Golf, The Fair, Fastball & The Mann Cup


By Fred Wallace


Hi, this is Fred Wallace with Off the Wire.

It's a busy Friday and a fairly active weekend.

Today, the annual Swing Your Sticks for Charity Golf Tournament is being hosted at Legacy Ridge.

While the venue through the years has changed from Scenic City to Stone Tree and now Legacy Ridge, the bottom line remains the same more than 2 decades later- that is local money staying local to assist local people.

Also today, the annual Owen Sound Fall Fair is in full swing and I get my first test as an announcer for Tractor Pull tonight.

Meanwhile, tonight through Sunday the 2017 Bluewater Fastball League Championship Tournament is being staged at Chepstow

Tonight at  7 pm, the Port Elgin Blue Devils face the Tara Merchants and the Durham Dodgers take on the Owen Sound Junior Selects

At 9 pm, it's the Elmwood Smoke against the host Chepstow Aces
plus the defending champion Wiarton Nationals in against the Saugeen Thunderbirds.

Eventually, the 2 surviving teams will meet Sunday afternoon at 2 pm for the Bluewater title.

Finally, the Mann Cup, the Canadian Major Lacrosse Championship Final begins at New Westminster as the Salmonbellies host the Peterborough Lakers.

Adam Jones of Owen Sound is a member of the Ontario Champion Lakers squad.

Have a great weekend.

I'm Fred Wallace
