ROOFTIME 27

Hello Rooftimers!

Rooftime 27 is in the books! The weekend was a great success!  Between the 2 days of play, and the raffles, cookies, and gift card promotions, we managed to raise $8,469 for Hudson River Housing.  Combined with the $3,751 raised at Under the Roof 7 in February, the total contribution to HRH this year was $12,220!  Great work everyone! 

Included in those totals was a creative $50 raised by the first annual “hat throwing” pool, which was won at 11:58 AM on Saturday by KJ/Steve Anania.  Also, Trevor and Clara have the honorable distinction of causing the hat throw heard round the world.  Next year’s hat throwing pool will be a little more challenging, now that I’m aware the pool exists. J 

We would like to thank everyone who participated in Rooftime 27 – players, spectators, volunteers, and friends who all donated their time and/or cash to this good cause. 

Before we get to the good stuff, I’ll throw out two interesting ideas that we’ll bat around for next year:

1.      Revco quads.  People love it indoors, why not do it outdoors?  And if we did it on the M/W day, then people who REALLY love revco could play reverse 2 days in a row. 

2.     “Buy a Mulligan”.  Every team gets the option for a single ‘redo’ on one point….  Provided they are willing to donate some cash, of course!  It’ll be cheap at the beginning of the day, and go up considerably as the day moves on.  Lots of details to work out if we’re going to actually do this, but it’s a fun idea! (idea credit to Jim Huenniger) 

OK, now on to the important THANK YOU’s!   Specifically, we’d like to thank:

Frank Sanfillipo – Hudson Valley Volleyball provided nets, equipment, etc. every Rooftime.  We could not do this tournament w/o Frank. 

The net crew:   Jeremy Kempisty, KJ Cecere, Michelle Jacobson, Steve Anania, Frank Sanfillipo, Frank Le, Bria Le, with special guest star Anthony Angelucci*.  These guys (and gals) were all rock stars this weekend… and in particular I messed up by not having enough folks on Sunday, so special thanks to Jeremy, KJ, and Bria for their heroic efforts on Sunday! 

T-shirt and glass design:  We have new Rooftime T-shirts this year (and plenty more for sale if you want some.)  Carrie Frith was instrumental in the T-shirt design!.  Thank you Carrie.  And thank you to Lynher Ramirez for helping to etch the Rooftime glasses!

The front desk crew:   Caitlin Patry, Lauren Wilson, Lindsay Burns.  The most hectic job at Rooftime – thank you so much to these 3!

The cookie crew:  Lauren Wilson, Jaime Zoller, Jeremy Kempisty, Dr. Molly Jenkins, & Steve Anania.  Thanks for some much needed sugar throughout the day!  

The raffle crew:  Cheryl Wilson and Rae Rae, and the Zoller family: Jaime/James/Aiden

Photography:  We had some really nice photos thank’s to Melissa Surprise of Surprise photography. http://surprisephotography.com/.  Thank you Melissa!

Raffle donations – thank you to the Dutchess Bier Café, and to NY Elite. 

East Fishkill Rec Center -  they’ve been very cooperative with our unique event.   Thank you to everyone at the tournament for obeying the park rules!!!
