Senior softball players in Vancouver, Delta Park and Hood View have been asking, “What’s Happening with the new VMSSA field?”
Latest News!! Construction continues on the field the Backstop and dugout areas have been completed as well as the fences down both the first and third base lines the outfield fence poles are in and all fencing will be completed by Friday August 26. The irrigation system is completed and the outfield has been graded and thanks to lot of the senior softball players it has been raked and the larger surface rocks are gone. Top soil has been delivered and the outfield will be ready for seeding by the end of August. You can go to the field page of this web site and view pictures of the construction activity.
The project at Pacific Park will continue to proceed in phases: Phase 1- infield, outfield, dugouts, back stop and out field fencing; Phase 2-Lighting, Artificial infield and other improvements to come later. The budget for Phase 1 is $275,000. We have raised over $266,000 of the $275,000 needed to complete Phase 1. The fund raising committee and the VMSSA board are confident that we will reach the $275,000 needed for Phase 1 within the next few months.
The matching contribution offer is still active which means that any direct donation received will continue to be matched by our very generous supporter up to $100,000. We continue to receive contributions from our players monthly. The fund raising committee is currently working on a signage advertising campaign along with a corporate sponsorship program.
PLEASE continue to help; no contribution is too small. Remember, $20 becomes $40, $50 becomes $100….. $500 becomes $1,000 towards our goal of a new field for all Senior Softball Players to enjoy for years to come.So far we’ve raised $83,552 possible $100,000 in matching funds. This amount is included in the total shown below.
Thanks for visiting the website for the Vancouver Metro Senior Softball Association’s effort to raise money for a new field to be built at Pacific Park. The new field will be used by the VMSSA, but will also be open to everyone in the community. The project will include fencing, topsoil, seeding, irrigation, dugouts and benches, field equipment, scoreboard, and a parking lot for 64 spaces. The VMSSA is excited to be spearheading this great project that will benefit everyone in the community. Thanks in advance for your support.
