UPDATE - Multiple Gloves Found at Mike Church Tournament
So the original Lost Glove from my earlier post has been recovered.
But now it has been brought to my attention that 3 other Gloves have been Found.
2 gloves are with Kelly Toombs and 1 Glove is with Don McKillop.
So everyone that was out on Sunday for the Mike Church Classic, please check your bags because we have 3
recovered gloves that belong to someone.
Kelly let me know that he will be at the Triwood Diamond from 5:45pm – 8:30pm every night this week. If no one claims them this week he will leave the 2 gloves he has inside the lockbox at Triwood.
Please let me know if you discover one of these 3 gloves is yours and we will make arrangements to get them back

It belongs to Wayne Nelson.
He believes he left it in the 3rd base dugout and it was hanging on a peg on Diamond #3.
Any info would be appreciated.
2023 Casino Night Results !!
We received some Great News from our League Treasurer, Don Jorgensen, today with the results
of our 2023 Casino Nights which were held back on Feb 14th and 15th.
Don informed us that the League brought in just under, $80,000 from our asino nights. ($400 shy of $80K)
This is one of the highest, if not, the highest result our League has received from the Casino’s. One of the more recent casinos brought in an amount in the mid $60,000 range. So this is great news for our League.
We have to once again send out a HUGE Thank You to all of the Volunteers that stepped up on those 2 nights and contributed their time and efforts in making this a great success.
Volunteering this Year were, Ron Williams,
Graham Brockway, Goeff Weiss, Pat Methuen, John Konno, Howard Northcott, Michael Fitzsimmons, Rick Jolie, Larry Bisson, Allen Howard, Len Seib, Brian Caouette, Tim Story, Alan Vandersteen, Ross Lauri, Curtis Buck, Kirk Collins, Ralph Gardeski, Maurice Lakness, Roger Bolton, Ed Thurmeier, Guy Fortier, John Schmidt, Dan Muhlbach, Murray Cumming, Wayne Nelson, Jim Christensen, Joe Elder , Tim Skory and Owen Melenka.
Also volunteering for two shifts were Don Jorgensen who worked the 6:45 pm to 3:30 am shifts both days and also managed the contractual responsibilities for our league for our casino advisors, the Cowboy’s Casino contract and AGLC financials and reports (spending our money). Don Cheveldayoff also worked the same two shifts and finally a special thanks to Bill Aitken who stepped up at the last minute to work both nights and manage the 11:15 pm to 3:30 am shifts in the count room. Bill took this responsibility on short notice due to an unexpected circumstance and his generosity was greatly appreciated.
And a big thank you to Norm Hurley who stood by his phone both days as the emergency call out. Fortunately his services were not required as all volunteers reported on time. But, he was available if necessary.
Thanks to Everyone Involved.
Congratulations from Your 2023 Board,
Ron DiPasquale, Gary Paukert, Don Jorgensen, Ron Williams, John Schmidt, Dave Finn, Chris Tucker, Bill Aitken, Bruce Hall, Brian Caouette, Borden Gavrich, Graham Brockway, Les Seib, Wayne Nelson, Paul McNeil
