let us know that they love coming up here to play softball," said Ray

Emerald, Chairman of the Gold Rush Board. "We're excited that we'll

have such a great turnout for this weekend. This is a big fundraiser

for us, and it's great to see that softball is getting back in the

picture in such a big way. This tournament will be a lot of fun and

that's what softball is supposed to be about.

"I'd love to see our local residents come out to support the Sierra Gold Rush players."

"We're just trying to further promote the sport of girls' fastpitch

softball," said Tournament Director Lani Conklin. "We'd love to have

the community come out to support the kids."
