LEAGUE CONTACT INFORMATION (UPDATED JULY 19, 2012)

Starting July 23, 2012: Citywide Sports Slo-Pitch's operations will be no more. The existing slo-pitch operations (starting with the upcoming 2012 fall ball season) will be transferred to the VCS League (www.vcsleague.com). Due to pressing career demands and living away from where we played (Burnaby/Vancouver area), I could no longer provide the time and efforts required to continue making things go.

CITYWIDE SPORTS SLO-PITCH (1996-2012) - A SINCERE THANKS TO ALL

As I close out this past 2012 Spring/Summer Slo-Pitch Season, it has been quite a run. Starting in 1996 with 7 teams, we expanded to a high of 30 teams during the 2010 season. In 2007, we started our 1st Fall Ball season with 14 teams, reaching a high of 25 teams in 2010. Since then, we have held steady with 25 teams for our Spring/Summer Season, and 19 teams for our Fall Season. I do believe that Citywide Sports was the first SPN sanctioned league to offer a fall season in the Vancouver/Burnaby areas.

All of this (not only now, but in the past) is due to many key persons who I have had the privilege to know and work with at some point over time 1996-2012). In no particular order, I sincerely thank the following (I hope I didn't miss many. If I did, it wasn't intentional):

  • SPN UMPIRES (Past and Present): Vancouver Softball Association (Pat and Sandy Dooley); METRO UMPIRES ASSOCIATION (Jack Steele)
  • SPN BC OFFICE (Past and Present): Jay Tourangeau; Lorri McCauley; Stacy Rath; Paul Langford
  • OTHER LEAGUE PRESIDENTS AND EXECUTIVE MEMBERS (Past and Present): Mike Cooke; Trudy Hennan; Peter Zeller; Brian Alexander; Bonnie Gauthier, Mike Jefferson; George Heimbigner; Peter McKenna; Richard Casseldine; Gary LeBlanc; David Hollingsworth; Rob Cust; Darrell Pederson
  • CITYWIDE SPORTS EXECUTIVE MEMBERS (Past and Present): Rob Camporese; Dion Bellay; Sean Cornies; Peter Dowsett; Kevin and Jen Sparrow
  • PARKS, RECREATION, & CULTURE OFFICES (Past and Present): City of Vancouver; City of Burnaby; City of New Westminster; City of Surrey; Softball City
 
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: To all teams, players, team managers, umpires (past and present) who have ever played and/or umpired in the League.
 

As they say in show biz, "If there's no audience, there ain't no show". I thank you again, and will see you somewhere (on the ball field, in a tournament, at a concert, at a sporting event, etc.). Citywide Sports & Activities Club Inc. will continue on (just no more slo-pitch leagues). I am truly grateful for all the good times that I personally experienced; and the personal/management skils that I have been able to develop and utilize in all areas of my personal life. I thank the many persons (listed above) who taught me the right (correct) things to do throughout this journey.

Cheers, and that's it for now...
