Field Closures
If you get to a field and it is closed, the club closes it or you close it, if it is before the game starts you collect half of the game fees from each coach, that they are obligated to pay. That means you will get half of the total fee.  Coaches are NOT allowed to give you the whole fee.
      If the field is closed for the first game of 2 or more games, or the field is closed for all games, you are to get half fee for the first game ONLY.
This has been handled this way for years and only the league can change it.
SO  if anyone received more money then they should have the first week or any future weeks You must send to the York USA office the fees you are not entitled too. Stating what game and what team(s) gave you what monies.

On the other hand if it is a CPYSL game you collect no money, and send in a game report to get your half fee, by the league,  Include addresses of your crew on your game report.
