Renegades Ball Game

NY-033 is having a night at the game with the Renegades minor league baseball team.  This will be a great inter-squadron event to get all Squadrons and Staff at a social event and show off CAP.  I hope that all of you will participate in this event. I am looking forward to being there to see us present the colors, enjoy a ball game and see CAP out in force. Please distribute this in the widest possible manner.  Friends and family are invited to join in.  See the attached flyer for more information on how to get tickets.  It is a direct link to the team and we will not be collecting any money for tickets.
