BIG Fun Had By All At `07 League Carnival

Posted by David Yackovich on May 13 2007 at 05:00PM PDT

The 2007 RWLL carnival was a huge success over past years. Through the dedication of many of the RWLL board members and league volunteers, this years carnival outdid them all. With the usual booths in operation we also had a robust raffle with some great prizes donated through community support...without them we couldn't have done it. The baskets that the t-ball teams put together were nothing short of fantastic. I personally put in $20.00 on those in tickets, but came up short. Maybe next year! The 1st annual hit-a-thon turned up nearly 220 kids from the t-ball thru major divisions. There were some pretty fantastic prizes awarded for the hit-a-thon with iPods, $100, $50, and $25 gift certificates awarded to individuals based on total distance achieved during the event. Our grand prize was a Nintendo Wii and was awarded to the player with the most money raised for the hit-a-thon. To see pictures of the hit-a-thon winners here. The success of the carnival is but a small piece of the puzzle in our quest to rebuild the grandstands as they were. We raised over $11,000 for the weekend but this is just a small portion of what is needed to build it back right. Many of you already know that we are hosting a fireworks booth this year that is to be located at the Bel-Air shopping center on the corner of Main St. & Foothills Blvd. Please tell all your friends and family members to come and support the league and purchase your fireworks from us. We are also doing a pre-sell of fireworks and you can purchase tickets at the Snack Shack. If you haven't volunteered for a spot at the fireworks booth and would like to work a 6 hr shift please contact Jacquie Tucker for scheduling options.
