Velox Rugby News
September is just around the corner, and practices have already started. The next men’s training session is Monday, Aug 10th at 6:30pm. This is, of course, at our new home behind Juan de Fuca Rec in Colwood. Let’s get in gear!
Jason Gagnier has been in Alberta this summer, where he has been playing for the provincial U23 squad. He helped them earn a Prairie Championship with wins over Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Congrats, Jason, and we’ll see you back here soon!
The ballots gathered so far certainly show some interesting competitions! For the wing positions, three nominees have so far leapt ahead in the voting: Aaron Frisby, Dean Van Camp, and Roy Wheeldon. Which two will make it? Or, by the end, will it be one of the other nominees: Trevor Cunningham, Matt Kemp, Dave Galbraith, Mike Page, and Graham Thompson? If you want to tip the scales, purchase a ballot and send it in….
Here is how it works. You send payment to me via Paypal ($20 using a Paypal account, or credit card), and I will email you a pdf with profiles for all of the nominees. After reading through, you email back your votes. In the fall, you will be able to pick up your official printed copy that includes all of the results (or, for $5 more we can mail it to you wherever you are in the world).
Those who have purchased a ballot for the Velox Valhallian All-Time All-Stars are reminded to submit their votes soon for counting. If you purchased a hard copy at the club, you can always submit your choices directly to me by email.
