Beautiful weather, fantastic company, great softball competition and wonderful support = our goal achieved.
We were aiming to raise $5000 for the weekend, through our monster raffle, and we achieved that goal! Along with donations from Toowoomba Warriors (every year, thank you!) and this year the Softball Queensland Schoolgirls (thank you girls), we raised just under $5500!
We started selling tickets well before the tournament knowing full well that we ‘masters’ aren’t as fresh after several games in a day like we used to be, meaning walking the park wasn’t something we actually looked forward to! However, Anne Vogler took to it like a fish to water and walked every day, along with several team mates, and sold a whole bunch, ensuring we reached our target.
Special thanks to Graham McColm, Jen from Bizzare Framing, Robyn Tallis, Cheryl-Lee Godfrey, Jodie-Lee King, and Caboolture Warriors who also took tickets off us and sold on our behalf. Thank you to Softball Queensland for again supporting our cause, and not only promoting our raffle, but again selling our merchandise in the SQ merchandise tent.

Thanks to my wonderful team – Carrie, Brooke, Megan, Kelly, Marissa, Kim, Tracey, Tracey-Lee, Frankie, Melanie, Kelli, Frecks, Sheri, Anne, and Rose – team mates, friends, support crew and all round good people!
P4AC masters team won Div 1, in a really even competition. It’s heartening to know that so many ladies still play this game and so well, even though we are all over 35! Thanks Giants, Renegades and Southside Stingers on providing some really tough, competitive, but fun games. I am not sure about playing 9 games in 3 days though?? Just joking, it was great and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Until next year………
