Mike Conard Cup


Mike Conard Cup

In August of 1992, 19-year old Rob DeGrand, son of Pat DeGrand, and some friends held a softball tournament at the Sugarbush Little League baseball diamond. On August 8, 1992 Rob was killed in a car accident. Months later Rob's friends asked if they could hold a softball tournament in hopes to raise money for a scholarship in Rob's memory.On August 8, 1993, four teams played and raised over $6,000.

Today the softball tournament is a four-day event with 16 competing teams. The winning team takes home the Micheal Conard Softball Cup - named after Rob's 12-year old cousin who died during an accident at his home in 1988 - as well as prize money.

Food, entertainment, games and activities for all ages are offered over the course of the weekend, all to benefit a good cause.
