Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
We talked about Minor Lacrosse yesterday with the annual Owen Sound Father's Day Weekend Tournament coming up this weekend.
It's a BIG event.
There's another BIG lacrosse event today, this one being conducted outdoors.
The Owen Sound Girls Field Lacrosse program is holding " Rock Night " at the Victoria Park fields tonight from 5-8pm.
Rock Night is a " Thank You " from the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League to the Owen Sound program who sold over 600 tickets to the home opener for the Rock this season.
600+ tickets !!!
Tonight, as part of that " thank you ", Roby Hellyer, Adam Jones, Brad Kri, Challen Rogers and Nick Rose of the Toronto Rock, along with former captain Colin Doyle who is quite invested in the local Girls program as a coach & instructor. will participate in the weekly Girls Under 13 House League Night at Victoria Park.
There are a number of activities on the agenda tonight including a barbeque, autograph session & special draw, but without question, the highlight will be the dispersal of the Rock players as " guest " coaches for each of the 6 teams in the Under 13 Division.
You can appreciate the Toronto Rock saying " thank you " to the Owen Sound Girls Lacrosse program for their Opening Night ticket drive.
And you can appreciate the Owen Sound Under 13 Girls saying " thank you " to the Rock professionals who are giving up their time to participate in a grassroots event.
Truly, it's a BIG lacrosse night in Owen Sound
I'm Fred Wallace
