Here are my constraints for when people are coming up with event dates:
a. Nov 1st/2nd is when we go off of daylight savings. As a comparison, here are the sunset times:
Nov 1st 5:56 PM
Nov 2nd 4:46 PM
Nov 8th 4:48 PM
An hour before sunset the sun is 15 degrees above the horizon (hold your fist out at arm's length and put your pinky on the horizon. Your index knuckle is at 15 deg. How do I know this? B/c I am the man that's why). 15 degrees is basically dark as that would put the sun below the nets so we only have till 3:48 p.m. to get the games in.
If people want to play outside, we are going to be playing in the dark. That also gives us NO slack time in case refs show up late, teams show up late etc. We are also NOT delaying games to the next event as everybody is already playing 4 matches at event #3.
OR we can go indoor to LVP
OR we need to find an outdoor xball capable field with lights
