The Big Val­ley Ag. So­ci­ety held their an­nual Slo-Pitch Tour­na­ment on the June 24 week­end with 24 teams par­tic­i­pat­ing. The tour­na­ment was deemed a suc­cess with the added at­trac­tion of record­ing artists Domi­noe from Stet­tler per­form­ing at the Agriplex Satur­day night. We thank all those who sup­ported this event in any way. Fi­nal re­sults of the tour­na­ment were the Big Val­ley Steal­ers win­ning the A event 18-17 over a team from Red Deer/Clive. The B Event saw the Loose Mitts Limp Sticks of Stet­tler de­feat the Jager Bombers also from Stet­tler in a closely con­tested match. The C Event saw the team Neme­sis de­feat The Brew Jayz from Stet­tler 11-7. In the D Fi­nal the Mound Pounders won over I’d Hit That with both teams hail­ing from Stet­tler as well.

The Fire De­part­ment will host their an­nual tour­na­ment the Au­gust 5 week­end along with a steak sup­per and pan­cake break­fast so please mark this event on your calendar. The Slo-Pitch league play­offs start next week with fi­nals be­ing held on July 14.

At their last meet­ing prior to the sum­mer hia­tus, the Big Val­ley Elks held the Elks rit­ual ser­vice for a de­parted brother. Brother Alan Ber­res­ford was the sit­ting ER (pres­i­dent) whose pass­ing was quite sud­den. Brother Alan Ja­cob­sen gave an ex­cel­lent eu­logy em­pha­siz­ing Brother Ber­res­ford’s past mil­i­tary ex­pe­ri­ence in car­ry­ing out Elk rit­u­als. Brother Ber­res­ford served as District Deputy as well as mul­ti­ple terms as ER and def­i­nitely pulled his weight in all Elk en­deav­ors. His ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment to the or­ga­ni­za­tion will be missed.
