That’s another great piece of work Joe. Some funny stories (particularly the disappearing stands!) alongside points that get you thinking about the lessons that could be learned from Jeff’s venutres.

Great article. What happened there isn’t actually much different from what happens in small towns in the states with baseball and softball leagues.

A lot of similarities.
