F.N.N.H-Friday Night Net Hiatus

First off, there comes a time when all you can say is “All dogs are dead, aren’t you glad you’re pup”. With that random thought in mind, we are placing our net on hiatus*.

The WCRL is in the process of revamping and retrofitting our league activities in an effort to make things a tad more intriguing.

Of course these discussions are of the utmost secrecy and the person that gave me this information is speaking on a condition of anonymity.

So be forwarned that if you’re at the movies with your girl and you excuse yourself and sneak out in the parking lot to check in to the Friday night net….you may get a cold shoulder. And this article is intended to ensure that it isn’t the 2nd one of the night.

Happy Valentine’s Day Ya’ll
