The Kelowna Jays will host their 11th Annual Canada Day Blast tournament beginning on Friday at Elks Stadium.

The four team tournament will feature the Jays, Okanagan Athletics, Calgary Diamondbacks and Prince George Axemen each playing a minimum of five games.

The tournament opens Friday as the host Jays (11-3) face the Diamondbacks at 7:00pm.  Zach Burlon gets the start in the opener.

Traditionally this tournament draws 12-16 teams, however due to a schedule change of a massive tournament in Grand Folks, most teams have elected to attend that event instead.

The four teams in the Canada Day Blast will compete for the money prize along with bragging rights for the year.

The following the complete schedule of games:

Diamondbacks vs. Jays – 7pm

Diamondbacks vs. Athletics – 10am
Axemen vs. Diamondbacks – 1pm
Jays vs. Axemen – 4pm
Athletics vs. Jays – 7pm

Athletics vs. Axemen – 10am

Axemen vs. Jays – 4pm

1st Place vs. 4th Place – 9am
2nd Place vs. 3rd Place – 11:30am
Tournament Final – 2pm
