Catching Up

Readers of this blog have noted the lack of posts & long delays in updating pages over the past 7 months or so. As I explained to the team captains some 6 weeks ago, personal matters were overwhelming me & I hoped to have completed the work by December 1st.

Well, that date has come, gone & there is still a bit to do. The most important things such as quick reports on the 2016 playoffs & 2016-17 results thus far are first in the queue. A full archiving of last season & building of team pages will have to wait further.

In all 4 hours of work remain.
