With the uncertainty of the COVID 19 situation at this time, the 2021 Funtastic A&W Music Festival and Slo Pitch tournament to be held on July 1st – 4th, 2021 is being cancelled.
President Darcy Sochan says, “It is a decision that no one wants to make. We tried to hold off as long as we could, but under the current circumstances, it’s the right decision the Board had to make for the safety of everyone and the community. We all look forward to hosting the event next year and seeing everyone again.”
The mission for the Funtastic Sports Society is to give back to the community through sport, which is what has been done for the past 36 years, Funds raised at the Music Festival and Slo Pitch tournament are given back to local non profit sports organizations and to sports related projects. To ensure support for local sports groups continues the Funtastic Board of Directors are selling raffle tickets http://funtasticsports.ca/raffle-tickets/. Funds from the tickets sales will enable Funtastic to offer the Funtastic Community Grant program again this year, where up to $30,000 will be given to local non profit sports organizations and to enhancing the current ball fields located at DND.
The raffle draw will take place on July 3rd and the community grant program will be open for applications in June.
All teams registered in Vernon, will be contacted and have the opportunity to early register for 2022.
The Funtastic Society satellite locations of Port Alberni and Enderby will also be cancelled.
