7/6 Update

TEAMS____We have 24 teams confirmed and few more pending.  I’ve had a chance to work on the schedule and brackets.  We’ll need to cap it to 25 teams..  (7 more teams than last year)

Every team will still get to play 3 to 4 games every night.  But we’ll need to add 3 games at 5:30 the first night.  We’re adding a 5th court in our soccer field.  It’ll be a temporary sand court for the month of August..  Thanks to Eastern Turf Maintenance for re-distributing the sand and aerating it into our soccer field when the Growler is over.

Also thanks to Lake Park, Greystone and Crabtree for hosting both nights 2 and 3..  Without these extra courts, we would not be able to make a 25 team bracket work.

TEAM REGISTRATION___   Next Friday, July 13th, will be the deadline for Rosters and T-shirt orders.  I need to get a firm count on what to print up.  This year’s design will be a Margarittaville style design..  Shirt Colors will be Tangerine Orange, blue/teal, Violet/lavender, and White..   I’ll try to get you some color samples by Monday.  Registration form attached.  Registration will be $30 per player this year.  Not a bad deal for 4 nights of food, drink and a t-shirt…. and proceeds go to St. Baldricks.   Money will be collected on Opening night.  One check per team from the team captain, made out to Springdale Area Recreation Club.   Or you can send it earlier to me..  7509 Glenharden Dr, Raleigh, NC 27613

FOOD____  PF Changs and Carolina Ale House will be with us again this year along with 2 new food sponsors, Lynnwood Grill and Sparion.  I may still be looking for subs or pizza…   There should be plenty of food.  I’ll be asking for a $7 donation for food and drink this year.

BEER____ I’m currently in conversations with both Mims (Miller) and Jeffreys (Bud) distributors to work out what they can do for us..  More to come, but expect to see a big trailer caddie for nights 1 and 4.

St Baldricks____Start planning your personal fund raising campaign.  I want to see more shaved heads this year at our Aug 21 finally.  We’ll have incentives for the team and individual that earns the most for St Baldricks..   I would like to see us make over $10,000 this year.

Sponsorship___   I need to get commitments by Monday July 16th to get logos on t-shirts and banners..  If you are working on a corp. sponsor, let me know..   Flier attached.

VOLUNTEERS____  I need help to pull off this enormous event. 

I’ll need help each Tuesday afternoon to set up and pick up food, ice and beer.

We also set up tents and grass courts the Sat before and stuff Registration bags the Mon night before Opening night.

And I’ll need help each night.

Please sign up to help.  Look for the tabs at the bottom of the workbook for each date.


See ya at Springdale Beach on Opening Night..  July 31st
