DETAILS FOR END-OF-THE-SEASON BASH!
Each team will be responsible for providing side dishes and drinks for their team. IGSA is providing hotdogs and bottled water (1 per person until they're gone). Families will need to bring lawn chairs, card tables, coolers, pop-up-tents or anything else they might need for their picnic areas.
Gates to the parking lot will open at 5:00 p.m. As you enter the gate, you will receive a ticket for each parent and player in your vehicle. (You will present these tickets at the shelter behind Field 3 to receive a hot dog and a bottled water. You will keep one ticket and we will keep the matching ticket for prize drawings throughout the night.)
PLEASE NOTE: Once the bottom parking lot is full, we will have a sign at the upper parking lot that says "bottom lot full", park in upper lot, for those coming from the North. We will also have a sign at the lower lot for those coming from the South. There is also a small parking lot across Lee's Summit Road for overflow parking, should the upper lot fill up.
While other family members are welcome, we cannot provide hotdogs for everyone so please make sure other family members that attend provide their own food. The concession stand will NOT be open. It would also be helpful if families carpool as parking will be tight.
Coaches will need to plan a meeting spot for their team so that they will be in the same area for eating. All areas on the bottom fields will be available, unless roped off. We would ask that you not set up on the concrete track behind field 2.
We will have areas of interest set up around field 2 (which are all free).....face painters, balloon artist and a magician. We will also have a Dippin' Dots station ($4 for a 3 oz packet of your favorite flavor). Make sure and visit these areas with your kids!

You may view from the Field 2 outfield fence or along the 3rd baseline fence on Field 2. We suggest bringing chairs to the concrete track behind the field.
