02-413-A-1. Pg. 6. Caption: Whistler's slo-pitch league almost became snow pitch this season, but Stoney's pulled ahead before the flakes fell and won the championship in the 19-team league. Saturday's championship game against the Gourmet Rainbow Reefers saw the Stoney's crew (above) win 14 to 8, and had some observers calling the league the Beer and Whine league by the end. Next years should be another interesting season as the Tapley A's, make their long awaited slo-pitch debut.
