God's Pit Crew

At this meeting we will be pledging our help and support for all victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. At the meeting, we will collect personal supplies and items for one of our local (Danville, VA) disaster relief organizations, God's Pit Crew ( This organization does what they call "Blessing Buckets" filled with items designed to comfort the individual or family (toothbrushes, washcloths, wet wipes, sanitizer, etc.) Here's what goes in a Blessing Bucket:

Please consider bringing these items to donate at our meeting. If you would prefer to give a cash donation instead or in addition to the personal items, there is a place while you are registering to do so, or you can bring your cash or checks to the meeting.

Players aim for 11 giant dartboard-like targets on a 215-yard outfield. The farther the shot goes and the closer to the pin, the more points the player receives. Each Topgolf venue features climate-controlled hitting bays for year-round play, food, beverage, music and hundreds of HDTVs on which various sports games are shown, such as football, rugby and boxing as well as golf.
