We often use this space to talk up the amazing contributions of our local business community members, and this week we got another great example. Check out this terrific collaboration between the Baycats and the Kage to benefit, as they well say, The Love of the Game!

BAYCATS LAUNCH "FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME" FUNDRAISER By: Ryan Eakin / @ryaneakin13 BARRIE – The Barrie Baycats Baseball Club announced today that we are launching our new fundraising campaign called "For the Love of the Game” in partnership with @thekagebarrie, who have graciously accepted to host the equipment drive with a large bin at the front of their doors. "For the Love of the Game" is a fundraising campaign to gather used baseball equipment to bring to the Dominican Republic. Every year we are very fortunate to have multiple players from the Dominican Republic play on our team. We want to take this a step further and be able to provide our players with as much equipment as we can to take back home with them. Our players will know of communities, baseball organizations, and baseball players themselves who are in need of equipment. As we all know here in Canada, baseball equipment is easy to find, purchase, and upgrade whenever possible. However, sometimes in the Dominican Republic that is not the case. We need you — the best fans in the Intercounty Baseball League — to help to make this possible. Instead of simply throwing out or donating any used baseball equipment, we ask that you help us with our fundraiser by donating your items to us. Used baseball equipment we are asking for include… Helmets Baseballs Batting Gloves Bats Baseball Gloves Cleats Socks With the gathering of this equipment, there will be a cost of getting this to the Dominican Republic. As a result, if anyone is able and willing to donate to this cause there you can donate to our GoFundMe which can be accessed by clicking the link in our bio. Any amount would help us greatly. You can drop off all equipment at the Kage Batting Facility located on 112 Saunders Rd in Barrie. Their hours of operations are Noon to 9 pm from Mondays to Fridays, 10 am to 9 pm on Saturdays, and 10 am to 6 pm on Sundays. 👉 FOR FULL STORY AND QUOTES CLICK LINK IN BIO AND DIRECT TO BARRIE BAYCATS.COM 👈

And speaking of amazing and local, just check out the vibrant colours surrounding the Spirit Catcher…

Did you see this funny/not funny sign at the Collier street parkade? It was only there for a day but whoever put it up nailed it!

Have you been to Last Level Lounge since the lockdowns ended? You can book in for groups or hourly and hit up all their cool retro gaming. Pray you fare better than Han Solo did at Cloud City…

Live music? Yes please! There are still plenty of gigs and shows across town, at some great venues, including the newest BBQ joint in town!

Of course we all enjoyed an extra day off work and school this past week, thanks to…Thanksgiving. It’s great to see so many Barrie-ites show their gratitude at this time of year, despite everything we’ve been through in 2020.

Speaking of gratitude, how about this fantastic initiative from @quesadabayfield supporting the local arts scene!

And how can you not be thankful for scenes like this along our cityscape…

Golfers who need a little upkeep on their swing as the colder weather sets in will be excited to hear this!

There are so many great interpretations you could apply to this cool pic. A great shot of Barrie’s downtown alleyways!

It was great to see the return of the Barrie Film Festival this weekend, despite Covid. A great lineup of films, including the short film showcase in which 3 local filmmakers won awards for their entries!

The Film festival was just one of a bunch of events during a busy week. Open Air Dunlop was back, and with loads of people! It runs right through to mid-October, so be sure to check out downtown’s cool new layout next Saturday!

It’s great to see our entire business community pulling together during these crazy times. Good on Oxygen South Barrie for making a contribution to the Special Olympics!

And speaking of community spirit, did you see the great folks taking part in this year’s Run For The Cure? Pink costumes never looked so good!

And finally, some big news from the Barrie Baycats this week, and their partnership with a couple of fantastic Barrie based sports facilities, The Kage and Athletickulture!

Summer is winding down, which is bittersweet. But even as the beaches and patios close down for another season, there is plenty to look forward to in the Fall, including everything Pumpkin!

It’s been a great month for all of the local restaurants and eateries around town as eat in and patio options are available for patrons. And it’s been even better in the joints that offer live music!

Speaking of the local music scene, congrats to our friend @meganannemusic on the release of her new single, Flavour of the Month! Find her stuff and loads of other Barrie artists on the Barrie set list!

Have you checked out the Local Goods market? They run every week with tons of wares and tons of great local vendors.

Next time you are on a walk, check out the cool street art around town. Whether it’s inspired graffiti or something flip like this!

Don’t forget that the library is open! For the kids and…any thing from the Jurassic era who might be living with you!

It’s been great to see the final touches go in along Dunlop street as the construction finishes up. And as @leboeufjewellers reminded us with this throwback, it’s been a long time since we actually had trees downtown!

Did you grab some vinyl this weekend? It was Record day! And Sunrise Records was rolling out the welcome tunes…

Speaking of local music, our friends from Crast share some cool news on their Insta this week!

Even though the weather is starting to show hints of Fall, it’s no reason to pull back from the outdoor adventuring. Especially fishing!

…or a walk through Heritage Park!

And finally, it wouldn’t quite be a weekend without a patio shot.Thanks to @stateandmainbarrie for the heads up on this drink idea for your next outdoor bevvy!
