20 May 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐖𝐈𝐅𝐅𝐋𝐄 𝐁𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐓𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝐍𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐄𝐯𝐞𝐫!
All right, so the 10th Anniversary Vermont Summer Classic WIFFLE Ball Tournament at Little Fenway has been postponed until September 11-12, and renamed the 9 1/2th (yeah, so what about the grammar?). This virus thing has put a real crimp in everything, no doubt. So, what? We’re gonna stop having fun? Ahh, we’ll go with “NO!!” on that one!
Fun is what gets taken away every time someone is diagnosed with T1D. Fun is what we give back to those who had it taken from them. Fun is who we are and what we do!
So, if virtual fun is what we gotta do, then virtual fun it’ll be!
