Eleven local ladies with players from Veteran, Camrose, Hardisty, Amisk, Cadogan, Bodo and Provost and three coaches along with a few fans are flying to Auckland, NZ to compete for a medal in the +45 softball division.
The Silver Bullets competed in Australia when they hosted World Masters in 2008, bringing home a bronze medal. losing only onegame out of the 13 games played.
The 10 day long tournament will cost us as a team more than $75,000 and the team has worked hard to raise as much money as possible through working different community events.
The team is responsible to bring an umpire and fund those expenses also.
We’ve been blessed to have a few companies step up to the plate and sponsor our uniforms, and hats.
We want to thank each of these sponsors who have helped around the way. We will be proudly hanging a sign with our sponsors names at the diamond as we play.
