Drag Queen Barbie Bingo - April

This months Drag Queen Bingo is April 17th. "Cocktails with the Queens" starts at 6pm in the Cocktail Lounge. Doors Open to guests at 6:30pm... the early birds get the best seats!!! Game show kicks off at 7:30pm with featured entertainment by (the "Green Queen" herself) BIG SHIRLI STEVENZ, Crystal Frost, Fucsia Rage, Akasha Diamond, and special guest Sassi Stevenz. All events take place at The Empire Room located at 203 South Elm Street, Greensboro, NC.

Green Queen BINGO – it’s bingo with a twist! Green Queen Bingo has become the must attend event in downtown Greensboro. Sponsored by the Guilford Green Foundation (GGF), each bingo draws a multitude of diverse groups for a night of fun and enjoyment. Each bingo game is sponsored by local businesses and individuals who provide monetary support to join Big Shirli Stevenz, the Green Queen herself, on stage to draw and announce the winning numbers. Game sponsorships, along with ticket sales, raffles and concession proceeds go to fund various Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transsexual (GLBT) initiatives in Greensboro though GGF’s grants program. In 2007, GGF granted $70,000 dollars back into our community.

I'm not sure who's rounding up this months outing for our group. I (unfortunately) won't be able to go to DQB or meet up with y'all afterwards (I have a show that weekend). If you'd like to go, please post a comment here and we'll get something going.

See you all Tuesday night for the game!

Giving to the Susan G Koman Run

Hi all! I wanted to re-post this on the blog just in case any emails are lost or not received.

We've talked about giving to charities as a team before and this is the perfect time to start. Vicki's (on our women's team and soon to be on the co-ed team) girlfriend, Lisa, is participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for Breast Cancer and is looking for donations to support her and the foundation. I thought it would be great if we could give a monetary donation as a group... Total Chaos. The race is May 2nd, so we have plenty of time to collect money. No amount is too small, so even if it's $1.00, it's a $1.00 more than they had. If you'd like to contribute, please bring what you can to the ball games over the next few weeks and turn it in to me. I'll make a lump sum donation for Lisa's run about a week before the event. To visit Lisa's page about the run, please click here. Her goal is $125, but let's see if we can bust that wide open.

Thanks guys!

Update from the Coach's corner


Congrats on winning our opener, 10-2, vs AAR.

It was somewhat of a warm-up game for us....showing areas where we can improve(fielding - pop ups and grounders), and got us acclimated to the new 3rd Strike foul-out rule(we have to stop swinging for the fence). We were very fortunate that our first game was against AAR.

The feedback I got back from my scouting agent is that some of the other teams are powerhouses. Burchette from last year, split into two very strong teams, and two of the new teams hired some lumberjacks. We will not have fun having a team pound us for a 30 minute inning, as Derek and I witnessed in a game prior to ours. We want to be ready....which I will be sending out a practice for this Sunday(weather looks 60ish and sunny).

Overall, we did great. Our team is just that, A team! I want to thank Jen and Heather M, for helping me with the book, and Chris always for her support! Speaking of which, Chris has elected to put together a blog for the team: I have attached Chris' email below.

Also, I have to give kudos to Derek for pitching a great game(no walks from what I can read or remember), and identifying some of AAR's weaknesses!

Our next game is against the Giving Kiosk(Turkey Buzzards) at 6:30pm on field 3! As ususal, let me know if you cannot make it!

-Coach K

PS. Chris, You did a great job with this. It kicks *ss!

Total Chaos--Cherry Buster....

I am loving the site as well as my teammates of course. I am disenchanted with the new rule as well. I think it's ridiculous that they can alter the whole game like that. I mean, gees, that's like telling a hockey team how many shots on goal they can have, or like taking away a free throw when there's a foul and only allowing one, or like taking away the 4th down in football. Sacrilegious in my book, but oh well. We go with the flow. I think overall it will be a great season just like the last. I am just so happy to be here for the spring season and not in some sandbox halfway around the world. I have missed everyone, and appreciate all the support. You are all like family to me. I love you guys......Now, let's play ball!!!!!

The Launch of our Blog

Since this is the launch of our Blog, I'll go ahead and tell everyone what we'll be posting on here and save the game info for last.

We do a lot of things together besides play ball. We're all really good friends (some are even dating), so we all hang out together, have little outings, weekend trips, girls night, etc. This will be where we'll post pictures of past gatherings, info for upcoming events, game information and everything else that comes up. It's kind of a catch-all for our team. All pictures/posts are welcome from anyone on the team. If you're not sure how to work a blog, just give a shout to Jen or I and we'll help you out. If you have any links you'd like added (for your business site, blog, etc.), let me know and we'll get it put up. Also, if you have a favorite widget or piece of personal info you'd like to share, we'll add it too. This is a TEAM BLOG... it's for everyone, so it should have a piece of everyone on it. =)

Now, on to the game...

First off, NSA/Kville Parks & Rec changed the number of foul balls we're allowed to have. We now only get 3 strikes (regardless of whether their fouls or actual strikes), where we used to get 3 fouls (4 strikes). Basically they took a possible hit away from every batter.

We played AAR and they're always a great team to go up against. They're a lot like us... just enjoying being out there, keeping it fun and joking around. But with the new rule, it was pretty tough on just about everyone and every team. I can't tell you how many of us either fouled out or popped up because we were too anxious to hit what was thrown. I think the first 4 innings were scoreless because we just couldn't hit the ball.

It all finally started coming together and we managed to bring in a few runs and win our first game of the season. I'm waiting on Matt to get back to me with the final score, but I would have to say it was around 6-2. As soon as I get it confirmed, I'll post it here and in Our Schedule over to the right.

I hope everyone enjoys this and is able to take advantage of it. If you see anything that should be changed, or if you think it would look better a different way, let me know.

See you all next Tuesday!
