Milton Public Safety Fund to Hold Charity Softball Tournament

MILTON, GA -- Organizers have announced that the non-profit Milton Public Safety Fund will hold a charity softball tournament on Saturday, Oct. 23 during the Milton Roundup at Birmingham United Methodist Church (15770 Birmingham Highway, Milton, 30004).

All funds from the tournament, which teams may enter for a registration fee of $250, will benefit the City of Milton Police and Fire Departments. Teams are guaranteed two games, said Milton police officer Brian Kiel, who is organizing the event.

"Everyone is invited to take part in the tournament -- co-ed, corporate, public safety, government, recreation or neighborhood teams," said Kiel. "We're hoping for a good mix of all."

Kiel said space is limited, so teams will be first-come, first-served. Players will use a .47 core softball and play on a youth-sized field. As such, there will be a "no home run" rule. The tournament structure will be determined by the number of teams in the event.

City of Milton Offers Fitness Camps

MILTON, GA -- The City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department has teamed with Milton-based CorePhysique to offer affordable fitness camps to residents looking for a healthier lifestyle.

The camps, offered three times a week in three separate sessions, will take place at Bell Memorial Park (15245 Bell Park Road, Milton, 30004) beginning Oct. 18. They will be taught by Kolleen Riddick, a National Academy of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist.

"These camps are safe, effective and they will kick your booty," said Riddick, who is also a Milton resident and mother of three. "The first thing I do is physical assessments. I then tailor the camp to each person's specific needs, so you are not going to get hurt."

For Milton residents, the four week camps (12 full sessions) will be offered at a special rate of $90. For non-residents, the cost is $120.
