Fairbury Girls Softball Prepares for 30th Annual Tournament, Fairbury NebraskaFairbury Girls Softball Prepares for 30th Annual Tournament

May 2016 - The 30th annual Fairbury Girls Softball tournament, traditionally held Memorial weekend, is expected to be the largest in at least a decade. The tournament is scheduled for May 28-29 at the Fairbury Softball Complex. Monday, May 30, is reserved for a rain date.

"The Memorial Weekend Tournament is a long-standing tradition in our community," said Lana Likens, Fairbury Girls Softball president and this year’s tournament director. "It is a great early-season tournament for teams to practice their skills; it is a boost to Fairbury’s economy as it brings many players, coaches and spectators to town; and it is a fund-raiser for Fairbury Girls Softball."

Fairbury Girls Softball Prepares for 30th Annual Tournament, Fairbury NebraskaThis year there are 36 teams registered for the tournament. Likens said that some teams travel each day from home, some teams stay in motels in Fairbury or the surrounding area, and some teams camp in area camp grounds. She said most teams have some down time to check out local stores and restaurants, and many fill up with gas while they are in town.

Likens said with this many teams, it is estimated that there could be well over 1,000 guests in town each day including players, coaches and spectators. 

This year, the Jefferson County Visitors Committee and Fairbury Chamber of Commerce are assisting with programs, which will include a listing of local restaurants and their hours on Saturday and Sunday to help promote local business.

"We would like to thank the Visitors Committee and the Chamber for their extra efforts to help promote local business to our out-of-town guests, and the local businesses for giving them a great experience while in Fairbury," Likens said.

Funds raised by the tournament  help Fairbury Girls Softball to continue to support local girls softball. In addition to supporting the girls softball program, Fairbury Girls Softball has been able to assist the Fairbury Area Softball Association (which maintains the complex) with some complex improvements over the years. Girls Softball has assisted in the improvement of fields, the purchase of a new ice machine, and the purchase of a speaker system, among other things over the past few years, Likens said.

"We are proud of our local program and our complex, and want to continue to see both improve," Likens said.

Likens said the support of the Fairbury Girls Softball families, the Fairbury Area Softball Association (which manages the complex) and the city of Fairbury are important in the success of the tournament. The tournament also receives volunteer assistance from some Fairbury High School students who are required to have volunteer community service hours as a part of the school curriculum.

Tournament schedules are available on Facebook on the Fairbury Area Girls Softball page.
