A Message From Rob Crossan
I would like to thank all the volunteers who helped make our U14 Div 1 race a success. Even though they may not have had a son in the race they understood that this event was taking the Jozo Weider Club to a new level. The Technical Director commented on what a great event it was and how on time every thing was. Way to go Jozo!
Picture Day is this weekend. Pictures will be taken on the side of the hill just up from the Inn. We would like a parent volunteer to assist organizing the groups. If you would be willing to help out, please email Rob Tankovich.
