Dateline:  January 21, 2021
Games This Week
This week has been somewhat hectic. Dewayne explained very well in the GroupMe text message concerning the Westake cancellations. If you purchased tickets, you will be reimbursed.

The ACS gym became unavailable due to an unexpected event that superseded our need. David Barton's mother passed away this week and they will be holding a celebration of life for Mrs. Rose Barton on Friday at the gym.

The Friday games as specified in the GroupMe text messages will be held at Victory Baptist Church (1311 E Bankhead Dr, Weatherford, TX 76086) Family Life Center starting at 5:00 with the JV Boys hosting THESA. Signs will direct the fans and players to enter through the canopy (Ft Worth Hiway) side of the building. The admission table will be set up there. COVID guidelines are the same as we have at ACS (spectators requested to wear masks; officials, players, coaches, score table personnel are exempt during game).

The Varsity Girls and Boys will travel to Terrell on Saturday to play in the 1st Annual James Cato Memorial Tournament.

We (I) have been very lax in enforcing the need for physicals for the players this season. Fortunately, we have not had any claims against our insurance (requires physical to file claim). Dr. Hood will be at practice on 3 Feb to conduct the requisite physical if your student has not had a one. This is not an intrusive examination. The Express form is located on the web site under the About Us/PDF Forms tab. I will make sure we have a stack of forms at practice. You may use your primary care physician (PCP) form if you use your PCP.

Red River District Tournament
Sorry for the hodgepodge of information sharing about this tournament. Hopefully this will provide the answers you need. The Red River District Tournament will be played entirely at the FieldhouseUSA facility in Mansfield, TX. The date of the action is January 29 and 30 (Friday and Saturday next week). You will need a pass to get in. They are limiting passes to 2 per registered player. I have requested 82 passes. Each pass is a tournament pass, meaning that it is good for both days. Entrance to the facility is based on the allowable occupancy.  I hope to have the passes by Wednesday next week. The cost of each pass is $10. You will need to pay (cash or check) for each pass at that time.

COVID Guidelines: Will send on Sunday Weekly Confirmation

Player registration: Parents should register their players on the NCHC web site ( ) for the Red River District and the Big South Regional (Varsity parents should also select Nationals as well).

Big South Regional Hotel Information
Please contact Heather Lampe regarding hotel information for the Big South Tournament in Frisco, TX..

Other Items of Interest
Senior Night is slated for February 19. We will recognize our Seniors between the JV and varsity boys games versus Stephenville Faith. To that end, I  will need a list of Seniors NLT Monday, January 25 in order to get the Senior gifts in time.

Banquet is tentatively set for April 9. Stay tuned for further details.

I want to personally THANK YOU ALL for your perseverance, flexibility, and availability. You are what make this organization flourish and shine. God bless each of you, stay healthy, and GO EXPRESS!!
