Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

TheS­tanstead En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre held its 16th edi­tion of the Friendly Com­pany Tour­na­ment over the week­end, rais­ing over $1,100 for five lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions to share. The an­nual fundraiser al­ways fo­cuses on ser­vices for chil­dren in the area and, this year, gave $225 each to the fol­low­ing: Ray­mond Par­ent’s soft­ball league; Stanstead Soc­cer Club; Jardin-des-Fron­tieres school; Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary School; and Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey.

“We were re­ally pleased with the turnout for the tour­na­ment, we had twen­tyfour teams. We’ve been here for four years and it’s the first time that we were full for this tour­na­ment. We ap­pre­ci­ate all the sup­port from the busi­nesses,” said An­gela Leith, one of the or­ga­niz­ers. “We’re happy to give to the lo­cal chil­dren’s or­ga­ni­za­tions,” she added.

This year’s win­ners of the tour­na­ment were the same ones as last year, only they switched places. The main win­ners were the Hat Trick Hockey Pro Shop team, which won the ‘to­tal pin scratch’ last year. Nanny Doreen’s Day­care, which won the over­all prize last year, this time took the ‘to­tal pin scratch’ prize!

Now is a good time to try out bowl­ing again or for a first time: there are spe­cial prices with the Satur­day Night Fever events ev­ery week­end and dur­ing the school break.
