The deadline for Pacific International is March 1st.
1. The last regional team workout this season is in Kelowna on Sunday March 3, 10-12.
2. Our BC Open tournament is April 6th. Please keep this date open as we hope all yellow belts and up can compete and we need many volunteers for a successful tourney. The invitation will be posted this week. We are planning to do petit samurai again and add a senior groundwork-only division.
3. There is also an Okanagan Open event in Kelowna [Revised Date May 5th–see trackiereg.com for details]. This event is informal and inexpensive and allows kids who don’t have their yellow belt to compete groundwork only. They will be changing the venue so more info to follow.
4. We still have lots of apple juice on hand. The fundraising goal we’ve set this year is for each family to sell five boxes.
Great work to Kiara, Kiyoshi, Teigan and Nadine who competed at Youth Provincials. Teigan got gold in U14-63 and Nadine Bronze in U16-44 and gold U18-44. Congratulations also to Sydney who refereed and received her Provincial A accreditation. Donna also put in a long day refereeing and Aubrey and Brian had a full weekend–doing all the draws and electronics. With over 300 competitors, it was the largest event we’d done.
Finally, happy Family Day to all you members of the VJC family. Thanks for everything you do to. Without the dedication and support of our members, we certainly would not be celebrating this our 75th year.
