--- 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.

--- Club Archives ---
The present 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.
Last year, some of that material was turned into a computer-based slide presentation that played during the club's "Bud, Spud and Steak" fund raiser as well as during the President's Reception. We hope to have an updated version to share at this year's event. To be able to continue to keep the archives current, the club needs your help.
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 and 2010 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.
The Club also expects that the new scoreboard (see above) will offer new avenues for sponsorship. This could be your opportunity to get in on the ground floor!
