The 16/18u team played Jackson on July 8th in Mankato. One of the highlights was meeting some of the Australian National team after our game. The Aussies are staying at Bethany College in Mankato this summer. Practicing on their facilities and using their weight rooms and training rooms as they prepare for the 2020 Olympics.
The Cardinal Power 14u team got a real treat when three members of the Aussie Peppers professional fastpitch team came into our dugout. Jess, Jordan, and Nicole spent an inning in our dugout, and then were kind enough to join us for a group photo after the games. Thanks, ladies, and good luck this season!
Ilana Moeller was the winner of the drawing from amongst the top sellers during our fundraiser. She won a TV donated by Dan's Appliance and TV. Shown are board member Tim Terfehr (also representing Dan's), Ilana, and board member Cory Hainy. Congratulations to Ilana!
For those of you that hadn't heard yet, the Fairmont Papa Murphy's closed as of May 6. However, we were just informed this evening that the Fairmont Hy-Vee will honor the discount cards!! So, please pass the word around to those people to which you sold the cards. And make sure we all say a big THANK YOU to Hy-Vee, for salvaging what was an ugly situation.
