What is the time commitment of the Flames All Star Families for the Billie Sue Tournament?
The 29th Annual Billie Sue tournament on June 9-11 is a Burlingame-hosted tournament, which is a significant event to plan and manage. It is made possible only because of parents and other volunteers from the community, so we do expect 100% participation through a minimum of 6-hours of volunteer activity (field prep, concessions, etc.) per family to support this annual Burlingame Girls Softball tradition.
