Thankyou to all of those who turned out to play on Sunday. What a fantastic day it was and a good time had by all 12 or so players.
The pitch was hard, fast and wide with all players choosing to ignore the boundary cones at times. I dont really see the point of having a boundary. The ball always seem to gravitate towards the goals eventually. There were some admirable stacks and a few self inflicted malletings.

The wood/pvc mallets started shattering even before we got underway but at least we had enough to get us through. What we can learn is that your mallet needs to be bomb proof and have an internal diameter not larger than 50mm unless it is capped. I still cant find any ABS gas pipe so I might fiberglass reinforce some 50mm PVC for the MkII mallets.
Our next organised game (if you can call it that) will be held on Sunday 21st December at 2:00pm, same location. If that all goes well we will kick start it again in the New Year. Of course there is nothing stopping people playing at anytime. It really is up to you.
