Sponsor Lunches
Our schedule of sponsor lunches has been amended to enable further play on Tuesdays. Throughout the season we organize a visit to each of our restaurant sponsors on game day. This year, we'll have a dinner at Hometown Sports, one evening in August. Watch for details about that in July.

The sponsors make a significant contribution to our summer fun. Some of that happens when we visit their establishments. Please consider joining your fellow players and other League participants for some of these events. About a week in advance, let your Team Captain know you'll be attending. We encourage you to visit our sponsors at other times and let them know that you are from our league.

The RA Fieldhouse gives us a percentage back of what we spend so please remember to let them know that you are with our league whenever you go there. Vice President Debbie Schryburt is our social convenor.

Monday Ball
The games are on non-holiday Mondays at 10:00 a.m. Anyone is welcome to show up at the RA Diamond #1 and teams will be made up when you arrive. The cost is $20.00 for the season or $2.00 per week. Thanks to Merv and Marlyn Montroy for looking after this.

Batting Practice
There is batting practice every Thursday morning at 9:30 at Hampton Park.

Home Runs
The Homerun trophy this year will be awarded for the most HRs hit over the fence during the regular season. Make sure your scorekeeper/captain reports all of yours.

Rainouts
In case of rain an email will be sent out on gameday morning by 8:00. Please show up at the RA if you haven't heard anything either from the league or your Captain. It may be raining at your house but not at the RA. Games that have been rained out are normally played on Wednesday if the diamonds are available.

Email Communication
Email is the primary communication method of the league. If you are not getting email notices, or if you know of anyone who should be getting them, please let the league know. ottawa60plusslopitch@gmail.com
