    You are lucky. Have lost plenty of games in plenty of years due to extreme weather in Chilliwack.

    Lucky how? No league in BC should be scheduling (outdoor) soccer games for Nov-Jan.

    In my 10 -11 years since moving here from England , this has been the worst winter in terms of fields being closed. The snow has always melted away pretty quick in the past .
    All the fields @ Newton Athletic Park are covered in a very thick covering of ice/snow . IMG_3801.JPG IMG_7839.JPG IMG_7847.JPG thick covering of ice/snow .

    We get these types of issues about every 10-15ish years - except in 96 and 98! (way more snow those years than this). A couple years ago it was brutal cold but not snow as much.

    Not that it matters, but about 20 years ago it snowed in March and April.

    I've had games cancelled due to snow,rain, frozen fields . I can't recall there ever being a period were I couldn't even get a training session in for 6 straight weeks. This is unusual to say the least.

    Good news it looks to warm up the after this weekend

    4d cancelled all weekends games. Maybe my initial restart quote of Jan 28 might be true. Though I think next Saturday will be the weekend with all the rain coming. Question is how many fields will be flooded?

    SSAP is closed all weekend. Richmond is still closed as well (no snow, but frozen turf).

    Ladner and Tsawwassen's turf fields are open. All the grass is closed, as it's mostly frozen solid.
