We’re in the home stretch for the summer of 2009, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! In fact, the Meridian Parks and Recreation Fall Activity Guide is being released August 15th, so a whole new season of fun activities and interesting classes is just getting started. You can pick up your copy by just opening your Idaho Statesman West Edition on August 15th, contacting Meridian Parks and Recreation to get on our mailing list, or stopping by our office located at City Hall.
One fun activity for the young at heart that will be taking the spotlight starting August 31st is Meridian’s Adult Dodgeball League. The first season in 2008 was very successful, and many more teams have jumped on board for the 2009 season of this unique league. The deadline for the 2009 season has been extended to Friday, August 14th 2009. If you have questions about players, teams, or rules visit our webpage by clicking here.
If you’re participating on a co-ed softball team, whether it be in the Meridian fall league or not, an interesting tournament to check out is the One-Pitch Fall Classic on August 29-30. One-pitch games are a fun deviation from a normal softball game, and the fast-paced style is something I think you’d really enjoy. Visit our Softball Tournaments page to download the registration form and the tournament by-laws.
Two other adult sports on the horizon are the winter volleyball and basketball leagues. The deadlines to register are September 25th and October 9th respectively; however, now is the time to start talking with your family, friends, and co-workers and organizing your team. Co-Ed and Women’s volleyball divisions will be offered, and for our basketball league, men’s and women’s divisions will be available.
For more information on any of these activities or to get your name on an interest list, contact Meridian Parks and Recreation by calling 888-3579 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
