2016 Spring Flag – Week 2

Week 2 BalloonsWeek 2 is in the books and it was another spectacular weekend hosted by CMFA. Thanks to Tracy Frank, CMFA President and Darren Rosenthal, CMFA Field Coordinator and the other Executive members that helped out for having Coquitlam Town Centre ready for another 350 games running over 8 hours this weekend. Even though we had a few rain showers, it helped to keep the players cool, and some coaches cooled down as well. LOL

Thanks to Kim Shuen for keeping the jamboree on schedule and also to Janis Clark for getting all of the scores uploaded by the end of the jamboree. Thanks to Glenn Pencer for arranging first aid attendants from the Justice Institute. And a very special thanks to Rosie Stephen for making sure there were balloons on every field so we could all have smiles.

2016 Spring Flag – Week 1

WOW. What a day we all had. It was great to see over 1800 athletes enjoying 352 games of flag football in gorgeous weather. I’m very proud of the great job that Westside did with hosting our first jamboree of the season at UBC. Thanks to Jayce Barrello, Mike Pauls and Sanjay Prasad and their army of VWWMF volunteers for keeping us all well fed and watered and arranging for Leo the Lion, the UBC Thunderbird along with UBC players and the Vanier cup to be on site for us all to enjoy.
