True Blue Golf Tournament

NCSO is excited to be hosting the first annual True Blue Birdies and BBQ golf tournament on Saturday, September 6 at Mariana Butte Golf Course. Shotgun Start at 8:00 AM. We would love to have all our baseball family- umpires, coaches, and administrators- come join us for a morning and early afternoon of golf, lunch, and fundraising for a great cause. Lots of prizes and lots of baseball people plus a great course and good grub should make for a really super event. Click here for more tournament information. Hope you can make it!

True Blue is an organized effort by Northern Colorado Baseball and Softball umpires to raise funds- through direct donations, community giving, and fundraising events- for area non-profits providing no-cost and/or reduced fee programs that provide education, prevention, diversion, and programming aimed at keeping area youth active and engaged in positive behaviors.  Click here to learn more about True Blue and our mission and goals.
