I am very proud of the family atmosphere that has prevailed in the park. Everyone has been instrumental in keeping our park clean. Volunteers are coming forth to help us. Umpires have been more receptive and that has given us a bit of free time so we could have additional events for our girls, such as the Easter egg hunt we hosted for Rookies and Peewee. Thanks to all the persons who donated items for this event! We have other events on the back burner and we will inform you of them as they come up.
At Opening Ceremonies, I invited community members to ponder the idea of joining our Board. The time is here upon us! We are accepting applications for the board elections to be held mid-May. The applications will be available at the back office and the due date will be relayed to you. Once all applications have been processed, we will advise you, so that you can inform individuals of your intent. Every parent of a child playing at Brownsville North will be allowed to vote.
The Brownsville North Board is also pleased to announce that we will be offering scholarships for our graduating seniors. Any senior is encouraged to apply and a selection committee will determine who the recipients will be. They will be announced at Closing Ceremonies. Please see Tony Rodriguez for additional information.
I want to wish good luck to teams attending upcoming tournaments. Brownsville North will be well represented and hopefully bring home positive results. Regardless of the results, every game played by our players serves to enhance their playing ability and to build up their confidence. It also creates a bonding environment within each team that will build lasting memories for the girls.
Finally, we are fast approaching the second half of our season, followed by All-stars. The All-star tournament will be at Laguna in Corpus and we hope to see a number of you there. A team representing the Junior, Senior and Teenager Division will be in attendance. The Peewee All-stars will represent the league in a tournament hosted here in Brownsville. Preparations are already underway for these tournaments. Any parent who thinks their child may be an All-star for the Laguna tournament is encouraged to book their rooms because a water park is opening up in the area at the same time that the All Star Tournament will be held. If the player is not able to attend, it is easier to cancel a room.
