We are doing another raffle for our Junior Program. We have two sheets of Tenergy (Red/Black) to award to the lucky winners. Prices for the tickets are $2 for one and three for $5 just like we did last year. Our budget for the club does not include supporting the junior members expenses for tournaments. Through donations and a few raffles we are able to assist our juniors with tournament expenses. The sheets of rubber are the maximum thickness Butterfly offers. Most of you are aware that one sheet of rubber is $75 so this is a decent chance to win one without spending the full amount and you will be helping out a great cause. Once we reach reach a total of $200-$225 we will have a drawing. The winner will get their choice of color. The color that is left will be the second part of the raffle. Please see Dan Jr any day we are open for tickets.
Dan is hosting another camp on July 28-30 and has openings. Please see Dan or Jr for details. The coaches have been doing a great job with our juniors and many of them are putting in considerable time to improve their game. Tournaments is another step in the learning curve for these youngsters and they need our support.
I want to thank all of you who have paid up on your annual memberships. This is a critical part of running the club and keeping this nice facility and coach. Our Highland tournament is already in the process of getting our sanction and Dan handed out flyers in Vegas advertising the Oct 22-23 event. This tournament thanks to Si Wasserman is the largest junior purse in the country that we are aware of. We will have an entry completed soon and online at Omnipong.com.
