2013 was the first year we teamed up with Funtastic out of Vernon here in Port Alberni, and the response has been awesome. We had 56 teams in 2013, 66 in 2014, we hosted 70 teams in 2015, and we are pretty confident 70 teams will be here for 2016.
This is the first year since adding the Music Festival, we will have a true long weekend with Canada Day falling on the Friday.
The 2015 Music Festival portion of the weekend, sponsored once again by Tyler's No Frills had our first ever Country Night, and the response was amazing! The Tumblin Dice, The County Line and Lance Lapointe kicked off the live entertainment part of the weekend and the crowd had a really good time. Sunday night was back to good old rock & roll with the Aerosmith Tribute band putting on a great show. Our House Band---CHEVY METAL was awesome as always. Thanks to all the performers!!
After the success of the Country Night in 2015, we are looking to have one again this year. Our Music Director Jason Samson has got a couple surprises up his sleeve for 2016. For updates please check the website for the 2016 bands...they will be posted as they are booked/confirmed. Thanks J!!
We already have 8 teams signed up for 2016, and we are receiving emails from new teams looking for 2016 tourney info. THE RENEGADES received FREE ENTRY once again winning the LARLALAND Costume Contest. TWO YEARS IN A ROW!!.....they were amazing all weekend. After seeing all the zany costumes in Vernon over the past decade, to see the teams who entered the costume contest here in Alberni was really nice......it kept a smile on our faces all weekend. THE BULLS won FREE ENTRY for 2016 by winning the Most Sportsmanlike Team. The BEAT DOWNZ also won free entry for completing the survey that was put together in 2015 by the City Of Port Alberni. The City sponsored the survey and covered the cost of the free entry. Thank you. PLEASE NOTE!! Over the past number of years emails have been sent to teams who have attended the Okee Dokee Tournament, and after confirming....your spot has basically been saved until the entry form, and entry fees are received, or May 1st. This year we will be sending out the emails, but it will be 1st come 1st serve. PLEASE DONT BE DISSAPOINTED!!ENTER EARLY!! We will be SOLD OUT!!
JUST A REMINDER TO EVERYONE.....PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE ENTRY FORM.
PLAN TO PLAY??.....
