The JB Lakers from Buck Lake took first and Plan B from McBride took home second, but all four teams had a great time – and some exciting plays – at the slow pitch tournament in Valemount, part of the cheekily termed “Non-Valemountain Days” weekend.

Above left, Jamie Black, who organized the tournament, also hit some good balls.
