CNCC hosting fast-pitch softball clinic for girls in Craig
The Colorado Northwestern Community College softball team from Rangely will be hosting a fast-pitch softball clinic next weekend.
Any girl age 8-18 interested in playing softball or learning about the game can sign up for $30.
The clinic will start at 10 a.m. Sept. 1 at Woodbury Sports Complex, 250 Mack Lane, and last an undetermined amount of time, depending on the number of participants.
It will teach all basic softball skills, such as hitting, fielding and running. More advanced softball players will have the opportunity to receive more advanced direction as well.
There will also be a “closest to the pin” contest, in which participants throw from the outfield and attempt to land their ball closest to home plate. Each ball will cost $5, and proceeds will go to the softball program.
For more information, contact Jason Marshall at 824-2594.
Nighttime tournament hosted at Yampa Valley Golf Course
Grand Futures Prevention Coalition will host the first Shot in the Dark Midnight Golf Tournament Sept. 14 at Yampa Valley Golf Course.
The tournament will consist of teams of four, but individuals may sign up and will be put into teams by the start of the tournament. The cost to play is $25 per individual or $100 for a team.
The format is a nine-hole, four-person scramble with a twist. Each player on a team may only bring one golf club to be used by the entire team, so each team will play with four clubs total.
Prizes will be awarded to the team with the lowest gross and net scores, as well as those with the best costumes.
Proceeds will benefit Grand Futures, which is still looking for hole sponsors for $100. The tournament is scheduled to start at dusk. Grand Futures is still accepting donations and prizes. For more information, call 824-5752.
