Pittsburgh Pirates Beat Philadelphia Phillies
at Lincoln DeMolay's 2nd Annual Cookout

PNC Park, Pittsburgh, Pa., Saturday, Aug. 18, 2007 - Three nights during the baseball season, the Pittsburgh Pirates have their annual Skyblast evenings. The evening includes the baseball game with a live band and the largest fireworks display in Pittsburgh.

Lincoln Chapter Order of DeMolay, sponsored by Verona Lodge No. 548 and Plumcreek-Monroeville Lodge No. 799, Pittsburgh, hosted their annual tailgate cookout in a parking lot near the baseball park. The chapter sold 200 tickets to their members, families, friends, other DeMolay chapters and members from the local Masonic lodges. The day included an all-you-caneat dinner. Each participant also received a patriotic backpack souvenir and could bid on silent auction items. The day started off by the chapter organizing and preparing for the cookout, arriving at 3 p.m., when the parking lots open to secure a cookout location and setting up to entertain their guests. Food, fellowship and fun from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., filled the entire end of the parking lot. Then everyone headed into the park for the 7:05 p.m. start of the game.

With the Pirates in last place in their division, they won Thursday night against the NY Mets, lost Friday to the Phillies and won Saturday night 11 to 6. The 38,132 sell-out crowd, including the friends of Lincoln chapter, enjoyed a great game and fireworks accompanied by country music by the PovertyNeck HillBillies.
