WEEK #1 RESULTS

A bit of a slow start – a last minute goalie cancellation, some frantic texting and both early teams showing up (barely) at the last minute…. a typical summer evening for LMHLL! In the 1st game, both benches had mid season numbers (3-4 spares) but early season scoring capabilities. Scoring was notably absent, the 1st period ending with Team Dirka leading 1-0 (must have been the goalies!). The 2nd and 3rd periods were a bit more exciting with Team Lia tieing it up late in the 3rd and then scoring a buzzer beater goal to win the 1st game of the summer 8-7. In the late game, Team Sharley was short benched with only 4 runners but Team Jacquie was not much better off with only 6 runners. With a couple of recruits from the early game both teams were able to continue with the end result – a win for Team Sharley 9-6.  Week #1 is in the record books.

Next is Week #2 Wednesday May 15, 2019 Nichols Arena

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

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

There were some complaints that I hadn’t sent out an email reminder for last week’s game …sigh… too bad there wasn’t a “thing” where one could post information and schedules and rosters and updates so that anyone could access this information on an as required basis without having to worry about whether they are on the contact list or if their email client relegates lacrosse emails to the SPAM folder or….. Maybe somebody will invent some kind of “web” of information thing that would allow this sort of functionality…someday. I will send out one more mass email to remind registered players of Wednesday’s game but most future updates will be web only. If you don’t get an email reminder today or tomorrow please contact me at admin at londonmasterslacrosse.com so we can figure out any issues. Also, a reminder to those who have yet to pay – you know who you are! – please send an etfr of $175 to payment at londonmasterslacrosse.com. Thanks.

See you on the floor Wednesday.

WEEK #1 SUMMER2019 HL WEDNESDAY MAY 8, 2019 NICHOLS ARENA

Apparently last week’s turnout was pretty good for the last night of pickup lacrosse – wouldn’t have been enough for 4 teams – 2 games so we made the right call to defer the season start for 1 additional week. A few more registrations came in and once the provisional teams were done, all the procrastinators started to email – “I FORGOT! Is there still room? Can I register? Can I play tonight?” …sigh….  Yes people can still register and play …and PAY! A non-trivial portion of those that have registered have yet to get around to submitting payment….  you know who you are! Please forward $175 via eTfr to payment@londonmasterslacrosse.com. It is an automatic deposit email so you don’t have to worry about thinking (up a password or anything). Over 40 people have figured it out already – It shouldn’t be hard for YOU! – Don’t make me have to chase the deadbeats!

Anyway, Week #1 of the 2019 season is Wednesday May 8, 2019 Nichols Arena (for those not paying attention to previous posts note the change of venue!)

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

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

Preliminary rosters are posted and are changing as I add the procrastinators one by one. For now if you have just re-registered and I haven’t updated the rosters, assume you will be on the same team as last year. 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! 16 new players including 2 additional ladies! The quest for the 2019 CrystralBallofUsedTape award for LMHLL supremacy in 2019 starts tonight. See you on Wednesday evening for the start of another fun season of London Masters Lacrosse House League.

SUMMER HL2019 WEDNESDAY MAY 1, 2019 NICHOLS ARENA

Tonight, Wednesday – Third floor time of Summer2019 HL.

Session #3 – Pickup with refs, informal.

Wednesday May 1, 2019  8:00pm  –  10:00pm
Nichols Arena
799 Homeview Rd
London  ON N6C 5J4

RobA and DylanE will try to organize some sort of temporary teams for tonight depending on who shows up. Refs will be out to keep things organized and maybe work on showing everyone the new faceoff rules. Others, and you still know who you are (!), please take the time to register at home, on the way or at the arena. Don’t forget to send ePayment to payment at londonmasterslacrosse.com.

Due to the slow registration so far, it looks like we will be doing informal teams for the this week. +/-50 players so far -> 3 teams , we’ve done it before but it is not optimal – if you are planning on playing please register ASAP so we can work up base rosters for next week.

P.S.     As usual, I am sending this same info to the email addresses that I have on record (last year’s participants and new registrations this year – if you don’t see the email, please check your spam folder and white list the sending address or contact me to see if we can fix the communication issues.

 

HL SUMMER 2019 – 2nd FLOOR TIME WEDNESDAY APRIL 24, 2019 NICHOLS ARENA

Not too bad a turnout for the 1st session – 16-18 runners, 2 goalies! Lots of shooting, not much defense…not unlike a typical Wednesday night. Could be a new scoring threat on the horizon – Lia (“Bounce”)T scored TWICE! once on each goalie, on really nice bounce shots (of course that is the source of her new nickname…. 🙄 ). In any case, there were a few people drifting off the floor once their limits were reached but running (jogging) and shots continued till just past 9:30 so, all in all, a success for the first night.

Anyway, tomorrow, Wednesday – Second floor time of Summer2019 HL.

Session #2 – Pickup Only

Wednesday April 24, 2019  8:00pm  –  10:00pm
Nichols Arena
799 Homeview Rd
London  ON N6C 5J4

To try to keep things organized the people that have already registered (all 40 +/- so far) can show up to go on the floor at 8:00 and run as long as they want (or are able). Others, and you know who you are (!), please take the time to register at home, on the way or at the arena and plan to start subbing in around 9:00 or whenever the first group get tired (usually anytime after 8:45 is a good bet). Don’t forget to send ePayment to payment at londonmasterslacrosse.com.

Due to the slow registration so far, it looks like we will be doing pickup only for the next two weeks until we can get a good handle on who is actually going to be registering and playing this summer. 40-50 players -> 3 teams , we’ve done it before but it is not optimal – if you are planning on playing please register ASAP.

P.S.     As usual, I am sending this same info to the email addresses that I have on record (last year’s participants and new registrations this year – if you don’t see the email, please check your spam folder and white list the sending address or contact me to see if we can fix the communication issues.

 

HL SUMMER2019 – 1st FLOOR TIME WEDNESDAY APRIL 17, 2019 NICHOLS ARENA

First floor time of Summer2019 HL – new season, new location – time to get the stick worked in and the muscles unlocked. This year, for all but the last couple weeks of the season, we have been relocated to Nichols Arena.

Session #1 – Pickup Only

Wednesday April 17, 2019  8:00pm  –  10:00pm
Nichols Arena

Don’t forget to send ePayment to payment at londonmasterslacrosse.com. Should have 3 goalies available tonight so you may actually have to run instead of just playing half court!

Due to the slow registration so far, it looks like we will be doing pickup only for the first two (maybe even 3) weeks until we can get a good handle on who is actually going to be registering and playing this summer.

Hope to see most of you tonight.

LAST NIGHT OF WINTER2019 LAX – WEDNESDAY APRIL 10, 2019 SILVERWOODS ARENA

Well that was disappointing – physical registration at the Alibi last night – one (1!) person shows up for a beer and he had already registered….sigh…. As of this morning we have 26 registered – looks like we won’t be able to start games right from Day 1 because we can’t set teams because we don’t know who is planning on playing… oh well! – plan on 2 weeks of pickup at Nicholls as per usual summer startup. practice.

In any case tonight is the last night of WINTER2019 LAX at Silverwoods
