    BARRE TOWN — With a three-day coed softball free-for-all set to start at 6 p.m. today, players and spectators are encouraged to treat Freezing Fun for Families’ benefit tournament as something of a photo opportunity.

    The Times Argus will be taking plenty of its own photos, but this is a long tournament, and it would be great to be able to publish reader-submitted photos in a future edition to capture the full flavor of an event that features both day and night games and literally changes with the weather.

    All you have to do is email your images to timesargusphotos@gmail.com and we’ll take it from there.

    A total of 68 teams will be participating in the double-elimination tournament at the recreation fields behind Barre Town Elementary School.

    Play will be briefly suspended tonight for a 9 p.m. fireworks display and will continue under the lights late into the night.

    Games will resume first thing Saturday morning, and organizers are hoping the championship game will be played early Sunday afternoon.

    Proceeds from the tournament and series of recent fundraisers — an estimated $30,000 — will be split by the families of Ashley Church, 16, of Colchester, and Jasmine Paye, 15, of East Ryegate.

    Church was diagnosed with leukemia the day before Thanksgiving, and doctors discovered cancerous tumors on Paye’s spine in July.
