24 Feb 2008
Join us to celebrate the 80th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, February 24 at 8:00 PM at the Waterfront Bar Louie in Homestead, PA. This free event is open to anyone – from producers to directors to those who just enjoy watching movies.
The event is being hosted by Bud Adams, president of Adams Innovative. He is a huge supporter of Pittsburgh film production and hopes to use this event to promote continued networking among those interested in film. “I believe everyone should be supportive of our local film office,” Adams explains. “However, sometimes high costs can be prohibitive to some artists. This celebration is designed to be an alternative place to interact with like-minded people while celebrating the film industry.”
Bar Louie has been the site of two previous Oscar parties. They will have Oscar-themed specials, which will be forthcoming. In addition, Bar Louie will have $2 drafts and ½ price appetizers starting at 10:00 PM.
Additional sponsors are being added to this event daily. Visit www.adamsinnovative.com/oscars for the most up-to-date information.

2008 CAC SUMMER CO-ED SLOW-PITCH SINGLES SOFTBALL LEAGUE

Are you interested in summer socializing, exercise and some fun?
Then we have just the thing for you! Each year CAC organizes a spring-summer co-ed softball league consisting of 7 or 8 teams, with weekly games played every Sunday, beginning in April. Games are played on the VA Medical Center softball field near the Highland Park Zoo. We have some returning and new coaches this year, both female and male.

After the game, we gather at a local bar/restaurant where we talk, eat, and have some post game fun. The entire season is then followed by our annual sports picnic in September where we gather to share a good time.

Our league attracts not only CAC members, but many non-CAC members as well. The league is focused on fun. PEOPLE OF ALL SKILL LEVELS ARE ENCOURAGED TO JOIN, even if you have never played before. Teams are put together using a draft system. Please fill out your application completely (which can be found at www.cacpittsburgh.org or contact Meredith) as players are placed in rounds based on their application. The coaches then draft a player from each round. We have league practice / pick up games on Thursday evenings.

The cost is $35.00 for CAC members, $40.00 for CAC Alumni and $45.00 for non-members. This includes a team shirt and September catered picnic. You must be single and over the age of 21. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. If enough players sign up before the deadline, all additional applications will be placed on the waiting list. All players qualify for league play regardless of softball ability, and if you show up for your game on time, you are guaranteed to play. There will be no refunds after a player has been assigned to a team (mid March).

If you have any questions please call: Meredith at 412-683-8082, or Email mp22gap@yahoo.com
