3rd Annual Charity Softball Tournament

We are thrilled to announce our next WACKY event - the 3rd Annual Charity Softball Tournament to be held on September 10th & 11th (during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month). Salt Lake County Parks & Rec have generously donated 12 fields so the number of teams that can play have TRIPLED! It is going to be a blast!

In addition to traditional ASA tournament play for 10u, 12u, 14u & 16u girls, we will be hosting the skills contest again this year on the 10th. We will have a raffle and Nick has challenged his sister, Carly, to a co-ed, slow-pitch game - also on the 10th. All attendees (excluding players and umpires) are encourage to dress WACKY!

Please visit or for flyers and registration information. Or, feel free to email me:

I am shamelessly asking our readers to help us find prizes to be donated for our raffle, the winners of the 4 different age brackets and the winners of the skills contest. I also could use anyone's connections with fundraiser ideas - headbands, wristbands, etc. We have been given permission to sell our own merchandise on the fields and we want to take full advantage of this great money-making opportunity.

Of a special note, we acknowledge there are many children in our area that have been affected by cancer. If you know of any child and their family that would like to be our honorary guest at this tournament, please contact me. Nick's charities supports CureSearch, which does research for ALL children's cancers.

Nick is still doing terrific! Love to all,
