018 BSL Committees
The committees for this season were selected based on responses in the registration survey. If you still like to volunteer, please contact us and we will find you a committee to join. We could use your skills. We are looking for additional help with graphic design if anyone has experience.
