Just a reminder that we have field clean up this Saturday and Sunday, April 9 and 10 from 9am - noon, and again next Saturday, April 16 from 9am - noon. A minimum of 1 representative from each team is needed. If you have any rakes at home that you can bring with you, it would be a huge help. We have a lot of stuff to do to get prepared for the 2016 and appreciate the help. Thanks for your support!
