The 2010 edition of the Wyevale Tournament will mark the 11th consecutive year that the Tribe has organized this annual event held in Elmvale & Wyevale. The tournament itself is a local tradition that is nearly 50 years old, and the Tribe is honoured to be carrying on a tradition that is so deeply rooted within our community.

The 2009 tournament was a resounding success both on and off the field, and the 2010 version will undoubtedly build upon the momentum created by last years competition.

In 2009 the Port Elgin Blue Devils defeated the Kitchener Outlaws in the championship game, and in doing so claimed the $1,500 1st prize. Noteably the Blue Devils went on to claim the ISC II TOC crown in Rock Island, IL. When asked after the TOC championship game by a Springwater News journalist ‘if there was a single reason why they were able to complete their magical chamionship run in 2009’, manager Jim McKinnon replied ‘There are many things that go into winning a championship, pitching, hitting, defence, but the single biggest factor for us this year was participating in Wyevale’s tournament”.
