El Jaycee Slowpitch Park, fue el lugar de encuentro de 5 grandes del Softball Venezolano-Canadiense en Calgary.

Caimanes, Orinoco, Vendetta, Trabuco y Caciques, se dieron cita en la Edición 2015 del Torneo de la VCAC. Entre el apoyo incondicional de las barras y las consignas guerreras de cada equipo, se vivió un ambiente competitivo y electrizante.

Fue un sábado familiar, donde todos, chicos y grandes revivieron la pasión, la emoción y el encanto sin igual que tiene la pelota venezolana.

Las bases robadas, los home run, los pisa y corre, las rivalidades y los gritos que se escuchaban en los dogout, aumentaron la febrilidad y la acción que se vivió en cada diamante desde las 9 de la mañana y hasta finalizar con el espectacular out que puso fin al encuentro.

Caimanes, Vendetta, Trabuco, Orinoco y Caciques se robaron el corazón de todos con su apasionada manera de jugar. Gracias chicos, estamos muy orgullosos de ustedes!!!

On Saturday, July 20th, under a beautiful sunny day, the 3rd Annual VCAC Golf Tournament took place at Silverwing Golf course.

A total of 44 players (11 groups) participated during this friendly tournament, which we hope was enjoyed by every single player. I want to thank all the participants for their commitment and exemplary behavior for and during the tournament.

We had 5 ladies, 38 men and one pre-teen (Fernandito Gomez) whom took a last minute player’s place due to injury and helped maintain the 44th spot filled!

We tee-ed off at noon from two different 9 hole courses. And during 5 hours of play there were cheers and high fives all around the golf course. All the groups and individual players were attempting to wind the longest drive, get closer to the pin and sink the longest putt in a chance to compete for individual prizes or simply help his or her team by scoring a low round.

At 6 pm we had our dinner served at the events center and had the pleasure of some golfer’s families joining us during the last stretch of the day.

Every single player took home a participant prize! We also gave away prizes for individual achievements (three ladies and three men) and four teams (16 players) were rewarded with 1st, 2nd, 3rd and a Consolation Prize.

After the BBQ dinner, we proceeded to give the individual achievement prizes to the following players:

Ricardo Tovar (Men Longest Drive)
Jose “Yoyo” Garcia (Men Closest to the Pin)
Alejandro “Pachi” Portillo (Men Longest Putt)
Gabriela Kuppe (Ladies Longest Drive)

In total $600 was collected. Thanks to all the players and families that bought tickets for these wonderful causes.
