The DBB Bash is an adults-only evening of awesome food, fun music, silent auction and an all-around good time! The Decatur Bulldog Boosters is the single booster club for all sports at Renfroe Middle and Decatur High Schools. Since tax dollars cannot be spent on uniforms, equipment, and recognition awards, the DBB raises funds to meet these important needs of our student-athletes.
Tickets are $25 in advance ($35 at the door)
After you purchase your tickets, you will receive an email confirmation. You will also be given instructions to print your ticket. Be sure to print your ticket or your email confirmation and bring it to the DBB Bash.
When we last discussed, we reported that the Robin Williams signed skateboard deck up for auction as part of the 10th and final year of Skateraid, already had an impressive bid of $2,000.
Well, within a day or so of that report, the bid jumped up to an astonishing $11,000! Great news for a great cause.
Which elegantly transitions to the next topic – the 10th and final Skateraid is this Sunday from 2p-7p in the parking lot behind East Decatur Station! Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. There will be art, bands, food and drink, merch, a scavenger hunt for kids and of course, skateboarding.
Huge congrats and heartfelt thanks to all the families and volunteers who have made this event possible over the last decade, honoring the life of Ian Wochaz, who died of brain cancer back in 2005, and raising funds to support families who are dealing with pediatric cancer.

Hi! Hoping you could do a post about where to watch the World Cup in the Decatur/Avondale Estates area.
Go to it.
From the AJC yesterday…
A Major League Soccer expansion franchise is coming to Atlanta.
An announcement is scheduled for April 16 in Atlanta, a person with knowledge of the situation said Sunday. The Atlanta team would become the 22nd franchise in MLS and would open play in 2017, which is also when the new $1 billion downtown stadium is scheduled to open.

I am writing to ask for the Decatur community to help support the Decatur-DeKalb YMCA Soccer Club’s 98 Wolves Elite U16 Boys team, who have been selected to compete in the 2013 Disney Showcase tournament in Orlando, Florida. Known as the “Proving Ground,” the Disney Soccer Showcase is the ultimate place for top clubs to be seen by hundreds of college coaches looking for great soccer talent. Rated as the No. 1 youth soccer tournament in the United States in a Soccer America survey, Disney Soccer Showcase gives athletes a chance to shine on one of the biggest stages set for youth soccer in this country.

From the front page of the Sunday Times’ National Section and website…
…as the team makes plans to head a dozen miles northwest to a new $672 million baseball stadium in Cobb County, a regional civic conversation has begun: Is the move a blow to a city beginning to enjoy a post-recession urban renaissance, or is it a signal of a new era in which traditional assumptions about the divide between city and suburb no long apply?
…“We’ve got to make a decision — either we’re going to be a region or we’re not,” [Mayor Kasim Reed] said at a packed news briefing the day after the Braves’ announcement. “It bothers me that we have not come far enough as a community that people feel that a team moving 12 miles is a loss to the city of Atlanta.”
