Updated VIPL Severe Weather Protocol- January 2018

In response to several incidents before the winter break, the Upper and Lower Island executive boards have approved an updated VIPL Severe weather protocol for use from today forward.

A copy can be found HERE.

Of particular note - on questionable weather days, teams must follow the field open/closed decision of the host club.  If your field is open (and roads are safe), you must play.  If your field is closed, you may not use it.
