NTPD Tournament raises funds for Brandy

The event, which was organized by North Thompson Plumbing and Drains and its owner Jasen Mann, raised over $500

Expendables player Ross Vipond (l) coaches as Chelsea Gerow makes it to first base before the Stepfathers first base person makes the catch from the short stop. They were taking part in the first annual NTPD Slow-Pitch Tournament on Sept. 14 and 15 at Capostinsky Park.

The first annual NTPD Slow-Pitch Tournament was a great success, organizers report.

“It was a great tournament. Everybody had fun,” one of them said.

The event, which was organized by North Thompson Plumbing and Drains and its owner Jasen Mann, raised over $500 for Brandy Elesko’s leukemia fund. The young woman formerly played slow pitch and is well known by many of those who took part in the tournament.

One of the winners of the 50/50 draw also gave the winnings back to the fund.

Dennis Greffard of Clearwater Septic contributed $75 to the Brandy’s fund plus $75 for the homerun contest. Clearwater Stingers in turn contributed their winnings in the homerun contest to the fund as well.

Eight teams took part in the tournament – four local and four from Kamloops.


Stingers took first place, followed by Slammers in second. Horny Devils came in third.
