Dear Commissioner, Is the amount of pay that you are requesting union scale and have you paid any dues in the past three years. This is a celebration of SLA, not Year of the Scab. Shop Steward

Well.....the paint on the house is damn near dry, still a little tacky on the porch, but with today's warm breezes we'll be fine! The new signs are up on all the fields, and looking good. (I think we now have more old signs on the back fence than current field signs, but the kids will have more things to paint!!!!) Plus all 3 scoreboards have been replaced and upgraded with a special coating for 'dry erase' markers!!(Make sure you get the dry erase from the new Kitchen Nazi,… Continue

Spring has finally arrived !!!! Here at World Headquarters, we know it is official when the Tamarack Pines burst forth with the most beautiful green needles. Perhaps it is because they are the only pine tree that loses their needles each year, but I'm telling wake up after a spring rain one day, and these 130 year old trees are magnificent. Resurrection, rebirth, starting's all here, and it's all good!

We have begun to take things… Continue

I hope all is well wih you. We are very happy with your response to the web site.........if I do in fact live another year or two, Kelly, says he will teach me to actually use it properly. For instance right now I'm just trying to send out this little note and see if I can get it right.......(shut up Tocco).

We're also hoping to have another section (tab...?) for teams to start posting their rosters and maybe getting a little 'spring stove'… Continue

Proud death

Hi all,

I believe the "Death be not proud" came from John Donne, but he was probably quoting St. Paul.

"Death be not proud, even you shall die."

St. Paul


By jingo netlees, where to begin? I was given permission to skip the winter meetings letter! I was busy!!! Carol had wanted to try her hand at lifesaving and CPR, and she needed a volunteer. I suggested one of those lifelike ‘dummies’, but she really wanted to make it more real, so I said, ‘sure I’ll play the dead guy’. And I did! Yeah we all know how great she was, and is, BUT...... let us not forget.... I did play… Continue

Over the past few days, I have been in touch with the producer of the Motion Picture about Stoopball and other street game(I could say movie, but why not class it up a bit, eh?), any way...we are negotiating a settlement of their outstanding balance due. The Film (pronounced fillum) is in post production and should actually be done in the next few months. No bull shit!!!!!!!!! Plus 'their people' and 'our people' are in 'meetings' regarding a possible World Premier at the 2008… Continue

Every year, on the first Friday after Thanksgiving, the Stoopball League of America convenes to discuss and debate issues of great importance that come before it. One of the most important issues that are discussed is the picking of the Championship dates for the following year. We came together again this past November and picked a date for 2008. ( But that wasn’t good enough for some of you!) Well, after much weeping and gnashing of teeth, it has been decided that the… Continue

The season is on!!!! We are working like dogs here at world headquarters to present the best ever SLA Championships! With just nine weeks till 'GO TIME', the George and Zeta Memorial Complex is coming along slowly, but.....surely.

We finally got a little rain the other day. It was the first precipitation we‚ve had since you folks left. Dry! Dry! Dry! The work here continues. I finally got all the signs down and although everything is not really put away, it is out of view. Last on the list is the tiki area lights. (I‚m trying to talk myself into leaving them up year round.)

Life here at world headquarters goes on. Construction is underway on the new improvements that were approved by the… Continue
