Slo-pitch season in Invermere underway

Adult recreation slo-pitch softball is well underway for the 2012 season with new nets and players benches.

Adult recreation slo-pitch softball is well underway for the 2012 season, with new netting in place to protect the buildings and vehicles from the home-run hit balls.

Special thanks goes out to the Lions Club for the funding request for the new nets and players benches. Thanks to all the terrific guys who installed the power poles and netting. Thanks to RDEK for organizing and arranging for the work to get done. And a big thanks to our maintenance crew, Phil and Cy, for taking the time to help out and all you do for our league.

With a big Ball Fest tournament coming up this summer organized by Fundamental Events, we hope to see the Columbia Valley communities  involved and attending on the weekend of July 20 to 22. We have new washrooms, picnic and visiting areas. The ball league has fundraisers  this summer as well to make improvements to our Crossroads Ball Park.

Ball club member Scott Dublielewicz, managing coach of the Thursday team Swallows and Tuesday team Mighty Blumpkins, hopes to submit winnings, scores, other league information to the local newspapers to keep the community informed of improvements and changes.

Recreation, socializing, exercise and fun are our goals for the summer league of 2012.
