Although I feel like this is not necessary to say to you all, as you continue to blow me away with your enthusiasm and kindness. I have received MANY accolades this weekend from a ton of people who thanked me and complimented me on what an amazing team I have!! I know I have an amazing team- so much so, that it makes me swell with pride.
I want to thank you all, also, for your support in putting my name forward for the Coach of the Year award in North-Western Alberta. What an honour and I cannot thank you all enough for the pride I have of working with you and you guys truly make me look good and make coaching look easy!! So thank you. It was an honour to represent you all at this amazing event. The Coach of the Year award went to Luiz Martinez who thanked God, his family, his athletes and accepted the award on behalf of all of the coach nominees! He has an AMAZING resume and it truly was an honour to be considered in the same category as someone so decorated as he is and world known! WOW!
A HUGE thank you to the AWG team for putting on a great race event!! And congratulations to those who raced it, including Dr. Shay, who finished a heroic second, to head-waxer Jake!! What a great day and way to spend with you- thank you for helping out and giving back to the ski club! Please (parents and athletes) keep track of your volunteer hours and we will submit them for the ski club. This will help with funding and grant applications in the future for our club.
