    Hey ballplayers…we have 4 vacant fields on Monday nights that are available…Would there be enough interest to run a 35 and over league for a short spring season?
    Same discounted team and players fees as coed.
    The softball complex is open but only being used for half the fields. We as a softball association (all you players) could use the revenue from this night to further our
    softball goals for better conditions for all of us. (we can use your help)
    Any interest in 35 & older, or other leagues or ideas out there? (Someone suggested a cornhole league)
    Please let us know.

    Fred, I would be interested if I was home. It would be fun to dona draft style 35 and older league. Just pay your fee and see who you play with.

    I am struggling to find out where to pay the $500 team fee? Have been to the field office, called many times, and nothing is posted anywhere that I can find as to where to give the check??

  4. Jeremy Ladson - Reply

    Is there somewhere we can drop off the $500 registration? Obviously, mail doesn’t go out on Sunday and deadline is the 15th. Can we drop it off somewhere? Or can it be postmarked in the 16th??

  5. Kyle Beaird - Reply

    Chad and Jeremy I am guessing you both were the ones who texted me but just send it to the PO BOX 4112 RC SD 57709-4112 and you will be covered. Text me at 605-391-6179 if you need more assistance.

    Thanks,

    Kyle
