6/27/2020 Virus Update
I hope you and your families are safe and healthy.

We are continuing with the County guidleines and are in phase 3

At the latest Carlsbad City council meeting, we are slowly starting to cautiously open. That being said, cases are on the rise. The city has just asked the state for guidance on opening team sports.

Since no decision has officially been made for team sports, we will not be playing yet.

Our annual 4th of July event is cancelled, as are most 4th of July events across the county.

When we come back, we will be back at Stagecoach Park, as the fields are done!

At the appropriate time, the officers and commissioners will discuss how to handle scheduling for the remainder of the summer softball season, 4th of July, and the upcoming winter football and softball seasons.

We will continue to monitor the situation with the City of Carlsbad and the County of San Diego.

Stay safe, keep your distance, wash your hands and wear your masks!

Rachel Wright, the La Costa Canyon High School softball coach, was thrown a curve ball the day after Easter. A brain tumor rocked her world and knocked her down, but not out.  See the article by LC35 member, sportswriter and author Jay Paris about Rachel and how LC35 reached out to her to help.  If you want to donate to help Rachel, Encinitas?

Long time LC35 member Alan Fischer has written a powerful and impactful story of his combat experiences as an A6 Intruder pilot in Vietnam. “The Death Mist” addresses trust, faith, teamwork, and dedication. Like Pat and Tommy’s books, it can also be bought on Amazon.

Longtime LC35 members Pat Steele and Tom Stern have each written a book.  Pat?s novel, Scorpion Bay  is an action-adventure fiction novel about struggle, turmoil, drug addiction, redemption, and success that is partly set in Mexico.   Tom?s book, Just Lucky I Guess, is a series of short story adventures based on his life.  Both are available on Amazon.

LC35 member Rob Holzman was recently honored as “Volunteer of the Year” by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad!

He was presented the award at the North County Philanthropy Council’s annual luncheon. Way to go Rob!
