05/31/12 276 W - + 8 - 6 Second Annual Garner Softball Tournament, Saturday, August 4

Our friends at the Garner Fire Department pass along this announcement:

The second annual Garner Fire Rescue Softball Tournament has been scheduled! It will be held on Saturday, August 4, 2012, at Clayton Recreation Park. This is the same location as last year. All proceeds from this year's event will go to the construction of the Garner Veterans Memorial to be constructed in Lake Benson Park in Garner. The memorial will honor servicemen and servicewomen from the Garner area who've served in armed conflicts.

Our tournament last year was a great success and we hope to build on that. Last year, six teams participated. Our goal is to double that amount to twelve teams. The entry fee is again $200 per team. Each team may be comprised of up to two different public safety agencies and credentials are subject to be checked. As this is a public safety charity tournament, and we would like only public safety personnel to participate in teams.

Teams may be co-ed but we will play by male rules. Softballs will be provided by Garner Fire Rescue. It will be a one-day tournament, though the exact format is TBD. (Last year we were able to guarantee four games per team with pool play. We are looking to possibly do the same this year.) Team Registration forms, Roster forms, and Sponsorship forms are available on this web page. Money and rosters are requested no later than Friday, July 27. Preregistration is welcome by either phone or e-mail. Thank you for your time and please do not hesitate to contact me with further questions.
