Northwest Bay beat the Whiskey Jax to win the ‘B’ title while the Brew Jays topped the River Rats in the ‘C’ final.
It was an action-packed and fun-filled weekend for all!

Robin’s 2¢:
A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store.
As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, “Son, can you tell me were the post office is?”
“Sure!” replied the little boy. “Just go straight down this street a couple of blocks and turn to your right.”
The man thanked the boy kindly, then added, “I’m the new pastor in town. I’d like you to come to church on Sunday and I’ll show you how to get to Heaven.”
“Hey, come on now,” the boy chuckled. “You don’t even know the way to the post office.”
