Save the Date / C8 Tourney

C8 Chartier Orthodontics Parents:

I have been emailing with the Team Manager Lead about the end of season, in-house tournament.  This has not been officially added to our schedule yet although I have added it as a general event.  Please "Save the Date" for the weekend of June 26-27 as this is the likely weekend of the tournament and we will still need a minimum of 8 players per game to participate.  The league is working on the best way to handle the tournament during Covid as it was cancelled for last year.  You will receive additional information as it is avaialble to me or in direct communications from MBA.

Thank you,

Kelly Kress

Weekly Update: C8 Chartier Orthodontics
by posted 05/04/2021

Dear C8 Parents,

Here is the update for this week:

Schedule
Saturday, 5/8 @ 8:15AM – Chartier Orthodontics vs Rocket 55 / Bennett 4 – Great Clips Field
Sunday, 5/9 @ 4:45PM – Chartier Orthodontics vs Kyle Hunt & Partners / Excelsior Commons
Monday, 5/10 @ 7:00PM – Practice at Bennet 3D

Weather Note:  The current forecast indicates that this weekend will be cooler.  Please make sure that your player is dressed appropriately and has a jacket they can put on if needed, especially while waiting in the dugout.

Announcements
RSVP to Games: Please continue to RSVP to games online or in the SSU Play App.  This is a huge help to the coaches and me as we plan batting order and outfield positions.  We are rotating the players so everyone gets a fair opportunity at outfield positions and number of times at bat per game.

Dugout Changes:  As you know from this past weekend, we have moved away from the extended dugout option.  You will not need to bring a camp chair for your player.  Please make sure your player has a mask and remind them before the game to wear it whenever they are in the dugout. Thank you!

Party:  Many teams have an end of season party.  I must admit that party planning is not my strength, but I am willing to work with another parent to help our team celebrate.  If you would like to host and/or plan an end of season party, please contact me.

Volunteer Opportunities: New Volunteer Opportunities are online for this weekend at Vets Field / MHS if you need to complete volunteer hours.

Golf Tournament Fundraiser:  Save the date for Monday, June 21st and the annual MBA Golf Tournament.  The event will be held at Deer Run and more information will be coming from the league soon.

Silent Auction Coming Soon:  Stay tuned for a silent auction fundraiser that will help raise money for field improvements and scholarships!  The auction will have items from team sponsors and families.

Thank you for all you do to support your player and our team!  I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

C8 Chartier Orthodontics / Weekly Update 4/27/21
by posted 04/27/2021

Dear Parents:

Thank you for the great support of our team this weekend in the freezing cold!  I am looking forward to a better weather forecast for our next two games.  Here are the updates for this week:

Schedule
Saturday, May 1 @ 2:45PM / Excelsior Commons / Heartland Roofing vs Chartier Orthodontics
Sunday, May 2 @ 12:00PM / Manitou NE / Thompson Tarasek Lee-O’Halloran vs. Chartier Orthodontics
Monday, May 3 @ 7:00PM / Bennett Field 3D / Practice

DAK Scoring
Would you be interested in running the scoreboard for games?  I am looking for a parent volunteer to run the scoreboard for “home” games, using the DAK Scoring App.  This app is easy to use and is accessed on your phone.  Please contact me if you would like to help. 

Picture Ordering Update
Once Kemmetmueller Photography has finished processing all the players photos, you will receive an email from me with a link to your pictures.  From there you can select the images you prefer and place orders. 

Volunteer Opportunities
As of this morning at 8:45AM there were still a few volunteer positions available at Freeman for the upcoming weekend.  They seem to be loading new opportunities on Mondays so if you need to fill volunteer obligations, I recommend checking each week.  You can find volunteer opportunities by going to the MBA website and clicking on Menu / Volunteer Duty / Volunteer Events.  If the screen is blank, that indicates all positions are filled.

Thank you for all you do as parents to support your players.  Have a great week and we will see you on Saturday.
