Friendly “Mother Nature”

2018:  We’re not starting our 2018 spring/summer season on a positive note with 90+ temps on Opening Day, May 26.  We were forced to cancel all afternoon games beginning at 1:30.

2017:  Mother Nature has been very unpredictable this spring,  summer, AND fall of 2017.  Had to cancel several game days due to excessive heat.  Postponed our annual DMPD & FD Night THRICE because of the weather; ended up playing two ALL STAR games on 9/7.  Lovely evening…maybe we’ll schedule this event in September next year!  And now postponing our Halloween party from 10/10 to 10/12 due to rain, wind, and cold brrrr temps!

2016:  We’re been very fortunate the last several seasons–last fall we cancelled NO games because of weather.  And had a beautiful, crisp fall evening in mid October for our first-ever Halloween party in 2016.

 On the other hand, we’ve had some challenges on Saturday mornings just getting to the KML ball park–there have been all sorts of charity walks and runs that have closed streets around us, especially Martin Luther King Parkway, as well as heavy traffic/parking due to the Downtown Farmers Market.  SO much to do in Des Moines these days!
