On Sunday, June 30th, Glenn Carr has scheduled our Bowie
Baysox fundraiser. Please see the
flyer for details about
start time, menu, ticket prices, and contact information. Please

attendance has grown every year.

decided that we will not conduct a golf tournament in 2013. To
replace this, we plan to have a bull roast at La Fountaine Bleue in Glen Burnie on Saturday, Sept 21, 2013,
6 - 11 pm.
Cost will be $40 per person There will be a DJ, dancing, wheels of
chance, 50-50, lots of good food. Invite your friends!
