As there is a mad rush for the Saturday game, what time of the day I put up the schedule thread has gained undue importance:
The issue is not so much internet access. Let me re-phrase: starting registration at 9pm or 10pm on Sunday or Monday is likely to find more people FREE at that time.
Find a time whereby MORE people are likely to be free. Chances are higher that this is in the evenings than during office hours. It could be 9pm on Sunday or Monday. It could be also be during lunch-time (1pm on Monday).
My proposal to change the format for a week or two to allow more players to play and let players get used to playing up to 7 pm is still pending.
In the meantime, I will try to address the timing issue. As we currently do not have a Friday game, no schedule thread goes up on the Sunday morning.
For the game on 4 May 2013, I will try bringing the schedule thread forward to this Sunday (28 Aprill 2013), sometime between 7.30 and 8.30 am. Fewer, if any players will be at work that early on a Sunday morning. If you're still asleep, try to wake up early.
Also, with the extra game at The Grandstand on the Labour Day holiday (1 May), I won't bother scheduling the extra 6 to 7 pm game for 4 May 2013.
|Time:||5 to 6 pm|
|Venue:||Premier Pitch @ The Grandstand (formerly Turf City)|
|Numbers:||Maximum 16, minimum 14|
