Another Season Complete
The 2023 National Championships for both Youth and Adults have now come to a close. This year saw PEI send a youth team to Nationals and we as an Executive Board, and personally, as an Islander, it was with great pride that our province was represented at that level. Our Youth Director, Tracy Powers, and volunteers worked tirelessly to fundraise and to make the trip a real possibility and a great success. I believe the foundation has been started for a youth movement in which we may eventually pass the torch.
For our adults, we were able to send full Mens and Ladies teams, a huge success for our Association. I was privileged enough to be part of that team and I can say that it was an experience never to be forgotten. The support and friendship, as well as team unity was on display the entire week. PEI made some noise at the event, racking up over 70 match wins, a significant increase over the previous year. Our volunteers, spare and team members made team support a priority and I believe PEI was well represented both professionally and in overall performance.
None of this would be possible without the ongoing efforts of our Executive Board, fundraising activities and most of all, the unwavering support from our members. Without you all, we have nothing. I would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone involved on every level to make this year’s youth and adult championships a success. Now, we turn our attention to our Red Rock Open this fall, which will be another milestone event for our Association.
Enjoy your summer!
