Batter Up!!

It was a beautiful summer day here in Central Virginia, the sun was out, the temperature was just right, and spirits were high. It was the perfect setting for official 09 BRSTF kickoff/ fundraiser we had planned. Endstation teamed up with the Clifford Ruitan club, and presented a softball tournament followed by a pork and chicken bbq dinner. The band FAST was featured during dinner and was available if folks wanted to stay and dance.

Teams arrived and started warming up, while some last minute set-up took place before the actual games were to begin in the afternoon. Signs were created, concessions set, bats and balls distributed, and positions were figured out for the various teams.

The Endstation team, waited patiently and cheered on two other teams as they battled it out on the field for a chance at the final round. When it was time for the Endstation team to take the field, we definitely had our game faces ready.

Even though we were not champions in the end, the Endstation team represented well and had some pretty good moves. All in all everyone had a blast, and we most certainly had a lot of spirit (even if a little heckling took place) it was all in good fun. The other team was so impressed with the endstation talent that they decided to push the envelope and go one more round with the our fearless team.

At the end of the day everyone was a winner, since we all had such a good time. We were able to get the word out about the festival, meet some new people, raise some money and have a blast doing it. Who knows if this will become an Endstation tradition, but it definitely has some potential for the future.

A huge thank you goes out to the Clifford Ruitian club for providing such an awesome meal, and amazing desserts. We appreciate everyone that came out today, and hope that you will join us for at least one if not more than one performances of the three different shows in the festival this year. If you could not join us today, we understand and hope to see you this summer as well!

I wish Shenandoah was that much fun. I'd much rather be at Sweet Briar with Endstation.
