WINTER MASTERS LAX 2018 – 5TH FLOOR TIME DEC 5, 2018


 2 weeks ago, the 4th night of 2018 Winter Lacrosse  – 9 runners and 1 goalie – lots of running, still, apparently a good time. Sounds like the threat of bad weather and snowy roads kept some people home and on the couch…sigh….like %$#$# soccer players  🙂

(2nd ST West of Highbury on Trafalgar

We have no idea what the turnout will be – could be 10 or it could be 40 – should be 2 goalies though! – the plan is for pickup lacrosse, no set teams, no refs, no charge! Show up at 8:00pm and we’ll see what makes the most sense for tonight and going forward. Bring any extra pinnies if you have them in case some non-summer players show up. Next floor time after tonight is in 2 weeks Wednesday November 7, 2018.   See you on the floor.

WINTER MASTERS LAX IN LONDON

Sooooo ……floor time is booked, insurance is arranged and we have found competent(?), responsible(?) people to reliably show up and keep things under control – Winter Lax London Year #1 is a go!

Initial plan is to go Wednesday nights, biweekly 8:00-10:00 at Silverwoods.  Unstructured pickup only (for now), hopefully 2 goalies will be present for all weeks scheduled.

The Wednesday nights are as follows:

October 10, 2018 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm.

October 24, 2018 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm.

November 7, 2018 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm.

November 21, 2018 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm.

December 5, 2018 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm.

December 19, 2018 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm.

Depending on turnout and interest we will review 2019 times at the end of November. We may stay with biweekly for January and possibly move to weekly dates in February and March. There is no charge for the floor time – your summer fees cover the winter floor time. The first couple of weeks will determine how we go forward – depending on the turnout numbers and behavior of the people involved we will decided if any further rules or guidelines will be put in place. Rob Ashmore has kindly booked the floor time in his name and Rob and Matt Austin, Justin Phelps and Dylan English have offered to be the voices of reason attending the floor times trying to keep everyone on the straight and narrow.

More information as times get closer.

WINTER LAX IN LONDON – THE MESSY PREREQUISITES

We have winter floor time available this fall and winter Wednesdays 8:00-10:00 at Silverwoods. As a trial we are thinking of making it available for winter pickup lacrosse at no additional charge to LMHLL summer players (and interested others) – too hard to try to collect money on a session by session basis.

General thought is to do every 2nd week – October to December and then, if the interest is there, go to weekly for Jan or Feb – April.

No fixed teams, no refs , just pickup or if numbers don’t work out for any particular week, just throwing the ball around and working on sticks. Goalie participation – it would be good to have 2 goalies max each for each session but will need someone to coordinate (I won’t be doing the coordination duties).

Big kicker is that for insurance purposes through the city, for “pickup” activities, we really need competent, consistent representation at each session – someone has to be there representing the renter to make sure that the floor, arena, space is more or less safe for the intended activity and to provide general oversight to make sure nothing particularly stupid is going on. Soooooo….we need a couple or more guys that think they will be attending on a regular basis to step up and be the ….”competent representatives” . Without “representatives” we will likely cancel the pre-Christmas times and only try to keep the 2019 times leading up to next years HL season.

Think it over and get back to me as soon as possible with your thoughts and suggestions. FWIW this may be our only chance to get a shot at winter floor time going forward – if we don’t take advantage of what the City has made available we may never get a chance for winter lax floor time in the future.
