Hello to all of our flyers, spectators, and friends!

Hope you are all staying safe!

Unfortunately,  Vista View Park is not open as of yet for Group Gatherings of any kind.

We checked in with the Park and even though Vista View Park is open, Broward County is still limiting all Park usage for single person activities only such as walking and playing sports on your own.

We will keep in touch with our Email Subscribers of when it will be safe to head out to the Field again.

If anything,  this is a great time to get back to building new kits and homebrews.

Our best to all of you and your families and friends.

 

Here is the CDC link for more information on how to stay safe.
