      I was there till 7:10, saw no one and left. I did see lacrosse practice going on. Seems like a good field to jold up a few pick up games. Just need to find out when fields are available.

    • Jason Y

      Yeah I got there at like 715 and the lacross practice was over. I just ran on the field til about 8. I will see what I can find about the field.

    OK - so the new place picked (not by me but by consensus) is Newtown Park (near intersection of Old Alabama Rd and Brumbelow) with a new start time of 7:00.

    I actually can't make it but who am I to stop progress? Though there are youth rec soccer practices that will overlap and it gets dark at about 8:15 (earlier as winter approaches) there are fields including a lacrosse field and the outfield areas of the baseball fields to have a good game.

    I hope my schedule changes and that I can join in eventually.

    FYI, if that doesn't work out, the closest alternative I found (trying to keep it near Johns Creek) is Webb Bridge Park (upper baseball outfield), but that is @5 miles away, which is why I hadn't suggested it earlier...

    Have fun everyone!

    GERRARD LANDING IS NO LONGER BEING USED. I wish there was a way to delete this announcement...I hate to think that folks still intermittently show up. Even though there is a spot where there are soccer lines chalked in, the grass is just too tall to play. The field makes golf course rough look like...putting greens. Literally up to your shins.

    I work at Mercer Univ. on Chamblee-Tucker near 85. We have a very large well maintained field that serves as a perfect pitch, and its always available. No bugs either.

    oh well.

    Let's have a weekday game (Tues/Wed). We need a good field. Garrad Landing is not gonna work.

    August 26, 2013

  • Jason Y

    Lets just pick a good field, all agree on it, and have a good game tonight.... Im fine with Newtown park... can we agree on that?

    August 26, 2013

  • Kimberly R.

    we should play tonight at Newtown park!

    August 26, 2013

  • Jason Y

    Will there be a game tomorrow??? Lets pick a field and do it.....

    Changing location!

    After 3 games, the consensus is Gerrard Landing sucks b/c of tall grass and bugs. Clearly there’s enough interest (>30 total) to support a good consistent game in the area, so I’m looking. So far, I’ve found Newtown Park starting at 7:00 (4 mi away at Old Alabama and Brumbelow).

    Other sites I’m checking or waiting to hear from are:

    - Meadow Rue at Holcomb Brg (1 mi south off Meadow Rue which is off Holcomb Bridge)
    - Barnwell Elementary (3 mi northeast off Barnwell Rd which is off Holcomb Bridge)
    - Hillside Elem (3 mi north; off Scott Rd which is off Holcomb Bridge)
    - East Roswell Park (3 mi north; off Fouts Road which is off Holcomb Bridge)

    If anyone has suggestions/preferences, let me know and I’ll compile all the info. The trick is getting around the youth programs that are taking up all the fields.

    I’ll send word once I find a place. Give me your email if you want to be sure of being contacted.

    Hey everyone - I realize that this group is looking for a new field, but are people still playing at Gerrard Landing at 6:30 on Mondays (specifically 8/5)?

    For those who is not sure where Garrard Landing Park, turn into John Creek Environmental Campus, make an immediate left and keep driving on the gravel road. There should be a parking toward the deadend. The field is on the right side. See you there.
