Big win at the Chili cookoff! “Smell ya later” Elena Sehic & family.
Thanks to everyone who came out for some good fun today at the club for Snowbowl and the Chili-Cookoff (one of the longest held traditions at the club)
Happy New Year !!
Feeling SO proud of our efforts this year. With a few last minute donations (thanks Curtis and Barry) Best total ever at $4850! That is enough to feed 95 families in our community for Christmas dinner. We ended up with 74 individual donations from club members, friends and family from across NB, NS, MB and Alberta! Our donations ranged in size from $5 to $365 (thanks Duncan for your generous plan to encourage others to donate!)
Just as we have for years as a club, this is a reminder that we can make a huge impact just by working together. Merry Christmas and
see you for the chilli cook off on Jan 1st!
Very busy week past and coming so let's get right to it.
Big thanks to the huge crowd that came out for the full day of rugby at the club on Saturday. In the two league games the club came out on top with the Women beating the Irish and the Men's A side topping the Mudmen in Maritime Elite League action. In exhibition action the Men's B side drew 22-22 with the Mudmen. Beautiful day of rugby and great crowd supporting the teams from berm.
Saturday was also the last day of flag rugby for the year. This was another banner year for the program with over 220 kids taking part. A massive thanks to the full crew of coordinators and coaches who make this such a success. Feedback from parents is incredibly positive and the smiles on the kids faces tell their story. Thank you, thank you, thank you.…
As Blake's posts below shows our touring side to St.Pierre et Miquelon was much appreciated from the hosts. Tim Comeau was nice enough to provide a first hand account of the trip from the tourists perspective. Take it away Tim:
I am always hesitant to use the terms once in a lifetime opportunity when describing something, but for this tour I must. Back in January or February of this year we were approached to put together an 18 person touring side to go and play St-Pierre et Miquelon XV side. They specifically requested a squad that included three women and 3 players over the age 40. When they approached us it sounded too good to be true. All we need to do was arrange our own drives to and from Halifax and pay for own food and refreshments and…Continue
