Don’t forget your wallet at home this Sunday because you’re going to want it for the BBQ and RAFFLE. Whistler Brewers will be cooking up some burgers and hot dogs all day at Douglas Park so grab one before your game and one after.

While your there be sure to grab a couple raffle tickets. They will be raffling off a Whistler Beer Keg as well as a wine basket. What a great way to start the summer then with your own keg party!

All money raised benefits SPFK so talk to any Whistler team member for more details.

Hello Everybody,

Opening Day is upon us this Sunday!

imageheres a few reminders to make sure we have a great season:

No peeing or smoking in any alleys near our park!

All Beverages MUST BE IN CUPS!  No a can in a cup is not good enough! Nor are can wraps.

Clean up after yourselves and let leave the park cleaner than we find it.

Have fun!

Introduce yourself to someone you don’t know. They may become your new best friend

see you all at the diamonds,

Hammy

Three and a half years ago Ken was diagnosed with melanoma.  After surgeries and treatments, it was thought that he had eradicated the  disease. However, last March we found that the cancer had come back. He was  diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma, which means it has travelled to other areas of  his body. He has been battling hard, undergoing many different treatments. The  treatment he is doing now is a combination drug that is working and reducing the  tumours. It is costing $10,000/month and this is the reason for the fundraiser.

Many of you know Ken, as he was our “MVP” pitcher for Bridges when we won  the ‘B’ cup in 2011. He was going through his first treatments at that time. I  know cancer hits home with a lot of you out there and to see this happen to your  best friend at the age of 30, it really stops you in your tracks. So we’re  throwing this party in efforts to help Ken in this extremely difficult battle.  The party will be held at Bridges Restaurant on Sunday, April 6th from  4:30-1:00. We have a live band, a DJ, lots of raffle prizes, games and it will  certainly be an amazing time for a great cause. Tickets are $10. You can get  them through me or at the door if you’d like. If you have any questions or if  you would like to help out in any way, please feel free to call or email me. We  also have a website made up for Ken where you can donate online through pay pal  if you wish to do so.
Thanks everyone!
Your friend,
Knobby

After almost two years in the making Dehv Waller and Alex Sashaw are shaving their heads for LOCKS OF LOVE.The event is dedicated to the memory of Michael Klyn and Winston Rekert.

The Party starts at 1pm with the big shave at 3pm. The money from every Red Truck Ale sold goes directly to Lock of Love. There are a bunch of food and drink specials as well as some games and prizes.

There will be tax forms for any financial donations. Even if you cant donate we would love to have everyone there to support such a great cause.

This amazing event is sponsored by Red Truck Beer and The Kingston Taphouse and Grille.
