East Sunshine Location

Stay tuned for an update from Wayne Bushnell. This fundraiser will involve delivering entree's to tables and getting drink re-fills. We will have an opportunity for tips as well.


Lance will be sending out periodic instructions on hotel reservations for our trips.

The first reservation you need to take care of is the Memorial Day Dual Super NIT in Kansas City. It looks like just two (2) families need to take care of this.

Fall Ball

Fall 2016: There will be a minimum of two (2) tournament weekends required. Most likely the fall tournaments would be at the end of August and one in September. These dates WILL Be set once fall schedules are published by USSSA.

Signage Sales at GC Field

Our team needs to sell two (2) signs at GC Field. The sponsorship of the signage is $500 and includes production and design. We use a similar design (as show picture right) for all signs at the field. The sign will be up at the field from March through October.

We have a renewal of Marshfield Chevrolet that Wayne Bushnell will be working. But, we have one (1) more sign for sure our team needs to sell.

The sale of the signage, after production costs, will result in 50% of the funds going to our team budget and 50% going to the field improvement fund for facility and equipment needs. We will be purchasing $1,200 of top dressing for the field in February and the funds from signage will go toward this field maintenance project.

If you would please assist in identifying and selling this sign.
