Have A Heart RESCHEDULED

Thank you to all the teams and parents that have reached out to me this morning. Teams have asked how they can help and I’ve told them the t-shirt sales is generating the money for kids college fund. We have over 100 to sell on top of the team preorders. Please email me at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com to place an order and we can let you know if we have your sizes. For teams that pre-ordered please send me your address so I can ship this week and you can pay by credit card or you can send in check.

Many have asked about rescheduling this event. I have rescheduled our “Have A Heart” in NC for July 8,9.  Please email me if your team would like to play.

Covington VA – 1 Day April 22/ Have A Heart UPDATE – FYI

We have had some teams drop from Covington VA this coming weekend due to league games they must make up on Saturday.  We have now made this event a 1 Day, Saturday April 22 tourney.  We will take teams up until Noon on Wednesday in 12u and 14u.  We will have the schedule posted that evening by 6pm.  We need all teams to make sure that we have 2 email addresses on file for your team.  We will post schedule to website but all your paperwork will be emailed to you.  Please email Tim to give us the 2 addresses – timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com.

 

The schedule for our “Have A Heart” set for April 22, 23 will be posted by 5pm tomorrow, April 18.  ALL teams are VERIFIED and the event is FULL so IF something comes up with your team and you are unable to play, we MUST be told by Noon tomorrow.  Please make sure your team has given us 2 email addresses to send your paperwork to.  Once we have those 2 addresses on file you will not need to give them each week you play unless you let us know otherwise. Please email Tim at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com to give us those addresses.  We remind teams that ALL the profits from the sales of the tourney shirt go to a College Fund set up for Tim’s nephew and nieces.  This tourney is in memory of Tim’s sister, Caroline, who died suddenly last August of a heart attack.  Macy, Macon and Molly will all be at the tourney on Saturday at Summerfield for an hour or so before they need to leave to get to Macon’s baseball tournament.  We hope the coaches pass the word on to their parents and we sell all the shirts.  Pre-order deadline has passed.  For those who pre-ordered we will have those shirts for you on Saturday at your park. Teams/parents/fans can ALWAYS pre-order tourney shirts at our apparel website, www.GotGameShop.com to ensure you get the sizes you need.  We usually only have smalls and mediums at tourneys so to get Youth Small to Adult 4x you must order on the website and we will have them for you at the tourneys or we can ship out to you.  Thank you to all the teams playing and next year we already have the parks lined up to accommodate 100 teams.  The date for the 2018 “Have A Heart” will be April 14,15.

“Have A Heart” April 22-23 COACHES INFO

We wanted to let teams know that they MUST email us by Tuesday, April 18 at 10am to VERIFY that they are still playing in the April 22,23 “Have A Heart” tournament in NC.  We will make 1 attempt to contact the team(s) that have not VERIFIED.  We will begin schedule on Tuesday afternoon and it will be posted to website on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.  The sooner all teams verify then the sooner we can begin the process of working on the schedule for teams and umpires and get to all the parks.  It will be a busy week for that tourney so we are just making sure we do not have to re-do schedule for any drops.  We will contact teams still not verified on Tuesday after 10am and if we have not heard back from them BY EMAIL by Noon, they will dropped from the tourney.  Please begin to VERIFY now by emailing Tim at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com.  We are also playing in Covington VA that weekend and their schedule will be posted by 6pm on Tuesday, April 18.

Have A Heart UPDATE

We wanted to let teams know that the “Have A Heart” Tournament t-shirt TEAM ORDERS are DUE on Friday, April 14 at Noon.  Your team can order and pay by credit card at www.GotGameShop.com.  IF your team will pay by cash or check you can email your order to Tim at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com. Shirts are $20 for Youth Small to XL and $22 for shirts in sizes of 2X and 3X.  We will only have a few Youth shirts and nothing bigger than an XL at the tourney sites.  This season to make sure you get the sizes you need we added the Got Game Shop website.  We will have your shirts at your park on Saturday morning at our t-shirt table.  Individuals may also order the sizes they need at www.GotGameShop.com. IF your team has a nurse or doctor that would like to attend 1 of our parks and discuss the symptoms of a potential heart attack in women please contact Tim.  We had many late last year offer to help out with this but we have been unable to confirm them for Saturday, April 22.  This will be an annual event for us and we hope to bring awareness to the different symptoms women experience before a heart attack than in men.  This event is being held in Memory of Tim’s sister, Caroline Doby Ollis, who died last August of a heart attack. She had symptoms for days leading up to her death and her heart attack could have been prevented.  Caroline’s 3 children, Macy, Macon and Molly will be attending this tourney on Saturday and ALL the profits from t-shirt sales will go into a college fund that Tim has set up for his nephew and nieces.  We want to THANK all the teams that are playing in this tourney.  It is great to see #GotGameNation STEP UP to HELP!

Have A Heart April 22, 23 UPDATE – FYI

We have added Freedom Park in Eden NC to our list of parks for our “Have A Heart” tourney set for April 22, 23.  Since the 12u age is already FULL at the YMCA in Eden, we will now use Freedom Park  to add up to 15 more 12u teams.  14u and 16u/18u is also already FULL but they are playing in the Greensboro area so we are trying to add 1 more park in that area.  10u is playing at Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC and they can take 6 more teams.  IF you are a 14u or a 16u/18u team please let us add you to Waiting Lists if you would like to play.  We will do our best to secure another park in that area or we will tweak our format to get in as many teams in as possible.  We will add Freedom Park to the list of parks on our Who’s Playing Spring/Fall page on website this afternoon.  12u teams now have more spots available.  To sign up for this event or any of our tourneys, please email us at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com.
