The 1st prize includes tickets to a Twins game, an on-field pass for your child to be on the field during batting practice, and 2 nights in a hotel. The 2nd prize includes tickets to a Rockies game and 1 night in a hotel.
A special thanks to Ramkota Companies and Josh Schmaltz for providing the hotel room for the Twins game.
Contact a league board member to buy your tickets. These will also be sold in the concession stand once Majors Division games begin.
Also, Modern Woodman of America is generously agreed to match sales up to $2,500!! These funds will be used to help us make improvements to the complex.

LEAGUE SURVEY RESULTS
Thank you for your participation in the Harney Little League Survey. Please find the attached documents for these results and an explanation of results. Included in these results is an explanation about registration fees and also Capital Improvement Projects.
A couple items I want to address in regard to complex improvement.... Two items that received lots of attention include parking lot repairs and the old Pony field that has been run down for some time. The parking lot is a city responsibility and we have encouraged the city to address this for some time. You will be pleased to know that the city has made significant repairs this fall that I think you will enjoy seeing in the spring.
Also, the field on the corner is not part of the Harney LL complex and we are not responsible for this field. Rapid City High School Baseball is responsible for this field. They do have plans to make improvements this winter and spring. As with many things, high cost of repairs have prevented them from completing much up until now. They have possessed this field for just over a year now. Hopefully we begin to see some good changes soon. HLL is willing to aid this progress in any way we can.
Lastly, I want to stress that HLL also has financial constraints when it comes to making improvements to the complex. Your fundraising potential, ability to contribute your "manpower," and equipment will enable us to make the kinds of changes you want to see.
Making your complex what you want it to be...
The following is a list of projects Harney Little League has completed in the last 5 years...
1. Built two batting cages to help players and teams.
2. Completed some landscaping and seeding around west batting cage.
3. Added sprinklers and seeding on the slope behind the Majors field to replace what had become nothing but dirt.
4. Added about 20 big trees to the complex.
5. Built 3 new backstops on the Majors Field, Minors field and Pee Wee field.
6. Replaced fencing on the Minors field and Pee Wee field.
7. Replaced sewer pipes.
8. Built a new infield for the new Minors field.
With that said there are a number of pressing issues before us, which some of you identified in the recent survey:
1. New or repaired bleachers
2. New or repaired batting shed/indoor practice facility
3. New concessions and bathroom building.
4. General complex and field improvements.
5. Playground for young kids.
All of these, and others are worthy improvements and are certainly things on our radar to improve with your help.
