Re: Perth Fastball "Shootout"
Conlon Farm Park - July 17-19, 1998
The Perth "Shootout" Organizational Committee met recently to wrap up
the business arising out of our '97 tournament. The end result was
most satisfying - over $8,000 dedicated to local charities. Combine
that total with the fact that the quality of the competition this year
was outstanding and the "Shootout" Committee were quick to agree -
We're back for another year.
The 9th annual "Shootout" will take place July 17th to 19th, 1998 and
once again will offer world class fastpitch softball.
Negotiations are now underway with several American teams. Also, a
team out of the Maritimes looks promising. Combine that with strong
Ontario clubs and the '98 "Shootout" should be exciting.
Efforts are also underway to include a tour of 2 or 3 Ontario sites
prior to arrival in Perth.
Look for periodic updates on the '98 Perth "Shootout".
