In brief: Organizers seek senior softball players

THURSDAY, FEB. 12, 2009

Organizers are looking for men age 60 and older to play elite competitive softball in U.S. Senior softball tournaments.

“We have great sponsors. Existing players have earned 20-plus world championships in the past,” said Dave Gunderson. “If you are a team player, can play and are competitive, we want you.”

Contacts are coach Pat Dalsanders at 466-6856, George Quiggle at 710-5243, and Gunderson at 928-7588.


Ice Palace hosting tropical beach party

There’s a beach party Saturday at the Ice Palace at Riverfront Park. Between noon and 5 p.m., hula-hoop contests and games of beach ball relay will help transform the Ice Palace into a tropical getaway.

Wear your best Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops. Skate rentals are free, thanks to sponsorship from Group Health Cooperative.

Don’t forget hats and gloves – or perhaps something warm to change into once the “beach fun” is over.

Call 456-4FUN or go to www.spokaneriverfrontpark.com for information.
