--- Baseball Manitoba Bingos ---
Baseball Manitoba is assigned some Bingo's every year at the Manitoba Lotteries Casinos as fund raising events. Each of them is awarded to a team or club who provide volunteers as card sellers for the night. That organization earns valuable funds for use in providing players with the opportunity to play baseball. For the past several years, the Elmwood Giants Baseball Club has earned valuable funds from these events and continues to support Baseball Manitoba and our teams in this way.
The Club helped out with several Bingos last year. Once again, the Giants want to acknowledge the contributions of the many volunteers who came out to help.
Anyone willing to volunteer for future events is asked to contact a member of our Board of Directors.

--- Club Archives ---
The Elmwood Giants organization takes great pride in upholding the tradition set out for it by all the people who have preceded us in providing a quality baseball experience for so many young players. A part of that tradition and a meaningful way of keeping the tradition alive is the maintenance of extensive club archives.
If you have pictures, newspaper articles, uniforms or other materials that could be of interest to Giants supporters and alumni, please get in touch with a Board member and let us know how you can contribute.
Right now, we are looking for pictures of the 2009, 2010 and 2011 teams and players. If you have some, please contact the Webmaster and we can make arrangements to ensure they are added to the archives.
The club also has some mysteries to solve. We will be posting pictures of teams and players we are unable to identify. If you can help, your assistance will be appreciated. Watch this space for more news in upcoming weeks.
--- Sponsorship Opportunities ---
The Club executive is always looking to increase revenues through sponsorship. There are many ways in which we deliver our sponsors message to the players, coaches, fans, executive, alumni and friends of the Club. If you are interested in taking advantage of these opportunities, please contact Dave Kodak or any other Director.
