HELP CJ JONES AND FAMILY AFTER FIRE
Friday morning February 3rd, CJ and Christa lost their home and all of their belongings to a fire. Thankfully, CJ, Christa and their two sons Calder (4) and Cade (2) were not in the house when the fire erupted and are all safe. They recently sold their home in Grand Rapids and were living in a temporary location on their property in SandLake while they saved to build their forever home. Insurance had not yet been established on the temporary home so the loss is even more devastating. With two little ones, the challenges of such a significant loss will be overwhelming. These next few weeks are going to be tough as they try to navigate starting over. If you are able to help, any and all monetary donations would be sincerely appreciated. Let's help this beautiful family rebuild their lives! You can donate via gofundme by clicking HERE, or you can Venmo CJ directly at CjJones9 or CashApp CJ directly at $jones2cg Every bit helps.

NEW SCHEDULE PAGE NOW LIVE ON WEBSITE AND APP
A fresh and new look is now showing on the Phantom schedule pages on both the website and our new app. The new format is much more modern looking that our old style and the new look comes with an intergraded system that pairs the app and the website together which can be updated via our manager's smart phone or laptop/desktop. For users, the system allows players and fans to 'RSVP' for the event which will allow users to add the event right to their own calendars and receive automatic notifications from the team in terms of game time changes and reminders of an upcoming game. Both systems, the web/mobile version and the App will automatically put the most current game up front. Past or played games will be located at the bottom of the section and we will add the final score and goal scores of that game once completed. (feature available for Locomotive and Phantom teams). If you are using the App, you can access the Phantom, Locomotives and Zombies schedules. Additionally, if you are using the Phantom App, you can visit the 'Discussion' page located in each game's event and add your own comments to the discussion for that game or event. For the Phantoms and Locomotive teams, the beer schedule can also be found by hovering or clicking on each individual game. Do you have family or friends in from out of out?
