This slow pitch tournament in support of Children’s Wish Manitoba will be held at John Blumberg Softball Complex September 15th to 17th, 2017.

Date: Sept 15-17, 2017
Location: John Blumberg Softball Complex
Cost: $100 per team (includes 15 weekend pass wrist bands) plus $900 in donations/sponsorships
To Sign up:
Team captains register their team for a $100 fee, that fee is non-refundable but also goes towards the team fundraising minimum goal which is $1000. Once a captain has registered a team, players will be able to join the team and begin fundraising. Teams must raise $1000 to be eligible to participate in the tournament. $1000 may sound like a lot, but if you break it down, a team of 10 players makes it $100 each, 15 players reduces it to $66.67 per person.
The initial $100 registration fee is tax receipt eligible, and anyone who makes a donation to support a player of $20 or more will also receive a tax receipt.
Teams that reach the $1000 minimum fundraising goal and are eligible to play in the tournament will receive 15 weekend pass wrist bands, additional weekend wrist bands will be available for purchase at a later date so that friends and family can get in on the festivities.
Register by May 31st to be entered to win a team party at KingsHead Pub!
