WEEK #4 WEDNESDAY MAY 23, 2018 PLUS SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT FOR THE WINTER

Tonight is Week #4 Wednesday May 23, 2018 Kinsmen Arena

Team Dirka  vs.  Team Lia     8:00pm  –  9:00pm.

Team Blair  vs.  Team Jacquie     9:00pm  – 10:00pm

Something to think about for next Fall-Winter. The City of London is planning a trial program to provide a dry pad (no ice) at Silverwoods Arena for the Fall Winter 2018-2019 season. Given the availability of 1.0hr – 1.5hrs of lacrosse floor time every week, how likely would you be to show up on a (semi) regular basis for winter pickup Masters lacrosse (October – March). Our gut feel is that there are likely 15-20 players that would want to play on a weekly basis ….. so 10-14 showing up on any random week. Weekly pay as you pay would be WAY too much work to administer so the thought would be to make the winter floor time a perk/part of the summer HL feature set. Silverwoods is not the best arena for lacrosse but that is all that the CoL is offering us for now. We’re thinking that if we don’t take advantage this year we may never get a chance again. Give it some thought and talk to me or Russ tonight or drop us an email at admin at londonmasterslacrosse.com.

See you at Kinsmen tonight.

Week #1 is done and recorded. Pretty good turnouts for all of the teams. Still a few players that have said they are playing but haven’t got around to signing up….sigh…. kids!

In the 1st game, Team Dirka  pulled out a 9-6 victory over Team Lia. In the 2nd game Team Blair got ahead early but let Team Jacquie back in the game requiring a last minute goal to tie the game at 9-9.

Next is Week #2 Wednesday May 9, 2018 Kinsmen Arena

2018 SEASON ALMOST HERE! WEEK #1 WEDNESDAY MAY 2, 2018

Apparently last week’s turnout was marginal – probably something to do with the Leafs’ final (futile) swing at the 2018 Stanley Cup – well, now that they are done, its time for the real Canadian game of summer.

Week #1 of the 2018 season is Wednesday May 2, 2018 Kinsmen Arena.

Team Dirka  vs.  Team Lia     8:00pm – 9:00pm.

Team Blair  vs.  Team Jacquie     9:00pm – 10:00pm.

Preliminary rosters are posted. Remember that there will likely be some minor changes to provide competitive balance as more of the stragglers finally get around to registering and paying.

In any case – On with the show! See you on Wednesday evening for the start of another fun season of London Masters Lacrosse House League.

LAX2018 2nd FLOOR TIME – WEDNESDAY APRIL 25, 2018 KINSMEN ARENA

Pretty good turnout for the first floor time of 2018 – looked like almost 14-15 per side for a short time before exhaustion and questionable conditioning dropped numbers down to 7-8 per side for the 2nd half of the evening. Some new faces …so…generally a good evening of lacrosse.

On to week #2.

Wednesday April 25, 2018  8:00pm – 10:00pm
Kinsmen Arena
20 Granville St
London  ON N6H 2B1
We have the floor 8:00-10:00. 2nd week is again pickup only – no refs so you can run as long as you want (or are able). No point in trying to predict turnout – come for 8:00ish and figure out how to get enough running time in to meet your lax needs for this week.
For those who haven’t figured out that they really do need to sign up to play, try to register and send payment before showing up tomorrow -there  probably won’t be a tablet or laptop available so you will have to figure out how to use your phone to register. For those who have registered but not paid yet (you know who you are!) – see the instructions on how to use eTfr to forward the money!  🙂
