Annual Washer Pitchin’ Tournament Set for Saturday, October 9, at Fort Mason Park
Wednesday, October 6, 2010 • Posted October 6, 2010

Pitch in, pitch some washers, and have a pitchin’ good time! Then eat your fill of Lee McMillan’s world-class barbeque so you’ll be primed and ready for the live auction by Jeff Owen.

Registration for tournament participants begins at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. Don’t have a partner? Don’t let that stop you! Come on down! If you want to pitch and don’t have a partner, we can match you up with one.

The single elimination tournament is scheduled to start at 5:00 p.m. and the cost is $60 for each two-person team. The barbeque dinner is by donation and serving usually begins about 6:00 p.m. Come just for dinner if washer pitchin’s not your thing. The food is great! Then stay for the auction.

The Washer Pitchin’ Tournament is held annually as a fund raiser by the Mason ISD Education Foundation which is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich, maintain, and expand programs to meet the District’s goal of achieving excellence in education. The Foundation’s Teacher Grant program benefits students directly by providing the funds to purchase materials and programs beyond the financial resources of the district. Teachers often spend their own money on support materials for their classrooms.

The Education Foundation Grants Program makes things happen that would otherwise be impossible. It brings in special speakers and demonstrators, extraordinary books for reading programs, history re-enactment programs, hands-on science and math materials, and much more. Materials like this take paper-and-pencil learning and make it come to life for students.
