2. Motion to change the MOSA rule that if 50% or more of a game is completed and then ended pre-maturely due to weather, the result of the game shall stand as final. If less than 50% of a game is completed and ended early, then the game shall restart at the other teams home field and referee fees will still be responsibility of the original home team. [Motioned by Marlboro; Second by Union Beach] Motion passed.

3. Motion to change Club Pass rules to limit the number of Club Pass players each team can use. 7v7 teams would be limited to 3 Club Pass players; 9v9 teams would be limited to 4 Club Pass players; 11v11 teams would be limited to 5 Club Pass players. [Motioned by Marlboro; Second by TRIC] Motion passed.
