SPECIAL NOTICE: Hey guys, we've been checking the field conditions and though there has been some melting in the last couple of days, the field is still mostly covered with hard packed ice and the turf below has been frozen down to what is basically a hard wet carpet surface. Because of this we do expect this game to be cancelled, unfortunately, barring some miraculous field healing today. Keeping it open for now and your Game Leader Ben Astin will have a final check later today.
Please understand that this situation with the extreme weather is out of our hands and we would love nothing more than to keep the game open and let everyone play, but safety comes first.

If this or any other meetup is ever canceled, we send out an email letting you know and explaining how to request a credit for another game. We're thankful every time that you guys come out and play with PS2G and the fees you pay help cover the costs of permits and above that help fund the various charities we partner with. When games are cancelled, we offer the option to either leave your payment as a donation or email us at [masked] to request a credit for a different game or discuss any other questions, suggestions or concerns you may have.
Thank you everyone for signing up regardless of adverse weather. I know this particular group is very hardcore and you all would go snowplow the whole field if it were possible to help the game.
