Team Latimer Wins Inaugural LITG Fun Day Challenge

Saturday July 7 / 2007 marked the 1st annual Lacrosse – Inside The Game Fun Day Challenge at Peel Park in Whitby.  It was an effort for adults to get out and have a fun filled day of lacrosse, while at the same time raising funds for our site. In a nutshell, I believe we accomplished both.  The weather (although predicted to be very hot) co-operated quite nicely, and there were even periods of cool breeze that simply made the day great.

We were pleased to have six co-ed teams (men and women) participate throughout the day in what was a competitive but very respectful day of lacrosse. Teams were broken into two groups of three teams each. After playing the other two teams in their divisions, there was then a quarter final cross over game, semi final game and ultimately a Championship game.

In addition to lacrosse, there was a raffle table filled with prizes, T-Shirt sales, and a barbecue serving hamburgers and sausages.

In the end, Team Latimer (pictured above) won the Championship final in in an exciting Overtime, defeating Team No Frills (pictured below).  More importantly, everyone I spoke with said that they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and we did raise money to go toward giveaways on our site.  These will include T-Shirts, wristbands and more to the kids.

The success of this tournament was really dependant on a number of  volunteers chipping in and helping us out. With that I’d like to thank the following for donating prizes to our prize raffle table:

Michelle Good – TSN
Mark Watson
Tania Paulozza – Labatt’s
Bud Azzopardi – Pure North Water Quality
Bob Pryor – Bardon Supplies
Rob Roche – Ajax Pickering Rock Lacrosse Club

Also, we had many people step up on Saturday to help out and volunteer their time and efforts in one way or another to ensure the day was a success. I need to send a big thank you out to:

Gail Landry
Tammy Bouwmeester
Bud Azzopardi
Jason Richards
Troy Henry
Eric Perroni
Christina Douglas
Jacob Mark
Cameron Mark
Dakota Kettrick
Kyle Harper
Chris George
Lisa Smiley

This was our first in what we hope to become a semi-annual tournament. Thanks to all of the players and goalies that came out to play and support the day. It was competitive, but I beleive fun for all involved. 

Our next tournament is already being discussed and we are looking at trying for sometime this coming September. More details will follow.

We do still have T-Shirts remaining, if you’d like to purchase one (or more), please see the LITG Stuff section for more details.
