Annual slo-pitch tournament tradition continues in Byemoor

Thirty teams participated in the weekend tournament.

This past weekend, from Friday to Sunday, Aug. 18-20, Byemoor was packed with trailers and campers, as people travelled from Camrose, Three Hills, Stettler, Big Valley, Rumsey, Morrin, Drumheller, and Hanna to participate in the annual slo-pitch tournament, which has been a mainstay of the community for a long time.

“It was a busy weekend with pancake breakfasts on both Saturday and Sunday,” said Bobbi Buchwitz, one of the main organizers. “We also had fireworks on Friday, and on Saturday there was a parade and a kids’ carnival, followed by a dance later in the evening.”

Buchwitz said that the weather helped, and everyone had a great time.

“The weather was great, and we had a lot of volunteers to make this weekend a huge success,” Buchwitz added.

The winners were as follows.

A winners: Dirt Bagz from Camrose

B winners: Upper Deckers from Endiang

C winners: Wacky Wasdals from Byemoor/Endiang

D winners: Half Sox from Big Valley
