8 November, 2011  


The stately Tamaraack Pines have begun to turn the most beautiful yellow brown you can imagine. This is when we know autumn is here. All the other trees except the willow have shed their leaves, the grass is still green but winter is slowly turning the corner and coming up Main StIt’s rainy and cold here at World Headquarters. As November begins it’s blustery beat down, we…

Commissioner Craig’s Corner

Dateline: Clinton, WI

27 November, 2009


The SLA Winter Meetings for 2009 went off without a hitch this evening. I’m happy to report that the world is still spinning despite the absence of the Detroit, Dearborn, Boston, D.C., Brighton and Portugal delegates. (Voting was sure a lot easier!) (It really is good to be the Peoples Commissioner!)

So in brief, here is a recap. Westby, WI made a very attractive bid to host the 2010 SLA World Championships at Ella… Continue

In his few days filming the SLA championships in Clinton, WI, he made a lasting and memorable impression on many. Samples of his still and video… Continue

"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

15 January, 2008


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.

I hear that the Detroit Risers have picked up the option on Joe Crill, and with Megan due back this year....they will be formidable. (Antony? You in?) Is this the year Boston puts it all together? Perhaps, Twister Sister will finally play… Continue

19 October 2005


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
