Opening Week Notes

Greetings, BYB Families -

Our opening week of regular game play has commenced, and starting tonight we will have a full parking lot at the complex!

Please remember the following parking guidelines:
~ When driving through the parking lot - please drive slowly - as there are many children darting back and forth across the lot.

~ As you enter the lot, stay to your right, so that it is one-way driving through the main lot (east-bound traffic on south side/west-bound traffic on the north side). You may park straight north/south on the south side as well as in the middle row (2 cars deep in middle row). On the north side - do not parallel park - park at an angle, facing north. That will allow traffic to continue to circle around, but allow more people to park.

A few general reminders:
~ Concessions will be open from 5-9 pm. Menu and prices have been posted on team walls and FaceBook.

~ Weather - We will post weather cancellations as soon as we can - but no earlier than 4:15 pm. We have an alert box on the team portal home page - and they will be posted on FB, as well as texted to all families through our EasyAlert system. NOTE - For the most immediate notifications - please log into your siplay account, and enable text/sms messaging for all of your cell phones.

Some Fun Notes:
~ The Bismarck Larks mascot may be wandering around the complex on Wed or Thurs night of this week. If you see him, be sure to give him a high five!

~ If weather cooperates, on Thursday evening, you may see a drone flying around the perimeter of the complex, and above the fields. Please don't be alarmed - we are going to be filming some video of opening week to post on our web site. The drone will not fly down onto the fields, do close-ups of players, or interrupt play. But, if you do happen to see it, and you want to wave at it - you sure can.

Thank you for being a part of Bismarck Youth Baseball - we hope that everyone has a great season!
