The Third Annual Pilot Grove Alumni Weekend is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, August 29 and 30.
Doors will be open Friday evening at the Community Building starting at 6:00 with heavy hors d’oeuvres served – Free will donation. A silent auction items will be available for bidding, and there will also be a few live auction items as well. “We will have t-shirts and commemorative bricks for sale, and we’ll have a trivia contest,” said Angela Meisenheimer. “We’ve changed one thing this year and added a new one! Rather than having the trivia contest “academic team style” with the buzzers etc., we will looking for several teams of four people.  The cost will be $20 per team.  All teams will participate in each round of questions and answer sheets will be scored after each round.   You have probably been to a Trivia Night just like this.”
 Meisenheimer said they have also added a “Color Run” for Saturday morning starting at 10 a.m .at the High School.  Cost will be $10/person plus $5 for the shirt.  
“We’ll finish at the school with lunch, followed by the alumni softball and baseball games,” Meisenheimer said.
In addition, Meisenheimer said:
·Scoreboards have been purchased, courtesy of Citizens Community Bank, and our Athletic Director is working to gathering the equipment and supplies necessary for setting them.  They should be up just any time now.
·We have a commitment from Mid-City Lumber to fund the building expenses of the new concessions stand.
·We have a verbal commitment from a bank (that we’ll name once the agreement is complete) to fund the cost of building the visitor’s dugout for the baseball field
·We have completed the dirt work necessary for extending the fence on the baseball field, and the process for seeding new grass is going on now.
·We have sold approximately 50 commemorative blocks for the Home Team dugout on the baseball field – and we have plenty of room for more.
Meisenheimer said the biggest expense with this project is the new lights.  She said current price quotes range anywhere from $75K - $235K!  
“The issue we face, to do this all correctly, is that we can’t move forward with constructing the new dugouts, moving the fences or moving the concessions stand until we are able to move the lights because they are in the way everywhere we want to go,” Meisenheimer said.  “We are getting closer to reaching a resolution on the lights.  Once we do that, everything else will literally fall in to place right behind it so I feel really really REALLY hopeful that we can have all of this well underway by next Spring’s baseball season.”
