Please come join us on Thursday, May 10th, 5:00pm to 8:00pm at the Masonic Lodge Third Floor Dining Hall (entrance on corner of Rhone and Second). The Dragon's Lacrosse parents and players invite you to join us to raise funds to help the team with new uniforms for next season as well as travel costs. All proceeds from the dinner and dessert auction will benefit the nonprofit Dragon's Lacrosse Club. Many thanks to the Masonic Lodge and the Friday Harbor Athletic Association for their support.
The tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for youths/children and will be available at the door the evening of the event. Dinner will consist of spaghetti, salad, garlic bread and beverages. Bring your checkbooks for our wonderful dessert auction that takes place during supper. There will be fabulous home-baked desserts.
Support your local Dragon's Lacrosse Club and learn about lacrosse by talking to players and parents. Lacrosse, considered to be America's first sport, was born of the North American Indian, christened by the French, and adapted and raised by the Canadians. With a history that spans centuries, lacrosse is the oldest sport in North America. Rooted in Native American religion, lacrosse was often played to resolve conflicts, heal the sick, and develop strong, virile men. To Native Americans, lacrosse is still referred to as "The Creator's Game."
The sport of lacrosse is a combination of basketball, soccer and hockey. Anyone can play lacrosse and the game requires and rewards coordination and agility, not brawn. Quickness and speed are two highly prized qualities in lacrosse. Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States. America's first sport is rapidly becoming one if its favorite sports and the growth shows no signs of slowing. It is also the national sport of our neighbors, the Canadians (bet you thought it was hockey). Lacrosse is sanctioned or recognized by 17 state high school associations for girls' lacrosse and 15 for boys' lacrosse. There were over 12,000 NCAA lacrosse players in 2005, but that is just a portion of the game played at the collegiate level. There are more than 500 club and junior college teams around the country. Organized lacrosse is now played in more than 20 countries on five continents.
