North Wilkes-Barre Little League: My Site News: To All NWB Parents

Friday, February 8
To All NWB Parents

Dear Parents,

I am taking this opportunity to reach out to all of you to ask for your support. Please join fellow North Wilkes Barre LL parents, players, family & friends; next Sunday the 17th at 4:05pm as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins take on the Syracuse Crunch to help celebrate Little League Appreciation night! We are hoping to have a nice big group to get things rolling for the 2013 season. Hey NWBLL, Let's represent! It is this easy: Pick up a Voucher on Saturday 2/9 during league player registration; or go to our website: and print one off. Players are all free. For every adult ticket purchased, the Penguins will donate $4.00 back to our league! Tickets can be purchased by bringing the voucher to the 40 Coal Street Penguins Team Store Monday thru Friday between the hours of 8:30am and 5pm. If any questions, please call Andrew Augustine @ 570-208-5415. This is a league fundraising event. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT !!!!!!!

A few other items of importance I would like to emphasize:

THIS SATURDAY, 2/9 10-12 @ Hollenback – Player Registration......we are getting closer and closer to league tryouts, etc.. We need more activity at registration days. Please do not wait until last minute. Help us out here so we can plan for uniform #s, opening day, etc.

VOLUNTEERS – I can not emphasize this enough! We do not have enough help from parents in this league. The same handful of people are doing all the work. We desperately need parents to step up. We need Coaches, Team Moms, Concession Stand volunteers, Field Maintenance people, etc. Whatever help you can give, we will gladly take. PLEASE fill out a Volunteer Application at Registration or print one off of our website and return to us.

We are trying many new and exciting things this year. LL apreciation night @ Penguins game, LL appreciation night with parade at the new RailRiders stadium, Tentative HOME RUN Derby on opening weekend, New venue for our EARLIER family day in June with games, Dunk Tank (With the coaches...HAHA). Lets have fun kids!!!!!!

We have a tentative tryout date of Early March; LESS than one Month away, and a tentative OPENING DAY of April 13th! Parents, we need to get moving. Please register your child ASAP, and please Volunteer.

Thank you for your Support

Rich Gdovin – President NWBLL
