Attn 12u Players, Parents and Coaches!

We received some crazy news this evening...Newburg Field #2 is NOT playable per City of Fortuna Parks and Recreation Office due to the field being saturated from recent rains.  As a result, all Newburg Field #2 games scheduled for Sat the 30th will be played at Fortuna High School.  No game times are is simply a location change.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause but at the same time so thankful for the people who made Fortuna High School  happen so that we could still play!
