A synopsis of the 2011 Hot Stove Banquet, held at Eagle Point Lodge this past Saturday, is online now at LumberKings.com. Through ticket sales, a silent auction and a raffle, we were able to raise over $1,700 to benefit the Friends of Riverview Stadium non-profit group.

Thanks to all the fans and supporters that came out, it was definitely the most fun of the three banquets I’ve hosted. While we’re due to get another blizzard here in Clinton, I can feel the season just around the corner.
Menchaca’s LumberKings will take the diamond in just 66 days. Believe me, there’s plenty to do here in the office before then!
