At the time of this writing, I am six weeks removed from total knee replacement
surgery. Although the prognosis is good, it has been a slow and frustrating
process. I am able to walk but the pain is still there and constant.
Pitching a quoit is not yet possible and I have still not been able to return to
work. That being said, we are fast approaching quoit season and I felt it
necesssary to reach out to the memberhip in hopes of starting on May 4.
First of all, I will need a commitment from all players that plan on
returning for the 2018 season. Please contact me in the next week or
two and let me know your intent. I'm not sure how many we will have
so let me know if you plan to return. Once I have a firm number, we can
go about the logistics of the 2018 season. As kneeling down, at this
time, is nearly impossible, we will need to manicure the pits and
general pit area for play. I usually take it upon myself to get
things ready, but this year I will need help from the players. If I
can not get the required help from the guys, I can have the pits
done by paying someone. That will increase the dues and I was hoping
to avoid that. I will set aside a weekend in April that we can get
together and groom the pits, paint the quoits and prepare for
opening day. I'm sure we can make it a work and play day.
I'd like to keep dues at 60.00 for the year and have members commit
to keeping nthe pits playable throughout the year while I
convalesce. I am hoping to be able to play on opeming night. This
gives me seven weeks to get there. So if you could, send me a text
or e-mail and let me know where you are in the scheme of things.
Hope to hear from you guys soon.
