Hi folks. Hope to see as many that can make it out this weekend for the Saturday morning games. NO GAMES Sunday or next Wednesday, so please make a note of that.
It might be H-O-T tomorrow, some come prepared. You ALL KNOW THE DRILL by now. Water, foot protection, Sun block, Bug spray, a Towel, ICE and MORE WATER. . . . . . etc.
Please note there is also a “chance” of rainy periods, so ALSO come prepared for that. Note that the park ( and “I” ) will stop play, and kick us out of the courts, should there ever be the threat or occurrence of Lightening. Keep a watch, and hope that we’ll only have good weather for the day and that it’ll only be rainy, etc., during tomorrow evening after we’re gone for the day.
Our group treasurer, Mr. Mike Kelly, did the count for the end of June. For the month of June, we were able to raise an additional $170.00 for the Contribution Jug. Not too shabby.
Thank you to ALL that have, and continue to, pitch in and help out. I hope that everyone else will do so also and that by end of the 2017 season we can raise a decent amount for some additional supplies that I’d like to get, AND, for the donation to St. Judes for this year. Again, I appreciate ALL that have given what you can. Thank You ! ! ! !
I can’t believe it, BUT, we’re just about at the Mid-Point of the season. I think that this year has been overall really good, good games, good folks, and good weather ( for the most part ). I can only add to what you already know, please play by the rules that we’ve laid down for everyone, play nice in the sand-box, and have FUN! That’s the point. No one gets hurt, No one wins a car! Again, by now, you all know this.
Over the past few weeks there has been a few new recruits to join our ranks, I hope to see these folks down when they can make it, as well as, the other “new” people that have been told about us from others in our group. To them I say HELLO and WELCOME, and to the rest, when you see a new person out there, do your best to help bring them up to speed as far as how we play, the rules, and KINDLY help them along ( if they aren’t already better than the rest of us ) to improve their games
so we can hopefully ensure well played and more fun gaming. That’s also the point of what we do!
So, nothing more to be said. Hope to see ya’s tomorrow. I’ll again do my best to drag my lazy ass to the park on time in the early morning to ensure we get the court, and get the setup DONE so when you all finally show YOUR lazy asses up, we just PLAY!!!! 🙂
Do your best to be there ON-TIME and PREPARED.
Last note, for a future item that I’m now trying to work out and setup, is a VBaller & Friends Hangout. Keep in mind if you’ll be available, and or can schedule the date; July 29th, 2017 – Saturday evening. Evening Boat Cruise around the South Shore of Long Island. Setting out of Captree.
Right now, I’m still in the planning stage, BUT, looking to do a nice evening out with fellow VBaller’s and friends. Figure 8:00pm to 11 / 12 midnight ( I’d prefer a 4 hour to the 3 hour BUT,….. ).
This is hopefully a Dinner, Dancing, “Adult Beverage” night out. I’m not sure what exact captain and ship it’ll be, I’m looking into that, as well as, the cost. All I do know from my initial checking is that Captree is a hell of a lot CHEAPER than Freeport.
As things develop in the next week ( as I hope to have this squared away by next weekend ) I’ll post all the details, and I will need all and everyone to jump on things ASAP. I am pretty sure we’ll have to put at least a deposit down to lock in the booking, and for the number that we can drum up. Again, I’m working on this and will hopefully have all info for you folks by no later than end of next weekend.
OK…..that’s it for now. Hope to see ya’ll then and there!
