Weather Watch For Saturday May 11th Games

YOU PROBABLY NOTICED THAT THIS EMAIL DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY FUNNY CARTOONS.
LOSING THIS MANY GAMES IN A SEASON IS SO DISAPPOPINTING…NOTHING CUTE OR FUNNY ABOUT IT.
LIKE MANY OF YOU SATURDAY GAME DAYS ARE MY HAPPY PLACE.

LAST FRIDAY AT 12 NOON THE FORECAST FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY WAS 70% RAIN AND THUNDER STORMS OR WORSE FROM 10:00 AM TILL SUNSET.
IT SEAMED PRUDENT TO CANCEL THE GAMES SO WE COULD REACH OUT AND INFORM ALL THE PLAYERS, PARENTS AND VOLUNTEERS AND AVOID LAST MINUTE CONFUSION.
THEN SATURDAY THE WEATHER SYSTEM SPLIT IN HALF AND PART WENT NORTH AND PART WENT SOUTH.

THE WEATHER THIS SATURDAY LOOKS TO BE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.
WE WILL MONITOR THE WEATHER AND MAKE A PLAY OR NO PLAY DECISION LATER IN THE AFTERNOON, HOPING FOR A MORE ACCURATE RESULT.

WE WILL FIND A WAY TO MAKE UP FOR THE MISSED GAMES. 
THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON THE LAST HALF OF MAY…SO NO MORE SOFTBALL TILL FALL AND WE WILL ADD A GAME DAY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
