Burnaby is Hosting the 2010 CNOBF Championship Tournament
On behalf of the Metro Vancouver Organizing Committee (MVOC) for the 18th annual Canadian Championships in 2010, weíd like to welcome all players, managers and teams to the official website for the tournament.
The MVOC is made up of players, managers and executive from the two main menís baseball leagues operating in the metro Vancouver area Ė Lower Mainland Baseball Association (LMBA) and the Poco Menís Baseball League (PMBL). We are all working hard behind the scenes trying to ensure that everything is in place so that your trip out to the West Coast is a great one.
This website is under construction and changes as we finalize more details with sponsors and other related components. Please browse through it and make note of the specifics regarding the tournament.
Familiarize yourself with the tournament rules, important registration dates and deadlines. No tournament of this stature can get by without sponsorship and we are continually looking for more community partners to connect with. Please check out our sponsors and the links to their businesses as we add them to this site.
Any tournament questions or concerns can be directed to either of the tournaments co-chairs;

The committee will be looking to involve the local community in supporting the tournament.¬† Baseball associations, local business establishments, and interested individuals are welcome to contact us if they would like to become part of our 2010 tournament.¬†
While several commercial contacts have been made by the host committee, it is hoped to network the 700 members in both the LMBA and POCO leagues for sources of manpower and sponsorship support.¬† Teams planning to enter the tournament will be expected to provide committee volunteers and other forms of support.¬† This will enable them to focus on playing when the tournament is taking place.¬†¬†Once the tournament¬†commences it is anticipated that¬†volunteers from both leagues will supply the necessary help to run the games, maintain¬†fields, and fill various other¬†organizational roles.
