The twenty first annual Rensselaer Elks Special Needs basketball season is about to start. There will be four teams again this year as the program is growing. There will be two teams of big players and two teams of small players, plus wheelchair players. Thanks to Rensselaer Elks Lodge #2073 for being the sponsor of the league. They pay for the shirts and the banquet at the end of the year. Please return your shirt at the end of the year.

The first game will start at 11 AM and go until 12:15 PM and the second game will start at 12:15 PM and go until 1:30 PM. Please notice on the schedule that all four teams come at NOON on 12/8/18 and 2/23/19. On 12/8/18 and 2/23/19 we will merge the four teams and play for awhile before the party. The finishing time on those dates is 2:30 PM. Linda Baker, Stacia Downey, Gail Freeman, and Kathi Jonas will be in charge of setting up the party as usual. Please see Linda, Stacia, Kathi, and Gail if you can help with the party. Thanks, Linda, Stacia, Kathi, and Gail.

Thank you Burke Adams, Head Committee Chairperson from Rensselaer Elks Lodge #2073!

We're always looking for new players, so if your interested in joining for the 2018-2019 season, please sign up.
