DALLAS TWP. — The 2016 Dallas High School (DHS) Lock-In Committee will host its inaugural Wiffle Ball Classic on Sunday, May 1 with a rain date of May 15.
High school students, teachers, administrators, police, fire, EMA/EMS departments, as well as the local business community are all invited to register teams.
The fundraiser will take place on the high school baseball field, located between the high school and middle school.
The tournament requires 24-32 teams comprised of five to eight players. Four fields will be utilized for half-hour games and the event will follow double elimination (five innings of three outs per inning).
Entry fee is $30 per team; teams should have T-shirts with team name (team sponsors are welcome). There will be champion and second place medals awarded. This year’s winning team name will be the first to be engraved on a community plaque.
The event was proposed by Dallas Township Police Chief Robert Jolley in support of the graduation night celebration.
The annual DHS Lock-In is a drug, alcohol and tobacco-free graduation night party that treats the new grads to a special last night of fun and games with their classmates before continuing on with the next chapter of their lives. The committee is tasked with the raising of all funds and planning for the lock-in event.
Team sign-ups are presently underway and will be accepted through April 22. Registration form requests and/or questions should be directed to DHS Lock-In Co-chair Trudy McAndrew, at 570-852-9205. Registration forms are available at the Dallas Township Municipal building, at 2919 State Route 309 Highway (above Thomas’ Market), in Dallas; or, can be requested via email, at [email protected]
