SUMMER FEST 2004 RECAP
Friday saw Maria's Pizza, an over-35 team, win 5-4 over a younger Keith's Kid's team and advance to Saturday.
Saturday was rocky with Rocky's Pizza advancing into Sunday, but also rocky with the annual co-ed/men's scheduling problems, a forfeit due to an illegal bat, too early of a start of winning bracket teams, etc. Lessons learned for next year. But we also saw a great game to end the night between TJC & A&R, followed by a homerun contest that showcased Scott from A&R hitting seven in the first round followed by an eye-opening performance by Colin from Keith's Kid's. Joe Robson of Anderson Premiere Homes eventually won the contest and the new bat donated by Badger Sporting Goods with second place trophy going to Colin of Keith's Kids.
Sunday the experienced teams prevailed with defending champions Center Tavern I winning the co-ed championship and A&R Closet Creations taking the men's.

Thanks also to Mike Devenport for pre-tourney preparations. Thanks to those names I missed. Next year we'll need a lot more help to make this work right.
