Will we find out this week if Softball Canada is coming back to Owen Sound with a major National Championship ?
The Brick Brothers Volkswagen got into a very nice groove, hosting the 2008 & 2009 Canadian Junior Men's Championship and they gave every indication they would love to be the host city again in 2010.
Suddenly, according to the Selection Committee, bids appeared from East & Central and Owen Sound was denied 2010 which will be in Nova Scotia.
Encouraged to bid for the Canadian Junior Championship in 2011, Owen Sound again was denied, this time Napanee got the bid.
Encouraged further to bid for the 2011 National Men's Championship Tournament, an event that was last here in 2003, the Verge Investment Senior Selects now wait.
The Selects fastball organization understands that their application has been approved by the O.A.S.A. and as per the political process, it has been forwarded for consideration by Softball Ontario & eventually Softball Canada.
The belief when they received the O.A.S.A. approval was that the decision could be rendered within 2 weeks, which should make it about Wednesday.
So again, will Softball Canada bring another Canadian Championship Tournament to Owen Sound ?
I hope we find out this week.
