Update Jan 2nd 2012
For those of you curious about the status of Middletown:
Obviously it's discouraging that we were 'dark' throughout 2012. But I will make another - final - attempt soon to get permission to resume play this Winter - 2013, before turning attention to the possibility of other new locations for central Connecticut play.
(I already have made some preliminary investigation and inquiries
though a suitable, affordable and adequate site is a challenging quest)
As I've said before, having more complete contact info from central CT
players (via e-mail response) - especially your full name and home or
work locations (town) and phone numbers to associate with your e-mail
address would be helpful, either in my discussions with Middletown, or
in seeking and deciding on an alternative - which could be anywhere
from , to Meriden to Hartford or the Waterbury area -
depending on available facilities, and who responds to me - from which
towns - with more complete contact information.
Update_ November 2010-
We have suspended play in Middletown after 17 years, as of Spring 2010. Please be advised, I am still attempting to resume play in Middletown, or at an alternate location elsewhere in Central Connecticut. Your contact information is helpful to me in restoring Middletown, or convincing another location in Central CT to make their facility available. Please e-mail it to me, including name full phone number and work and home town info.
I am also interest in hearing from players suggesting potential new playing locations in Central CT, or in Western CT between the Waterbury and Danbury areas. Hopefully Gym type rooms at least as large as the Fairfield Gym - about 65 by 55 ft. minimum, hopefully available 2 or more evening or weekend times per week for 3.5 or more hours at a modest cost. Please e-mail me before attempting to speak with any such organization on our behalf.
Check back from time to time, and I will also try to contact those I can when any playing location related news occurs in late 2010 or in 2011.
Thanks for your patience and encouragement, and any ideas about available playing facilities. Please visit Fairfield if you can, Saturday afternoons if making it there on Thursday nights isn't feasable due to work schedules.
Fairfield is about an hour from Hartford, or a 45 minute drive from the Southern Waterbury or Meriden/Wallingford areas, or about 1/2 hour from New Haven, or the the Westrock tunnel of the parkway - rte 15 - almost 100% via highways except for the last mile from I-95 exit 21.
