One of the goals of our Executive Committee is to return TAC’s membership level to 200 members (pre-pandemic). Everyone’s help is needed. First, we encourage every current TAC member to recruit at least one new member by our December 2022 lunch meeting.
Contest period: June 9, 2022 to December 8, 2022.
Any current member who adds 5 new members will earn 10 TAC lunch passes, redeemable at future monthly lunch meetings.
Any current member who adds 10 new members will earn their membership dues paid for a year, plus 10 TAC lunch passes.
The current member with the highest number of new members added (10 or more), will receive a TAC ATTAWAY Award and a special prize to be announced at the September 2022 lunch meeting.
Note: To qualify as a “new” member for this contest, the individual… a) Has never been a TAC member b) Was a prior TAC member, but has not been active for the past two years.
New members may sign-up online on our Become a Member page.  There is a field for them to indicate who invited them to join, make sure to remind them to enter your name.  New members may also fill out a hard copy form and mail the form along with a check to the TAC.  The form can be downloaded here.
Good luck!
Tom Names Salute to Sports 2022
The 2022 Tom Names Salute to Sports reception was on June 16 at the Hotel Murano Bicentennial Pavilion.  It was a great evening full of celebration.  The Athlete of the Year committee presented the nominees and winners for the spring season sports, recognized the winners from fall and winter sports, recognized the spring season state champions and presented scholarships to 8 students.  It was an honor to support and recognize the amazing youth that we have in our community.  The event would not have been possible without our sponsors - The Names Family Foundation, Tom & Meg Names Foundation, Columbia Bank, The Ben B. Cheney Foundation, Host Event Planning, Rotary Passport Club of Pierce County and Rainier DMM.  Thank you TV Tacoma for providing coverage and video for the 2022 Tom Names Salute to Sports.

Thank You Letter from Borsheim
My name is Ella Borsheim and I was this year’s recipient of the Sis Names Athlete of the Year award. I feel very honored to be receiving this award and I would like to extend my gratitude for your support. I am not only grateful for the generous scholarship, but everything your organization has done for Tacoma athletes over the years. Your acknowledgment of Tacoma athletes has such a positive impact on the Tacoma community and the lives of students. Running has been a huge part of my life for a long time and has played a significant role in shaping me to be the person that I am today. These last 4 years as a member of Bellarmine Cross Country have been very meaningful and have taught me so much about leadership, work ethic, resilience, and so much more. And while I’ve found some success, I’ve had my ups and downs and have made some mistakes along the way. I really appreciate that you have chosen me to receive this award. It says a lot that you support athletes, despite their mistakes or rough patches in their high school career. I like how you allow people to feel free to pursue their goals without fear of failure, and show them that their efforts can be recognized without perfection. I am so excited to be pursuing my athletic and academic goals at the University of Washington this fall. Thank you so much for supporting me in my future endeavors. While I am leaving for college this fall, I believe that I will always feel connected to the Tacoma athletic community. I hope that at some point I can return some of the generosity that your organization has shown me. Please know that I will continue to make the most of my opportunities and that your generous scholarship will go to good use.
Sincerely, Ella Borsheim

Hey mates, I am so excited to partner with the Tacoma Rainiers and host my NxtGen Baseball Camp in my old stomping grounds Cheney Stadium. Besides my work on Root Sports covering the Mariners, my passion is inspiring the Next Generation. Especially at the grassroots level, and I can't wait to work with your son or daughter this August! We have a great camp planned for every skill level, siblings are 50% off, and all are welcome! I hope you can come and spend three days with the Rainier players and me!
