MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT - July 16, 2014

It is hard to believe but our 2014 Outdoor Season is coming to a close. The JD's have their Championship Event next weekend in Surrey, 7 Athletes and 1 coach are heading to the Summer Games in Nanaimo, 8 or more athletes heading to Legion Nationals in August and our 4 International Childrens Games athletes are still working hard on raising funds to go to Australia in the fall.
 
The 2014 season has seen athletes attend the National Indoor Meet in Quebec, the BC JD Pentathlon Championships, the Jr Nationals in Quebec, BC Championships in Kamloops as well as the Jr and Sr Combined Events Nationals in Ottawa.
 We have had our head coach named as Team BC Coach for 3 different Canadian Championship events and one athlete named to the Canadian Panamerican Combined Events Team. 
This year's Jack Brow was the largest in our OAC history, which we could not have done without all our parent volunteers, coaches, athletes and officials.
 We would also like to announce that our Middle Distance Coaches, Niki and Nate are the proud parents of a new "little sprinter" named Natalia, which if the weather is nice, we are hoping will make another appearance at the BBQ. 
 
We are very proud of the accomplishments of all our athletes and coaches and  hope that you will all come and join us for our ...

Year End Wrap up BBQ.

  It will be Wednesday July 23.  Practice will end early (around 7pm) and we will have the "Boyd Car B Q", and will be cooking burgers.  
Salad, drinks and
freezies will also be provided.  This BBQ is for all Athletes, Coaches and Parent Volunteers and there is no charge.
Please RSVP at the track just so we have a rough idea of numbers.
We hope to see you there.
 
Thank you on behalf of the OAC Executive,
Barbara Smith-Murray

OAC President
