Boys of Summer 2006

July 5, 2006

Denmark, WI

July 7-9
Denmark, WI

The 6th Annual Boys of Summer Open tournament is only a couple days away
and the anticipation is brewing high to go with the forecast. The
temperatures are supposed to be approaching 90 each day this weekend with
a slight chance of rain later on Sunday. It is Wisconsin and the
weathermen "have trouble predicting darkness after midnight" according to
one of the locals.
As you know due to tremendous response in the offseason we have expanded
the tournament to 16 incredible teams and has been dubbed the "mini-World"
by many. We've added a 3rd diamond for 7 games on Saturday and one
playoff game.
I invite all fastpitch fans to take this one in as it proves to be one of
the best. Circle Tap is a tremendous sponsor of fastpitch softball on
both the ISC and ISCII level for 12 years and will play host to this
outstanding event. The Circle Tap diamond has that old school feel back
from the barnstorming days, so I'm told, as it's set in the country with
trees in the outfield and a cornfield in the distance. Couple that energy
with a beautiful modern tavern a few steps away and you have all you can
ever ask for at a ball park. Any of your favorite drinks and a large menu
of food can be consumed as you take in the games through the large glass
windows or hanging out on the deck, or catching some rays in the
bleachers, or still yet under a shade tent down the 1st base line. If you
can't make it the 20 steps into the bar there will also again be a beer
garden, can beer this year, near the 1st base dugout. New this year will
be a DJ in the bar both nights for your after game entertainment.

I'd have to say that is one of the finest and deepest field of teams I've
seen in an open tournament. I've received a tremendous amount of e-mails
from fans from around the US and Canada so we're anticipating the largest
crowds ever spread out over the 3 diamonds. Thank you for all of your
support and interest it makes putting this monster together all that much
more enjoyable. Brilliant fans and great teams make a great event.
Locations-I've received many e-mails looking for directions. Green Bay
houses the nearest hotels as Denmark is a town of only 2000 people but
luckily only 15 minutes from Green Bay and directly located on a freeway.

To Get to Circle Tap from Green Bay- Take I-43 South 12 miles to the
Denmark exit take a right out of town, go 2 miles to highway NN, take a
right and CT will be 1/4 on your right.

To Get to Denmark Diamonds from Green Bay- Take I-43 South to Denmark exit
and take a left into Denmark. Go through stop sign, down the hill and you
will see an M&I Bank in front of you with a big digital clock. The Upper
Memorial Park diamond is directly behind the bank. The lower diamond is
found in the same park, just follow the right field line about 50 yards.

Please let me know if you have any further questions
