Emeralds Baseball Game

August 20, 2008

This was the third annual, “Obsidian night at the Ems”. And maybe the last one? The event includes a barbeque dinner (hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, vegie burgers, corn, beans, potato salad, watermelon, beer or soft drinks) and a ticket to the game. All this for $18 a person which includes a one dollar trip fee. The episodic rain did not interfere with either the meal or the game which was won by the home team.

Attendance was smaller than the previous two years; 23 paid and 21 attended. Emeralds’ management kindly reduced our minimum number required from 35 to 15 but we cannot count on this in the future. The food was good and plentiful, the beer flowed and civic stadium is a great place to watch a baseball game. Pity that it’s likely to be torn down.

Participants were members: Pat Bitner, Wayne Cleall, Sharon Duncan, Laurie Funkhouser, Kathy Hoeg, Stewart Hoeg, Sam Houston, Sandra Larsen, Ed Lichtenstein (leader), John McManigal, Lenore McManigal, Virginia Prouty, Beth Roy and Christy White; and nonmembers: Keith Christenson, Brian Danaher, Jim Funkhouser, Peggy Funkhouser, Steve Graham, Zac Graham and Dan Kimble.
