2013-2014 WINTER Schedule
As in previous years, our Thanksgiving Week schedule features a switch in our mid-week Fairfield Schedule from Thursday night play to the previous Tuesday evening.
Saturday afternoon play in Fairfield continues as normally scheduled on Thanksgiving weekend.
Bethany Sunday play is ON for the Sunday before Thanksgiving
The decision regarding Bethany play on the Sunday AFTER Thanksgiving will probably be finalized and announced during the previous Sunday session based on turnout that Sunday, and player interest expressed then, and IF cancelled, will be announced on the Bethany Club information message line recording by the following week, by Sunday afternoon at the latest..
As with possible winter severe storm cancellations, depending on when the decision is finalized, it might NOT be announced on the website or by e-mail. This is the reason the recorded message phone numbers supplement the website's information.
Christmas/New Years Eve/Day
With these holidays falling on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, play in both Fairfield and Bethany should not be affected this year.
Severe Winter Weather
While cancellations don't normally occur due to typical winter snow storms, Blizzard conditions or freezing rain storms can be the exception, including heavy snow occuring on the weekend or after rush hour when highway plowing may be delayed.
Decisions in those cases are often delayed to be sure any Weather report storm predictions are confirmed by actual weather and road conditons in or near southern or central Connecticut.
E-mails or website changes due to weather often can't be made in a timely manner, so please use the appropriate message phone lines for Fairfield or Bethany before leaving for a scheduled session if weather conditions seem questionable, and use your own judgement, even if the club IS open, based on weather and road conditions in your own town and neighborhood.
Please call from your cell phone if possible, so I can call you back after you've heard the message, should a later change occur, whether cancelling a session if conditions worsen, or restoring it if an expected storm doesn't hit the area with enough force to require a cancellation.
It would be helpful too, if you are a regular player, AND/OR drive a distance to play, to provide me with your full name and town via an instant message or voicemail from your cell number in case I need to contact you due to an unexpected cancellation due to issues such as localized Power failures or other facility issues that may not make the news in your area of the state.
