In addition to the ISC Tournament in August, Bernie noted that the Peter Hallman Tournament will be held at The Ball Yard on June 22 -- 24 and invited eveyone to become involved.

The evening's proceedings also included a "Hot Stove Panel" moderated by Larry Lynch (an inductee into the Waterloo Region, OSAS and ISC Hall of Fame and recipient of the KSA Individual Award of Excellence in 2011). 

Topics discussed by the panel included the current state of the game, how to keep the sport alive and viable, how softball enriches life and the impact of hosting the ISC World Tournament in 2018. Everyone is looking forward to the coming ball season and working together to ensure the ISC is, in John Thompson's words, "the best ever".
