IF THERE IS NO HOST LISTED, PLEASE CONSIDER CONTACTING ME TO GET SET UP AS A HOST SO THAT THINGS CAN BE COORDINATED FOR OUR PLAYERS!!! :-)
This game is now combined with, & organized by, another offline group that usually brings at least 10 players so there should be a game unless the field is closed (e.g. for weather, winter) or most people are likely to be out of town (usually holiday weekends). The host can connect with one of the organizers of the other group to notify our members when the other group will not be playing. The host (or anyone else, if no message is posted yet) should check the automated status message at the Berkeley Parks & Rec Field Condition Hotline [masked] Ext. 1) to find out if the field is officially closed and post it here for the group if it is.
BAD WEATHER PROCEDURE:
If there is lightning ~1 hour before game time then the game should be canceled for safety reasons.
When it rains before the game, if there is not an equal amount of sunshine to dry the field (i.e. 1 hour of rain then 1 hour of sunshine, 3 hours of rain then 3 hours of sunshine, etc.) then the game should be canceled so the field doesn't get damaged.
BACKUP LOCATION: TBD
P.S. Bring a white and dark-colored shirt if possible to make it easier to split up into teams.
