Ok, I'm not really endorsing Subway here; that song is just stuck in my head!!!! But much like the ultra nummy sam'iches, we're hitting five.
That's right, this Saturday will be our fifth Central Iowa Lacrosse Association Toss Around! As always, we'll meet up at SouthWoods at NOON. Last week was a definite success with 16 people, most of them not on the Valley team, coming out to play Ultimate Lacrosse. Despite it being Easter weekend, I am hoping that we will see more of the same this Saturday! We may get both goals out to play full or half field light shooting game. Maybe we'll just get out one and play one team shooting on offense and one team scoring clears on defense; we did something like this during the third Toss Around and it was quite fun. Maybe we'll just play Ultimate again.
I've been impressed with all of the newcomers. Each seems to pick up passing and catching quicker than the last. At the rate we are going, it is possible that some version of the Des Moines Demons may arise this summer (click here for the full scoop on the team), even if it is only to play scrimmages against current GPLL teams. At any rate, it is beginning to look more and more like we will have a men's league (including high school players) this summer. Depending on numbers and the kind of commitments people are willing to make, we will either assign teams or just have a show up and play type of league. That will be decided as the time draws nearer.
I am open for your thoughts and opinions on that or any other matter anytime. As always, contact me with questions, concerns, or just to let me know you may need to borrow a stick at the Toss Around. I will do my best to arrange extra sticks, but I can't promise anything right now. In the meantime, Scheels had a selection of Warrior Outlaws and Punishers as of last Friday for around $35 each. Swing by and check them out. If you do not plan to attend this week, then you will have plenty of time to order one online before out next Toss Around.
This will be our last Toss Around before the end of Valley's season. Remind all of your friends and family that Valley has two home games on May 2 and one on May 9. I hope to see you there!
