LAST WEEK: I would like to personally thank everyone in the league who played last week in helping our four (4) outside teams feel very welcome at Bartlett. I think this is the most outside teams we have had at once come visit!

There are some special shout outs Machonne Williams Executive VP of everything wanted me to pass on.


Thank you too:

·         Matthew Williams for singing our National Anthem (even with a chest cold)

·         Tina Kennedy and Judy Laprairie for taking over the leads with the Game Day Coordinator

·         Mary Mestas  and Stacey Hayes for announcing our 4pm game

·         Amy Cotter, Pat LaVoie, Tina Kennedy, Judy LaPrairie as servers

·         Jen Fergus for getting the lactose free ice cream and an ice cream scoop!

·         Phil Cotter running with my credit card…to get more toppings! ----note from Paul…Phil please return the card and I think we need to discuss all the power tools you purchased as well (just saying) <smile>.

·         Tina Kennedy and Judy Laprairie once again taking lead as Game Day Coordinator 6 p.m.

·         Matthew Williams for singing the National Anthem

·         Geoffery Boston and Matthew Williams for announcing our 6p.m. game

A big THANK YOU to Culver’s of Schaumburg  1800 Wise Road Schaumburg, IL 60193 for donating our Ice Cream. Stop in to see them!!


THIS WEEK: As of right now we are short buddy teams, and possibly for the rest of the season. The bad weather has forced our outside groups that help us out at the end of the year to be unavailable because of trying to make up games. Please be patient with us as we work on this situation .


We will have a special guest this week Mr. Daniel Smrokowski will be doing a podcast of his show Special Chronicles at this Saturday’s game. He will be there before we start and after. If you would like to meet Daniel, see what his doing and possibly be interviewed please contact Machonne so we can organize this.
