The Vancouver Grey Sox and South Hill Sports are pleased to officially
announce the schedule of games for the 5th Annual Vancouver Challenge
Tournament to be held at South Memorial Park in Vancouver from July 28 - 30.

This year's event features the Saskatoon, SK Sr. Diamondbacks, Prince
George, BC Black Bears, Richmond, BC Linus Software Stealers, Squamish, BC
Wizards, Portland, OR CR Fastpitch, Yucaipa, CA So Cal Casa Trejo Bombers
and the host Vancouver Grey Sox. Unfortunately the Saskatoon, SK Aspen
Interiors Black Sox withdrew from the event due to player availability
issues. Several attempts have been made without success to secure an 8th
team, and thus the decision has been made to proceed with a 7 team

The format will be a modified round robin, with each team playing 3 round
robin games, with the exception of the host Grey Sox who due to the uneven
number of teams entered will play a fourth game to balance the round robin
format. Only 3 of the Grey Sox round robin games will count in the official
standings. After completion of the round robin, teams will be seeded
according to (a) won / loss record, (b) head to head competition - if
applicable, (c) overall plus / minus (max. run differential per game is
seven), (d) overall fewest runs allowed, (e) overall greater number of runs
scored. The top 6 teams will advance to the playoffs. 1st and 2nd will
receive a bye to the semi finals. 3rd vs. 6th and 4th vs. 5th will play in
the quarter finals.

All games will be played at South Memorial Park in Vancouver located at 41
Avenue East and Windsor Street. Gate admission is $5.00 per day or $10.00
for a weekend pass. Further updates and information will be provided as we
get closer to the tournament.
