The Bait Bucket tourney is coming up this weekend and NPL is excited to be bringing 4 teams!!!  By now you should have heard from the team managers as they have provided some key info and there will be more to come in the next few days. 

At the tourney we will have a designated tent/table area setup on Saturday and Sunday at a central location at the fields.  This will be the main meeting place for before and after the games.  There will be a number of things we will be bringing down and can use some help with transportation.  So if you some spare room or are bringing a truck, please let me know if you can help with the following items to bring:

  • 3 folding tables - 1 more
  • 2 chairs - 2 left
  • 2 wheeled carts - need 1 more

Players will soon be participating in their High School and OLC seasons.  I wish all of you the best of luck.  Both myself and some of the coaches will be at a lot of the games cheer on our players as well as keeping eye on their progress.  The work but in during the spring season on and off the field will be huge in the preparation for this summer.  Please remember you not only represent your spring team, you are also representing NPL as some of the elite players in the state so please be proud of that and play the game with respect.  

A few things to keep in mind and an eye on over the next few months: 

  • Will be sharing player evaluations soon
  • Will be posting testing results soon
  • Working on final decision if a U10 team will be an option this year
  • Please be sure to like nepremierlax on FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram to get all the latest news   
  • Team managers have issued information on tourneys and hotels so be sure to get those booked
  • 3rd payment will be sent out soon
  • Finalizing uniform numbers now so I may be reaching out to you to confirm if needed

Helmets and Bags

We are looking at placing orders for 2 items (see attached for pictures): 

  • Cascade S Helmet (Youth $220, Adult $250)
  • Maverick Monster Team Bag ($50)

Again, these items are totally optional but we do get better pricing than if you would buy it separately (save about $100 per helmet).  But there is a minimum order number that needs to be met.  We will need to get 12 helmets and 13 bags to get this pricing.  

So I am collecting the FINAL list to see if we can met these numbers.  If you are interested in ordering either or both of these items, please reply to this email.  I am looking for responses by Next Wednesday Feb 30th

SmugMug - Photos & Videos

NPL has purchased and created a SmugMug account for the organization.  The intent of this is to be able to have an effective place to share large quantities for photos for ALL NPL events.  Below is the link to the main homepage for this NPL account: 

https://nepremierlax.smugmug.com/

With the link above, you will ONLY see the general NPL events that we share with the public.  I have purposefully locked down the NPL travel team photos and restricted them to only those who have the proper link.  The link to view all the 2018 Travel Team photos is shown below.  Please note that you will need to save this link as you will not be able to access if from the main homepage:  

https://nepremierlax.smugmug.com/NPL-Travel-Teams/n-CgTt7C

I know many of you parents take photos at the tournaments so I would love to get some of your photos so that it can be shared by all players/parents.  So I plan to use this SmugMug account as the place to do this.  But in order to upload photos, you will need a special link for each folder that is created on the site.  If you have photos that you would like to share, please reply back to this email and I will send you the instructions and links. 

Would greatly appreciate you sharing your photos. 

Thanks, Kurt
