Tomorrow’s planned competitions are cancelled and we will be cancelling Sunday events until further notice.
On Thursday, Mayor Hogsett addressed the city with new policies and the Marion County Health Department issued new guidelines in a Public Health Order to combat the current COVID-19 situation in our city. The new regulations do allow for non-contact exercising in groups and the policies we’ve implemented for our practices comply with the City’s/County’s policies and CDC’s recommendations. Unfortunately the reality is that things this week are worse than they were last week.
This Thursday and Friday had the most positive COVID cases issued in Indiana since the pandemic started. On top of that the numbers look like they are continuing to trend upward. After hearing the Mayor’s and Health Department’s new policies and seeing the recent COVID positive numbers the board had an internal discussion and then a vote on whether or not we should continue to host events in the midst of this.
The board determined that at this time it would be best to postpone all activities and we will do our best to gauge when we can get back out there to have some non-contact fun.
If there is a silver lining with this it is that our competition committee will use this extra time to put together a lot of fun and engaging competitions for the club. This week Coach Shoe and his group put together a great day of fun and safe games. The group has a lot of other ideas in the works so when we’re able to get back on the pitch we will have a good lineup of games to play.
I hope you understand that the board made this decision because we think it is what’s best for our club members and our community at this time.
