Should be a warm and sunny evening perfect to run around after work. There is setup for Vietnam war commemoration that starts tomorrow at one end of the field. There should still be enough space for us to have a few fields, but if there isn’t we’ll relocate across the street from the WW2 memorial.

Monday touch in the tidal basin 5:30pm
Spectacular weather! Come have a run
Saturday touch on the tidal basin 9:30am
Beautiful day for a run. Try to get out a little early to stretch, warm up, or whatever you need to do to get ready to run at 9:30.
Wednesday touch on JFK hockey fields 5:30pm
It’s going to be a little chilly this evening with the realfeel around 50F. Potential for scattered showers, but with only 30% probability we should be mostly dry. We’ll be on the hockey fields again as it looks like Wallenberg was already booked.
Touch is on (or near) JFK hockey fields tonight 5:30pm
Head to JFK hockey fields, but be ready for last minute updates if we need to move for any reason.
Some of the other sports leagues around town are starting up their spring schedules, which means we might have to start competing for field space, even on weekdays. We didn’t jump on the field reservations early enough so tidal basin is already reserved by someone else for today and Wednesday. JFK hockey fields aren’t available for reservation until May 16th, which usually means NPS is working on the field. But until those fields are physically closed off we will use that as the fallback for days we don’t get Wallenberg, including tonight. In case they are closed, we may move just across 17th to the fields next to the Washington monument.
Touch on the tidal basin Saturday 9:30am
The rain will be over, but it will remain cloudy and chilly. Your feet will get wet, although this shouldn’t deter anyone from coming out to have a little fun. There is a chance the park rangers will boot us is the field remains too soggy, in which case we will relocate.
Wednesday at the tidal basin pitch 5:30pm (aka Wallenberg field)
Should be a lovely evening about 63F. Come out for some great exercise after work. If you haven’t been out or aren’t familiar with the location see the map below. New, visiting and rusty players welcome.
Monday touch on the tidal basin 5:30pm
We’ll probably bounce back and forth between the tidal basin during the weeknights and the JFK hockey fields on Saturdays. The hockey fields can accomodate more pitches, which is nice with the number of people on the weekend. Tidal basin is still more convenient, so we’ll try to stick with that for Mondays and Wednesdays.
Saturday JFK hockey fields
mea culpa. I forgot to put the update last night. But just in case anyone is looking for us JFK is the spot
Wednesday 4/19 touch is on the Tidal Basin 5:30pm
Thanks to some helpful reconnaissance, it looks like the Wallenberg field is back open. It doesn’t appear there are any competing reservations, but there is no guarantee Volo or another group won’t already be camped out. We’ll give it a shot, but be aware there could be last minute shift to JFK or another field.
Otherwise great weather for some after work touch!
