The torch has been passed on as this was the final year of organizing the tournament for John “Boomer” McLeod and Terry Seabrook. We would like to thank all the individuals and families who have helped us over the years to make this the BEST tournament around. An event like this doesn’t happen without many volunteers who put the time in to make it a successful event and most want no recognition. So from Boomer and I we want to say thank you and we hope that you will give the new organizing committee the same support.
We will see you next year around the ball park!
Well, the Thessalon Family Ball Tournament has come and gone again but this may have been the best yet. It all started off with the inflatables for the kids on Friday night and that was a huge success as anyone who saw the smiles on the kid’s faces could tell. The kids went from 4:30 until 8:30, non-stop!
The band on the beach was from all reports a nice touch added to an already successful weekend as the band “Thin Ice” put on a great show. The weather looked a little touch and go for a while but everyone seemed to have a great time.
Monday brought the usual high level of ball that we all come to expect as we were treated to some excellent games. From most people that we talked to, they all seemed to really enjoy playing with the wooden bats so the organizing committee has announced that they will be used again next year.
