All Chicks tournament in Glenora this weekend

As always, the annual All Chicks softball tournament at the Glenora ball fields promises once again to be a good time.

The 2014 tournament, which runs this Saturday and Sunday, includes 10 teams in two divisions, with squads from the Cowichan Valley, Victoria and Campbell River in attendance. Run by the Gord Closson Forest Products Fastball Club, the tournament will benefit the Dragon Divas dragon boat team, and possibly other deserving groups. Games take place on Saturday at 8, 9:30 and 11 a.m., and 1:30, 3, 4:30, 6 and 7:30 p.m., on Friday at 8 and 9:30 a.m., followed by playoff games. The final goes Sunday at 4 p.m. Organizers are raffling off a 2006 Pontiac, sponsored by Bow-Mel Chrysler, with the draw to be made the following weekend at the Gord Closson Fall Classic. Only 200 tickets are available, at $50 a pop.
