I email'ed John as to whether there was a reason he wasn't posting the info about the 4th of July meeting to message boards. He said there really wasn't, and replied, "Feel free to mention it if you would please" so..... This is a copy/paste from the email he sent 6/25: "Just wanted to invite all of you to Marymoor Park for this years 4th of July Celebration. We'll start the festivities off at 2:00 pm with a game of softball for all ages (see below for details), have a BBQ dinner and catch the fireworks once it's dark. If you will be attending this year, please email and let me know if you can volunteer to bring food and/or drink. WHERE: Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA - http://www.scn.org/fomp/map.htm (just look for the SSWS banner at one of the baseball fields) WHEN: 2:00 pm till fireworks are over WHAT TO BRING: Food, drinks, games, softball equipment if you're playing. ABOUT THE SOFT BALL GAME - by Casey Frank Well, it's that time of year again. Time to dust of the old baseball glove for the Seattle Star Wars Society's 2nd annual softball challenge! After the success of last years game, we've decided to do it again! Last year the Yavin Red Squad pulled off the victory, but this year the Mos Eisly Dewbacks are looking for payback. The Game will be on the 4th of July at Marymoor park. The field will be determined the day of, so look for the SSWS banner on one of the fields. Interested in playing? E-mail Casey at Hansolo@seattlestarwars.com All levels of skill are encouraged to play, all age groups as well. So if you're a seasoned veteran or new to softball, feel free to come and play."
