"Fireside" Chat on Saturday, International Rules Football Viewing, and More!
It’s a flash Fireside Chat!
This Saturday I will be at Bier Brewery from 12:30pm to 2pm. Any and all topics are open for conversation. Come by and bitch & moan to me about how terrible I am, share that awesome idea that you’ve been thinking about, ask a zillion questions about next year’s Pub Leagues, or just share a beer with me and we can talk about Star Wars (seriously, it’s a month away, I will talk about it for the entire hour and a half if you want to).
But wait, it’s an entire Bier Brewery weekend! Because Sunday at noon, there will be a viewing of the International Series Football match between Ireland and Australia. It’s the second match of the series, with Australia having won the first match. This will also not be a live viewing, since the match is being played at something like 3:45am our time. Which means if you want to be surprised of who wins, don’t Google the match details before you go.
There may be some of our friends from the local Aussie Rules Football club there, as well, so you can tell them how anything and everything that is good about International Rules comes from Gaelic Football (I don’t even know what I’m talking about, but you should still say it).
Additionally, we will be issuing a call for nominations for player awards in the near future. Start thinking about who you’d like to nominate, and keep your eyes peeled for the official announcement.
Make a quick note that we will be having our Winter Pub Crawl on December 9th. Details will follow soon!
Finally, in a bit of quick news from the USGAA national conference: While the individual player registration measure failed to pass (which would’ve added the most amount of financial burden to our club), the individual player injury insurance requirement did pass.
We will be sifting through what exactly this means in terms of who is expected to carry it, how it will be carried out, and how much it will cost (currently, the USGAA itself doesn’t know how much it will cost). At a minimum, the cost to send teams to Nationals will go up.
Please feel free to ask questions, offer input, or better yet, attend a board meeting to stay up to speed with what this will mean for our club. The next board meeting is December 12th @ 7:30pm.
