Season Greetings and Happy New Year!!!

Hello CMSA Members, Families and Friends;

As 2017 comes to an end, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone (players, coaches, volunteers, parents, relatives, friends, sponsors and the executive) who support and help make CMSA one of the biggest and best fastball associations in BC.

The association is coming off one of it’s most successful seasons on the diamond to date, with great showings and/or results at the C (house) and Fury (rep.) levels.  Here are a few of the highlights;

• 5 of our C (house) teams medalled in districts
• 8 teams qualified and participated in their respective provincial tourney, where 4 of them medalled.
• Our Fury ’01 team had one of most successful seasons a CMSA rep. team has had to date, by medalling in almost all of the tourneys they participating in, finishing first in league play, taking gold in U16 Districts, then gold in U16 Provincials in Nanaimo, and finishing the season with Gold at the U16 Westerns in Brandon, MB (first time a Fury team has won Westerns).

Registration for the 2018 season is just around the corner, stayed tuned for more details over the next couple of weeks.

Have a great holiday season. May your Christmas be filled with happiness, smiles and some special moments, and your New Year’s celebration be festive and fun! All the best, and we wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous 2017!

CMSA rides again in the 2017 Cloverdale Santa Claus Parade!

CMSA players and coaches continued our annual participation in the Cloverdale Santa Claus Parade recently.  This was our 7th year being involved and had one of our biggest turnouts to date, with approx. 90+ players of all ages riding on the float or walking in the parade.  This has been a great opportunity for our association to participate in a local community event where players and coaches give back to our sport and the community by spreading holiday spirit, and promoting our sport.

We would like to thank the following;

– Brent and the Cloverdale Rodeo for letting us share the float this year
– Richard from Cloverdale Disposal for use of the trailer to decorate and have the kids ride on
– Mark for getting us through the route safely, great driving Mark!
Freybe Gourmet Foods and Save-on-Foods for their generous donations towards providing food to our group for before and after the parade.
– All those who helped out with set-up and the feeding of the masses.
– Lastly to all the kids who participated in the parade, and of course to their parents for bringing them!

We look forward to continuing this CMSA tradition next year!
