Re: covid and MH

I hope I am wrong on this, but I do not see how the pause ends on 12/18. Nor do I. I expect another case surge after Thanksgiving with deaths surging (again) just before Christmas. It looks bleak. Lee If it is true that we're going to start seeing a vaccine on December 11 (what the CDC stated this ...

Thanks for the note. You used the term "youth" sports. Does youth include HS?
Yes, the demarcation appears to be between Pro/College and "youth sports."

Re: MSHSL Oct 1st Meeting (Boys Hockey Season Fate)

Do you mind divulging your source? At least what industry/agency he/she works in? Will ice arenas be shut down? It would have to go to another level for ice arenas to be shut down; but the trend is not positive. I believe we could see rinks shuttered from Thanksgiving through January if we don't fl...

Re: MSHSL moves football to spring

No answers, but would opine that the fall decision begins to build a roadmap for hockey. When you see colleges and universities planning to wrap up the fall semester by Thanksgiving, it doesn't bode well for business as usual for hockey in November. I'm guessing, at best, we are looking at delayed s...

Starting football season on March 15 is really rolling the dice on hoping for good weather. None of this seems to bode well for anything resembling a normal November start for hockey.
Hard to argue with either point.
