We play in the cold, so veterans don't have to live in the cold!
We do not want to ruin the fields for the upcoming spring season, so we will shift the location of our games to the fields at Signal Rock in North Kingstown. The GPS address is 299 Signal Rock Rd, North Kingstown, RI 02852, and here is a link to the facility
This event is designed to raise money to be donated towards Veterans Inc
, an organization that works directly with homeless Veterans within the state of Rhode Island. Participants of the event play an abbreviated version of Softball double-elimination tournament-style. Veteran Organizations, churches, actual softball teams, and other community members are welcome to attend. The games are six innings each, and the batter steps up to the plate with two strikes to accommodate the number of teams/participants (also, it is February, and we are not athletes). The tournament winner does receive a trophy at the end of the day. The cost of the trophy, balls, spray paint, or any other items do not come out of the money raised; nothing does. The full 100% of the money raised is donated towards Veterans Inc. Each team donates $200 towards the event. Donate to our PayPal page
and on the final 'Donate Now' page at the top under "Add a note," type in Winter Warrior and the name of your team.
The first game starts at 9 am on 12 Feb, and all games will be at Signal Rock fields in North Kingstown. Teams are welcome to seat up pop tents for warming in between games. Free hot cocoa and hot apple cider will be provided.
We are inviting local businesses to join us in our mission to end Veteran homelessness. Businesses that donate are welcome to secure a banner to our fence during the game, receive an honorable mention on our social media outlets, and be mentioned in our newsletter once the event is complete.
