Finances update

It seems our roster is somewhat set now. So, based on this roster of 12.5, the per player share of $986 is $78.88, which means your captain is pocketing $1.12 off of those that paid $80. I am unrepentent. The balance has now been paid.

Fees outstanding: Kory, Seunghee, Julie.

UPDATED Roster Update: New player

Welcome to Julie, a B level player and latest addition to our roster, who will hopefully be coming out to the April 24th practice (and did, and was great!). Seung Hee is still in the midst of deciding. Update: Seunghee has decided we don't actually bite and is in!

Confirmed (men): James, Rod, David, Nicholas, Kory, Chad
Confirmed (women): Jen, Jo, Wendy, Ivy, Julie, Seunghee

Subs: JP, Kevin, Mara

Requirements: 1 woman; 1 man

Payment rec'd: David, Nicholas, Rod, Mara ($40) Jen, Chad, Ivy, Jo, Wendy

Waivered: James, Jo, Ivy, Rod, Mara, Nicholas, David, Seunghee, Julie, Chad

Flickr + Squids

Our host, WordPress.com has added a widget for photos from Flickr. I have customized it so all photos tagged with "squidwranglers" will show up. If you have team photos, consider getting a Flickr account and uploading them. You only get 100 photos for the free version, but heh….free is free.

Practice – April 17

Sorry for the lateness of this post. There will be another practice this coming Monday, April 17th @ Douglas Park. Same time (6pm). Assume there will be a practice every subsequent Monday until the season starts.

Caveat: It's a holiday weekend. If enough people respond in the comments below that they won't be able to make it, so be it. As well, if there is heavy rain, don't bother.

Squid Wranglers and Google

At last night's practice, I made the claim that this blog was #1 in Google for the search term "Squid Wrangler". I was wrong, wrong in a way that might, if you were reflexively anti-James, be characterized as lying, but which I think would be more accurate to describe as selectively leaking without declassifying those parts which might cast doubt on the aforementioned claim. It's all the rage these days I'm told.

This is all to introduce this story about Squid Wranglers, which I discovered when actually searching Google to see if my claim was truthy.

Roster Update 3

Mara must bow out as a full-time player, due to a previous (and forgotten) commitment to a <cough> volleyball team. Let this be a lesson to all about the dangers of drink, memory and enthusiasm. We say hello to Chad. It was decided last night at practice that in addition to the return of The Madness, we would add one more man.

Confirmed (men): James, Rod, David, Nicholas, Kory, Chad
Confirmed (women): Jen, Jo, Wendy, Ivy

Subs: JP, Kevin, Mara

Requirements: 1 woman; 1 man

Payment rec'd: David, Nicholas, Rod, Mara ($40) Jen, Chad, Ivy, Jo.
