We also look forward to seeing old faces with them and from our side as well please make a special effort to be there.

Before we have preseason games the annual ritual of opening the clubhouse will be taking place THIS Saturday. Players will have the duty to prep the field for the season as well as participate in a training session run by the teams’s Captains, a “Captain’s Run” one would say. For those looking for a ride to Saint Julie, carpools are being arranged at Hurley’s for 9AM. Other volunteers are encouraged to bring gardening tools (rakes and brooms) to facilitate field prep.
