This week the University of Victoria rolled out a new process to deal with field closures and weather cancellations. They will be updating a page on their website for everyone to see. This eliminates the mass amount of communication for third-party groups and everyone can check the field status from home on their own similar to how the soccer groups do it.

The link is: http://vikesrec.ca/fields

Note: When the fields are closed by the University this is not up for discussion or debate.
