Fairfield Cancellation Due to Jan 23rd Storm

  Fairfield P&R has cancelled all activities, including ours, for Saturday Jan 23rd due to concerns over the East Coast Snow storm.

  We expect to play on Sunday evening, Jan 24th in Bethany and/or might make up the missed Fairfield session on Sunday afternoon or evening - or Monday evening depending on the severity of the storm and progress of area road plowing. Website update for these decisions might not occur.

 Regular players thought to be likely participants were texted on Friday evening if they had joined my text list previously by texting their name and town to my cell phone (203) 525-6l94 .

 If you didn't receive a text on Jan 22nd, please re-text me your Name and town. If you aren't a frequent or recent player, please text me anytime you are driving a distance to play at least an hour before Fairfield sessions or 1/2 hour before Bethany sessions so I can respond before I begin driving to either site myself if you have concerns about a potential cancellation. 

  I keep these to a minimum during minor storms or holidays, but decisions are sometimes made for me by the host facilities. Due to usual differences in town policies, and in the frequency and amount of snow between Fairfield and Bethany, cancellations have been less frequent in Fairfield than in Bethany in previous winters.

  In addition to texting, I update the recorded messages at the dedicated phone line for either or both clubs if a schedule change occurs as soon as I can, for those of you who wish to check, especially if you aren't a frequent participant or don't have a cell phone to receive texts.

 Calls to those numbers (listed at the website mainpage) ring a few times at my cell phone before forwarding to a message, so I may answer, or call or text you back, especially if I don't have the phone you call from in my phone contacts, or the schedule changes after you call but before the next playing session.

  The website lists schedule changes whenever I have enough advance warning to update it. But occasionally the situation may only allow me time for updating the phone messages, especially when changing weather or road conditions require cancelation on shorter notice.

  Of course driving skills, road conditions and weather can vary from town to town, so use your own judgement and caution in deciding whether to attend even if we are open, including expected changes during the scheduled playing time.
