Hard to believe, but our summer season is slowly winding down, with only a couple of weeks of regular play left. Playoffs begin the week of August 14. Just a reminder that league policy requires players to have four games under their belt to play for a team in playoffs (though note exceptions can be made in case of injury or pregnancy).
For Wednesday’s shorter season, we may have to make some exceptions, but be sure to consult with captains and League Coordinator Tara MacLeod in case of any uncertainties.
No extreme heat advisories this week, woohoo! Games are on their regular schedule this week.
It’s still pretty hot out though, so players make sure you are hydrated, and get off the field if you need to. Captains might want to make pre-game agreements (e.g., regular water breaks; commit to using all timeouts; play to ‘quarters’ instead of half, etc.). Do what you feel you need to do to stay safe and have a great game.
Wednesday saw the close of round one this week. Captains will redraft the teams and start a whole new run for glory next week.
Congratulations to Great White Buffalo: The Moby Dick of the Great Plains for taking the first half of the Wednesday trophy. Will captain Kate be able to complete the puzzle? We shall see!
Congrats too to Big Red for winning the Carbon Flip!
