Email Issues

For emergency notifications, like game cancelations, we:

  1. Posted a notice on the homepage of our website
  2. Posted it on Facebook
  3. Tweeted it (on Twitter)
  4. Sent out a mass email
  5. Sent out a mass text

If you did not receive that mass email, here are a few things that might be going on:

  1. You might have misspelled your email address – log back in to Blue Sombrero and verify that the email address is correct
  2. You might have accidentally unsubscribed – there is that unsubscribe link at the bottom of every mass email.  If you clicked it, even by accident, that email address will NEVER receive another email from Blue Sombrero.  Log back in to your account and put in a different email address.
  3. If you have your email account set up on more than one device (your smartphone, your Outlook at work, your tablet, etc) the mail program on one of the devices could be configured to download the email from the server to the first device and then it’s not available on any other.
  4. If you have your work email your employer could have the firewall on their server configured to block or “blacklist” our emails
  5. Comcast.net seems to be particularly hard on our mass emails.  They block to some, but not all emails.

If none of this applies to you and you’re still not receiving our emails, try a different email address.  I know AT&T gives you 10 free accounts, gmail is also free (and they rarely give me trouble).  Please consider utilizing all our outlets to be sure that you hear about everything as quickly as possible.

Check out the 9 Mile Field

New backstop installed on the Nine Mile Field

New backstop installed on the Nine Mile Field

If you’ve ever driven down Nine Mile Road between Dixboro and Pontiac Trail when a baseball games has been in progress, you know you cross your fingers and hope a foul ball doesn’t fly over the fence and hit your car.  Well, your South Lyon Junior League is changing that.  We’ve installed a backstop that is 20′ tall with overhang.  The 9 Mile side of the fence is 16′ tall with overhang and the parking lot side is 6 ft. tall.

In addition to the possibility of hitting vehicles, we’ve also worried that a foul ball might be just too much temptation for one of our kids to chase after.  This much-needed field improvement will make this field safer for everybody.

School Superintendent Thanks SLJL for Its Support

In a letter to the South Lyon Junior League, Dr. William Pearson, Superintendent of South Lyon Community Schools, writes:

On behalf of the South Lyon Community Schools Board of Education, I would like to thank South Lyon Junior League for its support of public schools and our district in particular.  The generous gift of the replacement and upgrading of the backstop fencing for the baseball/softball field next to Nine Mile Road at Millennium Middle School is greatly appreciated.  This is a gift that will be enjoyed by many students and community members during and after the school day for many years to come.  Again, we so appreciate your partnership with our schools, and please share our sincere gratitude with the rest of your board members and families.

You are very welcome!!
