Other special guests in attendance included MLA’s Daryl Reid and Bidhu Jha, Councillor Russ Wyatt and Buhler Facility Manager Steve Mymko. EWSA President Tom Thompson served as Master of Ceremonies. Steve Mymko was honoured for his efforts in making the park a reality, the main road to the clubhouse will now be known as “Steve Mymko Circle. The College Pierre Elliot Trudeau Chamber Choir provided musical entertainment for the ceremonies.

Saturday evening featured a Celebrity Baseball Game, where the Buhler Red Team defeated the Buhler Blue Team 6-5. Umpire John Buhler managed to avoid controversy by calling a fair game.
The evening ended with great fanfare, with performances by Caraballo and Piano Catz, followed by an awesome performance by the Fire Pixies and a fireworks display.
To cap off the weekend, more than 50 boys and girls baseball and softball teams competed in the first Wayne Tucker Memorial Transcona Sports Weekend.
