It has been two years since the last tournament in Conrad. Upon numerous requests on behalf of the beneficiary, the co-ed softball tournament is set for July 26 and 27, with all the proceeds from the tournament to go to Eric Norby to help him with his battle with leukemia.
Concessions will be sold all weekend, along with 50/50 tickets, tournament can cozies, as well as hoodies and T-shirts. In addition, a free-will donation dinner is set for Saturday evening at the ball park starting around 5 p.m. with Big Ox BBQ to help host. Java Hut has also offered to come and serve throughout the weekend. The tournament will also include a homerun derby and extra loser out games for those interested.
All are welcome to attend the tournament. Families and spectators are encouraged to come, watch, and enjoy.
Volunteers and donations are being accepted right up to the tournament weekend.
One out of five kids in America struggle with hunger. Pondera County Insurance is putting on a Mini-Triathlon to raise money for No Kid Hungry, which has a summer meal site in Conrad, and also to raise awareness for childhood obesity.
