Vimy Summer Lacrosse Trip – Day 2

Now we cross our fingers and hope that the rain stays away for the next two days so we can get some games in.  A long ways to come and then to be disappointed.  Though if you look at the kids you would never see disappointment.  Even when the game was cancelled the kids still stayed on the field and played a little scrimmage.  They only quit playing when the park personnel  came by and asked us to leave so we would not damage the field.  The other team was gone in seconds, but the hearty Canadians were not going to leave without playing, even if it meant an intra squad game.

Looking forward to a little sun tomorrow.  Please.
