Gabriola Slopitch Association

Adult Gabriola Slopitch will start the season on April 23 and 24 at Rollo McClay Park with their annual weekend tournament. Each team will play three times over the weekend event. We currently have eight teams: The Silver Blue Stinkin’ Otters, The Thirsty Beavers, The Islanders, 420’s, The Surf’s Up!, The Rockets, The Wildflowers, and the Arbutus Long Boards. Each team has their own quirky personality, and are very devoted to their own. Softball really is fabulous fun for the social aspect, as well as the ball playing. The season goes through July 10, with the final game of the double knockout playoffs. Tannie Meyer will be running the concession each night, so come on out, have a hot dog and watch our homegrown talent. Games are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, start time 6:30 p.m. League dues are $50 per player, which is a pretty sweet deal for 21 games, balls, umpiring and insurance. There are sign-up sheets at Arbutus if you would like to join the league. Come out, and enjoy the fun!
