UPDATE            April 25, 2019

Thanks to all who attended the BBQ on Wednesday.  This is our first time with a Season Kick-off and although we had a few snags, we are thinking it may be an annual thing!  As you might have noticed, we have a fairly small executive committee who pulled off organized all the team equipment and jerseys on Monday before the BBQ along with the team staff meeting and BBQ.  We would love to hear from anyone who has the passion for ball we do and wants to join us.

ALL registrations are now closed with the exception on 11U Baseball (born 2008/09) and Tball.  If you have not paid your fees (registration or jersey) or volunteer deposits please try to log back into your RAMP account and pay credit card (for fees) or etransfer (fees or deposit) to llbmbreg@outlook.com in the next few days.  Julia will be following up with those that need raffle tickets still.  

Organizing the season takes time and we appreciate your patience.  All players will be contacted by their team manager with start up times and dates.   IF you are not contacted by Monday, April 29th please message llbmbreg@outlook.com.  

BIG THANK-YOU to our BBQ sponsor V&H for the burgers & hot dogs, Bookkeeping Plus for all the photocopying and time donation and Kinsmen for the short notice on the venue (no one wanted dirt-burgers!) and the reduced rental fee! 

More updates in the days to come!
