Coach Ernie Ambrosi had this to say about the tournament and the effort of his team:

     “The 60 plus seniors attended the Montana Senior Games in Missoula Montana on the weekend of June 27 and 28th. This was the first year that a team from Medicine Hat travelled the 400 miles to Missoula. The host city had great facilities, namely a 6 diamond complex, and was well run.  Apparently this was the 4th  year for these games, and is growing every year with more teams entering.  This year teams from as far away as Seattle, WA attended, and included teams from Calgary, Cochrane, Kalispell, Cour de Alene, Bellingham Wash.  Our Medicine Hat team breezed through the preliminary games and the semi final, however, the bats went silent in the Championship game, and they had to settle for the Silver Medal.  Missoula was a beautiful setting for this tournament, and we recommend other teams from different age groups consider attending next year, where they will be held again on the same weekend. All 12 players that attended committed themselves to come back next year.  The camaraderie was excellent and everyone had a lot of laughs at each others expense.  Every player had their turn at having a 'Senior Moment'.”
