The TransCanada Corporation recently presented a cheque for $1,000 to the Yahk-Kingsgate Recreation Society to help replace the slo-pitch backstop. The original was in danger of collapse due to rotting timbers, but the new one will be supported by galvanized poles set in concrete.

Yahk’s field was once the preferred site for slo-pitch tournaments involving teams from surrounding communities, serving as a sort of halfway location between Cranbrook, and Creston. It is hoped that with the attraction of ongoing improvements, it will again take on that function.
