***UPDATE: AIU ANNUAL COVERED DISH FAMILY DINNER***
Due to previous inclement weather we have rescheduled our Annual Covered Dish Dinner for Friday, March 6th at the Smyrna Community Center located at 200 Village Green Circle. We will meet and eat from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. We will be providing meat, bread, soft drinks and coffee. Please bring a covered dish of your choice to share. Please come even if you can’t bring a covered dish. The date will be the night before most of our park programs have Opening Day ceremonies and a schedule of first games, so those new to our group will have an opportunity to meet their partners just before spending a day on the field with them. There is certain to be plenty of good and fellowship for all. We anticipate a good turnout for this evening and seeing all members and their families!

We serve public recreation programs in youth baseball throughout the metro Atlanta area, several private high schools, adult baseball leagues, and the fast growing travel team market. Our umpires are trained annually in basic and advanced umpire skills as well as the rules and procedures for virtually all the various organizations sponsoring youth baseball. Many of our veteran umpires enjoy working tournaments and special events throughout the United States, and several serve as instructors for developing umpire groups in foreign countries. To date we have conducted clinics for 26 National Federations. We also host foreign youth and adult teams in the States and arrange for overseas tournament travel for local teams who wish to play outside the USA.
