I know some leagues don’t do concessions, but for those of you that do… If you’re having trouble getting volunteers, buy a space heater for the concession stand. Once the weather turns cold, they’ll flock to it in droves. Last night we had FIVE people behind the counter drinking coffee and huddling around the heater while their kids were practicing! Hmmm, maybe if you promise the coaches free coffee you’ll get more to signup. “Why freeze over on the parent sideline … we’ll keep a warm cup of coffee in your hand on the coaches sideline!”

In all seriousness, it sure seems to have turned colder here in NC a lot earlier than previous years. Maybe it’s just my imagination and my inability to stay in my nice warm house vs. being out on the fields.
