Sometimes I masturbate with my left hand. Why??? Because it's different. Variety is the spice of life. Who cares if there are 60 or 16 at a game? I've done both and at each game I've had a great time.
In the last year (the time I've been playing). I've only seen one game cancelled due to lack of players. The reason I think was because it was in the winter.
Southern Ontario is rather large and has a diverse mix of players. Not every game will meet these players needs or desires. We in southern Ontario are blessed to have several excellent teams and hosts who put on regular games at several fields to meet these different personal requirements. I don't think we should be viewing it as a bad thing if you get low attendance at a certain event. It just means the people willing to commit to playing that day had something different in mind than what was offered at one place instead of another.
But what do I know? I'm just some guy who plays. I've never tried to host or organize a game. Untill I do I'll stop talking......er?....typing.......you know what I mean damn-it.....
