Thanks for organizing Triple Threat

 


I’d like to publicly give Sarah and Ralph Swinton a huge thank you for organizing the recent Triple Threat Basketball Tournament. It is a big chore to get all the details figured out and all the pieces of the puzzle to fall into place – and once again that happened! Thank you to both of them, as well as Lori Giddings and Tiffany DeWitt for coaching the teams during the tournament. I would guess that Haines had 50-plus kids playing this weekend and they all played their hearts out. In addition, a big thank you to all the people who refereed, worked the clock, did the scorekeeping, brought food for the spaghetti feed, worked the spaghetti feed, baked goodies for the concession stand, worked the food booth, set up and took down the gyms, cleaned the school, hauled garbage, transported players (including Bigfoot Auto for donating the use of its bus) and the fans who attended the games. Thank you to everyone for donating your time so that our kids can show you how much they love to play the game!

On another note, there will be an organizational meeting for Little League baseball 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 12 in the school cafeteria. Please mark your calendars. Your help is needed.
