With a heavy heart and much sadness, I want to let our Touch Football community
know that we have lost a player. Micah Baerwald has passed away tragically.
Micah has been playing the last few years with us and had a strong presence in the league.
I offer condolences to his fiancé, Shannon and his family from BMTFL and personally from myself.
We will remember Micah. Here are some BMTFL moments. May these photos give you fond memories. Thank you Mariah for sharing these.

The 2020 season has been completed. We managed to get the entire season played.
The Marauders are the 2020 Champions. Beating the Bills in a nail biter with a kick through the endzone with 3 plays to go to win 26-25.
Bills barely beat the Ballistics in the semis. The Marauders beat Gabriel Pizza to get to the Championship game

Week 7 pics start HERE
So Week 7 Playoffs are complete. Match ups for Super Saturday are set. I mentioned in yesterdays email that we didn't cross conferences until the final but I was incorrect. We will cross over for the 10am games.
Commonwealth 10am Gabriel Pizza vs Marauders. Tiss 10am Bills vs Ballistics.
The winners of these 2 games will play at 1pm at Commonwealth for the BMTFL trophy!
Donations started rolling in today for Charity. The Whistlin' Mothers collected $105 today. I will be at the games on Saturday and will continue to collect for charity. BMTFL will match all donations up to $1000. We have collected in excess of $200 so far. We will put some money to the Keystorm snowsuit fund and some to Brockville food bank.
We won't be having a banquet this year due to the Covid limitations. We have had a different shorter season, but some great games. Thanks to all the players for the excellent season.
And thank you to all the players for your assistance keeping us in the Ontario rules structure for outdoor play.
Hope to see many of you next Saturday. Check your email before the weekend for any updates, or watch our facebook group page.
We have completed our regular season and tomorrow we begin our playoffs.
For some teams, tomorrow will be their last game of 2020. We have been fortunate
to be able to run a season in these difficult times.
We are still restricted to 25 people at the fields. We were hoping that restrictions
would ease but with the 25 person maximum we are unable to have any kind of banquet
or celebration. So tomorrow, Sunday October 18th we will have pizza delivered to the
fields from Gabriel Pizza after each game. 10:30 and 12:30.
For those that are able to donate money to charity, we will be collecting donations
for the next 2 weeks for local food banks. BMTFL will match the donations to a maximum
of $1000. Lets see if we can help those that need it the most.
Captains, please accept the donations from the players.
Championship Saturday will be very different from other years. Only 4 teams will play
and the opposing conferences will meet at 1pm at Commonwealth to decide the 2020 Championship.
I have had a request from BGH to ensure we park only in legal parking and not to use their
hospital parking lots. They will have lots of activity on Saturday, most of it on Pearl street.
Parking on Bartholomew will be fine as usual.
Thank you to everyone for helping to make this season run so well. We really needed this!
Cheers and good luck everyone.

2020 BMTFL Season - Proposed
These guidelines are subject to change.
- Spectators will have designated areas that they must remain in if they wish to watch games.
They will not be allowed in the team bench areas.
- Spitting is not allowed for any reason. This is NOT a judgement call for the referees. Any
spitting at the field will be penalized with an unsportsmanlike conduct (10-yards) for the first
offense, then ejection for the second offense.
- Divisions are limited to a maximum of 50 people. This includes, players, coaches, referees
- Each division will be compromised of no less than 4 teams of 11(or 12) players each.. Same
referees for each division.
-There will be NO multi-team play. Players will be limited to playing with one team in one
division. If one team is short players, the other team will match + 1 extra player.
- Subs if required, must come from within the same division. You cannot use a player(s) from
- Teams will still have to supply volunteer referees before or after game as per usual.
- All team captains will also be required to assist the league with several team related tasks.
So be prepared for a little more work prior to & during the season. Communication with team
must be maintained weekly.
-2 divisons of 4 teams = 88+ players. Commonwealth division, TISS division. Calbrock
division if enough interest for 44 more players? Play each team in your division twice for 6
games. Players and refs play all games at that field. Only 2 games will be played at each field
per day starting at 9 am and 10:30
Sept 06, 13, 20, 27, Oct. 4, 11, Oct. 18 is semis – 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 in each division. Sat. Oct
24 is finals for each division. No crossover just division champs. B final and A final on
championship day at each field.

August 25 2020
2020 has been a different year for sure. It looks like we can run the 2020 BMTFL season with limited teams.
Starting Aug26th, we will open registration to those that have emailed with an interest to play in 2020.
We will limit the league to 8 teams. It will be a shortened season, likely with the banquet held on Super Saturday at the football field.
We will have the 2020 rules posted on the website tomorrow and they may change or possibly the season could get cancelled anytime due to Covid restrictions. Waiver agreed and payment of $60 must be received to be drafted.
The league will start early this year and begin on September 6th. We will have 6 weeks of regular season with playoffs and championship to follow.
Registration will only be open for 1 week or until 8 teams are filled.
We reserve the right to reject Non-Brockville players from playing.
We have a great league with many dedicated players. Lets play safe.
