The 2016 Father Christmas Cup

Saturday December 17, 2016 at 8:00 AM at the Atlanta Silverbacks Park.

In memory of Major Greg Barney, Frank Hugh Chillemi, Edmundo (Mundo) Campbell, and U.S. Marshal Deputy Commander Patrick Thomas Carothers

“The Father Christmas Cup” is an annual fundraising event held each year in December to benefit a family or families who have recently suffered the loss of a parent. Traditionally a male O-30 invitational tournament, the event recently expanded to include a youth tournament, and this year will expand once more to include a ladies competition.

Adult teams wishing to participate should contact Wade Meyer at wd_meyer@yahoo.com.

Youth teams wishing to participate should contact Neil McNab at neil_mcnab@hotmail.com.
