1. Seriously: Referee shortage critical in region
In case you missed it, The Dalles Chronicle, on October 25, 2017, published an article describing the serious shortage of referees for school athletics: “The number of referees available to preside over basketball games in five counties has declined to the point that it could soon adversely affect the ability of young athletes to compete. … more officials are needed to take a neutral point of view and make spot decisions that enforce the rules of the game for students from fifth grade through high school. There are currently 37 referees but 50 are needed to make sure there are two on the floor at every competition…” Read the full story here: http://www.thedalleschronicle.com/news/2017/oct/25/referee-shortage-critical-region/

4. Sherman County School Little League Field Volunteers Postpone Sod
The Little League field project volunteers at Sherman County School will have to postpone Friday’s sod laying day. The weather is expected to get into the 20’s this weekend. This is too cold for the laying of grass sod. When the sod is cut, it shocks the root system. When the fresh cut sod is cut from the farm it needs to be put back onto soft (non frozen ground). It takes about ten days of above freezing temperatures to adhere to the new soil.
So with this in mind we are shooting for next Tuesday for the first portion of laying fresh sod on the field.
We will need lots of help to finish this important step.
We want and need this field to be ready for our Sherman County kids the 2018 baseball season. Please feel free to contact Geremy Shull at 541-980-0802 for updates and volunteer opportunities!
