Friendly vs Cayman Island Cancelled

I’m sad to report that the friendly tomorrow against the group coming in from Cayman Islands has been cancelled.

Over the last 48 hours we were informed they had a lot of drop-off in numbers due to last minute emergencies and injuries. We tried to see what we could do to salvage the match, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Maybe next time!

In the meantime, don’t forget about our great fundraiser coming up on July 15th at Books & Brews.

Everyone have a fun and safe 4th of July weekend!

Fireside Chat Postponed

Please note that the originally scheduled Fireside Chat for tomorrow will be postponed due to conflicts that arose over the last week (aka: my nephew is now having a birthday party on Saturday, and my parents are coming into town).
It will be rescheduled asap, and will be at Bier Brewery.

As June welcomed the hurlers of Indy with the first hot day of the season, 9 Irish Brothers looked to continue their solid, steady climb up the table. Facing a team that came in at 5-1 and sitting in second place in what surely is THE premier pub league in the good ol’ US of A, the Checkers were not to be denied. Racing out to a 10-point lead at half time, 9 Irish looked to win back-to-back games for the first time this campaign. The first half was a display of suffocating and dominating defense and possession. A half accentuated by tic-tac-toe highlights of lift, pass, point was marred only by a moonball goal by the company of limited liability’s Louie Landman. Brian Chernish was so absorbed gazing into the heavens the orb plopped behind the lad’s head and into the goal, no doubt with tongue out in sliotar mockery. Despite exhortations from the captains that this was a dangerous team, Dugan & Voland began to start lighting it up late in the second half as the Green & Blacks started to lose steam. However, train kept rolling on offense enough and stellar play in goal by Chernish held the D & V in check. A key pre-game change had Chris “The Other” Hazel assigned to Jeremy Fagan. An ever-increasingly frustrated Fagan was limited to a mere goal for the Limes, though he did ring the post on one shot. Gold number 14 was still finding lumps and scrapes of which he was not aware, even into the next day. “It’s just a flesh wound, I’ve had worse!” 9 Irish has now won three of their last five with tight losses in the other two to get to within one game of .500 and move into a virtual tie for fourth in the league standings. The Checkers have put up 70 points in their last two and have averaged 33 in their three victories as the squad continues to gel. Expect more noise from the burgeoning force. 9 Irish Abú!

Our Club’s biggest event of the year is this coming Saturday, June 17th…and we need everyone’s help!

Here’s how your help will make this event a success:

1. Coolers – we need to borrow coolers for the incoming teams. Please email louis@indygaa.com to let us know to expect your cooler. Bring it Friday night for setup (at the latest, Saturday before 8 AM).

2. Friday & Saturday Volunteers – each hurling pub league team is tasked with a specific job – this is to make your lives easier, by focusing your volunteer efforts on one aspect! If you have any questions about your chores, ask your hurling team captains.

3. Friday Field Setup Day – Friday from 3 PM to 7 PM is field setup day. Please come help paint, arrange, and otherwise get ready for this big event.

Once Saturday comes, any effort you’ve put in will be rewarded 10-fold, when you seen the scores of visitors in Indy enjoying our fields and our sports on some of the nicest grass you’ll ever play on. We are built on volunteerism, and this day is when we get to show that off to the world!
