Brigade Day!
Sat Jul 08, 2023, 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Location: Errol Russell Park, Sarnia
Dear Sarnia Brigade Family,
I am sending this letter regarding our plan to host a Sarnia Brigade Family Day at Errol Russell ballpark on Saturday, July 8th, (July 9th rain date). Please don't book anything for your team between noon and 6 pm during this weekend as we want your team available to participate in, and experience this opportunity. 
This event will be a fun day for all of the minor baseball teams within the organization which will be headlined by a showcase game between our Sr. Brigade and 22U Brigade at 3 p.m. The idea is to pack the park, with current Brigade players along with Braves alumni, to create a fun atmosphere for everyone who attends to celebrate our rich Sarnia Braves history, current Brigade players and the great game of baseball that we all love so much! There will be activities for the kids between noon and 3 p.m., including wiffleball, skills contests and other activities that will continue during the game to keep the kids active. This day will also highlight our top level talent that we have within the organization, and will be a memorable day for all of those in attendance. 
Some background information for how this event came to be; Ian Brydges, a long-time supporter of the organization, both player and coach, recently passed away of cancer in January. While Ian was in the hospital battling cancer, he came up with the idea of The Brigade Family Day. He planned out this day in hopes of making it to the event but unfortunately was unable to beat his illness. This day is being strategically planned out to fulfill Ian's last wish and his wishes are that as many past and present Braves/Brigade members as possible be in attendance to share this special day as a whole organization. Coaches are asked to plan accordingly at their upcoming league scheduling meetings. Understandably one team already has a tournament booked for this weekend but we would greatly appreciate all the other teams to avoid scheduling anything during July 8th and 9th (noon-6 p.m.) to participate in the first-ever Sarnia Brigade Family Day.
