Just a few reminders with regards to the league…
Check the City of Guelph web-site (Sports Field Status)with regard to the fields availability on a daily basis. If it looks like rain and you question if the diamonds are open or not, the City of Guelph makes that determination by 2:00 pm every weekday. If the fields are open, then you MUST show up for your game. The judgement call is then left up to the umpire as to the playability of the diamonds. This is SOLELY the umpires decision, but you MUST have a team present and ready to play if the fields are open. If I receive information from the UIC that the fields are unplayable by decision of the umpires, I will send a blanket e-mail out to the league stating this information, as I did last night. This will save teams from having to show up to the diamonds.
Please remember that our league and all affiliates, are bound by the City of Guelph’s R-Zone Policy (http://guelph.ca/wp-content/uploads/Rzone_policy.pdf)
Remember that there is no alcohol allowed in the parking lot or at the diamonds. This is patrolled by the OPP and appropriate action will be taken by them. Also, if your team is caught drinking by the City of Guelph employees, they will inform the league and action will be taken against the offending players and/or teams. Please refer to the R-Zone Policy, Page 2, Purpose, 2(l).
