A deadline of Monday, July 4, has been set. The tournament is expected to bring several hundred people to Perkins. And with that, there are increased opportunities for local businesses to take advantage. "With your sponsorship, this would be a great way to bring more business to our local establishments," said CBA president Winfrey Kinzie. "Sponsoring businesses will be advertised at the ball field through- out the tournament. Many of those who will be coming to Perkins for the tourna- ment will be seeking the locations of such places like restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations." Corporate sponsorships are being sought to help defray some of the costs in hosting the tournament. Those costs include paying for trophies and for the use of certified umpires. Those costs have been i estimated at around $2,000. Donations are tax-deductable and any amount would be appreciated. "Again I want to emphasize your dona- tion will be spent in a responsible and useful manner," Kinzie added. Gate admissions and a concession stand will be other ways to generate revenue. After the expenses are paid, extra rev- enue generated will be used for continued improvements at the park. More specifi- cally, new scoreboards are being planned with the extra funds. A field of eight teams will be part of the tournament bracket. The announcement of who will be part of the field will be made in the near future. The teams will have quali- fied for the regional tournament by virtue of winning their various leagues. This is the first time Perkins has had an opportunity to host such a tournament. But with all the recent improvements made at Dickson Park, it was chosen by the OK Kids Board of Directors. Sponsorship checks can be made pay- able to the Cimarron Baseball Associa- tion. They can be sent to Kinzie at 9102 S. Western, Perkins OK, 74059.
