Dear Challenger Players and Buddies -

Just wanted to share the latest and greatest about the Challenger Jamboree!

As you probably have heard, the Challenger Jamboree will take place on September 7th and 8th at Tri-Cities Little League.  This is our first ever District 13 event centered around Challenger kids and their families.    I am truly excited about the two days, and it should be a ton of fun time for all involved.    I just wanted to preview the two days so everyone knows what to expect.

Friday Night - September 7th -  6 PM -9 PM - This will be a held the Tri-Cities Randall Oaks facility.    We will have optional baseball instruction going on at our four fields from 6 - 7.  Each field will have a station - hitting, pitching, fielding and base running.  Kind of casual to get back into a baseball mind.    At 7PM, we will begin pickups for our hayride at our fields.    Pickups will run approximately every 15 minutes.  After the hayride is over, you are all welcome to stay.  The park district has provided multiple shelters for cooking hotdogs and marshmallows.    You can stay as long as you like (up to 9PM).  Hayrides will transport you back to the fields after you are done.

Saturday -  September 8th - 9AM to 5PM - (Don't get scared, you do not have to stay all day).  Again, this will be at our Randall Oaks facility.  We will start with an opening ceremony, then play baseball.  We will work on a schedule once we have a team count.  Everyone will get 1 or 2 games.  In addition, there will be multiple activities going on during the day.  We are putting together a craft/game area with things like face painting, speed gun, etc.  For those interested in golf, the golf course next store has opened their doors to us.  There is a four hole handicap accessible golf course that is open for us, free of charge for that day.  If you want to try golf, this is a great opportunity.  The Randall Oaks petting zoo will also be open for all Challenger participants in a uniform.  It is a small zoo, but a lot of fun.  This is also on our campus.  Of course will have food & refreshments available for the day.

We have a lot more details to work, but those are the basics.    So, what is next?

1.      If you are interested in participating, see your Challenger coordination - Donna, Rochelle or Paul.  They are coordinating sign-ups for both players and buddies.
2.      If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mark Anders -
3.      If you know of sponsors or are willing to donate, please contact Mark Johnson

 You have my guarantee, 100% of the proceeds will go back to the kids.  Donations will help fund trophies, prizes for the kids, tents for shelter and food for the bonfire.

Attached is the flyer and sponsor package.
