Great team builder in Pasco

This weekend was a great opportunity for many players to learn from the college coaches running the camp on Friday, then getting to play in front of them on Saturday and Sunday.  A number of coaches took interest in many Bellevue Blast players.

Saturday night dinner of grilled tri-tip was outstanding as always on trips to the Tri-Cities.  Many pictures have been posted to Facebook in an album, but here are a few from the weekend.  More will be added to the Facebook album as they get edited and posted.
