First and foremost, we hope this finds you all healthy and safe. We miss seeing all of you at practices and tournaments, and look forward to a time where we can all be together in the gym again.
While we would love nothing more than to wrap up the 2019-2020 season by hosting our traditional Rec State tournament and fundraiser pizza party, it has set in that making these events happen simply isn’t realistic. Postponing and rescheduling in a reasonable timeframe just isn’t possible.
Still, we will push forward with this year’s raffle. Thanks to those of you who have turned in your tickets already. For those of you who haven’t turned them in yet, you have until Wednesday, April 1, to continue selling. We’ll collect the remaining tickets sold from Thursday, April 2nd through Saturday, April 4th.
You can get us your tickets in three ways:
· Drop them off at Board President Brian Dvorak’s house (2756 Idaho Ave. S., St. Louis Park, MN 55426). If you prefer, you can also mail them.
Leave Ticket/Money packets in box on “Back Porch”.
· If you prefer to not leave your house, email Brian Dvorak at email@example.com and he will collect the tickets from you at your home.
· Bring them to Justad Park on Saturday, April 4, from 10am – 2pm. A board member will be there to collect the tickets.
We will hold the raffle drawing on Sunday, April 5. If you are interested in viewing the event, we will record the drawing and post a link to our Facebook page at 1 p.m. A full list of winners as well as instructions on how to receive your prize will be posted to the SLPBTBA website and Facebook page following the drawing.
Our hope is that we surpass raffle sales from past years as we have a significant budget deficit following the cancellation of the Rec State tournament, our largest fundraiser of the year. As a board, we’re still working through what that cancellation means for us and we will communicate more to you as we better understand our options.
Thank you to you all for your patience with us as we work through these end-of-year details. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of our board members.
Take care and stay healthy. Go Park!
