I appreciate everyone’s patience. Here is what I know:
No Jeffco student travel outside Colorado (International and domestic) until further notice.
Tomorrow, AM I will have to start to cancel our V and JV games; chartered bus; and team hotel reservations at the Hampton Inn & Suites – Peoria Sports Complex (AZ).
I suggest that our C-Team do the same.
I am sorry for the inconveniences. To say the least, this Spring season has been challenging on more than one front.
I have to come up with a Plan B ASAP for finding and scheduling +3 games for the V and JV. For the V, this is important because of possible RPI ramifications. This is even more difficult to accomplish, since our field is not playable. So those games if I can schedule them, will be away during SB but obviously within Colorado. I am scrambling to find a venue and H.S. teams to play 3/23-28.
This Saturday’s game against RFHS in Grand Junction is still on. Game is at Canyon View Park, 4PM start time. I am working on securing a pre-game practice field for hitting, ground and fly ball work Saturday since getting some time out on a baseball field is critical at this point. There is no bus and we will have to rely on parents, coaches driving over there. No players should be driving since it is 4 hrs over to Grand Junction and we will run into skier traffic on the way over. I need help with this and appreciate volunteer drivers to help with getting our players to GJ.
We also need volunteer help with getting our baseball field playable and for practicing.
