The 4th Annual BALLFEST SLo-Pitch Tournament is set to take place July 15-17, 2011. This is a super fun tournament and a great weekend for all!!

Building on the successes of past years we will continue on in much the same fashion and hope that we will see 20 teams participating this year. We will also be adding Friday Night Games and a welcome dinner to the Friday Night Cabaret Party.


The date and course has been set and the inaugural year of this memorial tournament for my dad is going to be something special. I am very excited to get the ball rolling on have great visions of what a tournament like this can become. Growing it into a large scale fundraising event for charities that my dad valued is a defined goal, however it is ultimately just about getting together and having fun.

I can;t think of any better way to honor my dad, who loved to golf!!!



Upon learning of a few minor conflicts with the weekend chosen for BALLFEST, we have decided to bump it up to the weekend of July 23-25.


BALLFEST 2010 will be taking place JULY 23-25 at the Crossroads Ball Diamonds on Highway 93/95 at Invermere, BC. We are looking forward to bringing out more teams this year and hosting a fun weekend of ball.

Building on the successes and feedback of past years we will be making a few changes and additions to the weekend. Instead of an outdoor stage, we will have a DJ providing music at the diamonds and have a Saturday Night Cabaret at the neighboring Lions Hall with live music from Calgary band SATORI LIFE. There will also be cheap drinks, party games and a silent auction to raise money for some fix-ups around the diamonds, so that each year we can build a bigger and better BALLFEST!!

We will again have a beer garden and food concession at the diamonds throughout the weekend and organize some fun things for the kids too! There will be a Saturday afternoon home run derby and of course cash and prizes for top teams.

New this year is the Bocce Ball Tourney. Teams of 4 will compete for cash in this ’side bet’ tournament that will run in conjunction with slo-pitch games throughout the weekend. $40/team. Indicate interest on your registration form and we will be sending out separate Bocce signup sheets later

Registration forms are attached and more information will continue to be posted online at 

Thanks so much, look forward to seeing you in July!!


With the awesomeness of the past couple years of DEBAUCHIROCK, it is my intention to run a few extra trips as part of a series in 2009. The same concept is in place- cruisin around in the turbo van, hittin crazy snow, and tearin up towns. It may be debauchiry but we ROCK IT time and time again. 

The series will start off with our staple trip down through Fernie, Rossland, and Nelson. The January 30-February 3 timing is perfect for rockin these towns during some awesome parties. Last years’ escapades at the Kokanee Snow Dreams party in Fernie will definitely go down in history, but with our founding table slide representative on baby leave this year, there is room for anyone to step up—and I dont doubt we will. Love you DJ!!!!

With a bit of time to recover we get ready for the journey to Rossland, cruisin into town in time for the annual Rossland Street Jam and Festival. Road are shut down, music is playing, and a rail park has been built for this crazy day of tricksters, vendors, and of course beer garden. YAAYYYY. Chekin in to our luxury condo and livin large is awesome and the party continues. Merely steps away from the lifts, we have 2 days to make ourselves at home on Red Mountain (my new favorite mountain by far after last years’ adventure). 

We then head to Nelson for a night on the town. Staying right downtown is perfect for strolling the streets and hittin some fun night life. WE missed out last year, so hopefully this year will be epic. We will ride Whitewater on the way out of town and head homeward bound after another day cruisin fresh powder (if all goes according to plan). 

This loop through the West Kootenay is one we have done the past couple years, and definitely an annual staple. WE have crazy fun, meet awesome people, and hit some of the best snow I have experienced in my years of riding. This trip is for anyone who likes to have fun and go hard. “if there was ever 4 (5) days to do crazy shit…this is it!!”




is the ultimate party tour week complete with 5 distinct rock shows, pre parties and after parties, Open Jam Sessions, beach activities, a golf scramble, and countless other chances to experience summer in the Mountains.

To kick it up we are putting together a team of collaborating forces to document the tour through various corresponding mediums. That is to say that we are giving ourselves crafty titles, taking on various roles and engaging in a week long tour production.
