 To the SoB Membership,

Thank you for being patient as we've worked tirelessly with the Union FO, and the Phila. Union Foundation on this year's RiverCup.

As you've seen there have been many changes in personnel within the FO, but also within the Foundation.  Many events and efforts have had to be rearranged or postponed due to these changes.  The proceeds of RiverCup have always been to benefit the PUF, and with the cost and manpower associated in putting on this event, it has overwhelmed all parties involved to do so with lack of attendance & volunteer assistance.  Additionally, the fields at Talen have had other events which have left them in poor conditions for our players.  

The FO and the Union Foundation want to communicate we are not "getting rid" of the RiverCup.  However due to all of the reasons listed above, 2016's RiverCup will not be able to be held.

Our hope is to reconvene with the addition of more time to host the RiverCup early next year instead.  Bill Gusler and I are hoping this reignites the passion behind River Cup and brings a concerted effort to make this happen again.  We understand and share in your disappointment & will continue to work on this with all involved parties for 2017- our 10yr anniversary.

Thank you for being a part of this tradition, we hope to see you next year.


Bill Gusler & Ami Rivera

SoB Committees

The Sons of Ben Board of Elders will be establishing a pair of committees, Events and Game Day. They will include SoB members who won't just be volunteers, they will have active roles in both what the committees do, and how they do it.

The Events Committee will handle tailgates, roadtrips and special events. The Game Day Committee will include Tifo and capos.

By being involved in a Committee, a member will meet regularly with the Directors for planning, be available to participate in the activities planned, have individual responsibilities assigned to them, and have a voice in how the committees get things done. Again, they would not simply be volunteering or "helping out", they would have a formal, ongoing and active role in the operations of the Sons of Ben.

In order to become involved in a Committee, you must be a Sons of Ben member in good standing, and offer a brief description of your history in community and organizational involvement (within or without the Sons of Ben). You should also discuss which areas you feel you would be most helpful in, for example event planning, scheduling, etc. The Committee Directors will review all submissions and make final decisions. We are looking to have at least 5 members on each Committee, with the possibility of more being added, based on need.

Submissions will be accepted until 12am, Saturday July 23rd.

Those interested in participating should send that information, along with any questions they may have to
