    The SPN Provincial Qualifier Co-ed Slo-Pitch Tournament was held during the event over several days, weeding out the best players. June 18 was a lovely day for a game of ball, with many teams hoping to win. John Milwain looks almost surprised as he manages to make it to third base, which was guarded by Johnathan Ring.

Centre Days and Ribfest brought droves of people to the heart of Petawawa from June 10 to June 19. Neither the rain or the burning blazing sun could prevent the event from being a success. The activities were diverse, interesting and fit for all ages. As always the midway was one of the most popular attractions, but so was the Ribfest, newly inaugurated Beer Fest, live music, games, Giant Book sale, Slo-Pitch Tournament, Lobsterfest, Lawn Tractor Races, tough mudder competition and more.
