SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE
WHO CAME TO HELP AT OUR
Optimist Park Work Day
Our Joint Work Day at the park with the Weddington Optimist Club this past Saturday was very successful! Together we cleaned out 15+ years of accumulated “stuff” from the garage attached to the picnic shelter and just about filled a 20 yard dumpster with all the trash, broken stuff, etc. We also found some other hidden treasures that we can now put to good use.
In addition to board members, we had 10 to 15 families who showed up to help! We had a few help us with the garage and put the rest to work all over the park picking up trash, especially all the little stuff that gets overlooked! It was heartwarming to see all these families show up with smiles at 8 AM and say “what can I do – just put me to work”.
Thanks to all the hard work we accomplished a lot in two hours!
Dear WCWAA families:
WCWAA is your community athletic association.
We exist to serve your family.
Now that the floodplain remediation has come to a close and NC DOT has announced the path for the Hwy 84 widening project, our Board would like to turn our focus in 2017 to improving Optimist Park.
Our first phase is Facilities Improvement beginning December 2016. We ask that you consider an investment in our community and Optimist park.

WCWAA Parents, Players, Coaches, Umpires and spectators;
Because of the high incidence of severe lightning storms in our area of North Carolina, the Wesley Chapel-Weddington Athletic Association (WCWAA) has installed a “Lightning Prediction and Warning System”. The unit is mounted to the roof of the Babe Ruth baseball field scorebox. This system is manufactured by Thor-Guard Inc. and similar systems are installed in golf courses, parks and stadium. The system continuously monitors the atmosphere’s electrostatic energy as far away as 15 miles and evaluates the potential for lightning within an area of approximately 2 miles in radius.
When the system determines a hazardous condition, the air-horns and strobe light provide alerts. A single 15 second long blast from the horn will signal suspension of ALL activities at Optimist Park. An intense strobe light will begin flashing and remain flashing until safe conditions occur. When this happens EVERYONE should immediately go their car or a safe building. No one should remain on the field or in a dugout!
The system will continue to monitor the storm and track it as it moves away. When conditions are safe, you will hear three short 5 second long blasts from the horn and the light will stop flashing.
1.This system has many adjustments. The detection range is currently set to the “default” This may mean that initially, the horn could sound too early or too late. We will fine tune the system after the first few storms. But, DO NOT ignore the warnings!
2.Coaches. When the horn sounds you must immediately stop all activities and send your players to their cars or a building. Do not stay in the dugout. Failure to follow these rules will result in a suspension of coaching privileges.
WCWAA setting the standard for safety of our members.
