Cumberland's U14G division 2 team (Coryn's team) beat Saco again, dominating most of the game and winning the finals!

Cumberland's U14G division 1 team (Ari's team) beat the other Saco team then faced Gorham in the finals. Gorham beat PAYSA 6-2 in their semifinal and was considered by all to be the heavy favorite for the win -- and the overall win at the State Cup level when all is said and done. The final went 1-1 through over time and into sudden death where at the last minute Gorham scored, ending the game. Gorham was heavily favored and every single girl on the Cumberland team stepped up their game. Ari managed to shut down Kirsten (fear and dread by defenders) and played about 10 times the game I've ever seen her play. She was controlled, on target, and carried the ball several times. It was all beautiful to watch. They walked away second in the tournament and quite pleased at the outcome.

I had a great time. Of course, Maine weather this time of year being what it is, Friday was near 80 and hot. Saturday was mid seventies and hot. Today was misty and in the 50's. We're all tired -- some of us old people just from watching.

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......

It would be wonderful to see them spread widely and eventually become the basis for something to rally around and become legislation. Update: 3/3/2018 I added #7, increasing the age to purchase.
