The Tiki Hut is looking for volunteers to help out in all positions . We also can use substitutes on an "as needed" basis. Special needs for Saturdays and Special Events. Sign Up sheet is posted on the ball field 1 bulletin board.

The softball league is planning on bringing in a truck load of sand/clay mix for the infields later this week and spreading it across both infields.


Diamond 1 will be CLOSED following the last women's game on Thursday (December 1st). It will remain closed until Saturday afternoon. By Saturday afternoon (hopefully) both diamond 1 and diamond 2 will be open and available for practice/play.


WE NEED 10 TO 15 PEOPLE TO HELP US SPREAD OUT AND LEVEL THE MIX ON BOTH DIAMONDS ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2ND. WE WILL ALSO NEED SOME HELP ON SATURDAY TO FINISH UP. WE WILL START AT NOON FRIDAY AND 9:00 A.M. SATURDAY.  Please bring shovels and steel rakes (not leaf rakes) if you have them.


Thanks and see you there...

The softball league is searching for a few good men (and women!) to serve on our regular season field crews. Field crews prepare the softball diamonds the night before scheduled league play, including the post-season one pitch tournament and the occasional Saturday exhibition game. This is a great way to get involved in service to the softball league.


No experience needed. The season runs from the beginning of January to the end of March. Crews typically work three or four days a week every four weeks although that will depend on how many teams we end up with – more teams means fewer work weeks.


Teams are assigned to one of our two diamonds for the entire season. Teams work in the late afternoon the day before games (i.e., Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and occasionally Friday). It only takes about an hour to prep a field. No prior experience necessary.


Interested? Contact Art Smith at (989) 390-0995 or [email protected]

The CP Softball can crushing/aluminum recycling operation is up and running for the season. There are garbage cans labelled aluminum cans only by the dumpster at the Club House. Cans can be dropped off at the can crusher located at the ball park. We also pick up from the containers labelled aluminum cans only at the Rec Hall.


Only aluminum cans, (beer, soda, seltzer, etc) should be placed in these containers! Garbage and other types of cans contaminate these containers and must be sifted through by volunteers. Please do not put anything else in these containers.


Thank You
