Registration is being taken for the 2018 Cherry Days softball tournament scheduled for June 30-July 1 at Volunteer Park in Paonia. A men's wood bat tournament will be held June 30, and a co-ed tournament (with men using wood bat only) will be held July 1. Games start at 8 a.m. and are limited to one hour. Each team is guaranteed three games. First-round losses will determine gold and silver bracket teams. Cost is $250 per team, with a gold bracket payout of $500. While teams wait for their games, they can compete in a time-killing corn hole tournament. Proceeds benefit the Paonia High School wrestling program.
