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!
Interested in all this fun people are having? There might just be time to get in on the second half of the season: contact firstname.lastname@example.org to throw your name in the ring!
Environment Canada has a Heat Warning in effect though the rest of the week. That means we’re putting some safety measures into effect.
This week, games will start at 7:15 and will be played to a point cap of 13 (win by two, no higher than 15). Captains might want to talk about taking extra water breaks as well or commit to using all timeouts.
Anyone feeling the effects of the heat should not play, and should not be encouraged to play. Get them off the field, get them to shade, and get them some water.
