Issue Papers

Issue papers are intended to explore areas that are still somewhat controversial among Bay Area Leagues and murky in regional decision making processes. The perspectives are NOT an attempt to portray a League consensus or to state League positions. Posting on the League Website with the opportunity for continuing discussion may open new paths in the difficult terrain of regional decision making.
