Make Up Games
There are quite a few make up games still to be scheduled. These should be rescheduled by Tuesday.
Just a reminder, please reach our to your commissioner for any day-to-day questions you may have and they will get back to you as soon as possible. There are Group Chats set up by division so be sure you have access to that. If you don't let me know.
There were quite a few questions about field closures yesterday. Just to be clear, I am not the person repsonsible for deeming a field ready for play. This is done by the city as these are city fields and it is a very convoluted process. There are times where I can get a second opinion but it is very difficult to do on a Satuday morning and not likely to change their decision which is why the cancellation were sent out. Basically, I would have to call the city, hope they answer at 7:30 am on a Saturday they then contact their subcontractor who then contacts their subcontractor who would contact the supervisor on duty. We would then have to wait for them to come out a look at the field. Not something likely done quickly. Additionally, the city will no longer pull water off of fields so if there are puddles on the field, they will not work on them but rather wait for them to dry to maintain the integrity of the field (their words, not mine).
I understand your frustration. Right or wrong, the city is going to err on the side of player safety.
Any other issues, please let me know.
Thanks and have a great week.
