Board Members and All-Star Coaches,
All Teams have been registered with USSSA. The registration-fee has been covered, as well as entry-fee for the All-Star Warm-up tournament this weekend. With this being said let me remind everyone this weekend will be worked on a volunteer basis to support our Livingston All-Star teams. There are substantial amounts of funds that is needed in the following weeks that should be covered by volunteering time this weekend. Just some eye-opening reminders: All-Star uniforms are approximately $30.00 per-child, registration fee $20.00 per-team, All-Star Warm-up entry-fee $225.00 per-team, Fire Cracker Classic (?) $250.00 per-team, State Championship $345.00 per-team, World Series $495.00 per-team, with these totals LP&R is looking at trying to fund a minimum of $10,610.00. Again, LP&R does not have these funds readily available so everything that is raised through volunteer work from this weekend will be given solely back to the children. The 2005 All-Star season worked into the amount of $17,000.00 that LP&R funded for the teams, this was accomplished through volunteers as yourselves.
As it currently stands, the All-Star Warm-Up tournament will be very large. There is 53-teams currently confirmed for this weekend. With that being said, there will be several area's we will need help: working gates, concession workers, dressing fields, clean-up, etc.-etc.. With this size tournament I cannot stress enough the help it takes to make it happen. Coaches - please check with your parents and let me know of volunteers from your teams that are willing to help and some time-lines they will be available.
Contact myself with volunteer info or any of the following so we can work out some scheduling:

IF YOU HAVE PRACTICE SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY EVENING YOU NEED TO LOOK AT RESCEDULING DUE TO A FRIDAY NIGHT START. WE WILL LET YOU KNOW AS-SOON-AS-POSSIBLE.
Just a heads-up: where we have enough teams signed up there will be a separate All-Star division, although there maybe some age-groups that will be combined with AA-teams. Where possible we will separate these.
