Last season, the Manchester Police department was crowned the champion for the 2nd straight year as they swept the recreation department and school system teams. The night’s fun and festivities, along with a LOT of good-natured self-promotion, will get underway at 6:00 PM. Come on out to support this great cause as Thunder Radio will be on hand to broadcast all the action. Lucky Knott and Rob Clutter will bring you the call here on Thunder Radio.
