If you do not show up at all, then you are automatically done for the rest of the season.  I realize things happen, but there are lots of people depending on you!  Make sure in advance that you have you have everything planned properly.  Also, I know some of you ref other places on the same day.  Just make sure you do not sign up for games without more than enough time to get here on time.
