Greetings from Granby, QC, home of the 2013 Canadian Senior Women’s Invitational Championships.  This event has been in the planning stages for many months now and we are nearing the start date for the event itself.  Please find enclosed a few details that might assist the teams in better preparing themselves for their arrival.

 Teams:

 

Transportation and accommodations:

Each team is responsible for the costs stemming from transportation to the event and to and from the stadium.  Teams will also be responsible for accommodations for their players and other personnel.  Our organisation is responsible for the cost incurred for the field itself, be it umpires, grounds crew, scorekeepers etc.

Accommodations for teams:

Great care has been taken in providing adequate accommodations for the teams at the lowest cost possible.  Pricing details were sent out to all the Provincial Baseball Association in March and in April 2013, in the hope that the information would filter done to the various teams attending our event.  Please refer to the Baseball Canada web site for the information regarding our host hotel.  http://www.baseball.ca/seniorwomen/

For those teams interested in washing their uniforms, may we suggest one of two Laundry-Mats here in the City!  Your uniforms can be washed for you at a cost of $6.00 per load, or if you prefer the do-it-yourself method, it will cost you $3.00/load.  The choice is yours... do it yourself or get it done.
