Slugout in the Dugout - Democrats Abroad vs. Republicans Abroad!

Hello all!

Democrats Abroad Geneva has an important announcement to make:  In addition to our not-to-be-missed July 4th celebration in Parc des Bastions (posting coming soon!), we will this year be hosting the inaugural 

Democrats vs. Republicans "Slugout in the Dugout" 

- a friendly softball match on Saturday July 3rd. There will be American hamburgers and hotdogs AND American beers and soft drinks for sale for all to enjoy, in addition to what will surely be an impressive display of athletic talent! 

We're recruiting players, cheerleaders, and spectators, so members of all abilities and talents should participate!  (There will be a few informal practice sessions for those who want to play but don't know how, or want to shake off some dust, so definitely don't let a lack of experience keep you from joining the ranks! See below for practice dates.)  We also have custom-made shirts for the occasion (details below), so be sure to order one, to declare your team (and political) spirit!

We hope to see you there!  The more the merrier! RSVP will be required for all!
