Hitting Our Stride

While Week 1 was a washout, Week 2 brought the sunshine for an awesome week of games. Congratulations to Who's That Daddy & The Plastics, who are tied for the league lead after last week's games.

Standings Update

After discussion, the Board has decided that the Week 1 rainout games will not count towards the overall standings, but will be used as tiebreakers at the end of the regular season if necessary. Only half the teams got to play during the Week 1 rainout, and those teams that did pl only managed to finish one half of one game. This decision was made after evaluating the playoff seeding complications that would arise from having teams play a different number of games. While there were no perfect solutions, we believe this approach is the best way to move forward. The standings on our website will be updated in the next few days.
