Two well plated and intense playoff games played in the spirit of good sportsmanship. Walter Scott from the union paper and took some great shots which we are hoping he will send to us and we will post a special page on the website for players to view and look back on. The GVBL wishes to thank all of the players involved and are very grateful to all the team sponsors who donated to make this a great summer event and many more to come. It is now the final four so hopefdully all will come out to support friends on any of the teams involved, so we can really finish with a big bang. Lucking forward to whoever goes to the Grand Final 3 games series

EL CLASSICO - Moule Paint & Glass v Beach Hut Deli what a finish to the end of the regular season 2 teams fighting for the final spot in the playoffs. Whatever team wins the other goes fishing, but if Moule Paint & Glass win they go into playoffs due to better record, but if Beach Hut Deli win they go into playoffs based on head to head win over Moule Paint & Glass. So a lot to play for on just a one off game. This is a game everyone in the league should come and watch, sure going to be tension in the house, pressure steaming from the benches, nerves jangling, and of course the time keeper and scorekeeper sitting on the edge of there seats. what more could we ask for on a Sunday evening, other than the Kings winning the NBA hahaha....! So mark your calender, oh a by the way Waste Management v Wells Fargo has a little game too..... Go PolarBears.

We have now officially began a new 35 & over open gym. it will begin on Tuesday August 14th, 6.30pm -10pm. This has been previously discussed and now it has become reality, a lot of discussion between GVBL members requested that this format and eventual over 35 league be established. This opens a much bigger door for the growth of the league, allowing to run 2 separate leagues at the same time.

OPEN GYM ON TUESDAY JULY 24TH START TIME AFTER MAKE UP GAME WITH INDIVISUAL GRAPHICS v MOULE PAINT & GLASS

League so far......! In general this being the first GVBL league the feed back is positive, particularly the player stats which has introduced a new element to league play. Showing the progress of team play and individual play, who is improving in certain areas or not. The exposure we are getting from the Union sports writer Walter Scott who has produced twice weekly updates for us highlighting teams and players and of course our Sponsors. The playoff format will definitely stir the emotions with them being 3 game series, hopefully we will fill the bleachers and get the whole town excited. Of course there is the most difficult job of all refereeing something that will bring about a debate on any court. There are always going to be decisions that are not agreed upon by different parties but at the end of all the talking it is something we all know can be improved upon. But it cannot be if we do not have personnal to fill the need to improve, so why not try just 1 game the GVBL will provide the black & white stripes, a small price to pay to experience the other side of life and decision making. Future leagues will only improve with participation so the GVBL has only one message we are here to stay and prove that Grass Valley can be a place where Fair Play and fun can be had by one and all.

ALL TEAM CAPTAINS; It is your responsibilty as captain to maintain that a minimum of 5 players turn up for schedule games. In general it has been good, but on a couple of occasions teams have only 4 players rostered to play, this is against league rules. In future if teams show up at gametime with less than 5 players the game will be FORFIETED. This is why Lee Stafford expressed to all teams befre the league started that a minimum of 8 rostered players are required. This is a GVBL rule that is actually beneficial to all teams. NB. They don't show up at NBA games with 4 players.......!

SPORTSMANSHIP CONDUCT a simple term of respect, admiration, and professional. who doesn't want to represent and show they have these qualities. Well everyone who plays in the GVBL leagues possess just these qualities. All players want to show this before, during, and after games. It's not only demonstrated fromplayer to player but just as important the GVBL itself. The organization is working very hard to provide the best league, with good officiating, and a fair play league. So the GVBL wishes to thank all the players, officials, scorekeepers, in continuing the sportsmanship conduct code which we are all very proud of.

These times are subject to change depending on if a series only goes to 2 games this will benefit all the players as this will allow for additional open gym time.

We had a visit from The Union newspaper sports writer Walter Ford he spoke with Steve Matthews & Lee Stafford about the league and also to some of the players. He took some game shots and will be running an article on Friday June 8th in the paper so watch for this article. We are truly the talk of the town and it would not be for all the players and managemant of the GVBL.
