Saturday matinee group growing Posted on February 14, 2016 at 05:58:32 PM by Jeff "Laca" Conway
The good old fashioned Saturday matinee performances have been gaining in participation this year. The performance this past Saturday drew a record 13 players including some of our top players. Hopefully the turnouts will continue this pace till at least late May when the heat takes over. Outside of that rainy Saturday, the weather has been nice with sunny skies and temps in the upper 60s to low 70s. In NYC last night, the wind chill was -23 degrees while our friends in Connecticut were looking at 10 degrees for the high today.
The previous Saturday would have had a similar turnout till unpredicted rain starting rolling in just before post time and then never stopped. Other Saturday's this year have been averaging 6-8 players per performance.
However the past two Saturday's may have been due to the normal busy performance Sunday being "canceled" for the past two weeks for the Super Bowl and Valentine's Day. Replies:
