The Gabriola Adult Slo-Pitch League is hosting its annual tournament June 11and 12. It kicks off with the All Women’s Game at noon on Saturday June 11. Please sign up beforehand for this event. There is a sign-up notice at the concession, and you can sign up for the Home Run Derby, Fast Pitch, and Fastest Around the Bases there also. All the skills competitions have a separate male and female component in which to compete. You must be a member of the Gabriola Softball Association to participate in these events. At 2 o’clock the Rockets play the Thirsty Beavers, and the Surf’s Up play the 420’s. At 3:30 it’s the Stinkin’ Otters versus Team Rocket, and Surf’s Up versus Arbutus. Our annual auction is at 5 o’clock, and features many cool items from around the league. At 6:00 p.m. it’s the Thirsty Beavers against the Wildflowers, and the 420’s against the Islanders.

Sunday June 12 starts with a noon game between the Surf’s Up and Wildflowers, and the Team Rocket against Arbutus. At 1:30, it’s the Otters against the Islanders, and the 420’s against Arbutus. At 3:00, it’s the Otters against the Beavers in an all varmint game, and the Wildflowers versus the Islanders. At 4:30 we have the Home Run Derby, Fastest Around the Bases, and Timed Fast Pitch. The skills competition was a huge hit last year, with about one hundred people watching.

Please come out, watch some softball, have a hot dog and pop at Tannie’s Concession, root for your favourite player at the skills competition, and buy something very cool at the auction. It’s going to be a fun weekend!
