I just wanted to send everyone a note to thank all of you for a great weekend!! Other than the wind on Friday the weather couldn't have been better.
Vanderhout Flooring took home the Championship over Carson Law in a nail biter. Physio Links Rehab came out on top in the Consolation round over Verway Automotive. Congratulations to the 2 winners!
Everyone seemed to be having a great time and we received positive feedback from everyone. Special thanks to the Board of Directors for the planning and execution of the Tournament. For a first time Tournament Director, Brad Hazeldine did an amazing job. There were also quite a few members who volunteered their time to help with diamond set up and tear down. We also have the late nighters who help the Servers pack up at the end of each day. I want to thank all of you for your help. A special thanks to Mike Drexler for spending both Friday and Saturday night at the park as our security. Mike also donated all of the Auction items which raised money for the Burlington Food Bank.
As for the Burlington Food Bank, we raised $707 from the auction and we expect $120 from the Can Collection!! The Food Bank wanted me to thank everyone again for their food and money donations on Saturday.
I had the honour to present some long service award over the weekend as well. During COVID we had a quite members reach milestones. We had 11 members receive their 15 Year Pins. We also had some incredible milestones. We had 4 members reach 25 years with the BOSL. Congrats to Mike (Moose) Wright, Jeff Chapman, Norm Poyton and Randy Petrie for their 25 years of service. We also had 3 members reach 30 years!! Congrats to Jeff Palmer, Greg Moore and Richard Krummenacher. All 7 of these recipients have either served on the Board and/or Captained for many years. Their dedication to the BOSL is the reason the league is what it is today.
The Board will be conducting a tournament debrief in the next couple of weeks. We acknowledge that some of the scheduling could be improved and we will be looking at it for the Year End Tournament.
I hope everyone recovers quickly from all of the injuries and sore muscles! Thanks again for a drama free weekend. See you out there on the diamond soon.
