LONDON MASTERS 2018 – 2nd REGISTRATION EVENT WEDNESDAY APRIL 11, 2018 ALIBI ROADHOUSE

Not too bad of a turnout for the 1st registration – about 10 signups with 4-5 new players ready to hit the floor. We have our eTransfer deposit system set up so only really, really old school guys like TomC have to continue using paper cheques.

With only a week and a half to go before first floor time we probably should have another face-to-face registratioon event for those that crave human contact. So…. next registration for London 2018 Masters House League will be held

Wednesday April 11, 2018 7:00pm-10:00pm

Alibi Roadhouse
25 Oxford St W
London  ON     N6H 1R2

Bring your cash to pay for your beverage to refresh yourself while extolling your lacrosse exploits from years past.

Try to preregister online (and send e-payment) so you don’t have to try filling out forms on a tablet or smartphone in a crowded, dimly lit establishment.

See some of you on Wednesday.

LONDON MASTERS 2018 – SOON!

LONDON MASTERS 2018 – 1ST REGISTRATION EVENT WED MARCH 21, 2018 ALIBI ROADHOUSE

And AGAIN, after a long dark winter ….we’re back! …More deja vu from 2016 and 2017 at the same points in time…there seems to be a pattern here – (registration is 1 day earlier, notification post 3 days earlier – I am getting SOOO much more efficient…) Changes from last year highlighted in red.

First registration for London 2018 Masters House League and Travel Teams will be held

Wednesday March 21, 2018 7:00pm-10:00pm

Alibi Roadhouse
25 Oxford St W
London  ON     N6H 1R2

Bring your cheque book (and try to preregister online and ePay before you come). We have eTransfer payment capability – you can send your registration fees to payment_at_londonmasterslacrosse.com.

House League (20 weeks) – $175

4, maybe 6 teams (numbers permitting), 1 hr games on Wednesdays 8:00-10:00 (maybe 11:00) at Kinsmen – starting April 18, 2018 floor conditions permitting.

Tournament Travel Team – $200

3.0 Tournaments + Provincials

Fergus – June 1– June 3, 2018 (4 games)
Brantford – July 20 – July 22, 2018 (4 games)

Provincials (ROCK Ctr Oakville) – September 7 – September 9, 2018(4 games)

As was the case last year, EVERYONE (HL) has to register again online and on hard copy (TRAVEL)  for insurance coverage. We will have some tablets at the registration to process the online forms….BUT you can  make things easier by pre-registering at the OML website ontariomasterslacrosse.com – I will be sending out a quick email to all known addresses from last year with login details or you can email me at gglinavs_at_ sprynet.com to get the username and password (same as last year and the year before if you remember – digital security best practices – what’s the fun in THAT!). Make sure you register for London Masters House League.  After filling in your information, you have to scroll to the bottom of the page to check off the “I have read and understood this stuff” box before submitting. User interface seems to be improved a bit – every little bit helps. Ignore the roster listings (still set to Summer 2017 – hopefully these will be updated shortly). When you get your emailed insurance/registration confirmation please forward it on to us at payment_at_londonmasterslacrosse.com. Looks like you can now fully register and pay without leaving the house and coming for a cold beverage and some (re)telling of lacrosse stories (lies) but what would be the fun in that.

Hope to see a bunch of you on Wednesday. Further registration events will be posted as needed.

WEREWOLVES OFF TO THE 2017 PROVINCIALS

4th tournament of the 2017 season – past data points 1-3, 3-1, 1-3 seem to indicate a good weekend coming up. The tournament results put the Werewolves in the 7th seed of 10 teams and provide a better than historical seeding schedule. With a full bench of runners that, on paper are the strongest London has fielded in recent memory things are looking somewhat positive for the weekend – well, at least better than showing up with only 8 or less guys for the entire weekend.

Games are as follows at the TRAC Centre in Oakville

Friday Sept 8, 2017     9:00pm TURF  vs. Niagara
Saturday Sept 9, 2017 9:00am CONC  vs. Toronto Beaches
Saturday Sept 9, 2017 3:00pm CONC  vs. Whitby/Durham

Sunday game(s) depend on Fri/Sat results.

With the strong and numerous lineup Werewolves even held a practice/strategy session last night …and surprisingly no beer was involved. Hopefully the results will be better than 2 years ago, the last time Werewolves held a practice! Anyway, tonight and tomorrow will show if this is to be a Year of the (Were)wolf.

GO WEREWOLVES OF LONDON…..AROOOOOOOOOOOOH!

SUMMER2017 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME – TEAM BLAIR RETURNS TO THE PODIUM

With the Championship game ready to start, there appeared to be be some last minutes fluctuation in the betting lines – Team Jacquie appeared to be short some key players – the point spread was shifting from the early line – would Team Jacquie have enough scoring to overcome Team Blair’s explosive offense? Any scoring would be better than 2016! …

SUMMER2017 FINALS WEDNESDAY AUGUST 30, 2017

Tomorrow night, for all the marbles! All of the I stuff – set aside! Injuries – what injuries? Time for the real thing! First up, Team Dirka and Team Lia for the Bronze Medal (actually the EveryWinnerHasToGetSomethingChampionOfTheLosersRound Bronze Award (Girl’s Lax Bobblehead version) or alternately the (Stained) SilverBedpanToiletBowlLoser trophy) – hitting the floor for the undercard at 8:00pm. Some rumour that there might be collusion to make last second major trades and player movements (ie. throw sticks in the middle and play for fun!) – the Commissioner’s office will have to investigate this – can’t mess with the integrity of the game!  😆 Once their game is over and the ToiletBowl is scrubbed clean – THE SHINING MOMENT for LMHLL2017, the pinnacle of Masters lacrosse in London, the ultimate….whatever …Team Jacquie vs Team Blair at 9:00pm. Remember to head on over to the Alibi for a few cold brews and snacks after the games and to receive your appropriate prize/trophy/award printout.

The FINALS, Wednesday August 30, 2017 Kinsmen Arena

Team Dirka (Gord)  vs. Team Lia (Justin)     8:00pm – 9:00pm.

Team Jacquie (Justin)  vs.  Team Blair (Gord)     9:00pm – 10:00pm.

See you there.

Should be interesting – which of the teams can get the most consistent turnout of their top scorers and who can focus enough on defense to shut down their opponents scoring prowess? Come out to Kinsmen tomorrow night to see what happens.
