1. Annual SAMBA Spring Clean-up: Kurtus and Brian have scheduled this Saturday starting at 10:00am to perform our Legion Park Spring Clean-up around the facility and on our diamonds. The entire association is asked to participate in this event and as our team is one of a few that have certain privileges to use the diamond, our support to help clean and prepare the fields for use is very important. With that said we would certainly like to see as many of you possible out there to assist SAMBA with this effort…..if you have a couple of hours and a rake, please bring it along!!
2. NCABL Official Scoring Clinic: All NCABL franchises are required to use a currently approved official scorer for all League games. Everyone is welcome to attend the 2017 official scoring clinic to be held on Saturday, April 29th, from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Bessie Nichols School 189 Hemingway Rd. in Edmonton. All NCABL official scorers attend free of charge and lunch is provided. All must register by noon on Friday, April 28th. To register, simply E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org leaving your name, a primary telephone number , and your E-mail address.
Since I am the only one certified at this point, I would certainly appreciate any of you who many know someone (family member, girlfriend, etc.) to help me out as a secondary score keeper….please let me know prior to Friday if you might know someone who is interested.
3. Exhibition Game: We had discussed the potential of playing an exhibition game against the Primeaus on Sunday April 30th. Based on the weather and field conditions, I have not confirmed anything as of yet however will talk to Kurtus to see if it might still be a possibility and get back to all of you very soon. Otherwise Jason indicated he is trying to get sometime indoors to perhaps go through a batting cage session and some basic ball routines.
