The 2023 Calendar is posted. Have a great winter!
The league is full as of January 31st.
Even though our league is full it's a good idea to get your name on the waiting list in case we need to replace players after the season starts.
We sometimes lose players due to injury, job changes etc., plus you should get plenty of opportunities to spare.
