Summer Open

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Summer Open another great success. We had a lot of competitors from other schools giving some great matches throughout the day.

Thank you to the officials who made it go so smoothly. We were fortunate to have national and international referees Karl Dery, Guy Labatt and Martin Desjardins travel all the way from Montreal along with Jason Davidson from New Brunswick and Heather MacDonald from Nova Scotia. Our own Mandy Li and Harvey Mitchell were key in organizing the day.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the day run smoothly.

See you all next year,

Master Ives
