8/4 Tourney Information

Hello everyone!

As we approach the 8/4 single-elimination tournament, we need your help recording your games into the IISL spreadsheet.  We will be using this information to seed your respective teams for the 8/4 tournament.
For those of you new to the league, the 8/4 tournament will be officiated and played according to the ASA slow-pitch rules.  All games will be held between 9am-5pm and be played at: Olympic Fields, 1675 E. Old Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg. (http://www.parkfun.com/parks/olympic-park)  We hope to finalize the tourney schedule by Tuesday next week.
This year, we will be conducting two special events at this year’s tournament:
1. A voter registration drive
2. A bone marrow donor drive
Voter Registration Drive
KA VOICE (Korean American Voter Organizing Initiative & Community Empowerment) will be present to register voters. KA VOICE is a non-profit, non-partisan volunteer group of Korean Americans working to encourage voting by the community so that Korean Americans’ political voice is heard this election year. For more info, visit: www.kavoice.org.
Bone Marrow Donor Drive
Representatives from LifeSource will be on hand to register people in the National Marrow Donor Program. As many of you know, one of Calvary’s church members had a son who recently needed a bone marrow transplant. He was fortunate to find a match and successfully receive a donation, but had some complications afterwards and passed away. His situation shed light on the fact that Asians are far less likely to find a bone marrow donor because of there are so few donors registered. There will be tables set up at the tournament and we’re asking each captain to invite family and friends and church members to come and register. The process of registering is very simple and should only take a few minutes of your time.  More information to follow.
Look for another email about details of the tournament.  Good luck everyone and have a blessed week.
