Thanks to all the coaches, assistants and managers for keeping things going so well with the teams this season - the improvement in play as the weeks went by was very noticeable. Thanks to our umpiring crew - remarkable job this year - but you still earned your pay on!
Thanks to all the team sponsors and special thanks to Tentworks for supplying the tents,tables and chairs, PKG for providing the free souvenir photos of the day, Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic, councillors Scott Davey & Dave Snider and City staff for their support throughout the season (and the volunteer pins), the Kitchener Rangers Street Team (lots of fun), Zehrs and St Francis Animal Clinic for sponsoring the trading cards, Zehrs & Food Basics for the deals on the refreshments (1,700 hotdogs & buns and drinks) and all the volunteers who stepped forward (face-painters, food servers, set-up & clean-up crews, etc.) to help make the wrap-up party a reality. Thanks Erick Traplin for another entertaining musical special and use of your sound system! It only works with everyone contributing!
Special thanks to Canadian Women's (10 time) Boxing Champion, Mandy Bujold, for coming out to make this a special day, not just for her team, but all attendees. What an inspiration! Mandy is off to Rio,Brazil, to compete at the upcoming summer Olympics. All the best to Mandy - Go Girl Go!
