The Jamestown Jammers putting on the Ritz

The date for the annual soirée in Jamestown, NY has been set, along with this year's guest speakers.

It's that time of year again for the Jammers annual hotstove banquet. The Jammers would like to announce that our Fourth Annual Winter Hot Stover Dinner & Auction is scheduled for Monday January 21, 2007 at the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club. This year's speakers are former Jammers and current Florida Marlins Brett Carroll and Dan Barone. This year's beneficiary will be Compeer, a mentoring program which benefits local area children. We have a wonderful weekend planned. To start off, on Friday, Jan. 18th will be Jamestown Jammers night at the Jamestown Vikings hockey game. Come down at meet Brett and Dan and welcome them back to Jamestown. Brett and Dan will also be instructing on weekend baseball Clinics.


Festivities will kickoff with a social hour at 5:00 pm (including a cash bar, and hors d' oeuvres). Dinner will be served at 6:00 pm and will include stuffed chicken breast, pasta, salad, dessert, and coffee. A child's (12 and younger) dinner will be offered this year (chicken fingers and fries). The bidding in the silent auction will start right at 5 o'clock, and winning bids will be announced at the end of the evening. A 50/50 raffle will also be held and numerous door prizes will be given away. We will finish the evening with our famous live auction items. Our premier items will be auctioned by Mike Peterson. All reservations must be in by Friday, January 18, 2008.

If you are anyway near the Jamestown area or plan to be, you may want to put this on your list of things to do.

While I have never heard Brett Carroll or Dan Barone give a speech, it is quite possible they are very good.  If not, they do have a cash bar at the event.
