Regarding Weather:

From Jack: when the league was formed, captains voted not to stop playing in the event of light rain, or wet fields, and only to call it off in the event of lightning. We also do not play in heavy downpour or when the fields are so soaked that we would do damage to the fields. Judging when to play and when not to is difficult. Fortunately the league has volunteers who serve on a "weather committee" to make those decisions as best as possible. We don't always get it right to everyone's satisfaction. Anyone interested can join that committee.

Ultimately, every player is responsible for their own pleasure and safety, no one "has to" play. There are no prizes to win, the league simply provides an organized place where people can play volleyball with like minded people. The league has a 2 no show forfeit allowance before a team is ejected from the league. Teams that choose not to play due to adverse weather conditions are not charged with a no show forfeit.
