Still Playing at McCarthy Middle School

Oops, I forgot to post the outcome of our discussion of moving the location of our pickup game.  For at least this week, we will continue playing at McCarthy Middle School.  Pop Warner Football will be kicking us off that field in a few weeks and by then we should know where CYSA would prefer us to play on a “real” grass field.

So, again, 9AM today at McCarthy (see directions on the menu item above).  Bring a dark and a white shirt and have a great run!

Great Summer of Soccer

The last few weeks have seen some great pickup soccer games.  We have been playing full field at McCarthy Middle School with full teams.  Let’s keep it up this weekend with another spirited game on Sunday at 9AM at McCarthy.  Remember to bring a white shirt and a colored shirt so we can even out the teams.   And plenty of water.  It is hotter on the artificial turf field than the grass we are used to.  It should be a good day to play!

July 4th weekend game

What better way to celebrate our nations independence than playing pickup soccer!  It looks like the weather should be good (unlike the last two weeks).  Apparently we had a few die-hards last weekend that played in the rain.  Nice job.

So, remember we are playing at McCarthy Middle School at 9am.  Also, please recall that we have renewed our insurance policy for the year.  If you haven’t chipped in yet, please bring some $$ to help cover the cost ($40 for non-students; $20 for students).  Remember, this covers us until July 2016.

See you there!

Rain may let up just in time

The weather forecast shows it may stop raining from 9am to 11am on Sunday.  Just enough time to play some soccer.  So, let’s meet at McCarthy Middle School at 8:45 (a little early to check if someone else is using the field).  If it is being used, we will go up the road to IACS to play.  See the Directions menu item for addresses.  Remember to bring a white and a dark shirt.  Looking forward to a good run!

Father’s Day Washout

It is raining pretty hard with more on the way according to the weather radar.  So it may be best to call off the pickup game for today.  Please see the previous post regarding the insurance binder reminder.  And have a very happy Father’s Day!  See you next week.

Father’s Day Pickup Soccer

It appears the remnants of tropical storm that hit Texas earlier this week will be hitting us tomorrow morning.  But it is unclear how much wind and rain we will be getting.  One source says not much while another says heavy rain.  I am not encouraged about it being a good day to play.  However, I will post again at 8AM tomorrow morning to indicate if we are calling it off or not.

Remember, if we do play, it will be on the field behind McCarthy Middle School.  If it already occupied we will move to Innovation Academy Charter School in Tyngsboro.

Also, we need to purchase another year of insurance (see previous post) so if you haven’t paid Lawrence, please bring some $$ so we can continue playing.

Location Change & Insurance Binder

Due to the fact that CYSA has closed all of their fields for the summer to perform maintenance, we need to change location for the summer.  We are told that the new artificial turf field behind McCarthy Middle School is available for use – as long as some paying customer isn’t using it.    So, starting Sunday June 21, 2015 we will meet at the McCarthy Middle School turf field for our games.  However, if the field is in use, we have another option to take our game 5 minutes up the road to the Innovation Academy Charter School in Tyngsboro.  We have been given permission to play there if needed.

See the Directions menu item for the address of both the McCarthy Middle School and Innovation Academy Charter School.

For at least the first week, let’s meet 15 minutes earlier than normal in case we need to take the game up the road.

Regardless of where we play, we need an insurance binder to cover the property damage and any injury liability.  Our binder from last year runs out after our June 21 game. Therefore, we will need to collect funds to renew the policy.

We are looking for $40 from each adult and $20 from the college kids.  You can put the money in the mail or drop it at Lawrence’s house.

Lawrence’s address is:

Lawrence MacDonald
15 Reid Road
Chelmsford, MA 01824

Or you can text/call Lawrence at 978-729-6805 if you have questions.  Remember, this policy covers us from June 2015 through May 2016, all for the price of what we usually pay for 4 weeks of indoor soccer.  This is a good deal.

See you at the field on Father’s Day!
