Note to Flag Parents - September 16, 2010

Rain Today
We are getting quite a bit of rain today in Sparta.  However, the rain should end before the games start (weather for Sparta Michigan).  If the games are cancelled,  we will make that decision by 5pm today.  We will call the coaches to notify their players and we will change the voice message on our league hotline at (616) 606-0793.  We will play in sprinkles (light rain), but not in severe weather.

Right now, we are planning on the flag football games being played today.

Website pictures
If you took some pictures at your players game, please feel free to send them to me at and I will put them on the site.  I uploaded a few pictures from my son's game on Tuesday.  I would love to add more.
Team 3 from the 4-5 year old division put up some pictures on thier website here.  

Spiritwear Fundraiser
Today is the last day to turn in your order form for SYFL t-shirts and sweatshirts.  You can view the order form here or download it here.  If you are ordering spiritwear, please give your coach the completed form and a check payable to "SYFL".

For the 4-5 year old division
Two camp chairs were left behind at Lamoreaux Park.  A greenish one with a sweatshirt and a blue one packed away in a bag.  I'll bring them back to the field tonight at field "A".

For the 6-7 year old division
Today is picture day for your teams.  Here is the schedule:
    5:30pm -->  61-Walker
    5:40pm -->  65-Carney    5:50pm -->  63-Whitmore
    6:00pm -->  64-Haslam
    6:20pm -->  62-Post
    6:30pm -->  66-Anderson
Once your team is assembled and all present, please to to the photographer and get your pictures taken.  You can also go up to the photographer earlier for your individual pictures if you wish.

If you didn't get a picture order form, I scanned one on the website.  You can view the form here.  Just pick which photo package you want to order, write a check payable to "Studio 630" for the amount, and bring it to the field.  The photographer will have extra order forms available you can fill out.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
