Thank you Allen's Place. This was a another great event and a chance for us to visit Allen's Place. I'm sure that many, like myself, this was their first visit and I was impressed with the facility and the care that owners and volunteers took to ensure safety and fun for all of our participants.
Some photos from the event can be found here: Allen's Place Photo Gallery

Joseph Self was the first player to receive the Brett Workman "I AM" Award in 2015.
Mandy Davis was awarded the 2016 Brett Workman "I AM" Award.
