This is a clean start-up of a thirty-two season league, with five hold-over owners and three new owners. *** The $ 175 fee for new owners has been reduced to $ 150. ***
The five owners moving to this "new" league are all ACTIVE, RESPECTFUL, and like to ENJOY the season - This is a FUN experience as far as we're concerned.
We'll go with ten teams if need be, but over that would be better.

If Interested, please contact me at "" and I'll get back to you. Thanks, and HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON!
