GLLSOW will be marching in the Memorial Day Parade this year!
Coach Scott has secured us a spot in the Memorial Day Parade this year!
We will be receiving more info tonight or tomorrow morning and I will send an update as soon as I know more.
In the mean time, save the date.
This is an opportunity to get our name out there and try to grow our league, so lets get as many players as possible to march!
Sorry for the delay getting this online, but I would say Opening Day was a terrific success. Everyone seemed to have a good time and all the feedback I've received was very positive.
I'd like to send out some "Thank You"s to everyone who helped make the day so much fun.
I'll start with Mother Nature, who scheduled the nicest day in the last couple of weeks for Opening Day.
Next, I'll send a big "Thank You" to our neighbors from Meriden Little League softball, who always seem to be there when we need them.
We can't go any further without recognizing our Volunteers. Thank You for setting up the fields, running Concessions and Apparel, Umpiring and cleaning up afterwards.
Thank You to Mayor Dickinson, for helping to kick-off our 2015 softball season.
Finally, and most importantly, THANK YOU to all of our Coaches, Players, Parents, Family and Friends who turned the day into and experience for all of us!
I'd also like to say, if anyone took pictures that they'd like to share on the website, you can email them to me at email@example.com and i will post them. I took a couple and I've received a few already.
If you haven't already received a phone call from me (Kim Math, here), you will on Wednesday (May 13). This weekend, May 14 -17 is our Girls' Rule Tournament, and we can't make this a success without your help.
We will be running 3 concessions stands and doing field maintenance throughout the tournament. We are asking that league families volunteer in some capacity for 2-4 hours over the four day span doing either of these tasks. We now have the schedules and are able to schedule around (or if you prefer, coinciding with) your daughter(s') games. It's actually pretty easy and fun; even working the grill isn't as daunting as some may think!
Time slots are available in 2 - 2 1/2 hour increments starting at 5:00 pm on Thursday and Friday and 7 am on Saturday and Sunday. Any time you can give is greatly appreciated. This is also a great opportunity for older girls and siblings to earn community service hours. And younger girls are welcome to work in concessions or as runners during your time slot.
PLEASE DON'T WAIT FOR ME TO CALL YOU (BUT I WILL CONFESS, I AIN'T TOO PROUD TO BEG). PLEASE EMAIL ME (MATHFAMILY@SBCGLOBAL.NET) OR CALL ME AT 203-949-9605 - let me know your availability.
Time slots are available for all days, but let's fill up Thursday first! 5-7 or 7-9!
Thanks in advance!
By the way, don't forget that we are also combining this with a food drive for the Connecticut Food Pantry. Every girl is encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item as a donation!
Thursday night (May 14th), we will open our 2015 Girls Rule Tournament. The games will run Thursday night, Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday.
If you can volunteer some time to set up, work concessions or apparel, do field maintenance between games, umpire or clean up afterwards, the help will be greatly appreciated. You can contact Kim Math at: firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and it's a big undertaking. We have around 60 teams come to Pragemann Park to play 3 games each over the 4 days.
