Hi all, we're planning to add back Mother's Day games as we have enough support from the refs this season.
In the previous season, Mother's Day and Victoria Day was taken off back-to-back. That's a very long 21 day (3 week) stretch of no games for players. This stretch also extends the season into mid-June, and it seems players lose focus or miss games as beach weather, camping, parties, biking, hiking, etc start up.
In the past, we ran summer seasons starting on Mother's Day and always had a very good turnout. A few players did miss out due to dinner, etc, but most others worked around the scheduled games.
This small change will close the gap between weeks off, and shorten the season dipping too far into summer. Please let your captain know if this causes any challenges so they can get an understanding of all affected (or those that really like this addition!).
