Seems a bit premature to cancel a summer outdoor league. It may be the right call. But it seems like that call could have been made closer to the end of the month depending on what the Covid landscape looks like.  Sorry to hear about the kids disappointment. That sucks.

Not really given the phases we are looking at as things try to reopen.  NoVa is still a hotspot per numbers and while other areas in the state might be able to get to phase 3 sooner the word I'm getting is that NoVa will take some time.  Even if phase 2 comes June 10 it still limits crowds to 50 people.  Can't run a swim meet with 50 people.  So out of an abundance of caution and not keep people in limbo they made the call.

Def sucks but wasn't a surprise.  We will adjust and make the best we can out of things.

I got ice cream at the Keyes creamery ice cream stand in Harford county  2 weekends ago. 

It was phenomenal .

We picked up a few pints of Taharka Bros in Hampden area.  So good!

Another COVID casualty. My kids summer swim league canceled due to the pandemic.  Got some sad kids in the house tonight

Same, my son is totally bummed.  Will be interesting to see how if they open community pools.

Probably not the instant kind, huh?

You got that right!

Thought I do not begrudge someone who does the instant ones. I used to eat those too when younger.

Can we open it up again? Why was it even shutdown?

I’m glad to hear that you don’t judge. We’ve got the pantry loaded with instant packs. Perfect for the two of us and so many great artificial  flavors!

Hard to beat these. 

Even my mom, who is a great cook, uses them when she doesn't have the time.

They really are bomb. I was shocked the first time I tried them. A tad pricey, but worth it if you don't want to make them yourself.

@mappy

Finally watched the Westworld finale.

Overall I was not overly impressed by the last 2 episodes. However, the after the credits scenes in the finale were pretty epic.  I hope the game gets upped a bit for next season. I was totally into this season early on- and how different it was- but then I kinda got a bit bored with the 'story line' as the season went on.

I feel like this was the weakest season so far. I love the premise of Dolores wanting the human race to make their own choices, but it took way too long to get there. And Maeve's whole storyline was terrible. I get it, she wants to be in the Sublime with her daughter, but my god, 7 episodes of nothing before she finally figured it out? Come on.. 

With that said, season 4 hopefully will be awesome. Caleb/Maeve vs Halores/HostWilliam... yes please.

It was mostly my fault. Instead of ignoring the trolls I got into a flame war with them and it made the thread mostly useless garbage.

Might not be feasible everywhere, but limited hours and reserved times w seating capacities could work at pools. 

My community has 3 outdoor pools w member only access. I'd think you can work something out there. Are you more likely to get sick at the pool vs the gym, trail, beach, etc?

I'm on the board for the pool I belong to.  We have been working on plans for the possibility we will open with rules in place that follow the guidelines.

For small neighborhood pools the list is daunting.  One of the bigger issues is enforcement.  Pools are mostly staffed with teenagers.  they will now be asked to do things above and beyond what they are supposed to do.  Training, supplies, cleaning, etc, etc, etc.  

And the policing they might have to do opens such a can of worms.  We live in an age of entitlement where members don't want to listen and be told when they are doing or their kids are doing something wrong.

It is a massive headache and without clear guidance from the health dept the planning for opening has been a nightmare.

My investment...ok folly, of installing an inground pool 7 years ago might actually payoff this year....it better be hot and sunny this summer, so far, not so much.....   I can't wait to do video conference calls while floating in my pool...#winning....until I drop the phone in the drink.....

Well there was @PhineasC, he makes some valid points but always throws in a hefty dash of the culture war stuff.  “All the elite people enjoying the quarantine ordering door dash...” But then there was one guy who just posted worthless comparisons to the flu nonstop and another guy who posted some incoherent nonsense.  At the end of the day the thread was fine.  I say open it up!!!
