Are you interested in catching ball action and checking out hundreds of classic cars? This weekend is yours to enjoy!  

The Mennonite Heritage Village is returning their Heritage Classic Car Show this Saturday, July 22.   

“It's been going on since 2017. We had a couple of years' break during the pandemic, but it was back last year, and we had more cars than ever. It's going to be another great day to have classic cars, owners with great workmanship and wonderful stories to tell about their vehicles, and they'll be lined up on our Main Street,” says Robert Goertzen.  

He notes there will be anywhere between 120 to 200 vehicles. They will all be split into categories and judged by a panel for the awards ceremony at 4 PM.  

In addition to Main St. being lined with cars, there will also be face painting, farm animals, barrel train rides and opportunities to enjoy the grounds.  

Goertzen is most excited about the stories behind the vehicles.  

“I think hearing some of the stories of the vehicle owners,” he explains. “It may be a vehicle that was the first car that they owned when they turned 16 and got their driver's license or maybe something that their parents or grandparents drove, and they just always thought of it as a cool car. When they had the opportunity, they started working on it and made it into the wonderful work of art it is now.”  

We will be at the MHV Heritage Classic Car Show from 11 AM to 2 PM with Wendy’s Show Us Your Summer!  

The Umpire Association is hosting this year’s U15 A Girls Softball Provincials at the A.D. Penner Park in Steinbach. The tournament runs from Friday, July 21 to Sunday, July 23.  

We will be there with Wendy’s Show Us Your Summer on Friday, July 21, from 2 PM to 5 PM. There are 28 teams from all over Manitoba competing, including Steinbach Storm.  

Mike Klassen of Steinbach Softball is an umpire and president of the Steinbach District Umpires Association.  

It kicks off Friday at 9 AM. For the first game of the local team Steinbach Storm, they will face off against the Cross Lake Wild Pitchers at 9:15 AM on Diamond 4. He describes it as a “very busy tournament.”  

“We have great ball that's U15 A, and it should be pretty good ball, seeing girls have a fun time. When it all comes together with good umpires on the fields, good teams, a well-run tournament, just seeing it all come together and successfully. That's what I'm looking forward to,” Klassen says. 

In addition to all the softball action, they will also have a canteen available.   

On Saturday, games run from 9 AM to 7:30 PM, and Sunday will be packed with championship action.  

“We do charge a gate fee for people that are coming to watch. That's going back to our Umpires Association to develop umpires and stuff like that, so I think it's a good cause, and then it's about $10 per day that we would charge per person,” he explains.  

The shortage of umpires has been an issue over time, and Klassen says the money collected will positively impact the sport.
