B'ville Optimists' hoops contest

The Baldwinsville Optimist Club will hold its fourth annual basketball foul shooting contest from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday April 10 in Baker High School Gym number one.

The contest is open to Baldwinsville students, both boys and girls from 9 to 15 years old. Prizes and trophies will be awarded to the top five shooters in two categories, those under five feet tall and those five feet tall or taller. Those under five feet tall get to take their foul shots one yard closer to the basket.

Practice and late registration is from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. that morning. There can be no late registration after 10:45 a.m. and no late participants after 11 a.m. The contest will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Pre-registration is preferred. Students can pre-register by e-mailing their first and last name, age, school and approximate height to ddvarn@msn.com or send the same information through mail to Donald D. Varn, Foul Shooting, 2222 Mercer St., Baldwinsville, NY 13027.
