The Grand Pacific had a number of first time accomplishments from 1st 25’s to 1st 300 straights and 1st time reaching the 27 yard line. All of these were recognized with a patch and/or a pin. First 100’s, 200’s, 300’s and 27 yard accomplishments are listed in the annual PITA Averages & History Book (a.k.a. Yearbook). The 2019 Yearbook will also include all the Grand Pacific winners, Rookies and many photos taken during the 2019 year. Be sure to order your copy when you renew your membership or if you have already renewed just use the renewal form and order just the yearbook.
