End of the Roll Misfits are hosting their annual Jackson Memorial Slo-pitch Tournament in Union Bay this weekend (June 14-16).

Games start Friday, June 14 at 6 p.m. with  Loose Change up against the Misfits. Games go all weekend long with the final set for Sunday at 4 p.m. Beer gardens are open all day Saturday and Sunday.

The Misfits are donating all proceeds from the concession to CIBC Run for The Cure. This annual event  in Victoria (Oct. 6 this year) raises funds for breast cancer research. Sharon Hadden, a longtime Misfit team member, is running for the Walkers for Knockers team in the race. Last year $1,300 was donated to this cause. Anyone wishing to donate can call Sharon Hadden at 250-702-1317.

“Come on out enjoy a burger and beverage, and watch some ball – all for a great cause,” a tourney spokesperson said.
