Family Activity to Share:  Golfing, fishing in our pond, playing with the dog, chatting about the game in our kitchen when they returned after their games.

Favorite Chinooks Promotion or Contest: Dizzy Bat and Minnow Races

About their experience, Lori says:

“Last spring we went to University of Florida in March to watch a weekend series when two of our boys from the previous summer were playing (once they were both on the field together – one pitching and one in right field). We were so excited! We then went out to dinner with them and their families. It was a very special weekend. “

And . . .

“Our favorite memories are rooting on our boys when they are up to bat and out in the field. It makes going to the games so fun!  It reminds us of when our older children were active in sports during high school and college. We also enjoy discussing the game with the boys after the game and to bring our friend's young children down to the dugouts before or after the games for autographs and pictures. It is priceless to see their excited faces.”
