Positive Aquaculture Awareness hosted its 17th Annual BC Aquaculture Slow-Pitch Tournament at Willow Point Park last weekend.
Six teams from Campbell River and four teams from Port Hardy competed – all teams in the tournament have ties to the aquaculture industry.
The Division A trophy, after spending last year in Tofino, has returned to Campbell River to spend a year with the Mainstream Canada team sponsored team, the Maniacs. The team was awarded the trophy after a very competitive final game with the Port Hardy Marine Harvest Canada sponsored team, the Stray Katz.
The B division trophy is leaving Campbell River and travelling to Port Hardy to spend the year with the Marine Harvest Canada sponsored team, Something Fishy.
The Something Fishy team played off the Mainstream Canada sponsored team, Slammin. A great final game was played with the two teams tied throughout the game until the final inning when Something Fishy took the lead.
Delicious BBQ farmed salmon, donated by Mainstream Canada was served on Saturday with proceeds going to Campbell River’s Northwest Shito-Kai Competitive Team. Campbell River Search and Rescue volunteers ran the Tournament Beer Gardens with proceeds going to their organization.
