The organizers behind the dodgeball league known as the Eagle Rock Yacht Club have not only been preparing for the upcoming season but also on forming a nonprofit corporation. Operating as a tax- exempt group would put the league in a better position to support the Glassell Park and Eagle Rock recreation center where it plays. An email from the league provides some details:
“We’ve also just become a non-profit, so, part of the money that comes in from registration goes right back into each rec center we play through volunteering, supplies and cash donations.”
The league is now signing up players for the season that begins Sept. 15 at the Eagle Rock Recreation Center. Every game will be followed by drinks at the Verdugo bar in Glassell Park. Once all the federal paperwork is completed, Eagle Rock Yacht Club players will be able to deduct part or all of their registration fee – but not their bar tab – from their taxes.
