THUNDERBOLTS Field

We NEED Help! Field needs work!
please read…………..
DIRECTIONS

WE are holding 2019 tryouts and 2018 Fall Ball
Evals/Signups this week and next and it really NEEDS
a lot of work and not a very good terrible reflection on
the program.

8/1/18

We have spent several years developing and
maintaining our field in Glenwood, IL.
It’s a lot of work.
The goal has been and still is to use it for
practice for ALL ages and to play games for
ages 13u and younger.
This field when completed will greatly enable
the ILLIANA THUNDERBOLTS program to grow,
save money on field rentals, and generate revenues
through concessions.

This years excess rain and the minimal time spent
practicing on the field this Spring has created a situation
where the field is over-run with weeds.

WE are holding 2019 tryouts and 2018 Fall Ball
Evals/Signups this week and next and it really NEEDS
a lot of work and not a very good terrible reflection on
the program.

The playing field is part of the Living Springs Church complex. The field is situated just to the south east of the church parking lot. (Cannot be seen from Halsted Ave.)

The Thunderbolts have been practicing at this field since 2012 and have been methodically improving it during that 6 year period to the point where we are VERY CLOSE  to begin  playing  games here.
