2013 Tournament // Winnipeg, Canada
Your Winnipeg Host Committee bids you farewell and trusts that you and your teammates had a great time at the 2013 International Jewish Men’s Slo-Pitch Tournament. We hope your visit to our fair city was a memorable experience and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you all once again at a future tournament.
We hope that the hotel, the food and the entertainment were up to the standards the participants of this tournament have come to expect and that we perhaps raised the bar a little with our entertainment. For those that had not experienced our “Hub” facility at Blumberg, we trust it was a treat, along with the field lunches of Salisbury House and the Saturday “Taco in a bag” snack!! The on site Physio and Massage Therapists seemed to be well received as well. In every instance we attempted to provide you something a little different than the norm, a bit above and beyond, from the full buffet breakfasts to the nav systems in the vans, we hope that we were able to provide that little extra you would all appreciate.
The last time the tournament was hosted in Winnipeg was 2004 when the Toronto Gamblers beat Minneapolis 11-5 and Montreal Rothpan beat Chicago Waste Management in an offensive battle in horrendous conditions. The score in that semi final was 39-38!! The Gamblers prevailed that year over Chicago winning the Championship 22-10. In a coincidental twist of fate, this year Chicago, after beating the #1 seed in the semi finals, prevailed over their opponent in the finals, Hamilton Hess 10-6, to take home the trophy where it will rest until we all meet next year in the Windy City.
Thankfully Mother Nature was more cooperative this year, providing us with some beautiful sunny days and just a sprinkle of rain, but not enough to dampen any of the great action I saw on the ball fields.
Having missed the last Chicago tournament, I along with my committee and the rest of the participants I’m sure, look forward to Chicago next year who no doubt will host an awesome tournament.
We look forward to seeing you in the Chicago next Labor Day!!
2013 Winnipeg Host Committee,
