For Airdrie to host such a popular and respected fundraisier shows how dedicated our residents are and that our facilities are top knotch.
Slo-pitch fans and their families all came out to our fair city, and we once again had the opportunity to show our neighbours from the South just want we can offer.
This yearís tournament, was the fourth in a row that was held at Chinook Winds Park, in the South-West.
Hundreds of people dressed up in their favourite pink outfits, with some choosing to take their customes to a whole new level, but all took to the mound for a chance at their grand slam.
However, it continues to be Airdrieís grand slam, that we get to play host to this vital fundraiser.
