We’ll be hosting our fourth annual Snowball indoor softball tournament on Sunday 16th December! It’s always a fantastic event but we’ll need as much help as we can get to make sure the day runs smoothly. Anyone who’d like to play will get a place on our team. We’ll be sending out the sign-up form for this next week. All players will also be needed to help out throughout the day (scoring, selling raffle tickets etc). If you don’t fancy playing but you’d like to help, please do come along. Friends and family are also welcome to come and cheer you on!
Here’s a link to the Facebook event for the tournament:
