Spring and Summer Fun
As I’ve mentioned before, having been born and raised here in Boulder City, I spent thousands of hours on the ball fields, tennis courts and in the swimming pool. Well, the ball season is upon us.

Player Rating Clinics for kindergarten Co-Ed T-ball are on April 12 and 13 at 6 p.m. and Co-Ed Grades 1 and 2 Coach Pitch are at 7 p.m. at Pratte Field. The Player Rating Clinics for Girls Slo-Pitch Softball grades 3-6 are April 14 and15 at 6 p.m. and Boys Baseball grades 3-6 are at 7 p.m. at Hemenway Field. Adult Softball Coaches Meetings will be held April 13th with the Men’s League meeting at 7 p.m. and the Co-Ed league meeting at 8 p.m.

Did you know that the first lighted ball field built outside of a professional arena was right here in Boulder City? That’s right, with dam workers working around the clock, recreation was a key element in their daily life and baseball was a big part of their entertainment.

The 2010 Damboree Celebration is just around the corner. This year’s theme is a “Blast From the Past” honoring the people who built Hoover Dam and Boulder City. The Grand Marshall will be the 31’ers, their families and the 31’ers Team that is working to preserve the past by educating the future through educational outreach programs.

With the 4th of July on a Sunday this year, the Damboree Celebration will take place on Saturday, July 3rd with the parade, Broadbent Park festivities and a patriotic concert by Red Mountain Music Company. Sunday, July 4th, the fireworks will take place at Veterans’ Memorial Park at 9 p.m. Concessions and activities are still in the planning stages.

It’s time to start thinking about parade entries for the 2010 Damboree parade. Event schedules and parade applications are available at, resources button. There is no parade application fee for entries postmarked prior to May 1st , a $25 fee applies to entries postmarked between May 1st and June 15th. A $50 fee applies to all entries, including non-profit organizations, if postmarked after June 16th and are accepted if the script has not been finalized.

The Damboree Committee is seeking monetary donations for this year’s Celebration. For more information or to get involved with this event, please feel free to e-mail me at
