Albion basketball Wednesday nights!
[03/31/19] We are now done with old men basketball for the season.
[03/21/19] The last few weeks have been really hard to get enough guys to play five on five. We will play next Wednesday, however, if we don’t get a sufficient amount of players, we will just be done for the season. If we manage to get enough guys we will talk about playing a little bit longer.
[03/13/19] Speech is ending early. We can play at normal time now.
[03/12/19] All 3 gyms are in use tomorrow in Albion for the district speech meet. I was told they should be available by 730. Do you guys want to start at 7:30?
[02/28/19] Old man Leauge is back to full force next Wednesday! I hope to see everyone there! Please let others know!
[02/12/19] There will be NO old man Leauge this week due to sun-districts being played in albion
So the guys that are not in Leauge really struggled last week to have enough guys to play. They are in the old gym on Wednesday nights starting around 630. If you need a warm up game or just want to play some more ball before or after your game, please consider joining them for a bit. If you know guys coming from out of town, please pass that along too. Thanks!
[01/08/19] Plans have once again changed. There will be some games played in Albion and some Played in Newman Grove for the Newman Leauge. I think the way things are scheduled that the non-Newman Leauge people will still have enough left plus guys to play after or before Leauge games.
[01/07/19] I was told tonight that the decision was made to keep the Leauge in Newman Grove this year. We will continue to show up for Old Man ball on Wednesday nights at 630
[01/03/19] I still have not received a definite answer as to whether or not the Newman Leauge is coming to albion. I know that if so they will start on the 23rd. Is anyone from our league who is not already on a team, interested and putting a team together? I think we have a possibility of 4 or 5 who are wanting to.
[12/25/18] The gym WILL be open tomorrow for old man ball! Please spread the word!
[12/20/18] Just some information for those who have not heard. There is a very real possibility that the Newman Grove basketball league is moving to Albion. I’m suppose to hear from Jon Perone when it is official. I’m not sure what this means for the rest of us. But my understanding is it starts just after the first of the year. Thoughts?
[11/02/18] Reminder!!!! Ball starts on Nov 7th! Spread the word!
[09/21/18] The dates are set for Old Man Ball. November 7th to April 24th. We have no fee for the gym this year!
I received the following email from Mrs. Hardwick tonight regarding a conversation we had toward the end of last basketball season.
Board policy was addressed tonight on community use of facility. You no longer need to collect money to use the gym, nor do you need to pay any fees. Please plan to communicate with Jon Perone about the nights you would like to use the facility this winter! And, thank you for bringing your concerns to me on this issue.
[04/18/18] We gonna have enough tonight? Weather is perfect for one last week!
This coming up Wednesday is the LAST night of ball this season! I will be there and hope to have enough show up to play some good games! It is suppose to be colder so it’ll be a great last night!Please spread the word!
[04/08/18] Anybody heading to fullerton for ball?
[04/06/18] I will not be there next week to play ball. I hear there was only 4 guys last week. Just to try to help those few guys out, will there be enough to play next Wednesday?
[03/26/18] I just went into the high school office and paid for us through April 18. That leaves me about $45 shy of paid in full. So if there are some guys who haven’t kicked in yet, please do.
[03/23/18] Here’s the situation. I made just shy of the amount to cover the basketball season that was scheduled until March 14th. We were approached this past week and told we need to reserve the gym if we plan to play anymore this year. Two people kicked in 40 bucks to bye a couple more weeks. Thanks Kevin and Mike! I need to know how long you all want it reserved and if we are going past a couple more weeks I need more money. It costs 15/night for the gym! I need to get ahold of Gay Monday so I need input ASAP! Thanks!
[03/07/18] I will not be at ball tonight! I was asked by the janitorial staff if we would make sure the balls are put away and all of the light, including the commons area are off! They will not be there tonight. If you guys could help with that since I won’t be there, I’d appreciate it!
[02/14/18] Will we have enough tomorrow?
[02/07/18] I most likely will not make it tonight. For those of you that do make it, please talk to each other and determine if we will have enough next week since it is Valentine’s Day! I’m not going to piss the wife off if nobody else plans on it! Thanks!
[12/26/17] Ball will be played in Petersburg and Cedar tomorrow night. In cedar we will play at 630. Please spread the word, no ball in Albion!
[11/22/17] Just a reminder to those who have not paid yet. $2 per night or $/20 for the season. There will be a yellow envelope with a sheet to mark paid on. It will be by the gyms northeast door.
[10/31/17] Just a reminder...ball starts next Wednesday November 8th! Pass the word around! We will be in the new gym!
[09/18/17] Men's league basketball is scheduled to start on November 8th and will run through March 14th. We will utilize the new gym and enter in the east side of the building. We are unable to use the gym on December 27th. Leauge fees will be 20/ for the season or 2/night. There is one night when they have pt conferences that they will advise on use of the gym at a later date!
[02/22/17] Leaving at 6 if anyone needs a ride
[02/22/17] Anybody wanting to car pool to cedar tomorrow? Would like to leave by 6.
[02/17/17] Since Albion's gym is taken next Wednesday we will play in Cedar Rapids. We have the gym from 630 on!
[02/14/17] Anybody else interested in playing in central city tomorrow?
FYI. No bball for two weeks. Spread the word.
Josh my name is Marcus Donner, AD here at Boone Central schools. Theresa Knust said you were the guy to talk to about men's basketball. Unfortunately the next two weeks the gyms will not be available. This Wednesday is PT conference and next we will be hosting a town hall sort of meeting and discussion that is being televised by NCN (News Channel Nebraska). Sarah Bird has more information on the event by setup time would be starting at around 6:00 with recording set to begin at 7. Just wanted to give you a heads up so you can contact your guys and let them know
[01/25/17] I got confirmation that gym will be open tonight!
