The jury is out. We all prefer playing without the rain/sleet/snow! Today was probably the first Sunday in over a month where we had comfortable temperatures and no precipitation.
Norbuck park provided a great alternative field once again. Apparently it was so good we had two different games playing on the park in two different locations without either games knowing about the other! About 20 people showed up across the field from the police station where we ran three teams and a couple of banger drills. The day started out with the lawn chairs being set up and the sloping field being marked out. I jumped into referring and we played a fairly tight game, albeit a little slower. Coach John came out onto the field and ran us all through bangers again to help us speed up. The game gets a lot tougher when we run with speed, communicate, and keep those bangers flying. E was quick to take advantage of defense being off side although it only happened a few times. Overall we had a lot of fun, a good run, and a good catch up.
Around the corner by the softball fields, the second game was going on. Not much to report on that game other than they probably don’t read the emails which means they probably won’t see this!
While we are talking about the fields, we are hoping to be back at lake highlands ASAP, so hopefully next week. Please check our Facebook page, meetup, or emails for more information.
After the game we went to the Lakehouse for some food, some beverages, and some overdue social time.
Who wants to start playing mid week games? We are hoping to start back up before the summer touch competition. If we can get enough people to commit (12 would be great) then we will run at Lake Highlands at 630pm on Wednesdays. We are going to assume the fields are too wet this week, so let’s aim for our first mid week game on Wednesday 25th March. Please let me know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you can make it!
Have a great week!
