INCLEMENT WEATHER POSTPONEMENT PROCEDURE
In the event of a postponement due to inclement weather, the following procedure should be followed:
1.) Call your opponent to discuss the situation and possible postponement. This should be done well enough in advance, if possible, to prevent your opponent from having to travel to your site (usually at least 2 hours in advance.) If possible, offer your opponent two potential make-up dates when your opponent is not scheduled for a game. (BY RIALB BY-LAWS, YOU ARE ALLOWED UNTIL THE END OF THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY TO DO THIS SINCE IT MAY REQUIRE DISCUSSION WITH PARKS/RECREATION DIRECTORS.)
2.) Call Jim Foster (for Sr. Division Games) at (401) 835-2745 or Buster Perrault (for Jr. Division Games) at (401) 309-1222 to notify them of the postponement. If you have already agreed on a make-up date with your opponent, notify them of this new date as well. The appropriate Division Commissioner will notify RIUA Administration of the postponement and make-up date/time/location.
3.) If you did not do so in Step #2, please contact the appropriate Division Commissioner by the end of the next business day (Monday-Friday) following the postponement to inform him of the rescheduled date/time/location. He will then call RIUA Administration to schedule umpires. IF YOU DO NOT RESCHEDULE THE GAME BY THE END OF THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, THE GAME MAY BE RESCHEDULED BY THE APPROPRIATE DIVISION COMMISSIONER!!!
