Register as a Ringer or a Recreational player to compete for prizes, bragging rights and the knowledge that you’re having fun while helping the kids at Camp.  Ringers can participate for $110 per team (of two); while Recreational teams get a break with a $60 entrance fee.  New this year is a Family Fun bracket for parent and child teams or siblings against each other.

I attended the RYLA banquet at Baldwin Wallace last night with my family. It was a lovely evening. Rozi Mar from North High is pictured with me in one of the pictures I will be sending you. The theme was Camp Rock and the kids did a fantastic job of rocking it.
Have a great weekend!
