The Meeting of Kitimat City Council on July 5th began with a special presentation to the Mayor. Barb Campbell took the stand representing Kitimat Minor Fastball.
“On behalf of the organizing committee of the 2010 Midget Fastball Tournament and the Kitimat Rockies, I want to say thank you to Mayor and Council for their ongoing support. You’ve supported us over the years for tournaments we’ve hosted in Kitimat. This Year unfortunately, our tournament has been cancelled and as a result of that, we are giving back the $3,000 grant which was given to us to assist in the hosting in the tournament which would have taken place next weekend,” said Campbell.
She publicly thanked the community for the support from the businesses and individuals showing them support. She said they would try and do a tournament in the future; it would most likely be a western tournament rather then a provincial.
Mayor Joanne Monaghan was presented the check and a team photo. Monaghan wished Campbell luck and hoped they were able to organize a western tournament.
