Keep Parkside Ball Diamonds Available to Kakwa Ladies League Slopitch

This petition made change with 228 supporters!


Recently the City of Grande Prairie has decided to close Parkside Diamonds to all adult leagues. This decision was made due to damage of houses in the area and vehicles driving on Resources Road right by the diamonds. Although mixed fun league may be able to crank a home run over the netting set up on these diamonds, that's not usually the case for ladies league. This majorly effects ladies league. Parkside is by far the nicest diamonds for Kakwa Ladies Slopitch to play their games on. If the city moves forward with this idea, the chances of Kakwa Ladies League surviving is slim. Ladies League is important to Grande Prairie more than ever before. It creates a place for ladies to not only get together once a week but to create relationships where we get the chance to build each other up all the while participating in some good ol' fashioned physical activity. 

Another great thing about Parkside Diamonds for Kakwa Ladies League is that there is a playground close to one of the diamonds (and far from the roads) and a lot of the ladies that participate have kids so its a great option to bring their kids along if necessary.

If Parkside is closed to Kakwa Ladies League - It leaves us with either playing Dave Barr diamonds (which are in horrid condition) or raising fees to almost double the amount to try and get in on South Bear Diamonds. 

Please help keep this league going by signing in support! We would like to get as much support as possible prior to the city's meeting on Thursday, June 28, 2018. Thank you
