The Kurt Genier Memorial Slowpitch Tournament was held the weekend of June 12 at Barriere Ball Parks.
The tournament in Kurt’s name was organized by the Genier family and volunteers; games started on the Friday and ran throughout the weekend.
Eight teams participated, and by all reports the slow pitch tournament was competitive, fun and a great fundraiser with a silent auction and 50/50 draw.

The results of the tournament were:1st – Chicken Warriors, Kamloops; 2nd – Multiple Scoregasm, Kamloops; 3rd – Rockstars, Kamloops; 4th – Leftovers, Barriere (This is the family team and the team Kurt played on in the Barriere slowpitch league).
