I am so far behind on this! June 25th was our inaugural 1860's baseball tournament at Land of Memories Park in Mankato. Brad and I were on the radio and had a busy schedule the last few days of the week trying to prepare. The vendors came, the teams came, and so did the rain..BOO! The set up and take down went smoothly and actually the whole day went well with crafts and lawn games for the kids but we were hoping for a better day and better turn out. O well, we received lots of encouragement to do it next year so we will keep at it and hope it blows up by then. I'll post pics later. Oh yea, the Baltics lost against the Arlington Greys and beat the La Crescent Apple Jacks. Arlington beat the Apple Jacks and took home our traveling tropy. As we finished loading up for the day and sat down to have a couple beers, the sun came out...go figure.
