Growler Registration, St Baldricks and NEXT YEAR teams

2014 Team Registration-  Deadline for captains to submit Team Registration Forms is July 11th.  You can tweak your rosters up until the opening night, but this will guarantee your shirt order.  The registration form can be found at >>>   http://growlervolleyball.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2014-Team-Registration-Form.xlsx   

 It must be emailed to me as an attachment in an MS Excel format.
Please tell your captain what shirt color and size you want.   Registration is $40 per player..(includes shirt, 4 nights of food and beer).  Pay your captain.  The captain will be responsible for sending me ONE check from the team.  (OR I’m working on an online payment form..  more info to come on that)
Shirt Choices this year:
Black- Full cut-  100% Cotton
Charcoal Heather Grey- Athletic trim cut-  ring spun blend (you may want to order a size up)
Kelly Heather Green- Athletic trim cut-  ring spun blend (you may want to order a size up)

St Baldrick’s Foundation-  Each Captain must also Create a Team on our St. Baldrick’s site >>  http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/growlervolleyball    Please hound your captain if they don’t..   I encourage each of you to register a personal campaign under your team site.   Total Team and Individual earnings will reward you with prizes and final night seedings.  Please check your employer’s benefits policies to to see if they will match your donations.
NEXT YEAR TEAMS-  This year’s team earnings may also determine your eligibility to play next year.   We are capped out at 32 TEAMS..  We WILL NOT go over 32 TEAMS next year.    The problem is that I will have more requests from new club members(of all clubs) to enter a team every year..  Since this is a benefit for St Baldrick’s, you will need to PAY to PLAY..  OR DO SOME WORK to earn donations or acquire sponsors.  I don’t know what those rules will be yet for next year.  But if your team doesn’t make an effort this year, you may find yourself spectating next year.  The Growler “INVITATIONAL” Beach Volleyball Tournament will take on a new meaning.
Sponsors-  We’ve done a tremendous job picking up new sponsors this year, however we would still like to pick up a few more Restaurants.
