HUGE CONGRATS to the Bantam Blazers U16 Fastpitch team, PROVINCIAL CHAMPS! Here's the note that was sent in to THE PEAK today....way to go girls!
The Alberni valley Blazers played nine games over the weekend. They went 8-1 including winning in the medal round 7-4 against the Abbotsford 96ers.
Every girl contributed to the wins, they were all mvp's in their coaches minds.
Coaches Shannon Charlesworth, Liz Shoot, Tony shoot and Richard steed would like to thank all the sponsors, parents and the Alberni Valley Softball Association for their dedication to this weekends event
What a great time for everyone involved, what a great day for the charities that benefit from everyone's generosity - over HALF A MILLION dollars raised by this tournament now, which is just plain incredible...and yes, it was quite the night for me as I was lucky enough to WIN A BRAND NEW SET OF GOLF CLUBS!
We played poorly for the most part, but we each had a shot or two that made the rest of the team cheer, which is what it's all about in a fun tournament like this. Mira made several long putts...I didn't drive for show as much as she putted for dough, but who cares, we had a blast!
Van Isle Ford hole.
That's owner Will Pullford in the picture above...don't let the good form and direction of the ball fool you as that baby is about to fade to the right rough...I would like to say SLICE but that wouldn't be fair to Will!
Here's how it worked on this hole - everyone that played in the tournament got one entry on a new set of Cobra Ricky Fowler Golf Clubs. Anyone who elected to try and "Beat the Car Dealer" (as opposed to "Beat the Pros" on the other Par 3's with Bruce and Brian) would make a donation to the Charity Classic that would give them a SECOND entry into the draw for the clubs, PLUS, if your shot was better than Will's was he would DOUBLE your donation to the charity.
Needless to say I'm pretty happy I elected to beat Will, as at the end of the night I was the STUNNED WINNER of the new clubs! Here's what my little guy Griffin thinks of them....

Huge thanks to Bruce MacDonald, Will Pullford and Cobra/Puma Golf for giving everyone the chance to win...and a huge thanks to Island Radio/93.3 The Peak FM and the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group for supporting the tournament and being so involved that some of us get the opportunity to play in this outstanding event! Last but not least thanks to the members of the Organizing Committee and the Event Sponsors...nothing would happen without you gals and gals giving your time, money, blood/sweat/tears all year long!
Anyone want to go golfing now?! haha!
