We gratefully acknowledge the City and Borough of Juneau, Geoff Whistler, North Pacific Erectors, Robbie and Van Williamson, Bob Cox, Lisa Baker, and Sara Chambers for their support during the tournaments. We also extend our appreciation to the umpires that supervised games in both hot sun and heavy rain — Tom Karpstein, Nick Borchert, Tom Mayer, David Means, Jody Vick, and John Yots. We thank you all most sincerely. You helped the Little League welcome seven visiting teams and host two weeks of successful tournament play.
