Canada West ISC – II Qualifier Set

The dates and site are set for the Canada West Area Qualifier for a spot in the ISC – II Tournament of Champions.

Commissioner Ferdi Nelissen is announcing that the competition will be held in Portage la Prairie at the Republic of Manitobah Park.

The dates are the weekend of June 4 and 5, 2005.

Entry fee is $300 CDN.

This is an International Softball Congress sanctioned qualifier for teams seeking a berth in the ISC-II Tournament of Champions, a 40-team North American championship event for teams deemed level II by the ISC. The 2005 ISC-II Tournament of Champions will be held from August 14 – 19 in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, along side the ISC World Tournament which will be held in nearby Eau Claire, Wisconsin, from August 12 – 20.

See the ISC website ( for details on each event and for ISC – II eligibility requirements.

Teams already indicating interest in the qualifier include: Devils Lake Risers, Gladstone Whips, Portage Phillies, and Regina.

The Gladstone Whips from Manitoba are defending champions in the event. They went on last season to finish a strong fourth in the ISC-II Tournament of Champions in Fargo, ND. Regina, Portage, and Devils Lake also participated in Fargo by gaining invitational berths from the ISC. Only teams which participate in ISC sanctioned Area Qualifiers or Travel Leagues will be eligible for invitational opportunities if they do not win a berth.
