The federal government might be shut down, affecting many players, fans, umpires and scorekeepers in the league, but rest assured the PWL is open for business.
In fact, there is a bunch of business we have to conduct this week. So much, we came up with a list for you to keep you up to date.
- POST SEASON AWARDS – All players who were on an official roster received a ballot in their inbox to select the nominees for this season’s awards. From MVP, to Cy Young, to Gold Gloves, we want to recognize the best, or at least, the most popular, players in the league. The deadline to vote on the nominations is NOON ON WEDNESDAY. After that another ballot will go out to select the final award winners.
- POST SEASON SURVEY – Each season we do a post-season survey to get your feedback so we can improve the league. Please take time now to fill out the survey, so we can get your opinion on how things are going. It’s a long one, but an important one. We want EVERYONE to fill this out, former players, current players, guests, fans who got drug out to Gravelly. Even that creepy guy with the neon bike shorts that watches us from behind the trees. Everyone! Click “here”: to fill out the survey.
- AWARDS DINNER / HR DERBY / ALL STAR GAME – Once again, we’re doing this immediately AFTER the World Series, whether the government is open or not! Food and drinks are on the league. Come early to catch the end of the World Series and stay to pickup some hardware. Oh…and to see who hits the most home runs and watch the return of the All Star Game. Every team has a player in the All Star game, come support yours. You MUST RSVP on our Facebook page so that we have a proper count for food. So, please come, but please RSVP.
BACKUP LOCATION IF GOVERNMENT IS CLOSED FOR WORLD SERIES/CHAMPS DINNER/HR DERBY/ALL STAR GAME:
Utah Park Diamond, S Utah St and 32nd Rd, Arlington, VA 22206
- PLAYOFFS, PLAYOFFS, PLAYOFFS – Even with Gravelly temporarily closed the post-season must go on. We’re playing the two DCS series this week, UNDER THE LIGHTS. The Twits and Gumballers will play tonight starting at 7:30 PM and the Canvassers and Superman’s Wheelchair will play Wednesday. We’ll be way up in Boyds, Maryland, at the Maryland SoccerPlex. We’ll then move back inside the beltway Sunday (either at Utah Park or Gravelly Point) for the World Series. This will be the 4th and 5th playoff series played at night, and our first ever games played in Maryland.
Please watch the website and follow us on twitter @potomacwiffle to stay informed about events. We look forward to seeing you SUNDAY!
