Nine of our members took part in the Vancouver Island Championships held in Duncan on April 26, 2008. While nine members in one of the smallest representations our club has ever made at the Vancouver Island Championships, the performances were outstanding.
We always say that medals aren't everything, but when a medal is earned for every event entered, that's pretty special and that's what happened -- twenty-five events entered and twenty-five medals earned. In addition, three of our members had a "perfect" tournament... Josh entered two events and earned two gold medals, Geoffrey entered three events and earned three gold medals, and Carah entered four events and earned quad-gold!
Excellent work everyone!
