2018 Season Opener
The 2018 Season is quickly approaching, as it is just a few short weeks until our scheduled start date of June 2nd. We have been monitoring the field conditions over the past month, watching the progress since the end of winter. The last snowfall added a lot of water to the field and the surrounding area, and effectively reset the drying that had happened prior.
The picture below shows some of the water levels on the trails just one week ago. The water shown in the picture is just under 5" over the grade of the trail, and after accounting for the softness of the ground it was possible to sink in up to nearly knee deep.
We are however quite happy with the amount of drying that has happened over the past week though. A number of the trails have started to firm up, and many are passable. There are still wet and soft sections of the field, and some trails still have standing water, where sinking is possible. That said we are hopeful that the field will be ready for the first game. The current forecast looks pretty good, and we are hoping for some warm, windy days.
We are currently anticipating that the Season Opener on June 2nd will be hosted as scheduled. There is a good chance some areas of the field will still be wet for the first game, but we are hopeful that enough of it will be dry enough to host a great game day. We will still be monitoring the field conditions as the Opener approaches, and will provide updated information if anything changes.
We are the Sons of Thunder, fighting for the hearts of the lost, the damned, the broken; seeking first the Kingdom of God. Let our voice be heard by all those willing to listen. Hear us, Join us, Fight with us, Sons of Thunder.
Our mission is simple, seek after the Kingdom of our God, and share His good news with all who are willing to listen. The Sons of Thunder of the Bible, James and John, were the sons of Zebedee, a fisherman. These brothers encountered Jesus while mending fishing nets and immediately left their lives and family to follow after Him. James and John were boisterous men that were quick to action; they were men like many of us, flawed, brash, and short of temper. They were also zealous men that followed after our Saviour, Jesus. These men became Disciples, dedicating their lives in service for God, seeing the blessings He provides. These brothers were transformed, made into new men in the presence of Jesus. Make no mistake they were still zealous men, but they're zeal was for the Lord. Our outreach is named after these brothers, because we are much like them. We can be aggressive and sometimes quick to action, but we encountered Jesus and our lives were never the same. We seek after His Kingdom, and desire to share our faith with anyone who wants to listen.
The Sons of Thunder is a 501c3 non-profit Christian organization that works in our community through outreach events. We seek to provide an environment where families and friends can come together and enjoy time in fellowship; where bonds can be built and strengthened. We also spend time in the Word at our events, sharing our faith with any who chose to listen. We welcome everyone to our events, from all walks of life; if you'd like to spend time in fellowship we will gladly have you.
Simply put, we are a group of men seeking after the Lord, serving Him in our community. We have seen Him work in our lives, and through our outreach. We welcome you to experience it too.
