Important Information for Everyone
Who Drives to the Barr Homes Soccerplex
Please make sure all of your team and your supporters are aware of these important considerations for using the gravel access road that leads to the Barr Homes soccer fields. It’s called Gun Road, and we built it.
- Watch carefully for the Gun Road intersection with County Rd #6/Wilton Rd.
If you miss the turn, use common sense and courtesy if you use someone’s driveway to turn around. There have been incidents when inconsiderate numbskulls have significantly disturbed residential driveways after having driven past the Gun Rd turn.
- Do not drive down the middle of Gun Road!
Far too many drivers are driving the middle of the road. This is causing excessive wear and is prematurely destroying our access road. (In Canada, you should drive on the right-hand side of the road.)
- Obey a 30 km/h speed limit on Gun Road.
Speeds higher than that are dangerous for the poor road conditions. Higher speeds are also churning up an excessive amount of dust that have our neighbours justifiably complaining.
Regular Season Full Schedule On-line
The full 2012 outdoor season is now on-line.
The tentative playoff schedule will soon be on-line as well. This year, the playoff rounds are scheduled to start on Aug-20 and to finish on Aug-29.
Partial Schedule On-line
The first three weeks of the 2012 outdoor season are now on-line. Team representatives should also have received this much of the schedule by email; if that has not happened, notify statistician and assistant scheduler Alex right away.
Note that team information, including uniforms, is not yet up-to-date for 2012. Some of the information will be missing, and some of it will be old information from last year. Before too long it should be correct for the 2012 season, but as always, feel free to point out any corrections by sending an email to webmaster Bill.
2011-12 team name changes
As happens each season, there are some new teams and some teams that change names. This is intended to be a short listing of each.
- Vita Inter SC is now known as FC Vita Azzurri.
- Napanee FCC is now known as Napanee FC I.
- KPFC is now known as Overtime FC.
- Napanee FC is now known as Napanee FC II.
- Brandees SC is now known as AIC.

The above schedule is final and will not change, however, teams are able to trade field work days as long as proper notification is provided to Philip Benevides (GKSSA Vice President) at least one week in advance of their scheduled work day.
A reminder email will be sent to team representatives in advance of their scheduled work day. Within one week of that, teams must confirm one of the following:
- attending their field work day with at least four players
- paying the $300 + HST charge instead of doing field work
- they have agreed to trade their work day with another team
Questions and correspondence about a team’s obligatory field work days, including all confirmations of intent and work day trades, should be addressed to Philip.
