As many of you know one of our league members, John Champ, holds a Conners Cause for Children Golf Tournament every year that relies on his softball buddies participation. John had a son Conner, who lost his life to cancer several years ago. A foundation, Conner's Cause for Children, was formed before his passing to help families that have a child with a life threatening illness. The organization has raised funds that have helped several thousand families in San Diego County in honor of Conner's memory.
John is asking you to please sign up for a great day of golf at Shadowridge Golf Club on Monday Sept 9 to help raise urgently needed funds for San Diego families facing the burden of caring for a child with a life threatening illness. Go to http://connerscause.org/ to learn more and register!
This a great value for a special day of golf. If you can’t come for golf or dinner please consider making a contribution to help a great local cause. Managers will have flyers when we play our games next week with more details. Thank you for your continued support.

NCSS 29 Year Anniversary
A few years ago, we posted notice that Max Gritzmaker had passed away. With so many new players, there are many of us that didn't have the pleasure of knowing and playing with Max. He was a fabulous person and a man instrumental in founding the league and the parity model we use to guide our play.
Among the things Max contributed to the league was to author a 25th Anniverary Booklet. For those players interested in the history of our league and want to see who some of the key men have been along the way, enjoy the reading. We still have a few "founding fathers" around who might have some stories to tell. Fortunately, Al McGee was able to create a booklet with the pages he received to work with. Images were scanned and uploaded to a PDF file and we were not able to rotate some of the images.
The content is amazing and speaks to the long and rich heritage of our league. Thank you Max for documenting your NCSS experience and for leaving such a great example of valuing this wonderful game and enjoying the comraderie of our players. Please click link below to view.
