- 2p-3p: Tailgate at Patrick and Deb’s house, 7618 Kings Run Rd. In Centerville.
- 3p-5p: Tourney at Yankee Park, only a block and a half away from the tailgate.
- 5pm-7pm: Post game cook out back at Patrick and Deb’s. We have burgers, dogs, and beverages covered. Bring a side dish if you can.

Our first Constant Contact newsletter went out 5 years ago, and in it we announced the birth of Kerry Young’s twin babies, Henry (Hank) and Quinn (Quinny) on 10/6/10. They were premies, and faced a number of challenges in their first few months on the planet. But five years later they are healthy, strong, and ready for some kickball!
