On August 23, ASA Northwest hosted its 7th Annual Family Fun Night at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, WA. According to Lovell, "It was a beautiful evening to watch the Tacoma Rainiers' 4-0 win on our own private party deck. We enjoyed a barbecue buffet with hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato chips and ice cream bars. We had over 130 members join us at ASA Northwest's 7th Annual Family Fun Night, and it's always great to see the kids get foul balls, laughing and enjoying the game!"
