ERICK entertained the 2012 event at Wilson Park and the Rangers Street Team joined us again with shooting and hitting challenges.
Tentworks provided some LARGE tents for additional shelter from the elements - this year it was the SUN! - and some chairs for added relaxation.
All activities (except candy floss) are free for registered players wearing their uniform. Players (through their coaches) are each given a "food ticket" good for a hot-dog and drink. (*Nominal charge for others, or, donations graciously accepted.) There is an agenda for each year's event and times vary depending on the finishing times of the games and actual enrolment figures in the various leagues.
