2014 Welcome Letter From GTTBO Board
Thunder Parents,

The board would like to congratulate you, on your son accepting the opportunity to join the Goodrich Thunder Travel Baseball Organization.   We would also like to thank you for choosing Thunder Baseball for the 2014 season.  

The purpose of this letter is to provide the basic information on the upcoming season, and some highlights on what the board has been working on.

The initial financial commitment for this season will be $600, which includes the $400 player cost and $200 in pre-purchased raffle tickets for fundraising.  This is $150 less than our 2013 season!  

Player cost covers:  winter and summer league fees, umpires, uniforms, practice and game facilities maintenances or rental fees, team equipment, and up to 3 tournaments – that is over 30 plus baseball games.

What it doesn’t cover is items that can be reused by returning players – helmet, equipment bags, belt, socks, and extra pants.  Also, any additional tournaments that the coach and parents decide to participate in.

There will be four GTTBO sponsored fundraisers, which are the Raffle, Golf Outing, the Ford Test Drive, and one yet to be determined.

Each family will pre-purchase ten $20 tickets, at a total cost of $200
Parents can sell their ten tickets to recuperate their initial investment of $200 or hold on to them
There will be 3 prizes, Grand Prize of $5000, Second Prize of $1000, and a Third Prize of $500
The drawing will happen during the Golf Outing

Golf Outing will be May 17, 2014 at the Jewel of Grand Blanc, details still being developed.  Please mark this date on your calendar!
Sponsorship holes will be available for those interested
