SEVEN HILLS—Boasting a day on the greens, dinner, a huge prize table and the chance to help out a local cause, registration has opened for the annual Loggers Golf Tournament, which will return to Seven Hills Golf and Country Club June 14-15.

Loggers Golf last year funded six scholarships with the profits from the sell-out tourney, which drew 144 players. This year organizers are aiming for the same number, with a June 11 registration cut-off.

Those interested can sign up as foursomes or individually, to be assigned to teams. Three 18-hole flights will take place over the weekend with a barbecue supper to follow each flight. The tourney is a four-player, best-ball format and the $65 per person entry covers green fees, dinner and a prize. Additional auctions, raffles and 50/50 draws will also be available over the weekend.

To register, or for more information, contact Bill Gray at 250-949-7623 or Lito Pineda at 250-956-5234.

Slo-pitch

A planned tournament in Port McNeill this weekend has been cancelled, but the North Island Slo-pitch season kicks off May 2-4 when Port Hardy Slo-pitch hosts its annual Umpires Icebreaker Classic at Beaver Harbour Park. To register or for more info, call David at 250-949-7221.

Floor hockey

The annual Harvey Walkus Memorial tournament will bring teams from throughout the Island and Coastal Mainland for three days of action at both Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena and Wakas Hall on Tsulquate Reserve. Competition will be held in men’s and women’s divisions, with cash and trophy prizes. For info, call Gary at 250-230-3852 or Darcy, 250-949-1484.

Soccer

Fields in Port McNeill will be overrun this weekend as Port McNeill Youth Soccer hosts its annual Mud Bowl soccer tournament. From tots to age 18, youth teams from across the North Island will compete at Cheslakees School, Sunset Elementary and North Island Secondary School pitches. Concession will be open; finals in divisional classifications begin Sunday afternoon.
