March 2008 Newsletter Opening Day

March 8th is only a few days away and that means opening day is upon us.  We are asking all families be prepared to assemble at the fields by 8:45 AM.  The ceremony is going to start at 9am so we can get the games underway by 9:30 am.


The snack shack will be open for limited business (it’s not quite finished but we’re getting there).  Coffee and donuts will be available in the morning and throughout the day we will have some other limited offerings. 


In addition, we will be holding a ‘Tile’ fund raiser Saturday.  For $20 you or your child can decorate a tile that will be mounted on the new snack shack.  This is a chance to have a permanent record of your involvement in the league.  Saratoga High is donating their expertise and kiln time.  For more details swing by the booth on Saturday.


Also keep an eye out for our opening day raffle.  Rumor has it that 2 Sharks tickets are one of the prizes.  You can buy tickets throughout the day and the plan is to hold the raffle at 3:30 before the last games of the day.   You don’t need to be present to win.

 Field Cleanup Day

A big thank you to everyone that turned out for field cleanup day on Saturday, March 1.  We had the largest turnout ever which helped us finish our painting, weeding, mowing, sprinkler maintenance, garbage removal and many other tasks.  It was great to see everyone out there. The school district and city provide no support for the fields so it’s through efforts like this that we can keep our fields looking and playing their best.  Also, a special thank you to Ryan Wight of Nor-Cal Autoworks for volunteering to repair our dead golf cart.  Without that cart, we’d have to drag the fields by hand (great exercise but I think most of us would prefer softball).

 Picture Day

Team picture day is scheduled for March 16.  Your coaches should have informed you of your team’s time slot.  Please be on time.  The photographers keep everything moving and if you are not there, only expertise in Photoshop can save you.

 CGFS Night at Armadillo Willy’s

Armadillo Willy’s at 2071 Camden is hosting our next restaurant fund raiser on Wednesday, March 26th from 5pm to 9pm.  CGFS gets 20% of the bill from anyone who eats at Armadillo Willy’s during that time as long as they present a flyer from CGFS.  We should have a flyer posted soon on our website (www.campbellsoftball.com).  Our last two restaurant fund raisers have added almost $500 to our snack shack fund so keep on eating.

 Field Emergency Number

Program your cell phone right now with this number: 408-299-3325.  This is the emergency number you want to use when calling from your cell phone at the softball fields rather than 911.
