On the August long weekend (Aug 3 – 5), Sooke’s Slo Pitch hosted an Invitational tournament.
“Tournament went really well actually,” said Jason Dumont in conversation. “I had quite a few compliments.”
In the past, said Dumont, people have always found little things that weren’t quite right. This year, the event went off without a hitch. Even the weather cooperated.
“Overall,” Dumont summarized, “everyone said they really enjoyed themselves.” Fourteen teams walked away with cash prizes, and the other winners received sundry prizes.
This year, 32 teams participated. Five were men’s teams and the rest were mixed. Next year, Dumont would like to get the numbers of participating teams up to 40. And when you can give your team a name like Yard Bomb or Foggers, what’s not to like?
Following are the winner’s lists for all divisions.
- Long Horns
- Anything is Possible
- Big Rock
- Yard Bomb
- Scared Hitless
- Drunk in Public
- Fool Ballz
- Half Baked
- Westcoast Athletics
- Dukes of Sooke
As for the Slo Pitch league itself, the final standings were as follows:
- A Division: Freaks
- B Division: Lowered Expectations
