Please share them with your team! 1- Our local sponsor McDonald’s will be providing a light breakfast, and thanks to our National sponsor Pita Pit, everyone will be provided a healthy and delicious lunch! Each participant will receive 1 Powerade, a hat, and a shirt. PLEASE make sure everyone is registered online to ensure each participant receives these awesome items! Feel free to bring a cooler with extra snacks and non-alcoholic drinks. A water bottle is a must- there will be a water station for fill-ups throughout the day. Each team will have an area under a tent (2 teams per tent) to leave their belongings throughout the day. 2- We will hit the fields in rain or shine! Right now, the forecast looks like it’s going our way, but please be prepared and dress for the weather!
