When is the final decision made by the selection committee? Windsor made it's bid on April 14th - so safe to assume all teams were around then. Even assume Spits were the last to make their presentation - if the selection committee took a week to decide the Spits series would have been at 3-2 Kitchener on April 22nd.

I'd assume their decision would be made closer to the unveiling date, so in this case would have been made closer to May3rd, so the likelihood would be that their decision would be made after Windsor came back to beat Kitchener in seven games.
I'm pretty sure all teams present on the same day, and we'll go with your date of April 14th. I'd assume they make the decision sometime before the morning of the announcement...I'm thinking within a week of the presentations. Regardless, at the very least the Spitfires hat not yet won their second straight Mem Cup at the time of the decision.
