Approximately thirty NWSABR members and guests attended the meeting, which was held at Nat Bailey Stadium courtesy of Vancouver Canadians owner and SABR member Jake Kerr.  Featured guests were Ossie Chavarria and John Haar, pictured below.  Chavarria was a former utility man for the Kansas City A's and Vancouver Mounties who also enjoyed a long career as an umpire.  John was a standout UBC athlete, spent time in the minors for SF and NYY, and has contributed immensely to baseball in Canada.  Both received universal acclaim from a very appreciative audience as two of the best speakers we've had.

After the meeting, many gathered at the residence of Max Weder and Jennifer Ettinger for a social BBQ, then returned to Nat Bailey to watch the Canadians come from behind in the bottom of the ninth to beat Tri-City 6 to 5.  All in all, a great day of baseball and comradery!  Thanks to Max Weder and Kit Krieger for organizing the entire event.
